Synopsis for "Batman Versus the Vampire (Part I)"

Batman discovers that his fiancée Julie Madison, while under a hypnotic spell, had recently tried to murder a man. Bruce takes her to see a therapist who recommends therapy and an extended vacation to France and Hungary - "the land of werewolves!" Determined to keep an eye on her, Bruce attends the vacation voyage with Julie. On the boat, Batman finds Julie falling under another hypnotic trance. The man responsible for Julie's state is a masked figure known as the Monk. The Monk and Batman clash on the boat, and the Batman later chases him to a laboratory in Paris.

In Paris, Batman breaks into the Monk's headquarters and falls victim to a trap. Batman escapes from the various traps and chases the Monk out of the castle. He knows that the Monk likely traveled to his estate in Hungary and plans on following him there.
