Beware the Batman - Monsters

The arrival of a group of heavily armored and well financed thugs roaming the streets of Old Gotham, along with a mysterious savior whom the neighbor has dubbed their Golem, brings Batman (Anthony Ruivivar) and Katana (Sumalee Montano) to Gotham City’s poorest part of town. Unmasking Metamorpho (Adam Baldwin) as the Golem doesn’t stop the mercenaries working for the imprisoned Simon Stagg‘s (Jeff Bennett) daughter Sapphire (Emmanuelle Chriqui) nor the out-of-control District Attorney Harvey Dent (Christopher McDonald) intent on taking down the city’s vigilantes by any means necessary.

Beware the Batman - Nexus

Alfred‘s (JB Blanc) absence begins to effect Batman (Anthony Ruivivar) as the Dark Knight pushes himself to the limits on a consistent basis with no one to pull him back from the edge. The introduction of Harvey Dent (Christopher McDonald) as the Gotham City District Attorney with a grudge against all costumed freaks including Gordon’s “pet” doesn’t help maters when Anarky (Wallace Langham) returns to frame Batman for a series of bombings which Dent is more than willing to attribute to the Dark Knight (even when witnessing evidence to the contrary with his own eyes).

Beware the Batman - Reckoning

Wrapping up the three episode arc, “Reckoning” forces Katana (Sumalee Montano) to face the truth about Alfred (JB Blanc), pits Batman (Anthony Ruivivar) not only against Ra’s al Ghul (Lance Reddick) and the League of Assassins but also a collection of recently-freed super-villains who are sent after the Dark Knight by the Demon’s Head, and offer the newest unofficial member of the Bat-Family a chance to shine. Before the episode ends, with the help of his friends, Batman will stand triumphant over not only the League of Assassins but also Professor Pyg (Brian George) and Mr. Toad (Udo Kier), Magpie (Grey DeLisle), Tobias Whale (Michael-Leon Wooley), Phosphorus Rex (Greg Ellis), and Cypher.

Beware the Batman - Fall

The mid-season finale of Beware the Batman picks up several loose threads from the show’s First Season including Katana‘s (Sumalee Montano) relationship with scientist Jason Burr (Matthew Lillard), the completion of the Ion Cortex, and the League of Assassins‘ interest in both. “Fall” also introduces the show’s first villain who proves more than a match for Batman (Anthony Ruivivar), as a rejuvenated Ra’s al Ghul (Lance Reddick) assumes control of the League and puts his plans into motion.
