Synopsis for "Whatever Will Happen to Heiress Heloise?"
Batman comes across a young lady called Heloise Madigan and saves her from three men who sought to murder her. Batman then learns that Madigan has recently become the heiress of a big fotrune and that she has been targeted by the underworld. When Batman takes her to a safe place, he learns that the girl is not really Ms. Madigan, but a look-alike called Colleen Kiernan.
When the truth about their identities comes to light, the real Heloise is attacked by some goons and Batman arrives in time to save her. In the meantime, Ms. Kiernan is conferring with Kenneth Rogers, the man behind the attacks and Kiernan's partner in crime. When she tells him that she wants out of the operation, Rogers threatens to kill her and replace her with another similar looking person, but just before he could commit the crime, Batman arrives and captures Rogers and his gang, preventing more crimes against Heloise Madigan.
As an appreciation demonstration, Heloise offers Batman a large sum of money, but Batman refuses it and tells her to give the money as a donation to the Wayne Foundation.
