Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Kidnapped!"

There has been a recent wave of kidnappings of wealthy men in Gotham City and during a visit of Superman, one of these crimes takes place. Batman and Superman go to the place, but the Man of Steel is distracted saving people from a sudden earthquake and the criminal called Captain Cutlass escapes from Batman.

The two heroes then decide to prepare a trap for the crooks and they go as Bruce Wayne and his "bodyguard" to a fancy cruise, hoping to attract the attention of the kidnappers. Captain Cutlass appears at the scene and kidnaps Bruce Wayne, while his "bodyguard" is knocked unconscious. The distraction gives Clark enough time to switch to his Superman gear and follows Captain Cutlass, who has taken Bruce inside a submarine.

Cutlass joins his fellow criminals inside the submarine and Colonel Sulphur notices that they are being followed by Superman. Major Disaster creates a tsunami that would destroy a city and Superman is forced to stop his chase to save the city. In the time it takes him to stop the tidal wave, the submarine reaches the underground military base, concealed under a lead covered rock. For this reason Superman is unable to locate the submarine. The crooks then proceed to take Bruce Wayne to their leader and Bruce recognizes the man as General Scarr, who in turn deduces Bruce's plan and removes his clothes to reveal Batman's costume underneath.

He also learns that one of the cultists is Laura Goodman, daughter of one of his fellow workers at the Daily Star. After consulting with Paul Goodman, her father, Oliver Queen goes to the offices of Out of Harmony, a group dedicated to fighting the cult, and is told that they will have Laura out of Harmony’s hands...and deprogrammed...within two days. Suspicious, Oliver investigates as Green Arrow, and finds out that Out of Harmony is a front for Harmony, and controlled by Harmony’s leader, Rev. Marcus Hale.

Synopsis for Hawkman: "Pirates of the Spaceways"

Hawkman equips a Thanagarian ship with a hyperdrive engine and heads into hyperspace, and sets his tracking equipment to search for signs of Shayera. He comes across a reverse whirlpool which is spitting out rocks and rubble. While examining the phenomenon he picks up a distress signal from the center of the whirlpool. He heads in to investigate, and finds an old battered ship, unable to escape. He leaves his ship in a safe orbit, and travels to the other ship with the aid of a space suit. Upon landing he is attacked by an unruly pirate crew and a one-eyed Captain Czemm. Hawkman defeats the snake-like Veneer, but is attacked by the slimy Drekk. Karniss Gor tears Drekk from his prey to stop him destroying the space-suit with his mucoid acid, and Hawkman uses the diversion to overcome them both. He then turns his attack on the Captain, but is distracted by an apparition of Shayera. In the confusion, Karniss Gor knocks Katar unconscious, and Czemm gloats that they will be able to use Hawkman's ship to return to plundering!
