Synopsis for "The Secret Origin of Ambush Bug: We Thought Him Up!"

The National Bureau of Origins has been assigned to learn the secret origin of Ambush Bug and sends some of their agents out to learn of the Bug's true origins, threatening Cheeks' safety to ensure co-operation. Ambush Bug tries to feed them the typical costume-from-outer-space-bitten-by-a-radioactive-spider origin from previous Ambush Bug stories, but they don't buy it.

In order to try and get Cheeks back, Ambush Bug tries to appeal to Lord Order and finds himself turned into a burned pile of flesh and bones. What follows are a series of completely false origin stories: How Ambush Bug saved his classroom from dinosaurs, to a futuristic city origin, to a origin similar to that of Batman -- the whole time Ambush Bug is nothing more than a pile of burnt flesh and bones. His soul arriving in heaven, Ambush Bug learns that Cheeks is not there and is summarily booted out.

Without a true origin story, Ambush Bug attempts to be put in a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rip-off, however this fails as well and Ambush Bug is put back in his jail cell. As it turns out the head of the N.B.O. is Cheeks himself.

Notes

Trivia
