BatmanA golden sphinx statue suddenly turns up in the city park, with a message that Gotham will soon be ruled by King Tut himself – not the actual Egyptian king, of course, but an insane criminal who has adopted that identity. The Dynamic Duo, investigating the statue, nearly falls to a series of fiendish traps, but Batman doesn’t take the bait, which would lead them away from the Gotham City Museum, where Bruce Wayne is scheduled to unveil an ancient Egyptian mummy. The mummy then astonishes Bruce by coming to life…and kidnapping him. Commissioner Gordon then calls the Batcave for help, and is dismayed when he can only reach Robin.
