Terrence McGinnis was born in the year 2023. By his own admission, he was a “bad kid.” One night, he discovered that Derek Powers was responsible for his father’s death. Terry seeked Bruce’s assistance in bringing Powers down but despite his insistence, Wayne said he was no longer the Dark Knight. McGinnis embraced the mantle to become Wayne’s successor as Batman to confront his dad’s killer, discovering the latter’s plan to mass-produce biological weapons. In the end, Powers, who was exposed to his own hazardous chemicals, experienced the onset of his mutation into Blight. Convinced there was still a need for a Caped Crusader, Wayne “hired” the 5’10”, 170 lb McGinnis to be his Alfred, secretly training him for what lied beyond.
