Maxi-Man declares war on Mr. Miracle.
After being videotaped saving a group of office workers from a fire, the word is out that Bailey, NH has its own Superhero in the form of Mister Miracle. This pleases Oberon's new business partner, since there's not such thing as bad publicity. Even less pleased is the down-on-his-luck crime fighter, Maxi-Man.
Oberon continues spraying customers with Scott's mystery cleaning agent, an act which strangely goes unnoticed by the EPA. While Scott is at work, Barda discusses animal experimentation with Kathy, the next door neighbor.
Miracle and Maxi-Man have their first altercation after both try to interrupt the same purse-snatching. After each trying to convince the other to leave town, they have another altercation at the site of a traffic accident. Thankfully, one of the traffic victims convinces the two to stop their foolishness. Realizing that he isn't quite ready for a full-time hero gig, Maxi-Man leaves town for parts unknown.
