Synopsis for "Hero Is a Dirty Name"
When Batman and Superman perform one of their usual heroic stunts, the people of Gotham City show them their gratitude with exception of their own sons, who demand the heroes to stand trial for their selfish heroic deeds. Batman and Superman agree to stand trial and they are found guilty of the charges. Batman and Superman are forced to remain locked in a fake camp site.
With their fathers locked away, the Super Sons come across a large criminal plot by an international criminal known only as Tempo. While investigating the case, the junior heroes find out that Flash and Green Arrow, along with Aqua-Man, are also trying to capture the criminals. The Super Sons are suspicious, believing that Flash and Green Arrow are in fact their fathers masquerading as the heroes, but every time they try to prove it, they end up empty-handed.
The Super Sons agree to work together with Flash and Green Arrow and they eventually manage to stop the evil criminal scheme with the elders' assistance. It is then that the Super Sons realize the importance of their fathers' actions and they go to apologize for their immature behavior. In the aftermath, Batman and Superman talk about their failed impersonations of their two super-hero partners, as well as Aqua-Man, and how the real ones helped their sons see the truth.
