No Going Back: An Interview with Batman Beyond's Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel

If you spent a few hours this weekend sitting on your couch and staring in shock at your tablet or laptop, you’re almost certainly a Batman Beyond reader. BATMAN BEYOND 2.0 #28 is one of the most significant installments of the Batman Beyond comic we’ve probably ever published and unsurprisingly, we had a few questions for the two men who scripted it.

“Joker is Bruce's greatest foe, but he's also Jim Gordon's.” – Scott Snyder

SPOILER WARNING: If you have not read DETECTIVE COMICS #879 and do not wish to know what happened, do not read any further.

In the gripping conclusion to DETECTIVE COMICS #879, Jim Gordon was forced to come to terms with the fact that his son really is the cold-blooded monster that Barbara feared he would be all along. And while he and Barbara unmasked James Jr.’s devious plan to destroy Gotham City, The Joker made his way out of Arkham Asylum.

James Jr.’s Plans Revealed

For years, Jim Gordon tried to deny to himself the possibility that his son, James Jr., could be a cold-blooded serial killer. But when Barbara Gordon figures out her brother’s dark plan, Jim will have no choice but to accept his son’s identity and stop him before he corrupts Gotham City from the inside out. And with The Joker managing to break free from the chains locking him up, Gotham City is in need of a hero more than ever before.
