Synopsis for "The Riddle-Less Robberies of the Riddler"

The Riddler breaks free of prison and leaves behind a riddle, written upon the cell wall in black shoe polish. The warden calls in Batman and Robin to investigate and they immediately begin patrolling the city awaiting signs of the Riddler's ubiquitous riddles.

Meanwhile, the Riddler decides that he must break his psychological compulsion to telegraph his crimes by leaving clues for Batman and Robin. Adopting a "physician heal thyself" philosophy, he decides to start his criminal career anew – but without leaving his trademark clues at the scene of each crime.

As the days pass, Batman and Robin discover several strange clues with no apparent connection to one another. One is a nine-inch long empty envelope. Another is a map of Minnesota, and the other is a Honeysuckle plant anonymously delivered to police headquarters. The Caped Crusaders consult Robin's riddle book and discover a connection that leads them to the Riddler.

They encounter the Prince of Puzzles at the Corsican Glove Factory and engage his henchmen in combat. They apprehend the Riddler, and he demands to know how Batman and Robin found him, as denies providing his trademark riddles at the scene of his crimes. He soon discovers however that he has been subconsciously leaving clues behind, even though his active mind was unaware of it. Batman and Robin bring the Riddler promptly back to prison.
