Rufus D. Flywheel is coming home from a long hiatus in which he trained his body and mind for vigilantism. on the other side of the block, Thomas Wright Light is returning from Robexpo. A flash of his future sight brings flywheel to a halt. two goons and Lahar are walking out of a building, when a goon opens fire on a witnessing truck driver. lahar also has the other goon detonate a bomb in the building they just exited. the bomb destroys the building. and a goon spots Flywheel. After the fight, lahar turns into a puddle of mud and flees.
Light and Rufus rescue a woman who was trapped in the collapsing building. and help her boyfriend, a man named John Mason. at Light’s Base of Operations, light manages to save Rachel Megaera with his nanite repair tank. The whole group then retires to flywheel’s Casino.
A car accident outside gets everyone’s attention, Lahar had somehow found them and brought a gang of goons. After the ensuing fight, Lahar was dropped into water which will help prevent him from reforming. Light grabbed one of the goons before the police arrived.
