BatmanThe disappearance of an eccentric admiral and his light-bending invention is reason enough for Commissioner Gordon to send up the Batsignal. Batman and Robin board the Batcopter to chase the admiral’s missing boat, only to watch it disappear from the water. One exploding shark later, clues begin piling up to an unholy alliance between Batman’s greatest foes: the Joker, the Riddler, the Penguin, and Catwoman are working together. Barely together, at any rate – their partnership is a fragile and fractious one, each one jockeying for the right to boast that he or she wiped out Batman. Catwoman’s plan is put into action: she will pose as Russian reporter Miss Kitka and catch the eye of millionaire Bruce Wayne, who will then be kidnapped by the villains and held hostage until Batman comes to his rescue. Bruce, of course, is all too aware that Batman won’t be saving him, and has to engineer his own escape. Unaware that Miss Kitka is Catwoman, Batman and Robin return to the scene of the crime to save her, only to find another trap. While the Dynamic Duo is kept busy by this double-cross, the quartet of criminal masterminds hatches a plan to capture the leading diplomats of the world’s most powerful nations, plunging the world into chaos and allowing them to seize control…unless, of course, Batman and Robin throw a dash of cold water on their scheme.
