In this story, Empowered has to go undercover as a "sexy librarian", because the villain of the story is literally obsessed with that kind of trope. Empy walks through the library wearing the ridiculous outfit, complete with glasses.
Very suddenly, she is chloroformed and kidnapped by an unseen thug. She's gagged and bound with great ease by this master thug. She's thrown into the trunk of a car and driven away.
In the next page, Empy is shown bound and gagged to an office chair, still in her librarian outfit.
All around classic and great scene from Adam Warren.
