S02 E07Nov 6, 1999
Once Burned Nov 6, 1999 When a daring robbery of a high-stakes poker game between criminals goes awry, Batman is alerted by the sound of gunfire. When he arrives on the scene, he discovers to his dismay that the thief is none other than Ten, of the Royal Flush Gang. Before she escapes, Ten tries to tell Batman that things aren't what they seem. Because of his feelings for Ten (aka Melanie Walker), Terry is convinced that she's telling the truth; Bruce Wayne isn't so easily moved. When Terry returns home he finds Melanie in his room. She tells him her family has been captured by Jokerz, and that she's being forced to steal in order to ransom them. Terry walks a fine line with issues of trust; beyond his usual lies to Dana and his family about his double life, the situation demands that he also tell half-truths to Bruce Wayne, Max (who knows his identity), and Melanie. And can he trust Melanie's story about her family's kidnapping?

Hooked Up Nov 13, 1999 Spellbinder returns. The place to be is VRRoom, where simulators provide you with your greatest fantasy through virtual reality. But there's a new VR arcade in town, where the simulation is even more realistic. The only problem is that kids are getting addicted, needing more of an escape from the real world with every use -- leading to increased serotonin levels in the brain and putting the overdosed kids into a coma. Batman has another dilemma, with Max insisting on being a more active partner. The consequences are disastrous: when she tags along with some kids to get a lead on the new arcade, she ends up becoming addicted herself.

Smitten with Dana, he promises to always be there for her if she'll live underground with him. Henry Rollins makes his first appearance as the voice of Mad Stan. Easily Batman's funniest foe, Stan is a comic exaggeration of Rollins -- not only does he look like him, he has a slightly distorted version of the singer's own personality, distrusting the government and seeing conspiracies everywhere. His solution: blow everything up.

After investigating, Batman discovers that the parents are anything but; posing as teachers for a special school, they've kidnapped the girl, hoping to add her psychic abilities to their organization, the Brain Trust.

There, he and two other kids become real-life Sentries, complete with flaming swords and flying discs. After a raid on Gotham's hall of records, Harper tells the kids that Sentries of the Last Cosmos is more than a game; in a nod to The Last Starfighter, Harper -- calling himself the Wise One -- claims that the Sentries' war against the Dark Regent is real, and that the game is used to recruit trainees.
