Batman and Robin capture some criminals, but the loot disappear without a trace. As soon as this starts happening, someone starts writting letters for Batman under the alias of Mr. Mystery and all of the letters contain information only known to Batman and Robin. Robin becomes worried that they are being spied, but Batman concentrates exclusively on finding the missing loot from the crimes they stop. Soon, Batman learns that the thugs have been using baloons filled with helium to take the loot upwards where some crooks on a helicopter retrieve the stolen items.

When word of the unfortunate accident reaches Batman, he decides to take Wilson's place and visit his son, Tommy. Wilson is taken to a hospital, but the doctors expect him to recover very soon. Meanwhile, some criminals have learned of the connection between Batman and his "son", and they kidnap Tommy Wilson in order to blackmail Batman. As Ed Wilson recovers, he learns of the dire situation his son has been placed and he tries to save him from the criminal that kidnapped him. Wilson's intervention gives Batman the chance to take down the criminals and save the boy.
After these events, Wilson reveals the truth to his son, who is proud of his father's courage.
