Synopsis for "Death Flaunts Its Golden Grin"

Batman is still on the lookout of Deadman, who has taken over the body of Batman's brother Thomas Wayne, Jr. Unfortunately, Batman and Superman have been assigned to stop a large criminal organization responsible for smuggling gold into the United States of America. Batman is unable to concentrate on the case, leaving Superman to do all the work for himself.

Batman and Superman decide to separate as they have their own priorities. Superman travels to Switzerland to continue the investigation and Batman follows the trail of Deadman to Iowa, where he finds that Deadman has been using Thomas' body and has become a professional performer in a circus, much like Deadman was when he was alive. Batman tries to reach Deadman, but the sneaky spirit always finds a way to elude the Dark knight. Eventually, Batman manages to reach Deadman, but they are forced to work together to bring down one of the leaders of the gold smuggling gang. As Batman confronts the criminals, Deadman is forced to leave Thomas' body in order to help Batman, but during the confrontation, Thomas saves Batman's life by standing in the way of a bullet for Batman. Thomas dies and it is then that Superman arrives and rounds up the criminals. After Thomas dies, Superman apologizes to Batman, but they are both aware that there is nothing else to do for Thomas and the person who needs attention at the moment is Deadman, who is nowhere to be found.

Synopsis for "The Cape and Cowl Crooks!"

This story is reprinted from World's Finest #159.

When Commissioner Gordon and Perry White research the past cases of Batman and Superman, they are infected by a gas from an overturned bottle in the Fortress of Solitude. The effects of the gas turns Gordon and Perry into evildoers. They rejuvenate themselves with a special serum, Perry charges his body with super-energy and then they oppose their former friends Superman and Batman as Anti-Superman and Anti-Batman.

The crooks give the heroes a hard time until Batman deduces the truth of what happened and he tells Superman to bring the antidote to the gas as soon as possible. Going to the criminal's secret hideout, Batman and Robin prevent them from using the gas to rejuvenate until Superman arrives with the antidote and cures their friends from their evilness.
