Synopsis for Batman: "The Mental Giant of Gotham City"

Barney Barrows' ultimate ambition is to become a police detective, but as he applies at the GCPD Headquarters, he learns that he can't pass the mental test to become one. Barrows is allowed to keep a job as a janitor at the GCPD and during his daily cleaning routine, he causes a freak explosion in the Police lab, exposing himself to radiation which swells his mental capacity and head. He figures out Batman and Robin's true identities and forces the Dynamic Duo to do his bidding.

Using his brainpower, Barrows sends the heroes on missions to capture different crooks, but his methods become too ruthless and Batman has to come up with a plan to stop the mental giant. Barrows however, is always one step ahead of the Caped Crusader and he manages to outsmart him. During their last encounter, Barrows brain power and his head return to normal and he doesn't remember anything that happened. In order to help Barrows fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, Batman talks with Commissioner Gordon and asks him to allow Barrows to use a police uniform during his janitor duties, which makes Barrows very grateful.
