Synopsis for "Catwoman--Empress of the Underworld"
When a new series of cat-related crimes start taking place in Gotham, everybody suspects that Catwoman has returned to her evil ways. However, Selina Kyle is now the owner of a pet store and she is innocent of all charges. Batman and Robin investigate the crimes and find some evidence that is later reported on the newspapers. Selina is shocked to read the news as some of the evidence seems to point towards her as responsible for the crimes. After this, a gang leader called Whale Morton approaches Selina and offers her an alliance to make her the most successful criminal in town and Selina joins him, taking up again the mantle of Catwoman again.
Catwoman leads Morton's gang on a successful crime spree, but coincidentally, there is always a Cat-Signal coming from the crime scenes during the robberies. The Dynamic Duo follow this beacon and always manage to capture some of the lesser thugs, but never the leaders. During one of these attempts, Batman and Robin are finally captured by Morton and Catwoman, who place them in a deadly trap. When Batman manages to break free from the trap, he turns off the lights and captures almost the entire gang with help from Catwoman. At that very moment, the police arrive as they have been watching the whole scene on TV and it is then revealed that Catwoman had prepared a live broadcast of the events to tip off the police in case anything went wrong. The criminals are finally arrested and Catwoman informs the Dynamic Duo that she was working as an undercover agent to capture the thugs the whole time.
