Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "The Battle of the Super-Heroes"

While out on their routine patrol of Gotham City, Batman thinks about how he blacked out prior to going on patrol, but decides not to mention anything as not to worry Robin. When they find a bunch of crooks attempting to get away from the scene of a bank robbery, Batman soon realizes that he has been endowed with super-powers similar to that of his friend Superman, and he easily busts the criminals.

Superman, meanwhile is on his way back to Metropolis from a mission outside his home city. As he passes through Gotham City, he recalls how he had a momentary blackout before he spots a building fire. He arrives at the same time as Batman and Robin do and he tells them to stand back while he deals with the fire. Batman, however, becomes jealous of Superman and tries to use his newly acquired super powers to put out the flames.

Much to Robin's shock and dismay, Batman and Superman form a rivalry between each other. One that becomes so big, it makes national headlines. As Superman and Batman are called in to deal with various disasters, the two super-powered men attempt to outdo each other.

Batman vs Superman
After stopping a hurricane, the heated competition between the two men leads to an all-out brawl to see which of them is the strongest. When Robin spots some looters taking advantage of the hurricane and Superman and Batman's fight, Robin stops them easily. He then tries to get the two mighty titans to see that they are overlooking their responsibilities.

Before Robin can get them to think any further he is transported to the distant planet of Xlym. There he is brought before two aliens who decided to wager to see who could win in an equal fight: Superman or Batman. The aliens abducted the two heroes, explaining Batman's and Superman's blackouts, and used their world's advanced science to endow Batman with powers similar to Superman and to instill a hatred in each man towards the other. They conclude their explanation by showing Robin that the only way to reverse their experiment is to throw a specific switch, and tell Robin that they have no intention of returning the Boy Wonder back to Earth where he can continue to interfere with their bet until it has been decided. However, they return Robin to Earth when they hear their superior, who has scolded them for interfering in other species lives before, coming their way.

When Robin returns to Earth, he soon sees Batman and Superman stop fighting and suddenly make peace, making him realize that the alien superior must have overheard the two aliens and reversed the effects of their machinations.

Synopsis for Green Arrow: "Green Arrow vs. Red Dart"

As Green Arrow and Speedy try to stop a series of robberies, they seem to always be behind the newest costumed hero, Red Dart. However, Red Dart is really criminal John "Midas" Mallory, who is in league with the gold thieves. The next night, when Green Arrow, Speedy and Red Dart all show up at the scene of the crime. Green Arrow captures the crooks and also ropes up Red Dart, having deduced his identity. To prove that Mallory was involved in the robberies, he removes one of Mallory's gloves to reveal gold stains which is a tell-tale sign of testing gold with Aqua-Regia.
