Synopsis for "Hour of the Serpent"
When Batman is summoned to Gotham City Chinatown for the welcoming of the new year, he comes across Jason Blood, who is also present for the celebration. However, Batman comes across a criminal gang called The Savage Dragons and he is forced to stop them.
Afterwards, Batman and Jason take a walk in town, when they suddenly become aware of the return of the evil wizard Shahn-Zi, who is seeking revenge against Batman for his defeat at the hands of the caped crusader and his ally, The Spectre.
Jason Blood transforms into the demon Etrigan, but his powers are no match for the powerful magic of Shahn-Zi, who defeats Etrigan easily. The Demon decides to go into a trance to contact his master, the wizard Merlin and request the power of transformation from him in order to defeat Shahn-Zi.
In the meantime, Batman is left to confront the wizard by himself and he is defeated in seconds. Shahn-Zi transforms Batman into a real bat and gives the enchantment the time limit until the new year starts, after which the change will become permanent. Etrigan comes out of his trance and confronts Shahn-Zi during the celebration of the new year, where Zi transforms into a snake to confront the demon. Using the powers granted by Merlin, Etrigan transforms into a mongoose and kills the snake Shahn-Zi, eliminating the curse upon Batman, just in time for the coming of the new year.
