Year One: Building the team
Sometime after Bruce Wayne left Gotham City, his cousin, Kate Kane returned to Gotham and befriended Luke Fox. They then began working together to primarily defeat the Wonderland gang and their leader, Kate's twin sister, Beth Kane; with Luke providing the tech support for Kate. However, the duo also faced many other threats in the city; such as Natalia Knight, Duela Dent, and Tommy Elliot.
Year Two: A new Batwoman
Upon her leaving National City, the plane carrying Kate Kane crashed landed and while the Batsuit was recovered by Ryan Wilder, Kate was nowhere to be found. Since the citizens of Gotham needed "Batwoman" because she is a symbol of hope and courage in a city full of crime and depravity, Ryan is allowed by the team to wear the suit. Later, Ryan officially joins the Bat team because it is feared that Alice has a grand scheme for Gotham.
The Bat team has a meeting about whether Batwoman should work with Crows Security in trying to find Kate; Ryan is against it; due to the organization's immoral and dishonourable ways, but Mary and Luke are for the alliance. Luke persuades Ryan, However, ultimately, after two Crows agents leave Wolf Spider for dead after hitting him with their SUV, Ryan declares that she is the leader of the Bat team, and that Luke and Mary will stop comparing her to Kate. After the funeral of Kate and inspired by Bruce Wayne, Ryan establishes three rules for the Bat Team to follow so that there is a legacy left after they remove Gotham's villains.
Later, Sophie Moore joins the Bat team after discovering the secret identity of the new Batwoman and erasing Ryan's criminal record from the Crows' database to keep others from discovering it. To save the lives of Ryan and Mary from Cluemaster, Sophie is permitted to enter the Batcave while Luke saves Stephanie Brown from her father's schemes. Days later, as Sophie quits the Crows, Crows agent Russell Tavaroff shoots Luke when he reaches for his phone. Luke fell into a coma and was framed by the crows, but Mary asks Evan Blake to give him the desert rose cure at the hospital while Ryan acquits him. Luke finally wakes up when Jacob Kane decides to disband the crows.
Year Three: The Bat trophies
The year began with a new criminal named Liam Crandle who started using the Mad Hatter's hat to become the second Mad Hatter and start chaos in Gotham City. Now with the help of Alice, the team faced off against a young man named Steven, who obtained Waylon Jones' tooth, leading him to become a new version of Killer Croc. They also dealt with Mr. Freeze's missing liquid nitrogen, and Professor Pyg. After all of this, Mary felt ignored and neglected by the Bat Team, and got infected by one of Pamela Isley's vines and became the second Poison Ivy.
