Synopsis for "Crime From The Skies!"

The Pink Flamingo had finished the Animal Essence Extraction Machine and extracted the essence of an eagle in order to gain its abilities.

The next night, Reid and Jerry attended a fundraiser at the Midway City Museum of History. As the curator presented a Golden Phoenix from the Dynasty XIX of Egypt, the Pink Flamingo drank the eagle essence, giving him the wings and talons of an eagle, swooped in on the Golden Phoenix, and snatched it.

Another night later, in the Watchtower, the Knight Watchman and Kid Galahad were alerted to the Pink Flamingo's presence at the Midway City Opera House. The Queen of Antoria was attending a special performance of swan lake, so the two heroes rushed in an attempt to warn her of the Pink Flamingo, but were too late, as the villain swooped in and stole her crown, but before he escaped, the Knight Watchman found a feather that he left behind. Back at the Watchtower, the Knight Watchman analyzed a peregrine falcon feather with traces of human cellular tissue.

To investigate how the Pink Flamingo left behind a peregrine falcon feather, the Courageous Crusaders visited all of Midway City's exotic bird dealers, both legal and illegal until they tracked the sales of birds to the Pink Flamingo's hideout at Briggs' Bird Seed Co., where they found his machine. The duo believed that the best way to catch a bird was with a cat, so they placed a cat into the machine and extracted its essence. After the Pink Flamingo had returned with Faberge eggs from the office of Tabco president Robert Payne, the Knight Watchman, who had drank cat essence, sprung towards the Pink Flamingo, but missed and crashed into his machine, damaging it. In retaliation, the Pink Flamingo released all of his birds and ordered them to attack the heroes, but instead, the birds fled. Then, the Pink Flamingo attempted to flee, as well, but was stopped by Kid Galahad, who had drank robin essence and knocked the villain unconscious before locking him inside of a cage.

HQ subsequently went on alert and acting director Rick Ryan summoned Bobbie, who borrowed the experimental Iron Fist.

As Savage Dragon defended himself from B.A.D.G.E. agents, Bobbie intervened and attacked him with the Iron Fist, before she was disarmed.

Synopsis for "Who's Who In The Pantheon Of Heroes?"

A pin-up & character "key chart" listing the names of every character seen in the original two-page spread from Big Bang Comics #18.

Notes

  • The "Agents of B.A.D.G.E." story is an alternate version of chapter 15 of the 24-part Savage Dragon/Big Bang Comics crossover story arc. Because the creators were not completely happy with this version, it was redone as the version published earlier in Big Bang Comics #14.

Trivia

  • In "Crime From Above", Kid Galahad drank robin essence, likely as a reference to Batman's sidekick Robin.
