Synopsis for Batman: "The Man Who Led a Double Life"

Batman and Two-Face wait for the double headed coin to land and see what decision Kent would make for his life. The coin lands on its edge and doesn't flip over. Kent picks the coin from the floor and tells Batman that he can't decide, now that chance has been denied. At that moment, a police officer arrives at Kent's secret hideout and shoots at the criminal. Batman is alarmed that Kent might be dead, but the criminal survives the shot thanks to his coin. Using all his energy, Two-Face escapes from Batman and the police officer, and a few moments later, after realizing that the bullet struck on the scarred side of the coin, Two-Face decides to abandon his old identity as Harvey Kent.

A short time later, Two-Face has gathered a new gang and started committing crimes, all involving the number two, and always leaving the big decisions to the flip of his coin. One day Two-Face and his gang kidnap an old man, and demand a ransom for his return. Using the Bat-Signal, Commissioner Gordon summons Batman and Robin to the GCPD Headquarters, and he takes them to the house of an old man named Henry Logan, where they learn that the man that Two-Face kidnapped is Logan's double. The Dynamic Duo come up with a plan, and during the ransom exchange, they pose as the relatives of the kidnapped man, behind good disguises. When the old man is safe, Batman and Robin attack Two-Face and his henchmen, but the criminal mastermind manages to escape after he stuns Batman using his coin.

Shortly after, Two-Face starts reminiscing about his fianceé and how much he misses her. Two-Face also remembers how disgusted she was at his sight and he gets an idea. The next day, Harvey Kent arrives at Gilda's home with his face entirely repaired. However, Kent is reluctant to let Gilda touch his face and later during dinner, the reason becomes obvious. The left side of Kent's face begins to melt when it comes closer to a candle and Gilda is horrified to see that his face is still hideously scarred as before. At that moment, Batman breaks into the place and Two-Face thinks that Gilda had prepared this trap along with Batman. The criminal escapes through the window and a few hours later, he goes to the mask shop where he bought his wax mask and burns the place to the ground. The elder son of the owner of the mask shop makes a vow to get revenge on Two-Face. In the meantime, Batman and Robin think of a way to capture Two-Face.

A few days later, Two-Face recruits "Getaway" George to his gang, but he is suspicious of the new member. Then Two-Face and his gang prepare to attack the GCPD baseball match, and when the Mayor of Gotham prepares to deliver the charity funds, Two-Face and his gang attack. However, Batman and Robin are present at the match and with help from the entire GCPD, they capture almost all of Two-Face's henchmen. Two-Face and Getaway George drive back to their secret hideout and there, Two-Face realizes that the man is wearing makeup. Fearing that the man is in fact Batman in disguise, Two-Face starts taking away the makeup and he discovers that he is the elder son of the owner of the mask shop. However, Batman shows up in the place, after being tipped by the young man during the baseball match and without any real effort, Batman takes Two-Face to prison, where he reflects on the fact that his downfall was brought by a double-cross.
