Synopsis for Batman: "The Robber Baron"

An arrogant lordling of the underworld called the Robber Baron stages a series of spectacular robberies, of seemingly inaccessible places, by firing a grappling hook with a special cable attached to it, at his objectives. The Baron and his henchmen would ride along the cable, high above the city streets, reaching their destinations and stealing valuables, with the perfect getaway.

Batman and Robin manage to find the Baron's secret hideout, in a brass factory, and after a brief struggle and a brisk chase, Robin plunges into the river, and Batman is shot and captured by the crooks. Robin recovers in time to rescue Batman, and together they capture the Baron and his gang, with help from Alfred. In the end all the criminals are delivered to Commissioner Gordon at the GCPD Headquarters.
