Friday Night Fights: Feet of Fury! - Round 8: Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots!

Normally in Friday Night Fights, I leave the robot battles to ShadowWing Tronix. But for Round 8, I'm making an exception because this fight features:

1. The art of Neal Adams

2. Sentinels

3. The man who inspired my blog's name, Dr. Henry McCoy aka The Beast.

Tonight's fight comes from Essential Classic X-Men#3, reprinting the late 60's Sentinel saga by Roy Thomas, Neal Adams, and Tom Palmer. Synopsis: Cyclops, Marvel Girl and the Beast have just liberated Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch, and the Toad from the Sentinels.

What happens next demonstrates what I love about Scott Summers: When he's not getting all emo or getting messed with by Professor X, Cyclops can be one sneaky bastard.

Case in point: His plan to mess with the Sentinels' sensors by having his team....dress like Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and the Toad.

How does this work? Pretty well, as it turns out....

Spacebooger knows how "Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots" should be played.
