Synopsis for Batman: "Untold Tales of the Bat-Signal!"

The editor of the Gotham Gazette assigns his top crime reporter to create a series of stories about the Bat-Signal and how it has changed people's lives. The reporter starts a crusade to find a story in which the Bat-Signal had been instrumental in saving someone's life, without any external help. In this way, the reporter gets exclusive interviews with Commissioner Gordon and Vicki Vale, who provide him with great stories, but none quite like the one he is looking for.

The reporter finally gets to meet Batman and Robin and he learns of the upgrades done to the Bat-Signal and how helpful it has proved for the Dynamic Duo's crime-fighting career. However, all the stories aren't the exact story he is looking for. Lastly, the reporter visits an exhibition in which the Bat-Signal is being held when Batman informs him of an assassin that has escaped from jail. The criminal soon enters the place and shoots Batman. The reporter helps Batman take cover behind the Bat-Signal and then he decides to turn the searchlight on to blind the killer. The reporter's plan works and he finally has found a story in which the Bat-Signal has saved somebody's life without exterior help.

After the story is printed on the newspapers, Bruce tells Dick that he was responsible for plugging the Bat-Signal to the electric power during the moment of truth. Finally, the Bat-Signal's story is not completely accurate as Bruce had to activate it in the first place.
