Synopsis:
Batman, not fully convinced that Doctor Death had been killed, reads an interesting note in the local newspaper. Doctor Dark was low on money due to his previous encounter with Batman and went after Mr. Jones's fortune to resupply himself. Because of the poor economy during the depressing, the Jones's did not have very much money but did have a large wealth of diamonds in a safe. Batman deduced this, and stops one of Doctor Dark's henchmen from opening the safe and stealing the diamonds. Batman follows the criminal back to a store where he again comes face-to-face with Doctor Dark who was behind the crimes and heroically apprehends him.
