A New Dark Knight
In the future, Bruce Wayne gives up the mantle of Batman. He has protected Gotham for a long time, however he is elderly now. In his final mission, he was investigating the kidnapping of a young teenaged girl. When Bruce was badly hurt by one of the criminals, he resorted to pointing a gun at the criminal. The criminal ran away in fear, and Bruce left the crime scene. Having broken his personal oath to never use a gun in his fight against crime, he abandoned the identity of the Dark Knight and gave up his crime-fighting ways forever.
Bruce later on went to seal off the Batcave and shut down all of his equipment; his last words in costume were "Never again." 20 years later, a 17-year-old boy named Terry McGinnis was helped by an old Bruce Wanye to escape from a gang called "the Jokerz." The Jokerz were defeated by the old Bruce Wayne. He might have been old, but he never looses his touch.
Bruce Wayne needed help to get back inside of his house so that he could take his medicine, so Terry helped him. When Bruce fell asleep, Terry saw a bat inside of a clock he went over to unlock it. When the clock opened up, Terry went down the stairs to see what's under Bruce's house. When Terry found out that Bruce was Batman he wanted to try on a suit, however Bruce woke up and beat Terry out of his house.
Terry went to his house to find his father killed, this made Terry furious. Wanting revenge he asked his girl friend to drop him off at Bruce Wayne's house. While Bruce was somewhere asleep in his house, Terry tied up Bruce's trusted dog Ace and stole the Bat-suit.
When Terry was out finding the murderer of his father, he ran into trouble with the police. Since the police worked for the man that killed his father, Terry had no problem with beating them up a little bit. While fighting, Bruce used the suit lock button in the cave, he began to get beaten by the cop who Terry was making fun of.
When the cop was tired of punching the new Batman around, he picked up his gun. Terry asked Bruce to turn the suit back on so that he would not die, it took some time for Bruce to think this over, but he ended up turning the suit back on.
Later on, Terry found the killer of his father, his name was Derek Powers. Derek gave the word to kill McGinnis' father, however it was his trusted right-hand man who killed him. When Terry confronted Derek Powers' trusted cohort, Terry did not kill him the toxins that Derek was shipping killed him or he just drowned to death. Terry then had the full rights to become the "Dark Knight Of The Future."
