Synopsis for Superman and Batman: "Lonely in a Crowd"
Superman and Sonik attempt to keep rock star Marlon Monroe safe from murder attempts, while Batman tries to find out who has been puncturing holes in the plastic bubble-dwelling of a boy who has no immune system against disease. Eventually, Batman finds out that the responsible party for damaging the bubble is the kid himself, in an attempt to be allowed to return home. Meanwhile, Superman and Sonik save Marlon Monroe from one of his own servants, who has developed killer robots to eliminate the pop star.
In the aftermath, Bruce Wayne arranges for Marlon Monroe to visit the ill kid, who is a major fan of his work and Superman ponders a personal problem in the Fortress of Solitude.
