Friday Night Fights: Minimum Clonage - Round 3: Growing Pains!

Welcome once again to Friday Night Fights: Minimum Clonage, where the object is to not re-use a dominant fighter in any of the twelve rounds. Before we start, let's review the Used Character Board (ala Wheel of Fortune) to see who we can not use for the remainder of this bout:

Shadow Lass

Professor Zoom

Our host, Spacebooger, won last week's round with a giant bee drawn by John Byrne. So tonight my entry will feature Byrne's rendition of insects of a different variety, courtesy of Marvel Premiere#47, featuring the debut of Scott Lang as Ant-Man, with Byrne being assisted by Iron Man team supreme David Michelinie and Bob Layton.

Synopsis: Ex-con Scott Lang attempts to recruit surgeon Dr. Erica Sondheim to perform a life-saving operation on his daughter Cassie (who would later be known as Stature). Before he can do so, she is grabbed and taken to Cross Technological Enterprises to operate on its owner. While breaking into a mansion for money to finance bypassing Cross' security, he unknowingly breaks into Henry Pym's home and finds something more valuable: Pym's Ant-Man costume and size-changing gas. Lang uses both items, along with some ants, to break into Cross and find Dr. Sondheim, but is driven away by Cross' security force. Here, Scott tries again. ( Tonight's fight music is "Antmusic" by Adam and the Ants):


Spoiler: Scott rescues Dr. Sondheim and saves Cassie, only to be blown up and killed 25 years later because Brian Bendis thought destroying the Avengers team and replacing them with his pet characters would be "kewl".

As always, don't forget to vote!
