Did You Know?


One of the very few episodes to depict actual deaths. The Society assassins throw an informant off the Statue of Liberty. Afterward, they appear to commit suicide via gas although Batman later states it only erased their minds. See more »


Batman states he was able to get through the vertigo trap by keeping his eyes closed and relying on his other senses. Vertigo affects the vestibular system which coordinates balance and is linked to the auditory system. Therefore closing one's eyes would not stop or even lessen the symptoms. In fact, closing your eyes could make the symptoms worse by further disorienting your balance. See more »


Talia: [shoos a rat away from Batman while she tends to his wounds] Filthy creature!
Batman: I've been called worse.

Great Art, Famous Voices
3 February 2009 | by 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."
