White River Rumble
Luther Bayliss’ Story (Dave)
On the advice of Charlie, Luther goes to meet Danny 40, the bum-ranger of White River State Park. Luther urges Duke Morgan to join him; Danny 40 will explain the danger the city faces and why Duke’s abilities are needed. During their meeting, Danny is ambushed by agents of Jonah.
During his annual “fundraiser,” at WRSP, Jack stumbles across a scrap between Luther, Danny & Duke and Jonah’s goons. Seeing this as an excellent opportunity to relieve some bad guys of their ill-gotten gains, Jack lends his unique talents to the local boy and the lovable bum.
When Jack enters the fray, Duke lays spells to lay the smackdown down.
