P:R Redesign: Denis Medri’s Batman Beyond!

Note: Uber-hot P:R Regular Denis Medri returns, this time veering away from his redesign series to do a one-off of Terry McGinnis, aka Batman Beyond. This rendition of the future Batman has some tingles of Spider-Man 2099 to me, and I’m not complaining. I love the more demonic facemask and the sinewy openings in the neck, sides and biceps. This is a Dark Knight Gotham would definitely be afraid of. – Chris A.

  1. Love the changes to the armor, but I’m not digging on the mask as much. With every incarnation of Batman, I’m used to seeing the lower part of the face, in one way or another. Sure, it may not make much protective sense, but I like what I like.

  2. I think this is the first redesign of Batman Beyond that I’ve actually liked. Too many of them focus on making it “real” or something and get caught up on weird little details. Nice work!

  3. Too busy for me, and all the pseudo-organic details makes it come off more like “Man-Bat Beyond”, I think.

  4. Never cared for this character, but I really like the mask. It would be neat to see it used on a more traditional Bat-Redesign

  5. I don’t know how to feel about this. I tend to agree with the movie version of Justice League New Frontier when Batman says he set out to scare criminals, not children. This might be a bit too scary. Though it is a beautiful design and really lends credence to the “Batman as urban myth” aspect of his character. All in all a beautiful design, but toeing the line on what I think Batman can be

  6. much fiercer and demonic, i like it. a good look for a more mature terry mcginnis, although when i first saw old bruce in the background i thought he was old abe sapien.

  7. Lovely rendering and I am bananas for the muscle-fiber elements, but I’m not digging on the knees or toes too much. Anka’s had the good sense not to mess with the logo, though (because it’s perfect).

  8. Looks reminiscent of the red armor design worn by Gary Oldman in Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula movie, designed by Eiko Ishioka. I like the organic veining on the membrane of the wings.

  9. I’m sorry for Denis who I appreciate so much but this time i don’t see a real redesign,it’s the same costume of the TV series with some small changes.
    But it’s not his fault,for what i see noone dares to change radically the original design,every author just draw some variant of the black and red costume but noone totally rethinks this costume.

    To be fair, the Batman Beyond suit has NEVER had an open face. Instead, the mask seems to have a movable mouth.
