Synopsis for "The Riddler's Ruse"

A freshly-escaped Riddler embarks on a new crime-spree, targeting the works of sculptor and riddle enthusiast Oskar Villkoop. While Batman and Robin are unable to stop him from stealing two of Villkoop's statues, they gain an uneasy ally in the recently-paroled Catwoman, whose nightclub the Riddler had used as a red herring for one of his riddles, and then bombed on a whim.

Using the Batcomputer's 3-D modeler, Batman is able to produce replicas of the stolen statues. Catwoman then identifies these statues as pieces of an oblique map leading to Villkoop's last piece - a statue he had supposedly died before finishing. Batman, Robin, and Catwoman then follow this map to Gotham Park, and recover the statue before the Riddler can.

Upon finding himself beaten to the statue, the Riddler breaks into a psychotic rage and attacks, but proves no match for the trio and is quickly apprehended. As the Dynamic Duo celebrate, however, Catwoman surreptitiously steals one of the statues for herself and escapes, cheerfully signalling her return to crime.

Batman and Robin prepare to give chase, but first amuse themselves with a secret: the statue Catwoman had stolen was nothing but a Batcomputer-built replica.
