    On the whole, comic book adaptations from other media tend to be somewhat forgettable. It's very hard for a comic book to capture the essence of the original. But Dan Jurgens has managed to capture the essence of the Batman Beyond cartoon in this series. It's a worthy continuation of the series that is worthy of being considered canon. I will miss reading this title, but here's hoping Terry will be returning soon. Read Full Review

    It's been a long, strange journey for Batman Beyond, starting mired in the dark future of Future's End and turning into a genuine sequel to the original cartoon. And through it all, Dan Jurgens has been steering the ship to a satisfying conclusion. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond #50 leaves Terry McGuinness in an excellent position to continue onto new adventures, while also serving as an excellent end cap for one of DC Rebirth's longest running and most consistent series. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 29, 2020

    The appearance of Wonder Woman and the use of one of the television show's most popular villains works to provide Dan Jurgens with a way to close out his 50-issue run in style. Given what we see to close out the issue, it will be interesting to see if a Batman Beyond Justice League is in the works somewhere in the near future. Read Full Review

    I have been a big Beyond fan ever since the Batman of the Future; it got renamed for UK audiences, cartoon aired and I have a number of the previous series. Under his watch, Jurgens has given this oft used universe a sense of its own continuity, it's own weight so to speak. Granted, Jurgens had a choice with this book; would he be bold or not? Rightly or wrongly, he went the Picard route which allows others to play in this part of the DC Universe without having too carry over too many aspects from this successfully consistent series.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Dec 22, 2020

    Batman Beyond #50 should satisfy most readers who have made it to this point. I would've liked to see the series' ensemble cast get more attention, but this month's guest star doesn't take the focus too much away from the true heart of the book. While the villain of the week approach doesn't fully justify its presence, putting Bruce in the hospital garners enough drama to keep loyal readers on their toes. If you've stuck with the series until now, this is an easy purchase, but newcomers are better served by either waiting for the inevitable "reboot" or by starting at the beginning of Jurgens' solid run.

    This was a good issue, not a bad issue, but no real wow factor. Batman Beyond ends with a murmur in my opinion. Read Full Review

    While I dig the art and the idea of calling back to classic characters for this finale... I just wish they would have made sense to the continuity we've been establishing for a Batman Beyond in this timeline for years now. Sadly that's not the case though and we just have characters thrown in here just for the wow or nostalgia factor while I would have liked a good story to end things out instead. Read Full Review

    A teaser for what's to come? Not entirely that great a story on its own.

    Not a bad ending. Good to see Wonder Woman back, but I would have rather her resemble how she looked in previous "Beyond" series', than her current film iteration. Such a Marvel thing to do - that didn't really fit into what DC is known for. This issue felt more like a promo for "WW1984" than a Batman Beyond send off.
    Still, Jurgens behind the pen and Inque chosen as the main villain was enough throwback to keep me engaged in another plot where Bruce Wayne is mortally threatened by medical complications due to his old age.
    I love this corner of the DCU want to see another Justice League Beyond book or any of their members get a solo , hell, bring back Zeta - but I'm good on another Batman Beyond title after this 32 page Wonder more
