Synopsis for "The Armored Batman"

This story is reprinted from Batman #111.

After a man in a trenchcoat appears at the Gotham City Hall of Fame and tells the assembled reporters to let Batman know that Blair Graeme, is after him, Batman and Robin, who arrive shortly afterward, are apparently thrown into a panic. Saying they face terrible danger, they immediately leave and, when they reappear, are clad in suits of armor. Batman and Robin are able to carry out their various tasks with the cumbersome metal clothing on, using chains instead of ropes to swing on. But Vicki Vale is determined to learn the secret of Blair Graeme, and learns from a member of the Gotham Scientific Foundation that Batman has been called in to help them solve a recent robbery, though not apparently by Graeme.

Finally, the reason for their armor becomes apparent when they trap a trio of thieves who had stolen "atomic fuel" from the Foundation; Batman and Robin have been wearing radiation-proof suits under it. Gordon and Batman let Vicki know that they feared a panic if the news of the radioactive material theft were leaked, and Vicki gets Batman to confess that he was actually Blair Graeme to help set up the deception. She informs him that if he were in real danger he would have kept clear of crowds, which he did not, so she guessed he was faking it. Batman replies that he will never laugh at her deductive abilities again.
