  • The Penguin appears to have gone straight. (Evidently the citizens of Gotham City have short memories; he tried the same trick in season one.) Not only that, he has emerged as the leading contender for mayor of Gotham City, thanks to a little-known provision of the city charter that permits felons to run for elective office. Mayor Linseed, facing almost certain defeat, convinces Batman to run for mayor. This displeases the Penguin, who doesn't want to leave anything to chance. He lures Batman and Robin into a trap and, by episode's end, things don't look good for the Dynamic Duo.

  • To everyone's surprise, the Penguin announces his plan to run for Gotham City Mayor. He quickly wins the public's favor with his sudden "good deeds" and high-profile campaign. Batman realizes the only way to stop him is by running for mayor himself, but the Caped Crusader's low-profile and issue-based campaign seems no match for the Penguin's flashy show.

  • When Penguin runs for Mayor of Gotham city, Batman is persuaded to run against him.
