Ah, Batman Beyond. The show, in my opinion, is the only Batman story to have achieved the impossible since Batman's first inception in 1939. It managed to turn Batman into a mantle that can be passed down to someone from a younger generation while still staying 100% true to the idea that only Bruce is the true Batman.
Again, people are taking the idea of Bruce quitting out of context. There is a world of difference between Bruce hanging up the cape & cowl in The Dark Knight Returns/Batman Beyond and him doing it in The Dark Knight Rises.
