Synopsis for Superman and Batman: "The Three Super-Sleepers"
In Metropolis, Clark Kent is informed by Perry White that criminal Rick Harben has been spotted near Stony Mountain. While in Gotham City, Commissioner Gordon imparts the same news to Batman and Robin. The three heroes meet up and head up the mountain to capture Harbin. When they enter a cave, Batman and Robin are knocked out by gas, and Superman is felled by Kryptonite. With the three heroes down, Harbin then locks them in glass cases and seals them in the cave, with the gas and Kryptonite insuring that they will stay in stasis forever. The three heroes go into a state of suspended animation and are found a millienium later in the year 2957 by a team of miners seeking lead ore.
The three heroes are taken back to Metropolis where they are revived. With their identities established, the scientists offer to send the heroes back to their own time using a time ray if they recover it as it was stolen by Rothul, the descendant of Superman's old foe Luthor. After multiple attempts, the Man of Steel and the Caped Crusaders fail in capturing Ruhtol and his men. Before they can begin searching the known universe for their foe, it is announced that the united worlds of this era would like to put on a parade in the heroes honors. When they do so, Rothul and his men send robots to distract Superman, Batman and Robin while they steal a hydrogen generator from another lab.
Realizing that Rothul would rob any great scientific discovery, Superman and Batman disguise themselves as Kent Clark and Wayne Bruce, two scientists who discovered a device that can neutralize any destructive ray. Rothul falls for this ruse and sends his men to steal it. The three heroes easily defeat the crooks and disguising their ship as a meteor, fly to Rothul's base where they easily defeat the crooks and turn Rothul over to the authorities. Upon investigating Rothul's cache of stolen devices, they fail to find the time machine. Lora, one of the Earth scientists bursts into tears, admitting that she hid the time device so that she could convince Superman to stay in the future. However, the three heroes still are determined to return to their own time and use the time machine to travel back in time to a minute before Rick Harben could spring his trap on them. Later, when the three men recount their adventure, they wonder if it really happened or if it was all a dream. However, they learn the truth when Superman pulls out a card slipped into his cape pocket from Lora with her picture on it.
