At a ceremony making Bruce Wayne honorary chief of a local tribe, Batman and Robin are trapped by Two-Face and strapped to a giant coin. Two-Face flips the coin over a bed of spikes, and though the gimmick is rigged to land face down, the dynamic duo manages to create a magnetic field and flip the coin so that they land safely.
