The bums gather to commiserate on their lives and share stories and philosophies about their religious beliefs. Spawn diplomatically joins into the conversation and avoids heating the age old debate of God versus the Devil. Later, in another part of the alley, a gang of bums plot to rob and kill one of their own. When Spawn steps in to question their motives, they open fire on him. He collapses, wondering why his costume isn't defending him against this assault.
