Batman has to take care if something outside of Gotham City, and leaves things in the capable hands of Dick Grayson, who will take up the mantle of the bat for the time being. (The new) Batman and Robin are asked by Commissioner Gordon to investigate some killings in the river area, and they discover that Killer Croc is responsible. He is captured, but Gordon is already aware that he is dealing with a third Batman.
