Friday Night Fights: Assassin - Round 12: The Forecast Calls For Pain!
There's an old saying that goes: "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody ever posts a Friday Night Fights entry about it."
Well, uh, maybe that's not how it goes. Just in case, though, I'm posting this entry featuring the debut of Mark Mardon aka the Weather Wizard, longtime member of the Flash's Rogues Gallery who has also fought Superman and the Nestle Quik Bunny. Our meteorological melee comes from Flash#110, written by John Broome, drawn by the recently-deceased Carmine Infantino, and inked by Murphy Anderson and Joe Giella.
Synopsis: The Flash has just foiled the Weather Wizard's scheme to take revenge on the policeman who arrested him, so the Wizard decides to take his revenge on Flash instead. Which leads to tonight's atmospheric altercation.
I can picture the Weather Wizard's opening pickup line: "Hey, babe, want to see my Weather Stick?"
Let's see how ol' Wiz handles his....Weather Stick.
Gee, that went well!
But before the Wizard has any other bright ideas, the Scarlet Speedster comes up with one of his own.
Ouch, that's going to leave a....Mark!
Our fight music for tonight's weather walloping comes from Crowded House.
