Synopsis for "Starstruck"
Robin is observing a celebrity event, but when an armed man approaches the female singer Normandy Shields, it is not Robin who interferes but a huge masked man calling himself Joe Hollywood. The weapon of the man turns out to be a water pistol which makes Joe Hollywoods deed look less heroic than he intended.
A little later, Robin confronts Joe who thinks of himself as the bodyguard of the rich and famous. Joe tells Robin that Miss Shields is being threatened by a stalker. Robin suggests that he will find out the identity of the stalker and then Joe will be able to catch him before he does any harm. After Robin copied the harddrive of Miss Shield's laptop he starts his search for the stalker. Because he is not able to trace the e-mail address, Robin asks Oracle for help. Oracle is not only able to trace the stalker who is on his way to Gotham City, but she also discovered that someone used the laptop of Miss Shields to actively lure the stalker to Gotham. To Robin it is obvious that Joe Hollywood is responsible because he attempts to increase his own fame.
Robin makes his way to the hotel where Normandy Shields is staying and after kicking the bodyguard to the ground Robin angrily tells Joe what he found out about him. But the stalker is present as well and has forced Normandy Shields to flee outside the window of her room. While Joe handles the stalker, Robin successfully brings Miss Shields back inside. With tears in her eyes the singer confesses that she baited the stalker to get some more coverage. Robin apologizes to Joe, but when Joe wants to share his origin and how he got bulletproof, the Boy Wonder quickly leaves ...
