Psychic Sisters ArcEdit

After the threat of Garou and the Monster Association had passed. Fubuki, along with members of the Fubuki Group, visit Saitama at the new A-City base of operations for the Hero Association.

He's silently livid at the fact that said hero whom would never agree to work under their leader had recently become an A-Class Hero. Regardless of that, he would cater Saitama alongside Fubuki to the prison area of their escort's new home base. Whilst the two meet an old friend of their leader's, Mountain Ape and the rest would stand guard.[4]

Much too they're horror however they are beset by Tatsumaki at the prisons entrance.

Ape and the remaining few of his colleagues still conscious would attempt to bind the S-Class hero using a psionic hold taught to them by their leader. It was less than ineffective, as the tornado of terror just as easily blew right through the lot of them as she did before they erected they're psionic defenses.[5]
