Brane Taylor was the Batman of the 31st Century.


In the 31st Century, there will be a new Batman and Robin. Inspired by archival footage of the original Dynamic Duo, Brane Taylor and his nephew adopt their identities in the year 3051. The new Robin soon breaks his leg while fighting one of the henchmen of the evil Yerxa. Brane Taylor decides to travel back in time to recruit the assistance of the original Robin--Dick Grayson. Some time after the successful completion of that case, Taylor again travels to the past to aid the original Batman while he recovers from a broken arm. Reporter Vicki Vale suspects Taylor of being an impostor, but she changes her mind after a successful ruse involving the original Batman. [1]

Brane was summoned to the present time by Batman and Robin, in order to help them prevent Vicki Vale from learning Batman's secret identity. During his time on the present, Brane posed as the Batman of 1955 and he captured some wanted criminals. However, his physique almost gave away his real identity, but before Vicki could expose him, Brane switched places with the real Batman and her plan was stopped. Afterwards, Brane returned to the future he came from.[2]
