The Uncanny Adventures of Spot is the 24th arc in Housepets!.



Following the events of the The Continuing Adventures of Spot, Spot has lost his powers due to the effects of Orphanite. The Nefarious Villain reveals his plan to...tie Spot up, so that nothing will go wrong! The yellow Nefarious Villain asks why don't they just shoot him, but the Villain proclaims that without his powers, they will finally be able to reveal his identity. He pulls on Spot's face, but it isn't a mask.

While the villains argue, a tied up Stripe argues that they wouldn't be in this situation if Spot didn't try so hard to fight fairly. Spot proclaims that if he surrenders his principles his fighting is meaningless. Stripe asks him what is that, but Spot misunderstands and gives her the definition of 'meaningless,' before saying it's for justice and and that sort of stuff (the Orphanite is interfering with his 'super intellect.') Spot contemplates that he's totally helpless, until Stripe tells him he still has the body of Atlas, even without his superpowers, something Spot didn't recognize (again due to the Orphanite.)

Meanwhile the Nefarious Villains are arguing what to do with Spot. The first one argues that they need to reveal Spot's identity so that they can humiliate him, while yellow one argues that they can do that if they shoot him first, and that he is risking making them lose. The first villain tells him to hand in his bad-guy papers. The yellow villain reveals he has a secret of his own, he is really...THE CYBORG (in a much better drawn panel.)

Cut to Joey and Peanut, with Joey haven drawn the final panel, asks Peanut for $10. Peanut argues that it's just lines on paper, something he does too.
