Super Powers, Prison, and Deep Cover: Running Man List-o-mania part 1

Running Man

It is Sunday today, which in my mind translates to…Running Man day! Time to kick off a new Lore in Stone Cities two part series, Running Man list-o-mania! Ever watched an episode with super powers and ended up scratching your noggin because you could not remember who had the death note and who could turn back time? Do you vaguely remember the cast being arrested but cannot remember their crimes? Hopefully part one, focusing on the episode-centric, will jog your memory. I hope you enjoy. Cheers.
