At about the same time, a fortune in valuables disappears as if by magic from a gem exposition at which Bruce Wayne is among the patrons. Assuming his Batman identity, Bruce investigates, and finds himself battling an invisible man! The Dark Knight's further investigation uncovers the fact that an independent optics researcher, Dr. Abner Carrows, had developed what he called a "cloak of invisibility" -- a plastic of his own invention which, when electrified by Carrows's patented process, refracts light so as to make the material and anything covered by it invisible. But Carrows has recently died and, according to the scientist's assistant, a quantity of the special plastic is missing from his lab. The trail leads to ex-con Lloyd Ventris, who "embezzled" the material while working as a janitor in Carrows's lab.

With the purloined plastic, he has constructed a special suit as well as a customized "plating" for his car -- turning himself into an invisible man with an invisible vehicle. Upon his release from prison, Ventris discovered that his ex-wife, Helen, has gone to court to cut off all visitation rights to daughter Kimberly ... and he has been secretly visiting her in his invisible state, pretending to be Mojo! As Mojo, he learned that Helen plans to move away from Gotham, taking Kimberly where he'll never see her again. Now, enriched by his "invisible man" thefts, Ventris contrives to kidnap Kimberly and, with his ill-gotten gains, provide for her in a manner her mother can't. But life with a fugitive felon is no match for Helen's nurturing care ... and it's up to the Batman to stop the abduction. But to do so, he must square off with a foe he can't even see, and survive a breathtaking climax that has Batman hanging on for dear life -- dragged almost to his doom by a wildly-careening invisible car!

This is particularly dangerous, as Kyodai, having fought both Batman and Bruce, knows that they are the same man because their fighting styles are identical.

Batman rescues Yoru's daughter, but Kyodai manages to get the scroll. He then kidnaps Alfred, and challenges Batman to a duel, the stakes of which are Alfred's life. Batman agrees to meet Kyodai on the slopes of a volcano, and the two fight while the mountain begins to erupt. Kyodai tries the Death Touch on Batman, but to his shock finds that it doesn't work -- Batman has figured out a way to render it ineffectual. A volcanic fissure separates them, and rising lava traps Kyodai. Batman attempts to save him, but the Ninja finds a remnant of honor by refusing to be saved.

Each one has an 'Almost Got 'Im' story when it comes to trying to do in Batman: Poison Ivy's attempt with poisoned pumpkins, Two-Face's giant penny, Penguin's killer birds, even the big rock Croc tossed at him. However, the Joker's Tonight Show-style electrocution puts the others to shame.

After taking care of the surprised crooks, Batman races off to confront the Joker's girl, Harley Quinn, who has orders to kill Catwoman if the Joker doesn't return.

On the anniversary of the death of Bruce's parents, Batman accompanies Dr. Leslie Thompkins to Crime Alley to deposit roses on the spot where they were gunned down. Batman expresses doubts about whether or not he should continue his one-man war against crime; is it doing any good? Is he fooling himself? While in the alley, he rescues a teen-aged street kid nicknamed Wizard from two thugs. Wizard is less than grateful, and Batman delivers him to a halfway house. Meanwhile, Commissioner Gordon, Bullock and Montoya are on stakeout to arrest the Jazzman, a gangster with a penchant for music and mayhem. Batman had promised to be there, and so Gordon delays the arrest until he can't wait any longer. Batman arrives to find a gun battle going on. He helps defeat the gangsters and arrest the Jazzman, but at a high cost -- Gordon is severely wounded.

Main Villain: Vertigo

The Batman investigates the notorious global crime cartel, The Society of Shadows, which has begun to operate in Gotham City. Led by the man known only as Vertigo, they plan to hijack a certain freight train due to arrive the following night. Aboard the train is the sonic drill, a digging tool that uses ultrasound waves ... and a device that could become a fearsome, deadly weapon in the wrong hands. While trying to stop the hijacking, the Dark Knight falls victim to the amazing vertigo device. This is Vertigo's unique weapon whose radiation scrambles the victim's senses to create the illusion that the world has gone topsy-turvy. Victims of the Vertigo Effect might think they're floating upside-down, for example, or standing on a wall. Despite this, however, Batman gets the upper hand ... until a mysterious, leather-clad Lady In Black, armed with an unusual crossbow-gun, appears on the scene. She fires an arrow that separates Batman and Vertigo as they grapple, allowing Vertigo to escape.

Following Vertigo's trail, Batman encounters the Lady In Black again ... and learns that she is Talia, daughter of the real head of the Society of Shadows. And she is actually Vertigo's enemy -- sent by her father to prevent the capture of the sonic drill. After being trapped by Vertigo and imprisoned together, the Batman and Talia join forces to escape and take on Vertigo anew, this time defeating him. In the course of this, they develop a grudging mutual respect that borders on physical attraction. But Batman remains off-balance as to where Talia's true loyalties lie when she turns her weapon on him to prevent him from leaving with the sonic drill. It turns out that Vertigo was once her father's second-in-command, but sought to control the Society himself. Now Talia will take command of her mysterious father's organization ... as well as take the sonic drill! But Batman has sabotaged the drill, rendering it useless to Talia's father who is revealed as the ancient, madman Ra's Al Ghul. This leaves the sinister immortal with quite a score to settle with the Dark Knight...

51- The Man Who Killed Batman (February 1, 1993)
 
Main Villain: The Joker

Third-rate mob stumble-bum, Sidney Debris, crawls to crime kingpin Rupert Thorne begging for help. It seems Sidney has done the impossible and become the man who killed Batman. Sidney explains (in a flashback that takes up most of the episode) that while he was acting as look-out for drug-runners, Batman surprised him on a warehouse roof. The two struggled, and Sid's bumbling caused Batman to pitch off the roof and into a shed of explosive gas. After the ensuing fire, the only thing found was Batman's cape and cowl. At first lauded as a hero by the underworld, Sidney soon became the man to beat. Suddenly everybody wanted a piece of the man who killed Batman, particularly the Joker, who had his henchwench Harley bring Sidney to him for corroboration of the tale. Once the Joker believed Batman was gone, his grief was considerable, and he held a wake for the Dark Knight at the chemical plant where they first "met.'

The capper of the ceremony was to be Sidney's own execution at the Joker's hands (for killing Batman before the Joker could, of course), but a lucky fluke allowed Sid to escape. As the flashback ends, Sid begs Thorne to get him safely out of town. But it turns out Thorne already heard the rumors, and suspects Sidney of playing dumb as a way of advancing upwards in his mob. Just then Batman shows up alive and well to save Sidney from Thorne's wrath. It seems Batman was trying to find out who was calling the shots behind the drug-runners, and he knew if he stayed out of sight and followed Sidney, he'd eventually find the kingpin. Sidney is sent to jail for his original part in Thorne's operation, but he earns new respect in prison as "The Man Who Nearly Off'ed The Bat."

When Commissioner Gordon is framed for taking bribes from gangland boss Rupert Thorne, his daughter Barbara pleads with Batman to show up at a rally being put on in the commissioner's behalf by Assistant Commissioner Gil Mason. Batman, hot on the trail of the mysterious figure behind the frame-up, declines, preferring to send Robin in his place. Barbara determined that one way or another the Dark Knight will make an appearance, so she rents a Batman costume and, using her gymnastic abilities, impersonates Batman. Her plan backfires, however, when an unexpected drive-by shooting by gangsters reveals her as a girl. The next day the papers are trumpeting the question, "Who is Batgirl?"

Batman, in disguise as Matches Malone, infiltrates the headquarters of the one responsible for the frame-up and finds it's Two Face. Before he can escape, he's knocked unconscious and captured.

Main Villain: The Penguin

Pandemonium strikes the unveiling of the Raven X-1 1 1 -- an experimental police helicopter with state-of-the-art weaponry, developed by WayneTech -- as it is demonstrated for the police. The Penguin has pulled off a plot to hijack the armored chopper and, in the course of The Penguin's raid, Bruce Wayne is temporarily blinded. Now Dr. Leslie Thompkins gives Bruce strict instructions to keep his eyes bandaged for forty-eight hours or risk losing his sight permanently. But when The Penguin starts using the Raven's weaponry to blow up famous Gotham landmarks as part of his plan to extort a fabulous sum from the city treasury, it's up to the Batman to stop him -- blindness or no blindness. Only by rigging up a special helmet, utilizing the Raven technology perfected by WayneTech, can the Batman function -- a helmet which translates the Raven's radar and sonar signals into images fed directly to his brain. So armed, the Batman sets a trap for The Penguin at the ransom drop-sight -- a Gotham steel mill. But when the device malfunctions, it comes down to a mano-a-mano battle between The Penguin, armed with his umbrella weapons, and a near-helpless Dark Knight who is literally 'blind as a bat'.

59- The Demon's Quest (Part I) (May 3, 1993)

Main Villain: Ra's Al Ghul

When Robin is mysteriously abducted from his college campus, the Batman begins a fruitless search ... until he is astounded by the sudden appearance in the Batcave of Ra's Al Ghul -- the mysterious cult leader whose name means "The Demon's Head.' Ra's quickly reveals himself to be the leader of The Society of Shadows (whom the Batman encountered in 'Off-Balance") ... as well as the father of Talia, the femme fatale whom the Dark Knight also met in that episode. It seems that Talia has been abducted under circumstances similar to Robin's -suggesting that the same persons are responsible. So begins an uneasy truce -the Batman and 'The Demon" teaming up to find the kidnap victims. After Batman survives a number of traps en route -- in one of which Ra's Al Ghul is apparently killed -- it comes down to the Batman on the trail alone. His quest ends in a mountain fortress where he finds Robin held captive -- alone.

It's only after freeing Robin that the Batman reveals what he'd suspected from the first: that the abductions, and the search, were all engineered by Ra's as an arcane test of Batman's mettle. In this manner, Ra's hoped to gauge Batman's worthiness to succeed him as leader of The Society of Shadows. It seems that Talia -- who now appears here, clearly nobody's prisoner -- is in love with Batman. And Ra's -- who is thousands of years old thanks to the rejuvenating properties of his Lazarus Pit -believes his body will not withstand another near-death and resurrection. Now he needs an heir, and Batman has been elected. As Batman curtly refuses the offer, Ra's collapses and is rushed into the Pit, from which he unexpectedly emerges. And, as the episode concludes, we learn that a by-product of the rejuvenating process is that the subject emerges temporarily insane and with the physical strength of ten men! Now, it is this formidable opponent -- this enraged juggernaut -- who seeks revenge on Batman for spurning him, even if he must destroy his own daughter to get it.

60- His Silicon Soul (November 20, 1993)
 
Main Villain: HARDAC

Thieves break into a warehouse containing remnants of Cybertron's robotic machines and electronics. They are interrupted in their robbery by Batman, who bursts out of a crate and mops up the floor with two of the three thugs. The third fires a gun point-blank at Batman, only to discover, along with the astonished Dark Knight, that Batman is a robot when his electronic insides are exposed. The robot Batman, believing him self to be the real McCoy and sorely confused, makes his way back to Wayne Manor, where Alfred accuses him of being one of Karl Rossum's duplicants. Alfred flees to the Batcave and tries to incapacitate the robot, but the robot knocks Alfred out instead. The robot learns from the Batcomputer the present whereabouts of Karl Rossum -- on a farm outside Gotham City. Meanwhile, the real Batman learns that an impersonator is capturing criminals. He deduces that Rossum is somehow involved and confronts Rossum in his greenhouse. Rossum denies implication -- "I don't try to build life anymore, I just grow it' -- and Batman leaves. The robot Batman then shows up. Still believing he's really Batman, he tells Rossum that somehow his mind has been implanted in a robotic body. Rossum, initially astonished, convinces the robot that he is not human. The real Batman then shows up and a battle between the two doppelgangers takes place, destroying the greenhouse. The robot Batman goes to the GCPD impound yard and discovers a data chip containing the core memory files of HARDAC, the Artificial Intelligence computer Rossum created. When the chip is inserted in the robot's head, HARDAC is reactivated. He explains that the robot Batman was a final duplicant created just before Cybertron was destroyed (as chronicled in 'Heart of Steel' Part I and Part II) but never activated.

He assumes control of the robot in order to continue his plan to replace humanity with robot duplicants. The robot returns to the Batcave and uploads the HARDAC files to the Batcomputer, telling Alfred that in five minutes HARDAC will have access to a global network of computers via modem. The real Batman shows up and a battle royale in the Batcave commences, ending with the real Batman falling into a chasm. The robot Batman believes he's taken a life and, filled with remorse, destroys the Batcomputer, incinerating himself in the process. Alfred rescues Batman from the pit and they sadly regard the charred remains of the robot, who, like Batman, was willing to die to protect humanity.

Robin discovers that Gil Mason is in league with the underworld and goes to investigate him. He encounters Batgirl along the way, who is also trying to get to the bottom of things to clear her father's name. Each learns, without knowing that the other knows it, that Mason is to meet the mysterious gang leader in an abandoned subway in South Gotham. There's no love lost between Batgirl and Robin and so they go separate ways, each arriving at the subway station independently. Mason joins Two Face, who has decided to execute Matches Malone. Batgirl tries to stop this, but bungles it, and she, along with Robin and Matches, are trapped in the subway. Two-Face floods the subway tunnel.

Two Face has Gordon busted out of jail as part of his two-part plan to discredit the Commissioner and establish Gil Mason as head of police, while Two Face takes over the gangs. He takes Gordon to Bayshore Wharf, planning to execute him there. In the subway, Matches changes to Batman, and manages to help Batgirl escape via his grappling gun through a hole in the ceiling. Before she can rescue him and Robin, however, the two are swept away by the flood. Batgirl realizes it's up to her to save her father, and heads for Bayshore Wharf. Batman and Robin manage to escape by crashing a subway car through an embankment wall. They arrive at Bayshore Wharf and, along with Batgirl, tackle the crooks. Two-Face is captured and Gordon freed, but Mason escapes in a speedboat. Batgirl leaps into the boat and struggles with him, managing to pull him into the water just as the boat strikes the Statue of Freedom and explodes. Gordon is cleared of all charges, and Gil Mason, horribly disfigured and crippled, is in a coma and will be a vegetable for the rest of his life. Bruce and Dick agree that Batgirl, whoever she is, acquitted herself nobly. Barbara, hearing this, smiles as the two speculate on whether they'll ever see Batgirl again.

Main Villain: Ra's Al Ghul

After freeing Talia from her father's clutches, Batman engages Ra's Al Ghul in bat-tie, holding him at bay long enough for the maddening effects of the Lazarus Pit to wear off. Whereupon Ra's activates a self-destruct mechanism in his mountain lair and beats a hasty retreat with Talia, leaving Batman and Robin to be finished off by a cave-in. The pair escapes in time and narrowly avoid being buried alive in an avalanche, giving Ra's more than enough time to vanish. Only two clues to his whereabouts remain: while a prisoner, Robin hear Ra's speak of repairing to his 'desert stronghold,' as well as hearing the word "Orpheus" repeated over and over. It turns out that Orpheus is the name of a satellite in synchronous orbit over a specific point in the Sahara Desert, a location that turns out to hide Ra's Al Ghul's desert fortress.

There, the Batman is overcome by attackers and thrown in to a dungeon, after learning of the ecologically-conscious Demon's ultimate, made plan. It turns out that the Lazarus Pit we saw was merely one of many -- each of which is a kind of "spring' fed by the same magma-like layer of rolling chemicals deep beneath Earth's crust. Now, here in the desert, Ra's mans the computerized controls that activate a device aboard the Orpheus satellite. The satellite is actually a weapon which will explosively destroy all the Lazarus Pits simultaneously, throughout the world. The resulting flood of Lazarus Pit chemicals will wash over Earth like a tidal wave -- almost instantly returning Earth to the lush, green, eco-balanced sphere it was in its infancy ... but in the process destroying all life that now exists on the planet. The fate of everything and everyone now living hangs in the balance as Batman races to free himself from imprisonment ... and dispatch Ra's Al Ghul in a duel to the death, in time to prevent the Orpheus Weapon from doing its cataclysmic work!

Batman tries to get the Ventriloquist to agree to turn state's evidence against Scarface, but the Ventriloquist is terrified of his alter ego. It's a classic case of split personality.

Scarface taunts him, telling him that the Ventriloquist confessed he had spoken with Batman.
