Friday Night Fights: Free For All - Round 12: Green On Green, Part Tres!

Our final round of Friday Night Fights: Free For All is also the final "Green On Green" round of this bout. A "Green On Green" round is one where a Green Lantern fights a Green Lantern. I've featured Guy Gardner vs. Kilowog and John Stewart vs. Hal Jordan in prior "Green On Green" rounds, so tonight I'm shifting the spotlight onto Kyle Rayner. And who is Kyle's emerald-clad opponent in this round?


Well, the Parallax part of himself, anyway.

Tonight's fight comes from Tales Of The Sinestro Corps: Parallax#1 by Ron Marz, Adriana Melo, and Marlo Alquiza. Synopsis: Parallax has taken control of Kyle Rayner and trapped Kyle in a prison in his own mind. Parallax-as-Kyle decides to gloat by visiting Kyle in his prison. Kyle squares off against Parallax, first as Ion and then as Green Lantern, and gets defeated both times....

...leaving Kyle powerless.

But here are some facts to keep in mind about Kyle Rayner:

1. Just because Kyle has no chance of stopping someone doesn't mean he won't fight them anyway. With any weapon he can find, because.....

2. Kyle is very imaginative.

3. Threatening one of Kyle's loved ones, particularly a woman? Big mistake!

And, finally....

4. Kyle Rayner is awesome!

Remember Kyle's famous "lead pipe moment"? This was his lead pencil moment! And he's had more great moments since then, even recently.

Tonight's fight music is "In My Head" by Queens Of The Stone Age.
