In an untold Batman story, the Egyptian super villain Pharaoh uses a mystic scepter to transform humans into obedient zombies. He unleashes them on a bank, transforming the guards who try to stop them. As Pharaoh exits to his Sarcophogusmobile, photojournalist Vicki Vale arrives to take photos, and witness the arrival of Batman and Robin... wearing mummy wrapping. The Pharaoh unleashes the power of the scepter on them, but Batman reveals that they have soaked the wrappings in buttermilk, the only thing proof against pharaoh rays. The heroes quickly subdue the zombies, knock the Pharaoh out, and break the scepter, returning the zombies to normal...
