As Armes approached the lobby he could be confronted by a large Oriental who would grab him by the collar and say, “You’ve been pushing around the wrong people, Armes.” Jay would then project his thin smile, inform the Oriental that he was a man of peace, then flip the startled giant over his shoulder with a lightning-quick maneuver of his hooks. Armes would deflect the blow with one of his steel hands, jump into the air, and paralyze the second assailant with a judo chop.

Fred would presumably go on eating his steak and chili.
