We get reintroduced to Joe and Maria in brand new costumes here, but if I were re-writing the story now, I could probably cut this page entirely. All we learn is:

  • there’s a bank robbery in progress with civillians caught in the mix (we saw that on the last page).
  • Joe and Maria are working alongside the police.
  • Joe and Maria have new costumes (breaking the comics rule of show, don’t tell).
