- I just gave him a new way of looking at the world. By the way I'm the new Spellbinder in town.
Appearing in "Will It Go 'Round in Circles"
Synopsis for "Will It Go 'Round in Circles"
Spellbinder and his girlfriend, Fay Moffit, set a trap for Batman and Robin. The duo managed to overcome the illusions prepared by Spellbinder and captured all of his henchmen but Billings and Moffit escaped.
Later Bruce was dissed at the golf field by J. Devlin Davenport. That night Batman and Robin went out on patrol to search for Spellbinder. He was staying at The Excelsior Motel. When he turned the TV on, Neron spoke through the TV and offered the chance to create real illusions without tricks in exchange for the soul. Billings rejected the offer but Fay drew a gun and shot Billings dead. Then she asked Neron if the offer was open to anybody or just for Billings to which Neron answered that he was actually speaking to her all the time.
The Major Crimes Unit was called upon to investigate the murder and Montoya went on a date with Johnny. Batman and Robin investigate a possible robbery target. When they arrived to the place they found that the guard was having all kind of delusions. They meet Fay as the new Spellbinder with the powers given to her by Neron. She twisted the duo's reality perception and attempted to get away with the stolen gold. When Batman and Robin managed to follow her, she demonstrated the limits of her new powers by taking Batman and Robin into a surreal white nothingness.
- No special notes.
- Spellbinder hides in a Motel named The EXCELSIOR MOTEL. This is probably an homage to Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee, who uses the word "excelsior" as a catchphrase.
