Synopsis for "The Joker's Greatest Triumph"

The Joker sends Batman, Robin, and Commissioner Gordon clues to his upcoming crimes in the form of ship models, which initially stymies the Dynamic Duo. During their first encounter, Joker manages to pull off the cowl from Batman's head, finally learning his secret identity. Joker then threats Batman with revealing the truth if he is ever captured and arrested. Batman tries harder than before to catch the criminal, but the Joker manages to escape on every occassion, making the people believe that perhaps Batman doesn't want to capture the Joker in order to protect his identity.

Finally, Batman confronts Joker on a circus, where the criminal manages to capture Batman and removes the mask to learn Batman's identity, but is shocked to see that Batman is a robot. The real Batman appears soon, reveals that he prepared his robot for this moment and the Joker is finally captured. Batman then explains that Joker never knew his identity, because the light stopped him from recognizing Bruce Wayne and he was just bluffing.
