Synopsis for "Hitman"

Thrax has escaped from a biological weapons facility on Long Island, and Hitman has been hired to kill him. Thrax is able to pass on a plague if he wills himself to do so, and if he dies, his body will expel massive amounts of the plague. Hitman tracks Thrax, but is caught by both Batman and Martin Eckstein. Batman wants to stop the hit, and Eckstein has been hired to kill Hitman in retaliation for killing Joe Dubelz and Robert Dubelz. Hitman trains his guns on both, and convinces Eckstein to aim his gun on Batman so that he can finish the hit on Thrax. Hitman kills Thrax, and is about to destroy the body, when Batman intervenes, claiming he can use a sample of Thrax's blood to create an antidote of the plague. Hitman convinces Batman that there isn't enough time and destroys Thrax's body with a phosphorous grenade. Hitman escapes, and Batman vows to meet up with him again.
