i would like to highly recommend the justice lords beyond crossover arc that recently finished in batman beyond 2.0 and justice league beyond 2.0!
it expands on the story from the JLU episode “a better world” which introduced the “justice lords”, a corrupt, dictatorial version of the justice league. you don’t have to have watched the episode to understand the comic, it explains everything. (i would recommend it, though, because it’s one of the most phenomenal episodes from the series.)
the comic story features blond terry mcginnis, the return of wonder woman, wonderbat and dickbabs romances, eeeevil superman, further verification that dick grayson is good in every single reality, superhero bABIES (completely unrelated to the recent bruce knocking up babs debacle), ethical quandaries, and feelings. too much feelings. you will cry.

Just another orphan growing up in Crime Alley, Jason Todd’s fateful encounter with Batman was sealed when he decided to steal the tires of the Batmobile. Seeing promise in Todd, Batman invited Todd to train as Robin and eventually adopted him as his son. Todd was a quick study, but Batman worried over his aggression and hoped that Todd could fuel his rage in a more constructive manner. Todd later died the hands of The Joker with his biological mother, Shelia Haywood, in Ethiopia.
