Prophecy of Doom
is the nineteenth episode of the first season of Batman: The Animated Series
Bruce Wayne becomes concerned when some of his richest friends are seduced into a new age Brotherhood scam by Nostromos, a fraudulent psychic. Nostromos predicted that a gambling cruise liner would go down and convinced Ethan not to board it; the ship did sink (due to a bomb planted in the engine room). Ethan afterwards becomes one of Nostromos's staunchest promoters but his daughter Lisa confides in Bruce her distrust for the club. Bruce joins the Brotherhood in an attempt to debunk Nostromos' claims. Nostromos, predicting the fall of civilization, urges his acolytes to transfer their bank funds to the Brotherhood's coffers.
