Future End #1 page 1
We find Batman Beyond 5 years from now. He was suppose to go back in time to stop Batman and Mr. Terrific from building Brother Eye, but it seems the time machine didn't take him back that far. We see here Batman Beyond talking to A.L.F.R.E.D and Terry ask's if the real Alfred was like him. And in true Alfred fashion he makes a joke.
Future End #1 page 2
We find out that Terry is 7 years to late to stop Mr. Terrific from creating Brother Eye. And once again we get a funny Alfred remark when asked why he let them land in the wrong time. The time machine band only had one jump so they are now stunk in this time.
Future End #1 page 3
One of the cyborgs from the future hitched a ride with Terry when he jumped time. He asks A.L.F.R.E.D why he didn't tell him that "she" was still alive. Alfred then lets him know that being alive means having brain functions and "She" doesn't. Who is this she?
Future End #1 page 4
Terry gets injured in the fight with the cyborg. We then see this guy from a window way up high watching Terry. This can't be good. And we get more Alfred humor as we find out that Terry has even been born yet in this time period.
Future End #1 page 5
Here we see the mobile headquarters of the Stormwatch. Something is happening to them. Someone has pulled their ship out of the bleed that is located between two universes. They have no idea whats going on. Who could have reached them in between universes?
Future End #1 page 6
Here we see the ship and the Engineer getting taking over by this unknown force. She tells them that she is the storm they have been preparing for. And that's where this sneak peek leaves us hanging. What is going on with the ship and what is the storm that she is talking about? I can't wait to find out on May 7, 2014.
