Beware the Batman
Magpie appears in the episode "Secrets". Unlike in the comics (where she is publically called Margaret Pye and is a petty thief going after shiny objects), she is originally named Margaret Sorrow who not only goes after shiny objects but also targets the doctors who experimented on her back when she was in Blackgate Prison. The experiments were meant to reform her which worked for a little will until she later forgets her past and develops a split personality. In the day she works as the bubbly assistant to one of her former doctors. By night she becomes Magpie. When she finds her doctors she uses a device that makes them forget all their memories. After several fights with Batman she finally is able to capture him and tries to use the device on him however he breaks free. Batman is then able to stop her from using the device on one her doctors in time and captures her.
She later appears in the episode "Attraction" where she is in prison however after seeing Batman and Katana turning in a criminal she breaks out and goes after them. She fights them in Gotham but gets away and goes on a crime spree. She robs stores and leaves signals for Batman. Batman goes to her hideout in an abandoned lab and fights her however she is able to trap him. Katana comes to fight her however Magpie defeats and captures her. Magpie buries her in a grave in a cemetery where her alter ego Margret Sorrow was buried. Batman is able to deduce this when she sends him a picture of her buried. Batman suspects that she is in Margret's grave and digs it up however she isn't in there. Magpie gloats at Batman for his failure and they fight again however this time Magpie poisons Batman and pushes him into a hole. Katana however is able to dig her way up and fight Magpie while Batman gives himself an antidote. They are then able to knock out Magpie and she is arrested again.
In the episode "Reckoning" she is among the many criminals that are released by Ra's al Ghul from prison and went after Batman so that Ra's would give them a piece of the city. However Batman tricks all the criminals and they all turn on each other. Batman then leaves them fighting.
In this show she is voiced by Grey DeLise.
