Synopsis for "Scars"

The Huntress comes to Earth-One, seeking advice from Batman, the counterpart of her father on Earth-Two. Shortly afterwards, Batman and Robin go in search of Scar, a maniac responsible for kidnapping people and turning them into grotesqueries, and who has kidnapped Dick's girlfriend, Lori Elton.

Batman decides to introduce Huntress to Kathy Kane, as he considers she would provide her with better advice for her crime-fighting career. While on Kathy's amusement park, Batman picks up the trail of Scar and although he manages to find the criminal's lair, Batman is captured by the madman, who prepares a trap that would deform Lori's face. After Scar explains the motives for his crimes, he leaves the chamber, leaving Batman tied-up, so he could witness Lori's deformation.

Meanwhile, Robin has found the trace of Scars and goes to the amusement park after dark, where he confronts the criminal and delays his escape, allowing Batman catch up with him, even after freeing himself from the trap and save Lori. Robin goes to Lori as Dick to help her after the event and Batman corners Scar in the house of mirrors, where the criminal is forced to face his own traumas.

Synopsis for "Horoscopes of Crime!"

Kathy Kane and Helena Wayne discuss after they were formally introduced by Batman, but Kathy suggests that Helena should seek advice from an active crime-fighter like Batgirl. Like this, they prepare to make a trip to meet with Barbara Gordon.

Meanwhile, Catwoman and Poison Ivy are informed by a fortune teller called Madame Zodiac that their upcoming crimes are most likely to be thwarted by Batgirl and Huntress. Not listening to Zodiac's advice, the evil-doers continue with their capers and they are in fact, confronted by the heroines. However, they are both assisted by Zodiac and they manage to get away, despite being unsuccessful in their crimes.

Afterwards, Barbara, Kathy and Helena get to talk and show their support and admiration for each other. Meanwhile, the criminals plan their next heist and they agree to work together to rob a museum. During this crime, the lady crooks are once again stopped by the heroes and this time, Zodiac is also stopped by Batwoman. Poison Ivy and Catwoman are helplessly captured, but Zodiac manages to escape with a very important relic from the museum.

Synopsis for "There's a Demon Born Every Minute"

After the Huntress has talked with Batman and Batgirl, she returns to Earth-Two using the inter-dimensional transporter in the Justice League Satellite. During this travel, the dimensional barrier is breached, allowing Morgaine le Fey to enter Earth-One's realm and capture the Philosopher's Stone.

Shortly after this, Jason Blood is informed of Morgaine's activities in New York City and he travels there as fast as he can.

Meanwhile in NYC, Kirk Langstrom is waiting at the Maternity Hospital for his wife to give birth to their child. However, several new-borns are transformed into demons by le Fey, forcing Man-Bat and Etrigan to step up and confront le Fey. With the power of the Stone, Morgaine has become much more powerful than Etrigan and Man-Bat, but the latter transforms back into his human form to take the Stone from her posession, taking away her powers and he then uses the stone to transform her into a statue.

Giving the stone back to Etrigan, Langstrom returns to the hospital, where he finally learns that Francine has given birth to their daughter, Rebecca.
