Friday Night Fights: Free For All - Round 5: How Hizzoner Handles Intruders

For tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Free For All, we're going to get political as we focus on Ex Machina's Mayor Mitchell Hundred, a former civil engineer who gained the power to communicate with and command mechanical devices after an accident on the Brooklyn Bridge. Hundred initially used his powers as a superhero called the Great Machine until he retired to become the mayor of New York City.

Tonight's mayoral melee comes from Ex Machina#8, written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Tony Harris and Tom Feister. Mayor Hundred is enjoying a beer at Gracie Mansion when he is confronted by intruders.

How does Hizzoner respond?

First, he uses his cyberpathic powers while yelling out his favorite Scorpions song.

Then he uses his cell phone..... make a long distance connection.

And, finally, he proceeds to waste some perfectly good beer.

I wish Daley would do that!

Tonight's fight music is "The Politics Of Dancing" by Re-Flex. For other examples of the politics of butt-kicking, click here. And please remember to exercise your right to vote!

The weird thing, is that to me, he looks just like Max Lord.

Supposedly, Hundred's look is based on a friend of Tony Harris, the artist. But, yeah, there are tons of similarities. What's also eerie is how their powers mirror each other: Lord commands people and Hundred commands machines.
