Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "The Curse of Krypton"
A unicorn woman goes berserk in the streets of Gotham City. GCPD officers converge on the scene and are prepared to open fire, but Batman arrives and briefly ensnares her with his batrope. The were-unicorn escapes and runs down an alley. Batman gives chase and finds that she has transformed back into a normal woman - Sandy Terry.
Sandy is taken to S.T.A.R. Labs where the scientists analyze her condition. Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen are present for a photo-op. Sandy undergoes the transformation once again and storms out of the building. Superman catches her and flies her to the far side of the Earth, where the light of the full moon will no longer affect her. After Sandy returns to normal, Superman flies her back to the United States.
Batman meanwhile appears to be going through difficult times. He begins acting moody and irrational. When he goes out on patrol he becomes more violent and suspects everyone of being a criminal. When the full moon comes out again, Batman transforms into a literal "bat man". He attacks Superman who tries his best not to harm his friend.
Superman determines that Batman has contracted the same virus that has affected Sandy and Lar-On. Unlike normal lycanthropy however, this version of the virus turns its victims into whatever animal they most closely identify with. Superman grabs Batman and brings him to S.T.A.R. Labs. The scientists perform a double blood transfusion between Batman and Sandy Terry, hoping that the different blood types will cancel out the effects of the disease. The process works and Batman and Sandy Terry return to normal.
