Doctor Karl Hellfern a.k.a Doctor Death has perfected his death by pollen extract. With it he plans to extort money from wealthy targets. However he fears that the Batman will interfere.

Later, as Bruce Wayne, he sees Jabah attempting to use the pollen extract on a victim exiting an expensive club. After foiling the attack, Wayne changes into his Batman guise and follows Jabah back to Doctor Death’s secret lab. The Batman quickly immobilizes Jabah and chases Doctor Death.

Before he can, Batman lunges a fire extinguisher at him and the Doctor drops the tube on the floor nearby him. The evil doctor is then consumed by the flames.
