Synopsis for "The Last Riddler Story"

Batman matches wits with a trio of eccentric criminals - the ambitious but neurotic Mastermind, the super-strong but overly compassionate Mr. Nice, and the intelligent but absent-minded Perfesser - with a jeweled eagle at stake. Meanwhile, Edward Nygma, depressed by his long string of failures as the Riddler, swears to retire from crime upon release from prison.

In an effort to cure their boss' depression, Nygma's henchmen convince him to perform one last heist as the Riddler, and one final attempt at outwitting Batman. To everyone's surprise, the Riddler actually succeeds, as Batman was too occupied with Mastermind, Mr. Nice, and the Perfesser to solve his latest riddle, or even stop him from stealing the jeweled eagle.

Despite Batman catching him moments after the fact, the Riddler is ecstatic over his "victory", and remains so even after returning to prison.
