Synopsis for "Secret of Tigerman"
When a crime spree created by the Purple Legion -- a group of criminals who operate with military procession -- prove to be difficult to catch, Batman, Robin and Superman employ a new super-hero to help them: Tigerman. When attempting to stop the group from robbing the museum, Tigerman constantly gives Batman, Robin and Superman orders that cause them to bungle the capture and allow the Purple Legion to escape. However, they do manage ot capture one of the men and learn that they get radio commands from their leader General Gambly, who fashions himself as a modern day Napoleon. He tells Batman, Robin, Superman and Tigerman his methods before ordering his minion to tell them no more, offers him double pay while incarcerated and breaks radio transmission.
When reports get out about Tigerman ordering the Dynamic Duo and the Man of Steel around, Grambly decides to use this to his advantage and orders his men to steal a gem shipment to Nevins Rare Gems. Once more Batman, Robin, Superman, and Tigerman arrive on the scene to stop them and once more Tigerman bungles the capture. Realizing that Tigerman is the weakest link in their adversaries, General Gambly orders Tigerman to be capture so that they might coax the secret identities of his comrades out of him. When robbing an exhibit of historical flying machines, the Purple Legion succeeds in capturing Tigerman and making their getaway.
When brought before General Gambly, Tigerman reveals himself to be Superman in disguise. The Man of Steel explains that they orchestrated this hoax by using a Superman robot to pose as himself hoping this very turn of events would happen. However, Gramby has a trump card: a chunk of Kryptonite which he uses to weaken Superman. However, Batman and Robin -- having tracked Superman to Gambly's hideout -- arrive and capture Grambly and dispose of the Kryptonite. Searching Grambly's files they find the information on all the Purple Legion, allowing them to capture all it's members.
