A few episodes later, Machineman succeeds in dismantling Tentacle; however, Professor K flees to Spain and his niece, Lady M, appears. With her aide Tonchinkan, they establish a new organization called “Octopus”. Like her uncle, she is allergic to children (whenever she is near one, her nose turns red).
