LAST JET TO GOTHAM

Called to Gotham Airport when word that mobster Joe Angel is trying to sneak back into the country, Batman and Commissioner Gordon are at the ready to capture him when he lands. However, the airplane mysteriously crashes into the ocean when it's caught in a water-spout. Batman calls his ally Aquaman for help regarding the crash and the monarch of the sea tells the caped crusader that he was responsible for the crash.  Getting air-dropped near the crash site, Batman dives down to investigate what happened. On the ocean floor, Batman finds that the people aboard are still alive inside the plane because there cabin is still pressurized and they have air left. He's then attacked by men in scuba gear whom he fights off. He's next attacked by Aquaman who rips off his diving gear, and dragged away. Revived aboard Aquaman's Golden Dolphin submarine, Batman learns the truth behind Aquaman's actions.  Aquaman had learned that aboard the plane is a nuclear bomb that has been placed in there by opium dealers to get revenge against the United States over their pressure to destroy Poppy crops across the world. The bomb was set to be pressure sensitive and once it landed at Gotham Airport it would detonate. Aquaman acted in the interest of Atlantis, because such an explosion would cause a war between countries that would wipe every living thing off the map. Batman refuses to allow the people aboard the plane to be sacrificed even if it means preventing nuclear war, and convinces Aquaman to help him come up with another way to stop the bomb.  They return to the crash site to find that the US authorities had recovered the plane. The two heroes then rush to stop it from being brought to Gotham Airport, however have opposition from the Opium dealers. In the end, the two heroes succeed in their task and have the bomb removed and disposed of before the plane is returned to the airport. Batman thanks Aquaman for his help before Aquaman returns to the ocean.
