The Rundown: Terry McGinnis comes to terms with his alter ego as he and his associates work to stop the takeover of New Gotham.

Batman contact Barbara Gordon and asks for her aid in order to protect the city from an AI takeover. 15 minutes to midnight, Batman enacts his plan with the aid of several like-minded groups including the Clownz and former GCPD. Then, a battle commences with Batman and Donovan Lumos at the forefront. Afterwards, the city begins to return to normal and the aftereffects of the series events are discussed. Finally, Terry and Beam have a well-deserved night out together.

The Story: The conclusion of this mini-series was done in a concise and appropriate manner. The final battle was dynamic, but I was surprised by many of the participants. In the end, we learn that the story of Terry McGinnis will continue in 2023. As the story also leaves room for a storyline continuance, it will be interesting to see what new plotlines will develop from this piece. I am also curious as to the next step in Terry’s journey. I appreciate how this series deals with his coming to terms with Bruce’s death and what that means for him as a superhero. I look forward to following his progression in the future.

The Art: This issue is filled with brilliant colors featuring a mainly blue color palette. The realistic artwork and dynamic styling make for a youthful and energetic tone that perfectly complements the story. The detailed panels are well crafted, and the action sequences are eye-catching. I was completed transported with the turn of each page.
