Plot[edit | edit source]

Batman and Robin have been missing for a long time, and the Riddler is responsible for holding them hostage. The Riddler set challenges in the form of puzzles that teams must overcome, and has also assembled a nefarious device with an unknown purpose called the Nygmachine, which teams should deal with before continuing their search. After teams have disarmed the Nygmachine, the Riddler released a large number of villains, with which teams had to deal by solving their puzzles. After taking down the major villains Poison Ivy, Killer Croc, Firefly and Mr. Freeze, teams finally faced the Riddler and found out Batman and Robin's whereabouts.
