The powers in charge do not like all the anti-government talk coming from the Bum, Tommy Galt. They want him silenced. The big shots go to the Major, leader of the Bums, to get rid of Tommy, but of course he can’t ask his own to rub out their own. He gives the mission to the Blackhawks, the younger generation of superhero Bums. He calls BossHawk, leader of the Blackhawks about the situation and conspire. The Major and BossHawk can’t give the real reason why they want Tommy out of the picture, so they make up some bullshit story about Tommy stealing the ‘spirit of the Burnside Bums.’ The Blackhawks are hunting Tommy and the Bums don’t like it. They too are looking as they were told that he stole the ‘spirit of the Bums.’ Tommy’s own brother tries to turn him in. But what spirit? Tommy is eventually caught.
