Synopsis for "The Monarch of Menace!"
Batman recalls a crook named the Monarch of Menace whom he encountered early in his career. The villain eluded Batman and was never caught. Now years later, the Monarch of Menace is still gloating over his victory. However, his son has not lived up to his father's legacy. The boy decides to wear his dad's costume and prove himself against Batman.
On the boy's first time out he encounters Robin and is easily defeated. Batman analyzes the weapons built-in to the costume and devises counter measures for them.
