The Man Who Broke The Bat is the second episode of Batman Season 3 and the 27th episode overall. It is the second part of a four-part story, detailing an insurgency against the vampire regime and the temporary replacement of Batman by the anti-hero Azrael.


PART 2 OF 4: BATMAN DOWN- With Bruce Wayne crippled, Jean-Paul Valley takes up the mantle of Batman to inspire the insurgency but his alter ego resurfaces. The Joker challenges Harvey Dent to a grotesque game, with the prize being this new Batman's head. The GCPD is skeptical of Nyssa al Ghul's latest plan against the vampires. Stephanie Brown finally escapes from Red Hood's clutches, only to run afoul of Bane. CJ Maroni joins forces with Renee Montoya and Marilyn McCarthy to bring in The Joker and Two-Face, while Barbara Gordon tails the escaped Jonathan Crane.
