Synopsis for "The Challenge of the Calendar Man"
Batman and Robin meet a new foe, the Calendar Man, who promises to frame crimes around the motif of the five seasons of the year. It is up to the Dynamid Duo to deduce the cryptic meaning of this threat while also trying to stop the crimes of the Calendar Man.
For his crimes, the Calendar Man dresses in bizarre costumes that reflect in one way the season he is representing. For spring, his costume resembles a flower; for summer, this costume can project heat energy; for autum he uses a giant wind-machine while dressed in a "leaf" costume and finally for winter, his costume is a snowman. After four failed attempts to stop the villain, Batman finally deduced that Calendar Man was talking about the 5th season in Inda, known also as the Monsoon season. Batman instantly knew that Calendar Man's was posing as a Marajah magician and soon captured him.
