Friday Night Fights:KAPOW!! - Round 5: Brother vs. Brother

It's a fact of life: Sometimes brothers fight. My brother and I had some knock-down dragouts back in the day. It happens.

It even happens among superheroes, as this round of Friday Night Fights: KAPOW!!! will demonstrate. Sometimes, things even end in onomatopoeia.

This scene from AVENGERS#23, Vol. 3, by Kurt Busiek, George Perez, and Al Vey, is one of those times.

Synopsis: Simon Williams aka Wonder Man has recently come back to life (again). He has started a relationship with Wanda Maximoff aka the Scarlet Witch. The Vision, who was Wanda's former husband and whose persona was created from Simon's brain patterns, is a bit upset by this, but not for the reasons you might think:

It's obvious from that scene above that ol' Vizh is going through some self doubts and identity issues. But Wonder Man, not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, doesn't quite catch on right away, and this awkward exchange follows:


Wow! Vision hit Simon so hard he's bleeding Kirby Dots!
