Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "When Gotham City Challenged Metropolis"

In Gotham City, a pair of helicopter bandits figure they'll get away with their crime and avoid interference from Batman and Robin, and are shocked when they are instead captured by Superman. While in Metropolis, a bunch of crooks attempting to rob a ballet are captured by the Dynamic Duo.

As it turns out the three heroes are competing in a competition to determine which city gets to be the host for an electronics convention. With the mayors of each respective city unable to make an agreement they had asked Superman and Batman and Robin to switch cities and see whom could perform more super-feats within a 24 hour period. The winner would have the convention in their native city. As they are preparing to switch places, Robin and Lois Lane both note that Batman is almost obsessive over winning the competition and beating Superman. While Robin wonders why this could be, Lois presumes that Batman is jealous of Superman and uses that as an angle for her coverage of the event for the Daily Planet.

Before getting started in Gotham City, Superman notices that the Batcave has a crack in it that will pose a problem in the future. Deciding to help out his friend, Superman would repair the damage so that disaster can be avoided. As the day progresses, the group of heroes put on various super feats leading to an deadlocked tie. Batman and Robin meet up with Professor Vohr and Robin learns why Batman is determined to win the competition: Vohr's new invention would create Kryptonite rays that would prove harmful to Superman if activated. Batman and Robin manage to win the competition by helping a hospital raise money for it's charity fund. Later, Lois Lane meets with Superman and asks him to think about any good deeds he's done that he might have forgot. Realizing he didn't report repairing the Batcave, Superman flies off to Gotham City to tell Batman that they are still in a tie.

He arrives just as Professor Vohr activates his machine causing Superman to collapse in pain. However as Batman and Robin come to his aid, the pain suddenly stops. When they go inside to investigate, they find that Vohr's invention had exploded and that scientific principals behind his invention are unsound and resolves not to build another generator. With a tie on their hands, Superman, Batman and Robin make the decision with holding the convention partially in Gotham City, and partially in Metropolis, with Superman ferrying it between the two cities. After the decision is made, Superman tells Lois the full story and comments on how much of a true friend Batman is.
