Number of Appearances: 1
Ally: Mr. Travers
Note: Travers hid on Rodgers' yacht to escape killer
Rodgers was a wealthy friend of Mr. Travers.
When Mr. Travers' portrait painting was shot with an arrow, he knew that it meant he was targeted by the murderer who had been killing everybody painted by the celebrated artist Antal. Travers had seen what had happened to previous targets of the killer. Neither the police nor Batman had been able to prevent them from being murdered. So Travers told the police he was going to protect himself. He did so by staying on his friend Rodgers' yacht.
The murderer (Mr. Wylie, disguised with a death mask) somehow figured out where Travers was hiding and followed him to the Rodgers yacht. Fortunately for Travers, Robin had also come to the yacht to defend Travers. Robin managed to defend Travers' life, but the murderous Mr. Wylie managed to get away.
Rodgers was never actually seen in this story, but he was mentioned many times. Pages 8 and 9 of this story take place entirely on the Rodgers yacht.
