Friday Night Fights: Fight Life! - Round 1: Whack a Lantern!

Welcome to Round 1 of the latest Friday Night Fights bout, entitled "Fight Life".  By sheer coincidence, Sally P has also declared this week to be "Whack a Lantern Week.".  What to do? Answer: Showcase a GL smackdown featuring Guy Gardner!

Tonight's emerald whomping comes from Justice League America#54, written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis and illustrated by Chris Wozniak and Bob Smith. This was the part of the "Breakdowns" crossover in the Giffen League comics. Synopsis:  Maxwell Lord has been shot. The U.N. appoints Ambassador Heimlich to be his acting replacement, and Heimlich's first maneuver is to fire Blue Beetle and Ice and replace them with Tasmanian Devil and Dr. Light (Kimiyo).

Here, Taz introduces himself to Guy Gardner and expresses his regrets over Beetle's and Ice's dismissals. Guy, of course, reacts in his usual diplomatic fashion.

Tonight's fight music is "Breakdown" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Oh Guy. Diplomatic as always. On the other hand, Taz REALLY couldn't have had much contact with the aforesaid Mr. Gardner if he thought that he and Dr. Light could just waltz in and take Beetle's and Ice's matter HOW nice he tried to be about it!

A lovely whacking.
