Superboy fought Amazo in the halls of Gotham Academy, causing some damage to the school. The trophy case featuring Dick Grayson's photo was destroyed, as were a number of lockers, and the fight also caused damage to a science lab and parts of the basketball court. In the basketball court, Amazo fought Superboy, Robin and Kid Flash. Amazo would have crushed Kid Flash in particular, but was forced to become intangible to avoid an arrow aimed at his head,[4] shot by Artemis.[5] Amazo was subsequently defeated.[4]

When a spell from Klarion divided the world into an adult and a child dimension, Gotham Academy's gym was turned into a shelter for younger children in the child dimension. Bette Kane and Barbara Gordon helped care for them.[8]




  1. In its first appearance, in "Schooled", the school's name was written on screen as both the Gotham City Academy (on Robin's computer) and the Gotham Academy (on the photo of Dick Grayson). In "Downtime", it was referred to in dialogue as the Gotham Academy, and Artemis's letter also featured the name Gotham Academy on the letterhead.
