Synopsis for "Batman! Drop Dead... Twice!"
Chino rents a room and takes in Dick Grayson as his roommate. Dick soon discovers that Chino is a crook, but he hopes that he can set the boy straight. Instead Chino intends to use Dick as bait to kill Batman. Chino dresses Dick in a Robin costume, then sends Batman a note that will lead him into a trap. Meanwhile, Salvo has also learned about the Batman-Robin split. He dresses his assistant Chopper as Robin and uses the same plan as Chino to set a trap for Batman.
The Caped Crusader then receives two notes that claim Robin is a prisoner and he is forced to perform two rescues simultaneously. Batman shows up at the site where Salvo has prepared a trap and a hired assassin, named The Icer, fires a rifle, apparently striking Batman. Strangely, at the same time, Batman shows up where the real Robin is being held as bait and as Robin yells a warning, Chino shoots at Batman.
