Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "A Hole for Killing!"

Metallo is broken free of his cell on Superman Island by a miniature black hole, which he uses to power his artificial heart and to set a trap for Superman and Batman.

After learning the basics about Black Holes, the two heroes go to the Batcave, where they build a gravity-wave detector, which would help them locate Metallo and his crooks. While the villain has been going around Gotham on a criminal spree, Batman locates the source of Metallo's power and he tracks the criminal to his headquarters. However, Batman falls for Metallo's trap and is used as bait to lure Superman into Metallo's hideout.

Superman breaks into the place to save Batman, but Metallo uses his new black hole heart to incapacitate Superman, creating an extremely powerful gravitational field around the Man of Steel. Batman takes the chance to smash Metallo's control board, which makes Metallo's black hole heart unstable and causes it to absorb everything nearby, starting with his own body. After Metallo is sucked into his own black hole, Batman and Superman round up the rest of Metallo's gang.
