Friday Night Fights: Maxim - Round 3: Double-Team!
I won last week's round of Friday Night Fights: Maxim. I have a little FNF tradition that every time I win a round, the next round I post must somehow be related to the Legion of Super-Heroes. And since last week's victorious fight was between Superman (formerly Superboy) and Lar (Mon-El) Gand, I thought it would be appropriate (and fun) to show what happens when everybody's favorite Kryptonian and everybody's favorite Daxamite work together on the same side.
Tonight's El collaboration comes from Superboy#239, by Paul Levitz, Jim Starlin, and Josef Rubinstein. Synopsis: Ultra Boy has been framed for murder. Rather than just take his chances with the 30th Century justice system, he escapes Legion custody and goes on the run to find proof to clear himself. of course, the Legion finds him first. After taking out Timber Wolf, Colossal Boy, and Sun Boy, U-Boy is almost home free.
(Spoiler: Don't worry. He gets cleared of all charges.)
Tonight's fight music is by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi, featuring Jack White.
