A reality show crew follows the scene of a robbery in progress as a small group of bank robbers try to escape, only to be chased down by several corporate-sponsored heroes in succession. Everyone from Dragon Kid to Rock Bison gets their shot at the robbers, but one of them manages to get away onboard a monorail. Superhero Wild Tiger attempts to use his enhanced strength to stop the monorail, but the robber continues his escape aboard a nearby blimp. Eventually, Tiger's strength runs out and both he and the remaining criminal have to be rescued by another rising superhero: Sky High.
In a ceremony held the next night, Blue Tiger is miffed that the owner of the reality show has christened his son, Barnaby Brooks Jr., as the nation's newest superhero. On top of that, Sky High has been chosen as the leading ratings-getter among all of the sponsored heroes, and Tiger decides to leave early as he can't stand that he's no longer gotten the attention he once had.
The next day, Kaburagi (Tiger's normal identity) goes to the office of his corporate sponsor "Top Mag!" only to discover that they were bought out by rival "Apollon Media" and shut down. And now the Tiger has gone with them. However, Kaburagi does have a second chance to continue his superheroism working for the new company, so he visits the offices of Apollon where a businessman offers to give him a new suit and a new sponsorship under the condition that he work with a new partner: Barnaby Brooks Jr.
