Synopsis for "Evil in Paradise"
After a new island with a primitive civilization is discovered near the Antarctica, a couple of American antrhopologists are determined to prove the good or evil nature of humans who had not been exposed to the "higher" form of civilization. Superman, Jr. and Batman Jr. become aware of this project and following their own beliefs, they set out to help the scientist who each of them believe is right.
Superman Jr. helps the scientist who believes that human nature is good, while Batman Jr. goes to help the man who believes that humans are evil. After the initial developments in each study, everything seems to point to the fact that the tribesmen on the island are good and the man who wants to prove the opposite, starts creating odd conditions to put the tribesmen under stress. The experiment is taken fay beyond the limits of science when the man decides to kidnap the leader of the tribesmen and expose him to inhuman conditions. When none of his efforts prove his theory, the man attacks the tribesmen, but in the struggle he ends up dead. Batman Jr. believes that the theory about these men being evil has just being proved, until an earthquake hits the island and he is saved from a certain death by the same man he helped torture. The theory about the tribesmen being evil is proved wrong and Batman Jr. feels guilty for having helped such a crooked man to cause stress on innocent people.
