Synopsis for "A Tug of the Wrench!"Edit
James-Michael awakes from a nightmare where he, as Omega, fails to prevent the murder of all his friends by Nick, Tank, and the killer robots he had previously envisioned Omega fighting. Ruth tries to comfort him, but quickly gives up against James-Michael's uncooperative attitude, going back to bed after calling him a "robot", a comment that hits home for the boy. He decides to sneak out for a walk around Hell's Kitchen.
Meanwhile, Gramps has taken "Sam" out drinking with his elderly friends. Omega hasn't tasted alcohol before and samples it reluctantly, not liking the dulling effect it has on his senses. They escort Gramps' friend, Mamie home, and after she enters her building, Gramps tells Sam about how her friend Ethel was recently killed by a mugger. Before they can leave, a scream is heard from Mamie's apartment and Omega flies through the window to find her struck down by a large man wielding a wrench. Wrench gets the drop on the inebriated Omega and escapes, but Omega follows him, observing that the man is mentally ill.
James-Michael spots Amber on a date during his walk and feels an inexplicable jealousy driving him to hide from her as she walks by. When Amber gets home to find James-Michael missing, she heads back out alone to find him, though she's partially encouraged by the boy showing signs of working out his inner restlessness for once. She finds him in an arcade just before some other boys gang up on him for winning too much at pinball. She starts to rush him home through a dark alley, but they're intercepted by a violent and unstable Wrench. Omega swoops in to protect them, but Wrench pulls out a gun and grazes Omega's head, knocking him out. Amber tries to provide a diversion for James-Michael to escape, but the boy remains frozen in fear as Wrench kocks her out as well. In a moment of desperation, the omega symbols appear on James-Michael's palms again and he shoots an energy blast that instantly incapacitates Wrench, leaving James-Michael the last body in the alley standing, bewildered at what transpired.
