Friday Night Fights: Repeat Rehash Revenge - Round 11: Adios Spaceman, Hello Batman!

The last round of Friday Night Fights: Repeat Rehash Revenge featured Jonah Hex teaming up with Hal Jordan. However, Happy Hal isn't the only Justice Leaguer that Jonah's met before. This week's round features our favorite bounty hunter locking horns with none other than the World's Finest Team.

Tonight's hoedown showdown comes from Superman/Batman#16, part of the "Absolute Power" story arc written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Carlos Pacheco and Jesus Merino. Here, Supes and Bats find themselves in an alternate timeline.

 Superman reaches to help his friend, only to........

....immediately take five in the back courtesy of....

.....Jonah Hex????

"Adios, Spaceman." My favorite line in this whole arc!

But Jonah's so focused on the Man of Steel that he forgets about....


Once again, it looks like the sheer unbridled will and incredible fighting skills of the Caped Crusader pulls the World's Finest Team from the brink of death.

Or not.

(Don't worry, dear readers! They didn't stay dead!)

Who will appear in the next and final round of this bout? Supes? Bats? Jonah? Or could it be Jonah's last-panel accomplice, Scalphunter? Stay tuned! In the meantime, listen to this week's fight music by Bon Jovi!
