A throng of Police and SWAT teams arrive. The authorities led by a bungling Inspector Badger, stage a raid that goes horribly wrong. A seige ensues and the would-be robbers become hostages, unwillingly allied with this suspect crew of new colleagues and an enigmatic woman named Jo. The assault continues outside the bank, under the efficient supervision of Professor Corner and her mysterious Cyclops agency, but the situation inside gets even ... Written by TJ
