Appearing in "Video Nasties"
Synopsis for "Video Nasties"
Batman stops three guys from beating a college student and recovers a camcorder that was filming the event. Back at GCPD, as the Dark Knight, Commissioner Gordon, and Lieutenant Stanley Kitch watch the homemade video, Batman spots a clue that helps him track down the film maker. In another part of Gotham City, a man named Milton Sladek learns about the film maker’s “little fiasco” and sets up a new scene with the help of a muscle named Tonka. After spending some time as Bruce Wayne at the Southside Boy’s Club watching young street kids train in the art of boxing, Batman spends the early part of the night staking out the video store that belongs to one Oscar Lampet. At closing time, Batman follows Lampet and when another “scene” seems to be playing out; the Dark Knight swoops down on the two “attackers” and confronts Lampet. But from behind, Batman is attacked by Tonka. The huge man batters the Dark Knight as Lampet begins filming. Suddenly, Batman is distracted by strange lights he sees in the sky as Tonka delivers another solid blow to the Dark Knight.
