Synopsis for "Malled"
Batman accepts the Spoiler's information on Cluemaster's Labor Day heist, but refuses to let her fight alongside himself and Robin, as he trusts neither her (lack of) experience nor her motives. Spoiler is told to go home, but as soon as the Dynamic Duo are out of sight, heads for the Castleland Park mall herself.
At midnight, Cluemaster and his gang put their plans into motion and attempt to steal the millions of dollars collected by the mall's charity telethon. Batman and Robin quickly interrupt the heist and subdue several of Cluemaster's men, but Cluemaster's getaway helicopter arrives in time to take him, his remaining henchmen, and the loot into the air. Before Batman can catch up to Cluemaster, the Spoiler descends on the helicopter and beats down the rest of Cluemaster's men.
Furious, Cluemaster grabs the Spoiler and tries to use her as a hostage against Batman. Batman warns Cluemaster against this, and reveals that the Spoiler is none other than Cluemaster's daughter. A shocked Cluemaster unmasks Stephanie, who takes advantage of his distraction and wraps a chain around his throat. Stephanie then attempts to strangle her father to death for his mistreatment of her, but is convinced to spare him by Batman.
As Stephanie's mask blows away in the wind, police helicopters begin to close in, bringing the Cluemaster's "ultimate heist" to a whimpering close.
