New Beware the Batman Clip: Toxic


Warner Bros. Animation has just released a non-exclusive teaser clip for this week’s episode of Beware the Batman, titled “Toxic.” The episode will air this Saturday, August 17, 10:00 AM ET/PT as part of Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block.

Toxic features a new take on an existing DC superhero (one that we feel is extremely underrated): Metamorpho. The episode features Batman responding to a break-in at Stagg Industries, where he rescues a downed security guard named Rex Mason (voiced by guest star Adam Baldwi), who was exposed to a weaponized toxic gas called “Project Metamorpho.” (du-du-du-duun-duuun). This leads to rex’s body mutating, giving him the ability to completely control and transform his body on a molecular level.

However, his lack of control over his new abilities leads him to panic. Rex turned fugitive, before realizing that the metamorphosis is slowly killing him. Batman tries to find a cure, but Rex’s only concern is the woman he loves – Sapphire Stagg (voiced by Emmanuelle Chriqui). Rex will tear Gotham apart at the seams just to be with Sapphie, but the Stagg patriarch Simon (voiced by Jeff Bennet) holds secrets of his own, and will do anything to keep the two lovers apart.

You can check out the clip, in which Batman tries to stop a rampaging Rex Mason, below:
