Friday Night Fights: Repeat Rehash Revenge - Round 10: Cowboys And Robots And Lanterns, Oh My!

The rules to Friday Night Fights: Repeat Rehash Relaunch are simple: we have to use at least one character who appeared in our last round. Last week, I had Hal Jordan get Bat-pwned, so this round I'm bringing back Happy Hal and teaming him up with legendary DC bounty-hunter and fellow movie star Jonah Hex.

Tonight's meeting between Hal and Hex comes from 1982's Justice League of America#199, which was written by Gerry "Criminal Intent" Conway, drawn by Don Heck and beautifully inked by Brett Breeding. Synopsis: The Lord of Time has sent Hal and 3 other Justice Leaguers back to the 1800's, where Hal ends up encountering and then riding with Jonah through the desert.

Hex's hearing and instincts kick in, and...

In fairness, Jonah, Hal hangs around with Guy Gardner, so I think he knows "crazy".

GL rushes on his glowy green plasma horse to attend to their would-be attacker, but Hal, being Hal, ends up......

....getting clocked in the head!!!

And that "man" Hal was so stupidly worried about hurting about turns out to be....

Yep, a cowboy robot!

(It's Gerry Conway, Hal. Just roll with it!)

In honor of this round's subject matter, tonight's fight music is an appropriate tune from Thin Lizzy.
