Friday Night Fights: Feet Of Fury - Round 11: Pure Energy!
Last week in Friday Night Fights: Feet of Fury! , I noticed I had followed up past victories by posting a Legion of Super Heroes entry in the next round. So last week I posted another follow-up Legion entry....and won again.
So that means another Legion entry this week for Round 11. Only this time I'm changing things up a bit: The Legionnaire with the feet of fury isn't Karate Kid.
It's Drake Burroughs, aka Wildfire. Or rather, as he is known at the time of this story, ERG-1.
Our fight takes place in Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #201, in a story called "The Betrayer From Beyond", written by Cary Bates and drawn by the late, great Dave Cockrum. It's Legion Membership Tryouts Time again, and this issue focuses on an applicant named Molecular Master who has the power to make atoms really big. He makes it past the first round (not surprisingly, considering that his competition consists of such luminaries as Infectious Lass and Porcupine Pete). But there's one little problem: He's really an android who's been programmed to kill the Legionnaires and steal the Miracle Machine.
The one thing standing in his way? The aforementioned ERG-1.
How powerful are you, ERG?
Oh, that powerful.
It's up for debate whether that's technically a kick, but you can't deny that's some furious footwork. And you won't hear Molecular Master complaining.
