Synopsis for "Schismed Faces"
Two-Face took the Skinner twins hostages and had the situation under his control. Batman tried to speak his way out but when Lockhart decided to attack him with the knive-thrower's help a lion appeared out of nowhere to attack Lockhart. Batman tackled down the lion and everyone left the place. Batman was about to fight the lion when a clown appeared from out of the darkness and calmed the animal. The clown then told Batman how Lockhart did killed his uncle to get the circus for himself. That was the reason why Two-Face tracked him.
Lockhart told the strong man and the knife-thrower to get Batman. Batman took down the two of them; meanwhile Two-Face captured Lockhart and tied him and the Skinner twins to a pillar. Two-Face managed then to fool Batman and shot him in the chest. Two-Face thought Batman dead and continued his plan of making the twins kill Lockhart. Batman resisted the shoot because of his kevlar made batsuit. When Batman arrived to the circus main tent, the Skinners got a hold on Two-Face's throat with a third arm from the middle of his their chest. Batman seized the opportunity and knocked Two-Face down but he couldn't stop the lion from scarring Lockart's face. By the time he trapped the lion, the police arrived and Batman told the Skinner twins that they were good deep inside and to be proud of who they are.
