Batman and Robin travel backwards in time to ancient Rome to rescue Professor Nichols, who is trapped in that time. Upon arriving in ancient Rome, the people recognize Batman as the great Batmanus of legend as a consequence of Batman's previous time travel to Rome. Batman and Robin learn that Nichols has been captured by an evil King and they decide to rescue their friend. Using modern science and technology unknown in that era, the Dynamic Duo build a hot air balloon in order to escape. Upon returning to the present, Nichols decides that if he ever needs to learn something from the past, he would just send Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson as he has always done.
