Synopsis for "The Case of Batman II"

Bruce Wayne dies in a car accident, leaving Dick Grayson and Alfred to carry on alone. In order to keep up with his crime-fighting career, Robin starts looking for a replacement for Batman. After searching among top athletes, Robin finally finds the perfect candidate and he takes the man into training with Alfred's help.

After an intensive time training in the Batcave, the new Batman is ready for action and when Commissioner Gordon activates the Bat-Signal, the Dynamic Duo get going to the scene of the crime. Batman II and Robin are almost killed by the criminals, but Alfred intervenes, saving their lives. The criminals are captured and the new Batman has proved his worth.

When Dick and Alfred return to Wayne Manor, they meet with Henry Bush, Bruce's lawyer, who wants to read Bruce's last will to Dick. While Bush is reading the document, Bruce Wayne walks out of the shadows, revealing that he faked his death to learn if Bush was an honest lawyer, but after listening to the document Bush was reading, Bruce knows that his lawyer has changed his will to steal his money. After Bush's plan is foiled, Alfred learns that this whole plot was planned by Bruce and Dick to capture the corrupt lawyer.

Synopsis for "The Grand Opera Murders!"

Bruce and Dick are watching an opera when suddenly there is a murder attempt and they start investigating as Batman and Robin. They are unable to find the killer, but since nobody died, they suspect that whoever is behind the crimes, will try again later.

After a series or murder attempts on different nights, Batman and Robin become part of the crew on one of the operas, in order to locate the killer from the inside. During the last scene, the lead singer is killed as the curtain closes and they finally realize that the killer was in fact the lead singer, who was dying and he wanted to kill some of the crew members before he passed away.

Notes

  • "The Case of Batman II" features a "Batman dies" scenario for the first time in history. It also contains the first expanded illustration of the inside view of the Batcave.
  • In "The Case of Batman II", Bruce Wayne fakes his death and then disguises himself as acrobat "Bill Randall". The name Bill Randall has been used before -- in the Batman comic strip in 1944, Batman and Robin met GCPD Sergeant Bill Randall, who temporally donned the Batman costume when Bruce Wayne was incapacitated by a gunshot wound.
