Synopsis for "Secret of the Time Creature"
Off the Mediterranean Sea, a strange creature made entirely of energy appears and begins terrorizing a small farming community prompting them to call out to Superman for help. When word gets to the Daily Planet in Metropolis, Clark Kent rushes off to change into Superman and try to stop the creature. However, no matter how hard the Man of Steel tries, he cannot stop the creature.
Meanwhile, in Gotham City, Batman and Robin arrive to the Batcave hearing a strange whistling noise. Inside they find a strange alien device that links with them telepathically tells them the origins of the creature: centuries ago, the creature was spawned when a strange fire ball exploded on an alien world. The advanced society on that planet built a device that would contain the creature and they had placed it in a volcano on Earth. Knowing that when the lava cools the energy creature would return and terrorize the planet's people, they buried the weapon and left behind a telepathic recording in what would become the Batcave to warn the people of Earth how to stop the creature.
With the location of the device imparted to them, Batman and Robin go to it's location but find that it was removed from it's container centuries ago. Knowing that the aliens buried the device during the time when King Alexander ruled over Rome, Batman and Robin would seek out their friend Professor Carter Nichols to send them back in time. Having improved his time machine, Nichols gives them a device that will allow them to return to the present whenever they wish.
Batman and Robin travel back in time to Ancient Rome and find that in this time the device was also taken and figure that it must be in the city. They enter into Rome and save a man from being trampled by a chariot. When they ask him if he's seen the object he tells him it was sold to a merchant who took it to Egypt. When they try to get a ride on a sailing ship there, they are taken prisoner and forced to row the boat to Egypt. However, the Dynamic Duo break free and stop a Pharaoh from taking the device apart and flee into the desert, but the Pharaoh's army follows after him.
While in the present, Superman manages to temporarily contain the creature when he is told by the military that Professor Nichols is seeking him out. Speeding there he learns about Batman and Robin's plight, and that they are unable to return to the present because the device they have with them is damaged. Superman flies into the past and rescue them and brings them back to the present, leaving the device in a pyramid so that they can recover it there. Back in their own time, Superman, Batman and Robin use it against the energy creature, destroying it and ending its threat forever.
