Spellbinder is back in Gotham City, and this time he is preying on High School students at his V Room Arcade. The V Room is an addicting alternate reality system that takes young teenagers and students out of their mundane lives and into a false reality that brings them hope and joy. However, the side effects from this V Room Arcade are greater than anyone is willing to say. With the help of Max, Terry investigates and finds that this V Room arcade is beginning to destroy these young kids lives.
“Hooked Up” is the eighth episode in the second season of BATMAN BEYOND and it is quite an interesting episode. The only issue I had with this episode was the fight between Spellbinder and Batman at the end of the episode was lackluster and really didn’t pay off in the end. Other than that the story whips at break-neck speed and is very intriguing. - Justin Shanlian
