Batman: Vengeance is a 2001 action-adventure video game released for PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance, GameCube, Xbox and Microsoft Windows. The game was developed and published by Ubi Soft in conjunction with Warner Bros. and DC Comics. The game is based on the television series The New Batman Adventures, and features most actors from the show reprising their roles.


Batman: Vengeance opens with a Full Motion Video sequence showing a bound and gagged woman named Mary Flynn struggling and crying for help after she had been trapped next to a large bomb at a Gotham chemical plant. The player then takes control of Batman as he arrives on the scene. Mary can be seen squirming around on the ground through a chainlink fence, though it is also possible to observe her from the other side. She is still struggling and attempting to call out to Batman for help during gameplay.

Once the player approaches, Batman lifts her head and removes the tape from her mouth. Mary quickly warns him about the bomb, causing Batman to pick her up while she is still restrained in order to escape. The player controls Batman during this sequence. Afterwards, Mary faints and Batman unties her, learning her identity in the process as well as the fact that she is being blackmailed by the Joker, who presumably forced her into the death trap.

In the next level, Batman witnesses Mary get kidnapped from her home by the Joker's henchmen and gives chase, but she is not restrained during this sequence, instead being carried over the shoulder by a goon. After a third level to rescue Mary as well as her son, it's revealed that she was actually Harley Quinn the entire time and that the act was a ploy to lead Batman into a trap set by the Joker.

Later in the game, Batman goes up against Mr. Freeze's henchmen, a group of women dubbed the Ice Maidens. Like other enemies in the game, the player can incapacitate them with "Batcuffs" to ensure that they don't get back up after being temporarily knocked out.
