Identity Crisis (Batman)

Scarecrow tortured Batman with his fear gases. Tim disobeyed direct orders and went out to help Batman. He burst into the abandoned warehouse, and got his own dose of fear gas. It momentarily disabled him, but he fought through it and knocked Scarecrow into a shelf of his own mixtures. Crane was neutralized. Tim saved Vicki and Batman. Back at the cave, Bruce gave him the new Robin suit.
