Synopsis for "Menace of the Planet Master"

Batman and Robin fight a criminal called the Planet-Master, whose crime-costumes are modeled around the motif of the nine planets of the solar system. Using these special designed costumes for crimes, the Planet Master manages to outmatch the Dynamic Duo on every occasion until they find a clue that points towards a scientist called Professor Norbet. Once in Norbet's place, the Dynamic Duo learn that the man is a mild mannered professional and that he believes the Planet-Master must have snuck in and stolen the inventions needed for the crimes. After the Dynamic Duo leave, Norbet examines another secret closet, known only to his assistant Edward Burke and finds it filled with all of the Planet Master's costumes and loot. The heroes come to the conclusion that Norbet's assistant, Burke, might be the criminal.

However, when they confront Burke, the Planet Master strikes again and they have to leave Burke, who has now learned of the costumes in the lab closet. Burke sneaks into the laboratory and witnesses how Norbet enters the place as the Planet Master and his personality changes as he takes off the costume. Norbet realizes quickly what must have happened - while investigating a mysterious space rock toxic fumes emanated from inside and caused him to develop a second personality as the Planet Master. When Batman and Robin arrive, they realize the truth and Burke takes the chance to attack the heroes with one of the Planet-Master's costumes. Batman and Robin manage to knock Burke out with Norbet's help. After the whole confusion has been cleared, Norbet is no longer the Planet Master and Burke is dealt with.

Synopsis for "The Alien Bodyguard"

Diane Meade, while trying to call in an alarm on gang boss Rocky Dawson, slips, falls, hits her head, and gets amnesia. The doctor who treats Diane has her sent back to her patrol, in hopes that her memory will be jogged by familiar sights. Jones becomes J'onn J'onzz, secretly looking after Diane and saving her from attempts on her life. Eventually, J'onzz captures all of Rocky Dawson's gang and Dawson himself, while Diane endures what seems to her a terminally boring day. When she returns to headquarters, her memory returns. John Jones brings Dawson and his men in at that moment, and she barks at him for interfering.

Synopsis for "The Mystery of the Demon Island"

After saving a fisherman and returning him to his home island, Aquaman and Aqualad soon learn that the people there live in fear of a "sea demon" because they stopped paying tribute to it by giving it their valuables. Suspicious, the hero and his ward attack the sea demon when it appears again, and with the help of their undersea friends easily defeat him. Bringing the creature to the surface, Aquaman reveals that it's really a crook wearing a costume to cash in on the island's superstitious people. Aquaman informs them that he was tipped off that the creature was a fake when its trident touched its sea horse (really a sea-cycle in disguise) and created sparks because it was made of metal.
