What happened during the One Punch Man Monster Association arc?
The One Punch Man Monster Association arc was one of the finest arcs created by the author. Garou discovers that he has God-like abilities and plans to become a monster, laying the groundwork for some fierce fights between Bang-Garou and Saitama-Orochi.
Garou's evil side killed Tareo, the one person Garou cared about. So, after losing him, Garou became hopeless and asked for assistance from Saitama. Garou also taught Saitama how to time travel in the Monster Associationarc.
Saitama manages to change the clock and correct Garou's wrongdoings, leaving him with Bang, who now has to look after him.
