Synopsis for "What Happens When a Batman Dies?"

Batman is lured into a trap by Stryker, a hitman who uses attack dogs armed with poisoned fangs. After Batman has received a poisoned bite, he lies near death in a Gotham City hospital. However, he manages to send a mental message to Deadman, who attempts to aid him in his battle for life. Batman, who has become depressed by his unending battle against crime, clinically dies and meets his parents' spirits in the afterworld, as well as a host of other people the Batman has aided. But the Waynes tell their son that he is more needed in the mortal world, and send his spirit back to his body. With the help of Deadman, Batman manages to rise from his hospital bed, track down Stryker--who is accidentally killed by his own attack dogs--and find an antidote to the poison.
