Synopsis for Batman: "The Secret of Bruce Wayne"

Batman is part of a new radio show called "The True Tales of Batman", where he tells the announcer some of his greatest stories and the actors at the radio station would recreate the stories. The executive editor of a newspaper asks his best reporter, Scoop Scanlon, to uncover Batman's real identity and so Scoop convinces Batman that he is making a series of articles about Batman in order to stop people from committing crimes. Batman agrees to be part of it and allows Scoop to go on some of their missions with Robin.

However, when word about Scoop's collaboration with Batman got around the underworld, some criminals forced the executive editor and Scoop to prepare a real trap for Batman. Scoop goes to the GCPD Headquarters and asks to activate the Bat-Signal that would summon Batman. Once the hero arrives, Scoop leads him to an abandoned building while driving the Batmobile. When Batman enters the building, he is ambushed by several criminals and Scoop thinks it's all part of the setup to reveal Batman's identity, but he learns that the thugs want to kill them both. Batman and Scoop are placed on some deadly trap until they're saved by Robin, who was hiding in the truck of the Batmobile.

After escaping the trap, Batman and Robin start investigating the criminals who attacked them, while Scoop was determined to find out the truth about Batman. They are both successful. Batman and Robin learn that the criminals are using the same schemes from another radio show to perform the hits and Scoop deduces that Bruce Wayne is Batman. During the next Batman radio show, the dark knight himself decides to be the host of the show to expose the criminals' scheme, while Scoop also took the chance to tell everyone that Batman is really Bruce Wayne.

When the show is over, Batman finally exposed the criminals and the mastermind behind it all: Graves, the radio host. Before he could be taken to prison, one of the thugs shoots at Batman, but one of the actors of the show jumps in front of the bullet and allows Batman to capture the criminals. With his dying breath, the actor wants to make something for Batman and the dark knight gives the actor the Batsuit to wear in order to fool Scoop. When the reporter sees that Bruce Wayne and Batman are two different people, he gives up his manhunt.

Later the actor, who helped Bruce during a dire situation, dies and Bruce regrets the loss of a great man.
