Synopsis for "And a Deadly New Year!"

After Batman has captured the crook, he tries to take him into police custody for stealing a vial of nerve gas from a Government facility. Unfortunately, the crook manages to escape with help from his gang and a few hours later, Batman is informed that someone has threatened the city with the nerve gas in order to have a criminal released from prison.

Batman and Robin must learn the location of a canister of nerve gas set to destroy the population of Gotham on New Year’s Eve, and find the perpetrator of the crime with help from their trusted butler, Alfred. Batman manages to locate the crook who stole the nerve gas, but during the confrontation, the crook is killed by one of his own thugs and Batman is left without clues as to who did the crook gave the nerve gas to. Meanwhile, Robin has managed to infiltrate the GCPD Headquarters, but his investigation turns useless when no information is available. Finally, Alfred is the only one who could find three possible suspects of the threat.

With the information that Alfred provided, Bruce, Dick and Alfred prepare a trap for the responsible to reveal himself and they succeed with only a few minutes to spare before the nerve gas is released. With this victory, Batman and Gotham City can enjoy the New Year's Eve party.
