"Zero Hour for Earth!"Edit

When an Interpol agent is assassinated at Gotham Airport, Batman and Robin decide to investigate the involvement of the international crime organization called the Hydra of Crime.

Flying to Holland, and meeting with Interpol's chief, Batman and Robin begin following a series of clues that take them around the world in an attempt to discover what the Hydra of Crimes plot is, and foil it before they can launch their attack on the world.

Traveling from Holland, to India, to Greece, to France and finally Hong Kong, the Dynamic Duo learn the secret loccation of Karabi, the leader of the Hydra of Crime in a location in Southeast Asia. They also learn that Karabi has secured a nuclear weapon and is planning to transport it to one country and launch it at one of its enemies and so cause a nuclear war between the two.

Finding Karabi's secret base, Batman and Robin are captured by his men and locked in a cell where they are forced to listen an alarm clock which is timing the moment when Karabi will launch the nuclear warhead at the opposing country. Tricking the soldiers into letting them by offering knowledge of how Karabi's plan will fail, Batman and Robin knock them out when they're caught off guard by the ringing alarm clock.

Batman and Robin then storm the facility which Karabi has setup to launch the missile, and stop him at the last moment and turn him over to Interpol. Reading over Karabi's diary, they learn of Hydra operations in other parts of the world to gain wealth for the organization, and so Batman and Robin foil each one, taking advantage of the different time zones of each country. After they have finished their mission, they return to the States and laugh about how they got home at the same time they rounded up the Hydra of Crime, remarking that because of the time zones they have been in three places at the same time.
