Poison Ivy has been pruned. But, what about the cover mystery?
Batman's Baffling Turnabout
Batman and Robin were catching some criminals on a pier warehouse, when Batman fell prey to a deadly trap....with an imposter all ready to take his place!
The caped criminal was a foe Batman had put in prison 5 years previously, thus he didn't know about Batman's logo change, the clue that tipped off Robin, and stopped this perilous plan from becoming fatally final.
1966 Batman TV series to remember the late Adam West, star of that show, who was the first Batman for so many of us, and was born on September 19th, 1928!
