Synopsis for "The Family Way!"
A wealthy drug dealer’s daughter is kidnapped by Cheapjack, who wants a freer hand in the city’s drug trade. The event is witnessed by Bruce Wayne, who immediately goes into action as Batman. Meanwhile, Superman learns about the events in Gotham City and decides to intervene in order to prevent a gang war. However, Superman and Batman are unable to stop Cheapjack and his gang as they threaten to kill their hostage if they try to stop them.
Without much of a choice, the heroes decide to go undercover in each of the gangs. Superman uses his "super-hypnotism" to infiltrate the gang of the drug dealer and Batman uses his disguise skills to mingle among Cheapjack's henchmen. In a twist of events, the undercover heroes find themselves involved in a mission that will surely bring the two gangs into a conflict of epic proportions.
