Synopsis for "The Dead on Arrival Conspiracy"

Batman thwarts an attempted theft of a letter from a post office, but the two thieves escape via an anti-gravity ray. The letter is addressed to Bruce Wayne and comes from Jason Burr, who asks for the help of Wayne's friend, the Batman, and explains that the letter will only reach Wayne in the event of Burr's death. Burr explains the origin of his evil twin brother Kobra, who is the master of a cobra-worshiping cult which seeks to rule the world. Kobra, who feels what his brother feels (and vice versa) through "physical telepathy," has recently kidnapped Burr's beloved, Melissa McNeil. The letter also mentions Kobra's "raising the dead." Accordingly, Batman and Alfred travel by Batjet to the Swiss Alps, to investigate Ra's Al Ghul's Lazarus Pit, which may be Kobra's tool. Once there, Batman fights his way past cobra-cultists, but is finally snared and is handcuffed with Burr to a device which is slowly lowering them into the Lazarus Pit. Kobra, who confronts them with the zombie-like Melissa McNeil, reveals to them that he has modified the Lazarus Pit so that it kills, but instantly restores its victims to life as his slaves, as he has already done with Melissa. Through the Pit, he hopes to convert the leaders of the world to his pawns. A "neural neutralizer" temporarily is canceling the physical telepathy between him and Burr. Batman breaks himself and Burr free of the device, captures Kobra, and uses him to have himself, Burr, and Melissa freed from the cultists. But Kobra has Melissa stab Burr to death, and escapes Batman via an anti-gravity beam. Batman vows that the Justice League will smash Kobra's empire, and that he himself will bring Kobra to justice.
