Bruce Wayne: [Stepping out of the shadows] Over here, Jim.
Commissioner James Gordon: I heard Twitch got away. Thanks to a couple of shadow agents.
Bruce Wayne: And when I tried to nail them, they used some sort of gas to erase their own minds.
Commissioner James Gordon: Yeah, that fits with what little we know about them.
Bruce Wayne: But something Twitch said makes me think they're going after Wayne Tech's new sonic drill tonight when it comes into Gotham. Tell Bullock he should add more guards just to be safe.

Great Art, Famous Voices
3 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story was decent and the artwork was spectacular in this episode. It's always good but it's extra-special here, especially in the opening scene on the Statue Of Liberty. Gary Graham and Douglas Vandegriff are listed as the storyboard artists. They deserve an award. . A villain named "Count Vertigo" has a sonar-type eye socket and some added gizmo that makes anyone near him dizzy and unable to coordinate themselves. He's try to rob Wayne Enterprises of a valuable new piece of equipment and it is up to Batman - and a woman named "Talia," - stop him. The mystery is this woman. Is she a "good guy" or a "bad guy?" It's not really known until the very end.

Some famous actors, as usual, contribute to this fine animated series. In this one, we have Michael York voicing "Count Vertigo," Brock Peters as "Lucious Fox," Helen Slater as "Talia" and David Warner as "Ra's Al Ghul." All of those actors have been famous films, from "To Kill A Mockingbird" to "Die Hard."
