Synopsis for "Ten Nights of the Beast! - Part III"

The KGBeast blows up a commercial airline plane with both Ralph Bundy, and the influential "General Ridwell" aboard. Batman and Commissioner Gordon continue to suspect Agent Keith Parker of giving information to the Beast, but there is no evidence to confirm thim.

After the next man on the list, a Congressman, is murdered with an exploding doorknob in a hotel, Batman, Gordon and Parker find themselves trapped in the hotel's elevator with the KGBeast raining death from above. Batman manages to climb up the shaft while the Beast is distracted by several police officers, who are then slaughtered by the Beast before he escapes. Batman gives chase and although it is an immensely difficult pursuit, the Dark Knight eventually manages to trap him with a rope that wraps around the Beast's arm, with Batman himself dangling from a rooftop as the counterweight. However, rather than be caught, the KGBeast actually cuts off his own hand with an axe and escapes.

Later that night, Ralph Bundy returns, revealing he and General Ridwell had covertly switched to a train and he escorted the General to safety. It is revealed that the final target on the Beast's list is none other than the President himself, Ronald Reagan. With three days before the Presidents arrives to Gotham, Batman and the others have to find a way to stop the Beast while the assassin visits a local weaponsmith, "Ambrose Dearling", who is required to build a special new gun to replace Beast's hand with.
