Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Greater Love Hath No Man...!"

Batman uses the Power Charger in the Fortress of Solitude to gain superpowers and rescue Superman from the Weapon Master, who has captured the Man of Steel and is using a special machine to drain his powers. Batman knows the machine will kill him, but he needs the powers to save his friend.

Batman arrives at the Weapon Master's hideout and releases Superman in time. The two superheroes battle the villain, but the Weapon Master uses his whole array of weapons to stop them. Batman and Superman have to fight a series of obstacles and destroy all the weapons used against them. The distraction created by the Weapon Master is enough to allow him a clear escape and the heroes are unable to follow him because the effects of the Power Charger have started to affect Batman. Knowing that his friend could die, Superman takes Batman to the Weapon Master's special machine to drain the powers from Batman before he dies and the plan is successful. Batman no longer has powers, but will live and although the Weapon Master escaped, the heroes will be ready to confront him when he returns.
