Synopsis for "Ten Nights of the Beast: Part II"

Another couple is found dead at the hands of the KGBeast, an important mathematician and her boyfriend, who had opened their morning Orange Juice bottle to find it had been replaced with an identical container of nerve gas. This results in the increasing of the security by the entire Anti-KGBeast task force at a banquet being held for the next victim to insure his safety. Nonetheless, the KGBeast has Salari poison all of the banquet's food, and 80 people are killed, including the presidential advisor on the SDI program. Although Batman gives chase, and manages to get on top of their car, the two terrorists simply point it at a school bus and bail out, forcing Batman to save the lives of the children while they escape.

Batman begins to believe the KGBeast has a mole in their organization, and suspects mainly either mysterious Agent Yevtushenko of the KGB, or the boisterous and seemingly incompetent Agent Parker of the FBI. Alienating the suspects of his plans with Commissioner Gordon, Batman proceeds to interrogate several informants on the streets in order to learn the Beast's most likely next target.

Like this, the KGBeast blows up the hotel room of a "Senator Dayle"; which had actually only contained dummies, using a rocket launcher. The decoy was enough to give Batman the KGBeast location. They fight across the rooftops of Gotham City, and although Batman sticks him with "enough dope to put out any two normal men his size," the KGBeast sticks a knife deep in his forearm and escapes without much effort. Batman begins to worry that he may have finally met someone better at what he does than he is.



Notes

Trivia

  • The "Gotham Excelsior Hotel" is probably a homage to Stan Lee, who uses the word "excelsior" as a catchphrase.
