Synopsis for Superman: "The Case of the Crime Crusade"

Clark Kent offers Lois Lane a lift to work, only to remember he left his car in the garage for repairs, and instead takes her on a street car. The transit company is earning the large revenues, but the company has not replaced or upgraded its equipment for some time, and the trolleys are worn out. The street car derails, and Clark surreptitiously prevents the crash from being much worse, by reaching out a window and gently lowering the car onto the street. The police say the accident wouldn't have occurred if the car wasn't so old. Clark writes an article exposing the problems with the street cars and calling for reform. The president of the Metropolis Railway Company, Hugh Manton, accuses the Planet of libel. Clark and Lois set out to prove Clark's charges correct. They photograph a street car under repair, but they are attacked by the workers. Clark steps out then steps in as Superman, and takes Lois, and the camera, back to the Planet. They run another article in the same vein, using the pictures as evidence.

Civic reformer Dan Bransom asks to see Clark, and offers his support. They and Lois visit the mayor, who promises to bring the matter to the city council. The council and the Railway Company's representatives argue for days with no agreement. Back at the office, Clark gets a phone call telling him of an imminent street car accident. Changing to Superman, he catches and rights the car before it can smash, and finds evidence of sabotage. He is accused of derailing the car and flies off. Later, Clark gets another phone call from the same man offering to tell all. He meets the man as Superman, but before the informant can tell what he knows, he is blown up. Later, Clark tells Lois that he's learned one of the street cars was sabotaged. They tell Bransom, who blames it on someone with a grudge against the company.

When Clark gets his car back from the garage, he and Lois take it out to check out its condition, and someone forces it off the side of a mountain road. Clark catches the car, and tells Lois it was Superman. They deduce that the attempted murderer was someone who wanted to stop them investigating the sabotage. Meanwhile, the president of Railway Company refuses to do anything about the street cars. Superman pays him a visit, and shows him that, even though his company can provide financial compensation, lives are being wrecked by his unsafe street cars. At the council, he announces that he will replace the street cars with buses as quickly as he can. But Bransom demands he does so immediately. Suspicious as to why the reformer would hinder the proceedings, Superman follows and overhears him ordering a mass sabotage. He stops the defective street cars from leaving the depot, and captures the saboteur. He takes him to a radio interviewer and forces him to confess, naming Bransom as his employer. Bransom flees, meeting Lois. He takes her hostage in her own car and drives off. Superman follows, stops Bransom from murdering Lois and takes her and Bransom to the police.

Synopsis for Batman: "The Ghost Gang Goes West"

Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson are on their way to visit a ranch on the west when the train they are travelling on is suddenly attacked by bandits. The criminals steal the valuables from the people and they ride their horses away from the train. After asking about the bandits, the locals inform Bruce that they are the Ghost Gang, because they can commit crimes in places very far apart at the same time.

When the Ghost Gang strike at the town where Bruce and Dick are staying, they change into Batman and Robin and try to stop the bandits. However, the villagers mistake them for criminals and they start chasing the duo, while the real criminals escape. After a long chase, Batman knocks Robin unconscious and he allows the villagers to capture him. Batman is about to be hanged when he manages to make the people stop and think for a while, forcing them to realize that he is in fact a good person. Batman is freed and he is invited to stay at the ranch of Lafe Brunt.

Batman goes to meet Robin and together they go to Brunt's ranch, where they spend the night. While they are sleeping, someone places a snake on their bedroom and Robin manages to charm the animal using an old harmonica until Batman takes the reptile out of the room. More attempts to kill Batman and Robin take place in the next few days, but all of them aren't succesful.

After a quick encounter with some members of the Ghost Gang, Batman gets the help of the Sheriff and later, Batman discovers that Brunt is the leader of the Ghost Gang and that he is responsible for the several murder attempts. Batman learns that the gangs has been painting their horses white to make them look ghostly and also that they've been using a big gyro-plane to get from one place to another in no time. Batman fights Brunt and he captures the whole gang.
