Bruce Wayne now works alone as Batman once again and he tries to keep up with the criminals, but he has become to confident because of Robin's presence. However, Robin soon joins Batman and the duo take away the crooks for good. Robin explains that he sneaked out of uncle George's home, but that he must return soon.
As Bruce also gets back home, he gets a phone call from George Grayson and the man tells Bruce that he is willing to give Dick back to him in exchange for one of Bruce's millions. Instead of giving them what they want, Bruce goes to George's place as Batman and threatens him to sign a confession. George asks Batman for a short time and meanwhile, he contacts a crime boss called Fatso Foley and they set a trap to Batman.
George Grayson calls Wayne Manor again and warns them that their pal Batman has been taken care of. Alfred takes the message and he goes to warn Dick about the situation. Together, Alfred and Robin find the criminals responsible and locate Batman, saving him from a deadly trap.

- Gorilla Hardy (Single appearance)
Synopsis for "The Second Boy Wonder!"
This story is reprinted from Batman #105.
Batman and Robin are returning from a battle with gangster Gorilla Hardy and his men, during which Batman has had to rescue a captive and bound Robin. In the Batcave, Batman changes into his Bruce Wayne civilian identity, but then "Robin" removes his mask and reveals a different face than Dick Grayson's. The "new Robin" claims to be Fred Loyd, son of Olympic Decathlon champion Hank Loyd, trained by his father to athletic perfection. He also claims that Robin, wounded in his encounter with Hardy, stumbled onto his doorstep and asked him to take his place to help Batman, giving him the Robin costume. The Bat-Signal flashes outside and Batman is informed via radio that Gorilla Hardy has escaped en route to prison and is hiding in an amusement park. "Freddy" blackmails Batman into letting him come along or having his identity revealed.
The twosome nab Hardy in the house of mirrors, and then return home, where Bruce and Alfred smilingly assure Fred that he is a worthy replacement for Dick. Angrily, "Fred Loyd" removes his face mask and is revealed as Robin. The two adults burst out laughing, and reveal to the dismayed Dick that he gave himself away when he got out of the Batmobile in a pitchdark Batcave --and went over and switched on the light!
