Friday Night Fights: The Brawl In Montreal - Prize Fight: Double Trouble!

Welcome to our Friday Night Fights Prizefight Edition: The Brawl In Montreal! The rules for this round are simple: 1.) The fight must be at least 3 panels, and 2.) The fighters exchange equal blows until the final KO

Tonight's prizefight entry is a Starlinian smackdown from one of my favorite comics of my youth, Marvel Two-In-One Annual#2, written and illustrated by Jim Starlin and inked by Joe Rubinstein. This is the comic that made me fall in love with Jim Starlin stories. Unfortunately, later comics like Death Of The New Gods would eventually make me fall out of love with them.

Synopsis: Thanos has fallen in love with the personification of Death.

No, NOT the Neil Gaiman version. (Although that would have made Thanos' obsession more understandable.)

Anyway, the bad news is that the mad Titan has chosen to profess his love by....extinguishing the sun. (You couldn't settle for dinner and flowers, Big T?) Needless to say, the Avengers show up to stop him from implementing his grand romantic gesture Which leads to Thanos facing off against Thor and the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing.

DOUBLE trouble!

Maybe Thanos should have stuck with skywriting.

And speaking of "double trouble" and Thanos getting caught in a two-fisted crossfire, here's tonight's fight music!
