“THE MOST DANGEROUS TWENTY MILES IN GOTHAM CITY.” Batman helps foolproof a way to transfer a Communist spy to his masters in an exchange, in order to prevent a right-wing group from assassinating the agent during the process.
In "The most dangerous 20 miles in Gotham City" Batman is used by the military to point out flaws in their own protection system. The military need to guard a diplomatic prisoner from assassination as he is to be used in a prisoner exchange. Foreign agents want him dead, however, and Batman needs all his wits about him to ensure the assasination attempt fails and the prisoner exchange goes ahead.
Batgirl stars in "Candidate for danger!" Revealing her secret identity to her Commissioner Father, Barbara Gordon receives his blessing as she announces she is going to run for congress. Before too long, Babs has drummed up plenty of support, but that support is infiltrated by thugs trying to organise a protection racket. Changing to Batgirl, Barbara cracks the gang of hoods. Has she done enough to be elected?
