Synopsis

Inspired by archival footage of the original Dynamic Duo, Brane Taylor and his nephew adopt their identities in the year 3051. The new Robin soon breaks his leg while fighting the henchmen of the evil Yerka. Brane decides to travel back in time to recruit the assistance of the original Robin: Dick Grayson. Some time after the successful completion of that case, Taylor again travels to the past to aid the original Batman while he recovers from a broken arm. Reporter Vicki Vale suspects Taylor of being an impostor, but she changes her mind after a successful ruse involving the original Batman.
