Friday Night Fights: Minimum Clonage - Round 5: Crack The Whip, Part Deux!

Welcome once again to Friday Night Fights: Minimum Clonage, where no character can be re-used by the same fighter in the 12-round bout. Let's look at the Used Character Board to see who we can't use again:

Shadow Lass
Professor Zoom
Iron Man

Tonight's fight entry comes to us from Iron Man#124, by David Michelinie, John Romita Jr., and Bob Layton ( I now realize I've just done the last part of a Michelinie/Layton trilogy), and it picks up where last round's fight left off, with...

Wait a minute. What was the last name on the Used Character Board?

Iron Man

Ok, so I can't use Shellhead again, but that's ok because Tony Stark's date Bethany Cabe is also at the casino. Bethany, I should mention, is also a professional bodyguard.

So, anyway, yadda yadda yadda ...Whiplash teams up with Blizzard and Melter against Iron Man yadda yadda yadda... Iron Man beats up on Melter and then Blizzard...yadda yadda yadda...

Now here's Whiplash trying to get away:

Now, if I were directing the Iron Man movies instead of Jon Favreau, Beth would so be the lead role.

In honor of our heroine, tonight's fight music is "Beth" by Kiss. I can imagine Tony's version:

Beth, I hear you calling
But I can't come home right now
Me and the boys are fighting Ultron
And we just can't bring him down.

Just a few more hours
And I'll be back home to you
I think I hear Cap calling
Oh Beth , what can I do?
