Warner Bros. Animation has just released a couple of non-exclusive clips for this week’s episode of Beware the Batman, titled “Broken.” The episode will air as part of Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block, this Saturday, August 10 at 10:00 am ET/PT.
The episode “Broken” centers on strange, life-size metal toy army men who have sprouted all over Gotham, armed with real weapons. When the Batman investigates, he makes a startling discovery – the army men are not toys, but actual living people that have been trapped inside an explosive shell. The clues all point back to a former mob accountant named Humpty Dumpty (voiced by Matt Jones,) who was originally going to testify against the Mob but has gone insane after enduring life-threatening attempts from his old employers. Batman’s biggest problem is the fact that one of Humpty Dumpty’s targets is Lieutenant James Gordon.
