An armored car was stolen by Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin, Mr. Freeze, and Riddler. Riddler tried to get away with the armored car using his helicopter but the Bat Family went into Launch Mode. Robin's Redbird produced a ramp and Batman, in the Batmobile, guided Batgirl on her Batgirlcycle up the ramp. She made contact and slapped cuffs on Riddler then forced a safe landing on the highway.

Riddler planned to win the annual sandcastle contest at Gotham Point Beach with his sophisticated rendition of the Daily Planet building in Metropolis. To make sure he won, he stole an excavator from a Cobblepot construction site. Batman arrived in the Bat-Truck but Buff's low self-esteem about not being graceful hampered the pursuit and they were buried in building supplies. Riddler couldn't resist riddles that swapped out "cat" with "bat" to Batman's chagrin. Batman later uncovered "sand" was the clue in his riddle and intercepted him at Gotham Point. Riddler gasped at the realization Batman solved his riddle then paused and wondered why he was surprised since Batman always solved them. Using the Bat-Truck's winch, Batman wrapped up the excavator. Riddler confessed to his plan but a seagull landed on his sandcastle and destroyed it. Riddler surrendered and noted there was sand in his shoes.

Riddler stole a valuable shipment of gold. Batman pursued him in the Batwing but Riddler managed to block his view from the cockpit by dumping a bunch of question mark devices. Green Arrow suddenly flew into Gotham City with his Arrowplane and helped clear the Batwing's visor of question marks. Batman insisted he had the situation under control but Arrow didn't believe him. Arrow taunted him with a riddle: how did the villain escape two crime fighters. Batman answered, he didn't. Riddler was annoyed and managed to clip a wing of the Arrowplane but both Batman and Arrow snagged a leg of Riddler's helicopter and held him upside down until he surrendered.

The Amusetta Stone, the oldest, most valuable riddle, was on display at the Gotham Art Museum. Riddler planned to display it in his lair with the perfect question-mark-shaped accent candles. He easily infiltrated the museum, avoided the infrared laser grid, and grabbed the stone. Batman arrived to stop him. Riddler breached a laser, tossed up three artifacts, and escaped the room before it was sealed. Riddler swapped the real stone for a fake but his get away was blocked by the Bat-Truck. The truck stomped the street and knocked Riddler off his feet. Batman recovered the stone but Riddler fled in his helicopter taunting him not to act so puzzled. Batcomputer found Riddler in ten places around the city. Riddler projected several holograms of himself in places like the edge of the forest and Gotham Amusement Mile while he waited at Gotham Point.

At the same time, Batman and Buff realized the fake stone was a puzzle after realizing the phrase "Don't act so puzzled" was being repeated. Moe reassembled it and a holographic map was projected pointed to the Gotham Point Pier. Riddler was about to depart with the real stone but Batman and Bat-Truck tricked him with holograms of the former. Riddler jumped over the pier into the sand then climbed back up and ran for his helicopter but ran right into the real Batman and was handcuffed. He realized the Bat-Truck was projecting the holograms and admitted it was more than tough.

Meet The Batwheels: Robin and Redbird confronted Riddler when he tried to break into S.T.A.R. Labs. Batcomputer gathered intel that the Riddler was planning something at Gotham Art Museum and asked Batwing to fly by the museum during her patrol. She spotted Riddler exiting his helicopter in front of the museum. He defaced a banner with a green question mark and told a riddle about not trusting an artist because they were sketchy. Batwing used reverse turbo air to knock Riddler off his feet. He was wrapped up in the banner he defaced and wondered why he smelled like coconut and bubble gum. The police arrived soon after.
