The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #6

The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #6 opens with Mystery, Inc. running away from a case of bank robberies across Gotham City rather than helping Batman solve them. Although confused, Batman continues working on the case on his own (we don't get Robin or another member of the Bat-Family here). The reason for the gang's odd behavior is revealed in a flashback where Madame Xandu warned the kids that helping Batman on his latest case could lead to disaster for the Dark Knight Detective.

While the bank robbers themselves aren't all that interesting, and story is set up to examine the gang's odd behavior more than solve the case, the set up does offer a different type of story with both Batman and the gang eventually coming to doubt the prophecy leading to an unmasking of the fake fortune teller in classic Scooby-Doo fashion revealing another classic Batman villain.
