Batman and Robin trail the Green Hood Gang to Madcap Island, a place dotted with wealthy men’s summer homes, all built in the symbol of a business firm or an object someone wanted to base a house on. While in the place, they come across an apparent killer on the loose and they start chasing the man. When the man turns up dead, Batman realizes that he was a law enforcer, looking for the Green Hood Gang as well.

Synopsis for "The Alien Boss of Gotham City"
Batman and Robin seem stymied by the otherworldly weapons of the Gimmick Gang, whose leader is unmasked as an apparent alien. The gangsters are sucessful on their crimes until Batman deduces that the alien is not what it looks like. On the next heist perpetrated by the gangsters, the alien apparently delivers them to the authorities and then goes to the home of a notoriuous gang boss. In the house, the alien explains that he is truly an alien and that the gang boss impersonated him, using the alien devices found in a spaceship on the outskirts of Gotham. Afraid of the alinen, the gang boss gives a confession, but also pretends to attack the alien with one of the space weapons. Robin strikes at that moment, disarming the gangster and soon, Batman takes off the alien costume, revealing that the whole situation was a hoax to make the gangster confess. As Batman takes the criminal to the police, he explains that he realized that the alien had to be a normal human in disguise after he spoke a common human slang phrase.
