One-Punch Man Wiki

"Outlaw" (アウトロー, Autorō, Tonari: 55 + 56) is the 40th chapter of the One-Punch Man manga series.


Part 1[]

Genos returns to Dr. Kuseno with parts from G4, asking Dr. Kuseno to use them to make him stronger, to which the doctor is amazed and eventually agrees. However Dr. Kuseno is still worried for Genos and asks him to not go too far, to which Genos replies that he is not and it is still within his limit, even telling the doctor the goal Saitama set for him. Worrying for Genos' safety the doctor asks to meet with Saitama. The doctor then checks to see if Genos is still after is original goal to finding the cyborg that destroyed his hometown, to which Genos replies he is but has not yet found a clue to the Cyborg's whereabouts, but shows he is still determined as ever to destroy said "Evil". Dr. Kuseno sees Genos' high-strung attitude and tells him he is concerned about him, telling him to not act rash and call him before confronting the "Evil Cyborg", telling him he is not alone in that fight, to which Genos agrees.

Meanwhile at the Hero Association Headquarters. Sitch had gathered all villains and criminals in the headquarter, telling them it is not a trap and is not about their criminal activities. He even tells them to ignore the three heroes behind him (A-Class Rank 5 Heavy Tank Loincloth, A-Class Rank 6 Blue Fire and A-Class Rank 7 Magic Trick Man) as they are just his bodyguards, which causes the criminals to get a bit ambitious. The heroes are concerned of what reason could be for said gathering of criminals, but are still bracing themselves, while Sitch knowing the strength of said heroes, thinking it would be foolish to attack. Just when Sitch was about to hand out papers to the criminals, a voice is heard, asking of the whereabouts of the hero called Saitama, thinking he lives in said facility. Hearing Saitama is not there, the "voice" claims he has no reason to stay, which irritates Blue Fire. Said "voice" is revealed to be Speed-o'-Sound Sonic who throws all pamphlets in the air, much to Sitch's surprise, for he had not handed them out yet. Sonic talks about the reason for said gathering, which was to bring all help possible to protect the earth, to which he refuses, claiming he is not interested.

Part 2[]

Sonic is leaving the meeting. After hearing of the real reason for the gathering, Blue Fire is angered and confronts Sitch, asking him if it was true, to which Sitch tells him it was, since it is a dire time and everyone must now work together to save the earth. Sitch then proceeds to talk of the number of heroes currently in the hero association, and claims them not to be enough. Sitch says that because of the criminals strength that can rival some heroes, they are there, and that if they help they will be rewarded. Fundoshi mocks the idea, which provokes one of the criminals, who taunts him, Fundoshi then pummels the criminal to the ground. A man is shouting, and talks about the prophecy, claiming it is about him, provoking everyone to attack him, he reveals himself to be Garou.
