Friday Night Fights: Feet of Fury! - Round One: Fleet Feet!

Welcome to Round One of Friday Night Fights: Feet of Fury! According to our gracious host, Spacebooger, each fight entry must contain one K.O. kick.

Well, then, how about three K.O. kicks?

Delivered at the same time?

By the same guy?

To the same guy?

Here at Stars And Garters, I aim to please!

Back in the Bronze Age, Oliver Queen wasn't the only best friend of Hal Jordan's who kept beating the living crap out of Hal. There was also Barry Allen, the Flash.

And while Barry didn't beat up Hal nearly as often as Ollie did, his beatings were much more systematic and savage. And much cooler visually.

Case in point:

This Hal Jordan smackdown at the, feet.. of his old pal Barry takes place on the cover of Flash#282, rendered by Ross Andru and Dick Giordano. The interior story was written by Cary Bates, who back then was DC's undisputed craziest writer who wasn't named Bob.

I don't know what it is, but there is just SOMEthing so darned satisfying about smacking Hal around.
