Synopsis for "Prisoners of Three Worlds"
On the trail of an alien who steals silver, Batman and Batwoman are split into their normal selves, which become drained of life-energy, and energy-selves who exist on another world, while Robin and Bat-Girl are sent to a different planet.
On Earth, Batman and Batwoman try to find a way to merge back with their life-energy, but they are unable to find a solution. As they get weaker with time, they realize that they might not have much time left and both of them confess their true feeling for each other. In the meantime, their life-energies are confronted by strange creatures from another dimension, but once they help the creatures fight a monster, they stop the attack and leave Batman and Batwoman's energies alone.
Robin and Bat-Girl have arrived to the home planet of the alien, who has been sent to Earth by a rogue scientist who needs the silver to create a powerful weapon and become ruler of his planet. Robin and Batgirl manage to escape and they go towards the authorities of the planet to let them know the evil scheme. On their way there, Robin saves Bat-Girl on several occasions, and after this, they share a private moment. When the authorities from the strange planet arrive to capture the rogue scientist, he decides to teleport himself to Earth and the young heroes take the chance to return as well.
On Earth, Batman and Batwoman had managed to activate the machine that drained their life-energies and they are merged back with their missing energy just as Robin and Bat-Girl return along with the rogue alien scientist. The four heroes together capture the aliens and send them back to their planet before destroying the machine. As Robin and Bat-Girl go together for a walk in the park, Batwoman tries to get Batman to admit once again his feelings for her, but as usual, he manages to avoid a tight situation.
