Synopsis for Batman and Deadman: "Second Chance for Deadman?"

When Batman stops a bunch of heavily armed crooks and one of them turns out to be Waxey Doyle, a crook who has been on the 10 most wanted list, but under a new identity created by plastic surgery, Batman begins searching for the location of this facility which provided Doyle with the service of changing his identity.

Believing it to be located at the Pygmalion Spa in Cornucopia, Florida, Batman tires to scope the place out as Bruce Wayne but cannot get any clues. Enlisting the aid of Deadman to possess on of the ringleaders to find the truth, Batman soon finds himself double crossed when Deadman -- having a woman who loves him (all be it a woman who loves the criminal he possesses) decides to turn against Batman and live with his newfound lover.

However, things go sour when Deadman has to save Batman's life and has to kill the criminal he fell in love with. Deadman flees the scene cursing his fate while Batman is left to dismantle the operation.
