Synopsis for "Big Stick Energy, Part 1 of 4"

On the drive to Amnesty Bay, Marcus has a dream of the Monkey King and his adventures in ancient China. They stop at a gas station and Marcus thinks about how Batman claimed his parents were the Penguin's henchmen. He thinks this is impossible and Batman is just a jerk, but notices that when Superman flies overhead his parents quietly move under the station canopy to avoid being spotted.

At Amnesty Bay High School, a strange girl singles Marcus out in the cafeteria, gives him a banana and walks away laughing. Meanwhile, his parents go to work at Black Manta's hidden lair. He initially hired them to upgrade his submarine, but he now wants them to release another demon from a different gourd. They agree to do it if he allows them to channel the demon into a small hermit crab.

After school, Marcus bumps into the girl again in town. She rips off his shirt to reveal his circlet and identifies him as "the monkey". She chases him along the waterfront until Shifu Pigsy shows up driving a food truck. Pigsy slows the girl down long enough for Marcus to transform and they fight. Marcus does well until she tackles him into the water and Marcus has a panic attack, reverting to human form. Pigsy fishes him out and gives him a battle staff, which Marcus uses to fight the girl off, but when she flees into the ocean he is unable to follow her, despite Pigsy telling him this is the perfect opportunity to conquer his fears.

The girl, who is revealed to be Shellestriah, the half-human daughter of the Trench King, reports back to her father that the monkey god is in Amnesty Bay.
