Storyline

Antisocial Prof. Hammil's Remote Control device, which enables the user to take over any motor vehicle within 50 miles (!), is stolen by The Wizard, black-hooded mastermind, and his gang. Batman and Robin (who drive about in a standard convertible) must prevent the Wizard from obtaining diamonds, needed as fuel for the device, and rescue magazine photographer Vicki Vale from periodic perils. Where is the Wizard's base, reached only by remote controlled submarine? Which of several suspicious characters hides beneath the Wizard's hood? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

For three chapters, Robin tries to persuade Batman that the professor can't be the Wizard because he's a wheelchair invalid. In the 14th chapter, we see the professor up and walking about, even in front of Batman and Robin, with no explanation whatsoever, and no questioning on Batman and Robin's part. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Crime, striking our city night and day, is on the increase. Our undermanned police force is helpless to cope with the situation, but they have an ally - Batman - who with the faithful Robin, wages unending war against all criminals!

Very Good!
17 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

A very under rated chapterplay, Batman's costume is not as bad as they say . The actors are very good, the plot is very exciting, I will not tell you any more because I recommend you see it for yourself and cast a vote!
