Synopsis for "The Ratcatcher"

Deep inside the sewers of Gotham City, four men sit in makeshift cells, prisoners of a deranged man who calls himself the Ratcatcher. One of the prisoners - who has long gone blind from his captor's mistreatment - manages to escape his cell, but is spotted by the Ratcatcher. As the "fugitive" desperately searches for a way to the surface, the Ratcatcher, along with hundreds of well-trained rats, pursue him.

The blind prisoner eventually escapes from the sewers, but is mauled by the Ratcatcher's rats moments later. His screams alert Batman, who had been foiling an arms deal nearby; by the time Batman finds him, however, the rats have already torn him to shreds. While the police take over the scene and identify the rats' victim as one judge Wyatt Hogan, Batman follows the rats back into the sewers, where he meets their self-proclaimed master.

Upon seeing his newest "guest", the Ratcatcher decides that Batman is a threat to his plans and orders his rats to attack. Batman is briefly overwhelmed, but manages to drive the rats off with a flare from his utility belt. In retaliation, the Ratcatcher opens a floodgate, intending to drown Batman with hundreds of gallons of sewer water.
