The Timmverse is hands down my favorite interpretation of the DC Universe. Whether we’re talking about Batman: The Animated Series, or Batman Beyond, all the way up to Justice League Unlimited, no adaptation has ever reached the heights of how good these shows are with their interpretations of these heroes.
