Synopsis

The sudden appearance of a new criminal basing his crime on time jogs Batman's memory into remembering that this criminal was his very first case after his parents were killed, and if the Clock has his way, the current case aginst him will be the Caped Crusader's last!

Notes

Batman's first case w/origin re-cap. Synopsis added by Craig Delich 10-23-07. [Oddity: This story in its story-telling and sequences used, is identical to that from the Robin vs. the Clock story found in Star-Spangled Comics #74, November, 1947.]
