Superman and Robin are wondering where Batman is when Ed Wiley, wearing a shirt covered in TNT and standing on the top of Metropolis Bridge, announces he has captured Batman and demands ten million dollars ransom. After Wiley blows himself up, partially catching Robin in the blast, it is up to Superman to interpret Wiley's last words and find Batman, but the escape artist has already freed himself from being buried alive.
