Challenge of the Calendar Man-- The caped crime-fighters battle a bizarre bandit, who is FIVE CRIMINALS IN ONE, each with a different costume for each of the four seasons--and a special one for the mysterious fifth season!

The Joker's Utility Belt-- Batman's Utility Belt has gotten him out of many a tight squeeze-- but the infamous crime clown steals a march on him when he dreams up a zany Utility Belt of his own!
