Synopsis for "Superman's Perfect Crime!"

Superman, who was using the alias Nova after he lost his powers, was captured and brought to the secret hideout of the notorious criminal known as Mr. Socrates. The villain uses some special technology and places a device inside Superman's neck, which allows him to control the hero. Using him as his new henchman, Socrates commands Superman to fight against his most dangerous enemies, Batman and Robin.

Batman vs. Superman

Batman vs. Superman
Superman lures Batman and Robin into a trap in a construction site, where he plans to eliminate the Dynamic Duo. Fortunately, Batman and Robin's fighting skills are far superior than Superman and they win the fight. Taking Superman to the Batcave, Batman and Robin learn about the device inside Superman's body and they try to remove it, but Superman regains cosciousness and escapes on the Batmobile. In the meantime, Socrates has managed to track down the signal from Superman's device and he learns the secret location of the Batcave.

Batman and Robin track down Superman on the Bat-Copter and they follow the former hero into a testing ground for short missiles. In the meantime, Socrates and his henchmen have found the Batcave and they place a deadly bomb in the Batcave's elevator in order to eliminate Batman and Robin. Moments later, Batman and Robin return and they attack the intruders with help from Superman, who has managed to avoid the effects from the mind-controlling device, thanks to Jimmy Olsen's Signal Watch. Mr. Socrates tries a desperate move and steps into the elevator, activating the bomb and killing himself with his own trap.

Finally, Socrates' henchmen are rounded up and Superman decides to drop the Nova identity and remain Superman, even without his powers and the Dynamic Duo decide to train Superman to become a great hero.

This story is reprinted from Detective Comics #215.

Across the world, the adventures of Batman and Robin have inspired several people to fight for justice and law. One of them is the Ranger from Australia, who certain day decides to write a letter to Batman and request a brief training for some of the vigilantes he has inspired.

Batman agrees and soon, several heroes from different countries arrive at Gotham City. The Ranger, Knight and Squire from England, Gaucho from Argentina, the Legionary from Italy and the Musketeer from France gather together at the GCPD Headquarters, where Batman instructs them and explains some of his most important methods for crime-fighting.

As the heroes become the main attraction in Gotham, the criminal known as Knots Cardine decides to start a criminal spree like no other before and causes some serious troubles for the Batmen of all Nations. The combined forces of the foreign heroes are no match for Cardine's organized crimes and they are unable to stop the criminal. However, Batman learns Cardine's plans and he manages to take the criminal down, earning the respect and admiration of his international peers.
