Batman #163 (1964)

Its two Silver Age Batman stories in one book….aren’t we blessed?

In the first story, Alfred writes some fanfic (for real) that imagines Dick-Batman and Robin Jr. Jr. teaming up with Batwoman II on Earth-40 to face a mad scientist that failed engineering hard and made a fist-ship that should never fly. Thankfully, 100 lb Batwoman II is a kayfabe linebacker and can tackle steel machines into mobsters with ease.

In the second story, Joker puts Batman on trial for not allowing crime to happen. Batman cosplays Robin as a smallpox sufferer and go on to thwart Joker’s chances at winning a tour of the Batcave like he’s Vicki Vale or something.
