You won’t be disappointed when a new chapter of One Punch Man drops, even if there’s no Saitama in it. The author is doing a great job at portraying other S-class heroes, and even heroes from the lower class, as they fight crime and defeat monsters on a daily basis. So, if you’ve read the latest chapter, we’re going to talk about the upcoming One Punch Man chapter 97 in this article.
If you’ve been reading the chapters regularly, then you’d be aware that the heroes are currently raiding the monsters’ hideout and all the S-class heroes have gone their separate ways according to the Child Emperor’s plans. This is a clever way of giving each of them their own screen-time and showing off just how powerful they are. So, in one of the recent bouts, we got to see the true power of the pro hero, Flashy Flash, as he faced two familiar foes. His opponents were ninjas from his own village, also the ones who, as we saw in one of the earlier chapters, met with Speed-o’-Sound Sonic. There was a fight between the three, and seeing that Flashy Flash was just too powerful for them to defeat, they then transformed into monsters.
With an increase in speed and power, you’d think that it would be impossible for the pro hero to do anything against them, but he was able to hold on his own against them quite well. If that wasn’t enough, he was just looking for an opportunity to take care of them both simultaneously in order to prevent one of them to run away. And he did just that as he unleashed his ultimate move and completely decimated both his opponents by chopping them to pieces, along with the entire surrounding area.
One Punch Man Chapter 97 Spoilers, Predictions
Since all the S-class heroes have gone their different ways, it’s time to focus on some other pro hero and show off their powers. We already know the strengths and powers of heroes like Tatsumaki, Bang, Atomic Samurai and Puri Puri Prisoner as we have seen them in battle; so it’s time to show other heroes in action – especially Superalloy Blackluster, Zombieman and Pig God.
We can make safe assumptions that Pig God’s true strength is his capability to eat everything and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that he’ll be devouring monsters left and right without giving it a second thought. Moreover, Superalloy Blackluster also seems capable of inhuman strength, as we have seen glimpses of his power in some of the previous chapters, so seeing him go all out would also be a great idea.
However, we need to see the true extent of Zombieman’s powers and what he can do. The author hasn’t given him any screen-time as of yet and it’s time for the pro hero to shine in an entire chapter. However, since the official spoilers or leaks aren’t out yet, this is all just a prediction and we could see Saitama, along with King, make an entry in the upcoming chapter and be on his way to the hideout as well!
One Punch Man Chapter 97 Release Date
There doesn’t seem to be any fixed schedule of the release date of the chapters, so we can’t say for sure when the upcoming chapter will be out. The current chapter was released quite early, so there is hope for the next chapter to be out by next week as well, or the beginning of next month. We’ll certainly update this article as soon as we know about the official release date of the manga. Till then, let us know what you think will happen in the story, and how will the heroes vs. villains arc play out, in the comments section below!
