Batman II evades certain death by pulling an instant 180, which has to give him whiplash something fierce.

The next morning, Tim gets his driver’s license in the mail.

At Doyle’s place, the Trigger Twins get paid, get their Villain Team name, and get their next job – a train robbery. Specifically, the Money train – the train that transports each day’s fair collections in Gotham.

That night, Robin breaks into the Batcave to get his ride – a sports car called the Redbird, bemoaning Jean Paul’s neglect of the cave.

Meanwhile, at Calibre productions, executive Mr. Berkowitz gets a call from one of Batman’s rogues with a pitch for a bio-pic – a rogue with a killer smile…

It’s amazing what an iconic character design can do with just a smile.

In the Batcave, Robin reaches his car when Jean-Paul (who had removed the passenger seat from the Subway Rocket and replaced it with computer readouts) tries to stop him.

They fight, and the issue ends with Jean-Paul having Robin by the throat.

Is this the end of Riders in the Sky?!

The letters column includes a letter from the PR Manager of the Shepherd Spinal Center (in Atlanta, which an internet search says is still open) offering their services when it comes to depicting Bruce’s physical therapy. Also, a lot of “Say it ain’t so!” letters.
