"Lady-X" is the eleventh episode of Gotham Girls.


Catwoman begins to climb the Tower Top Gym before Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, too and sometimes Batgirl.

A mysterious woman covers the headlines: the mysterious criminal Lady-X, who has systematically earned the ire of Harley Quinn (using a pie as a gimmick while taking the mayor's wife hostage), Catwoman (stealing the Cat's Paw Opal) and Poison Ivy (setting fire to the Cloyster Woods as a distraction). All concerned agree that she has to be stopped. Catwoman tracks her to the Tower Top Gym, Poison Ivy uses a set of seeds to grow a vine and bring them to the top floor, and Batgirl follows all three of them.

Batgirl and Catwoman manages to put Lady-X out of harm's way.

All five meet in a steam bath, where Lady-X briefly gives them a slip. They engage in a confused chase through the upper levels of the gym, until they finally corner their target in a weight room. A brief battle ensues, but working together, the four Gotham Girls manage defeat her, and the story of her capture appears on the front page of the Gotham Times.

Background information

Production inconsistencies

  • This episode features several instances in which the animation does not reach the edge of the screen.


  • The final battle uses music reminiscent of the fights from the 1960s Batman television series starring Adam West. In particular, when Lady-X rolls a barbell at the girls, she re-enacts a scene from one memorable conflict in the series, where Joker used the same attack.

Poison Ivy: So?
Harley Quinn: So? She used a pie! A pie!!
Poison Ivy: Oh, what kind?
Harley Quinn: I think it was a meringue of some sort, or maybe lemon, or... [pauses, annoyed] It doesn't matter! Pie is my M.O.!! [throws a pie past Poison Ivy, hitting a picture of the Joker hanging on the wall] Ha ha ha ha ha! That gets me every time...
