SYNOPSIS

Crimefighters Batman and Robin begin investigating a ring of Japanese saboteurs who plan to steal the city's radium supply. The gang kidnaps Martin Warren, the uncle of Batman's girl friend, Linda, and forces him to reveal the location of the precious element.

Finally, they capture the evil doctor and force him to return Linda and Warren (who have been turned into zombies) to normal. Daka tries to flee the arriving police and falls into a pit of alligators in which he had tried to trap ...
