Synopsis "Black Canary" is a bartender in a bar with the same name. She endures come-ons and one-liners from her patrons, with a shorter and shorter fuse. Finally she explodes after one patron feels up her rear end, and knocks out everyone in the whole bar. Her boss comes out of a back office, catching her robbing the unconscious patrons. She resigns, and then kicks him through a window when he calls her a name she had been enduring all night. After thinking about Batman, she steals a motorcycle, and takes off. Meanwhile, Batman and Dick Grayson are still in the air in the Batmobile, and dive underwater, where it becomes a submarine. Finally, Clark Kent sees on a milk carton that Dick Grayson is missing, then reads in the Daily Planet the details. He then gets angry, burns the paper, and changes to Superman.
