The lost Bat trophies

"In a Channel news exclusive, could Batwoman be responsible for the throwback blowback? The explosive bombshell provided by the Jeturian CEO Jada Jet asserts it's no coincidence the city's been terrorized by flashback villains from Gotham past. You're telling us the Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, they're all a result of a major catastrophe at the hands of Batwoman?"
"Batman kept his enemies' weapons under lock and key. Batwoman let them out of her sight and into the hands of would-be killers."
"Just this morning, it was reported that Batwoman stopped Poison Ivy from rupturing the Gotham Dam."
"You're missing my point. Why was Poison Ivy at the dam in the first place? Didn't Batman put her away a decade ago, and, yes, she stopped it from total collapse. But the dam still broke. There have been reports of flooding all over Gotham. It's time to face the city, Batwoman. Admit what you've done. Turn yourself in before you do any more damage.
"
