8. Beware the Batman
Beware the Batman is one such show that deserves a second chance. This series aired on Cartoon Network for one season from 2013-2014, with only 26 episodes produced. While it may not have had the staying power of some of its predecessors, it was still a great show in its own right.
The show featured a younger version of Batman, one who was still learning the ropes of being a superhero. He was joined by his new partner, Katana, a skilled martial artist and swordswoman. Together, they faced off against classic villains like Anarky, Magpie, and Ra’s al Ghul.
Beware the Batman was a departure from some of the other shows that had come before it. It featured a more modern and stylized animation style, with CGI animation that made the action scenes feel more dynamic and fast-paced. The show also took inspiration from the lesser-known Batman comics, like Grant Morrison’s run on the character, which helped to give it a fresh and unique feel.
One of the most interesting aspects of the show was its portrayal of Batman’s relationship with his allies. While other shows have focused on Batman’s more well-known allies, like Robin and Batgirl, Beware the Batman introduced a new character in Katana who added a new dynamic to the show. The two had a mentor-mentee relationship that helped to flesh out both characters and make them more relatable.
Beware the Batman did not last long enough but it was still a great show in its own right.
