Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Buried Alive"

Batman wakes up to find himself buried alive. Back in Gotham City, Superman is not happy that Batman missed a meeting and Commissioner Gordon explains that, for the first time, he couldn't contact Batman. Robin arrives and confirms that he has checked everywhere, to no avail.

Gordon gets a phone call from the Metropolis Police Department and he is told that someone on top of Metropolis Bridge is claiming to have kidnapped Batman, demanded a ransom of ten million dollars from the two cities, and Batman would die in less than twelve hours if they don't pay. Superman grabs Robin and flies him to the bridge. The kidnapper, Wiley, tells Superman that if he doesn't back off, he would blow himself up. Wiley does not see Robin climbing up the side of the bridge. He explains that superheroes forget about the small-timers, and that he captured Batman by eavesdropping on police radio and blowing out the wheel on the Batmobile. In the middle of his rant, Robin tries to knock the detonator out of Wiley's hand, but only succeeds in pulling him off the bridge. Wiley blows himself up, catching Robin in the blast, and Superman immediately flies him to hospital.

When Robin comes out of surgery, Morgan Edge arrives and accuses Gordon of being part of a fiasco. Gordon flares up, Superman tells them both to back down and Gordon to stay with Robin. Jimmy Olsen play Superman a recording of Wiley's ranting after he tells how he'd already scanned the city with his x-ray vision. Superman picks up on a comment about how Batman wouldn't be lonely where he is buried and heads off to the cemetery. He finds a recently-buried lead-lined coffin and dug it up, only to find Batman has already escaped.

When Robin wakes up, Batman explains how he had removed the end plate of the coffin, dug his way out and waited for his captor, except Superman arrived instead. Robin says that Batman really was the world's greatest escape artist, to a loud amen from Superman.

Synopsis for Green Arrow: "Escape Me...Never!"

While on assignment as Oliver Queen in the Caribbean nation of San Felipe, Green Arrow rescues the beautiful Mercedes de Diego from an attempted kidnapping. Queen is there to try and discover the key players in the drug trade that emanates from San Felipe to Star City, but Mercedes induces him to help her free through bribery a man she first claims to be her brother, then, later, her cousin, from a tough prison where he is held for political reasons. Green Arrow appears to agree and helps her with the operation. But he has deduced that she is really involved in the drug trade herself, and her “brother / cousin” turns out to be a man who had betrayed her and whom she wishes to kill. Green Arrow turns her and her quarry over to drug agents at the U.S. Embassy.
