Batman Beyond and Damian Wayne are going to have to join forces in order to stop Mr. Zero and his radical faction from turning Gotham City into an ice-covered hellscape. Damian will have to put his disrespect for the “pretender” that is Batman Beyond aside if they’re going to stop this mutual foe-and even then Mr. Zero’s power and influence might prove too much for this pair!

    While many of DC's titles are great reads most of the time, Batman Beyond manages to maintain a high quality. Jurgens has managed to take a property that I only sort of liked and make it into one of my favourite titles. If you're not reading this title, I urge you to give it a look. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Jul 22, 2020

    With the combination of backstory for exposition, fight scenes and the introduction of new threats, this is a strong issue of a series I'm growing to like more and more with every read. Read Full Review

    While I may have panned recent arcs in Batman Beyond, seeing the futuristic version of the Bat-Family (Terry, Batwoman, a grown-up Damian, Goliath, an older Grayson, Bruce in the chair) in action was undeniably awesome. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jul 22, 2020

    Batman Beyond #45 was an interesting issue, one that brought about many changes, as well as no shortage of risks. It's going to be one of those plots that pushes Terry, alongside his allies, to the extreme, for good, or for ill. Read Full Review

    Bolstered by heartwarming character reunions and excellent artwork, 'Batman Beyond' #45 is the strongest entry of "The Eradication Agenda" yet. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jul 21, 2020

    Batman Beyond #45 features a gripping first half that suffers only because readers already know the end result and a second half that loses itself a little in the resulting chaos. However, the stakes are at an all time high and I legitimately don't know exactly how our heroes will save the world from Zeh-ro's man-made ice age. With mindful art from Pelletier and sharp dialogue from Jurgens, Batman Beyond #45 overcomes its structural issues and delivers a piece of high stakes action with a surplus of character development for the series' side characters.

    The Batman Universe - James Remolde Jul 23, 2020

    I am looking forward to the future issues in this arc, and I believe we have gotten past the exposition now. The fight in the end and the debut of Batwoman helped make this issue more enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Jul 22, 2020

    I appreciate any story that makes an effort to show things we thought we knew in a new way. This future vision of the League of Assassins is a far more scary threat than the today's iteration. We're treated to context from earlier issues, and we see them at their worst here. Going into the final chapters, it seems that this may be a threat too great for even the assembled Bat Family, making ongoing reading even more irresistible. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 21, 2020

    While I did want more out of the big battle that this issue gave us, this was still a fun issue overall, that gave us some necessary background on the League of Assassins and what we're currently dealing with and showed us the debut of the new Batwoman costume.  I enjoyed the art for the most part here and look forward to seeing how our united Bat-Family plans on taking out their newest threat.
