02 – Superheroes in New Argos: enter the Tigerman and the Hammerer

Egon “the Foreteller” and Renart “the Roaster” has been hired by Camille Dubois to investigate the strange behavior of her fiance Richard Robertson. Egon’s precog powers foretell a future attack by a Tigerman.

Rupert goes home to get some rest, leaving Egon alone in front of Richard’s house. Later, Richard comes out of the build and he is immediately attacked by the Tigerman, who comes flying from the sky. The Tigerman tries to grab Richard and carry him away flying. Egon immediately attacks with the superpower of his walking stick, giving Richard the possibility of running away. The Tigerman almost manages to reach Richard, but just then a robotic Beta-Cop comes out from an underground conduit and joins the fight.

The Beta-Cop and Egon put the Tigerman out of combat. The villain is taken into custody by the police. Richard thanks Egon for his help Egon asks if he knows the reasons behind the Tigerman’s attack, but Richard has no idea.

Egon and Renart keep Richard’s house under constant control. A couple of days later, four Beta-Cops enter the build and come out bringing Richard with them.
