Synopsis for "The Inside Story of the Outsider!"Edit
Batman and Robin are sent yet another message from the mysterious villain known as the Outsider, who this time sends coffins with Batman and Robin automatons to deliver the message to Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. Tracking the delivery of the coffins they have to battle off the Grasshopper gang and find finger prints belonging to the Outsider, which shockingly belong to Bruce Wayne's deceased butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
However, this is not the case, flashing back we learn that shortly after Alfred's death, his tomb was visited by scientist Brandon Crawford, who's audiometer revealed that Alfred was still alive. Trying to revive the comatose butler, Brandon bombarded the body with radiation which mutated Alfred into the evil Outsider, who then began his campeign against Batman and Robin.
Back in the present, Batman and Robin track down the Outsider to his hide out and battle him to a stand still before the strange creature can turn both Batman and Robin into coffins themselves. Knocking the Outsider out, Batman puts him on a machine which bombards him with radiation once more, which restors Alfred back to normal and in good health.After the battle, as Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson, bring Alfred back home to Wayne Manor where Alfred resumes his job as the Wayne butler, with the help of Dick's Aunt Harriet.
