Synopsis for "Infinity Island!"
Batman awakens in a strange room on Infinity Island and is soon attacked by a horde of men, who seem strangely possessed. Unconscious again, the Dark Knight is dragged to another room where he is shown the two classes of lives on the island. A strange voice then offers Batman the option to either become one of his loyal followers or suffer as a slave in the mines. The voice also tells the Dark Knight it has been he who was behind the dealings of Gregorian Falstaff in Gotham City concerning Wayne Enterprises.
Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Catwoman and Robin escape from the clutches of Chin Ho and free a captured King Faraday. Later, the trio follow Faraday's lead and find themselves in a boat on the Indian Ocean, where they are captured by red energy globes and transported to the mines of Infinity Island.
Batman, seeing Robin, Faraday, and Catwoman in the mines becomes enraged and refuses the mysterious voice's entreaty to join him. Dumped with the other three heroes, Batman leads an escape from the mines and they, in turn, head toward the Golden Dome at the center of the island. Inside the dome, the quartet encounters Talia, who has begun to age uncontrollably. Talia states she must join with the mysterious voice as only he can halt the aging process she is experiencing. While Talia joins with the mastermind, Batman and the others have to confront several of the mutates that control the island.
A minute later, Talia emerges from behind a curtain, young again, hand in hand with her supposedly deceased father, Ra's al Ghul. Ra's then offers Batman the “touch of immortality” or instant death for himself and his friends.
