Friday Night Fights: Assassin - Round 7: Killing Him Sadly!

Usually my rounds of Friday Night Fights: Assassin are rather uplifting. You'll find tonight's round, on the other hand, to be a bit of a....downer.

Our featured melancholy melee comes from Plastic Man#26 by Joe Millard and Jack Cole. Here's the lachrymose lowdown: Master thief Phil "Sadly-Sadly" Sanders, while on the run from Plastic Man, auditions for an off-Broadway play and, thanks to the tutoring of the casting director, discovers he can contort his face into a countenance so pitiable that he can make those who look at him feel so sorry for him that they can't resist doing anything he asks them to do.

Once he's figured out where Sadly-Sadly will strike next, the Ductile Detective disguises himself as a nearby security guard, taking special care not to look at Sadly's face. When Sadly strikes at the anticipated jewelry store, Plas makes his move.

And so begins our funereal fracas.

Thus the crowd feels so sorry for Sadly-Sadly that they....


And so Sadly-Sadly's doleful departure snaps the crowd out of its murderous malaise, leaving them to think they killed our Stretchable Sleuth.

(SOMBER SPOILER: They didn't.)

Tonight's fight music for our dour donnybrook is this mournful melody by They Might Be Giants.

Or Spacebooger will be very sad!

And "Ductile Detective"

I can't take credit for "Ductile Detective". That and "Stretchable Sleuth" are straight from past comics. They're designations given to Plas and/or Ralph Dibny that I remember in my comic-reading experience. Also: "Pliable Policeman".

The alliterative pairings with synonyms for "sad", though? Those were all me.
