Synopsis for "The Doom in the Bat-Cave"

Batman and Robin stop a robbery at the waterfront and shortly after, they receive a threat from one of the criminals, who is planning to kill Batman in the Batcave.

The first murder attempt happens when Batman and Robin return to the batcave and Batman's cape is lit on fire as a result of a chemical that was poured on him earlier. Batman realizes that his cape had been tampered and removes it before it burns him. The killer then tries a second time using the Batmobile's tires. While the Dynamic Duo were outside fighting crime, the killer switched the tires of the Batmobile for regular tires, filled with knockout gas. When Batman stopps the car on the batcave's garage, the tires explode releasing the gas, but fortunately Batman notices the different tires and he gets gas maks for him and Robin.

Batman then receives a last threat indicating that the criminal has placed a bomb in the batcave and that it will blow up at noon next day. Batman and Robin search the entire Batcave for any bomb, but they find nothing. Desperate to find a clue, the Dynamic Duo capture the criminal who has been threatening them and take him to the Batcave, where they try to force him to reveal the location of the bomb. However, the thug doesn't know where the bomb is located and after his confession, Batman realizes that the thug is carrying the bomb on his prosthetic arm. The thug is unaware of this fact and Batman manages to deactivate the bomb.

After the whole situation has been cleared up, Batman deduces that the man responsible for the murder attempt is not the thug they just captured, but the man they saved at the waterfront robbery. Shorly after, Batman captures the real criminal and delivers him to the police.
