Friday Night Fights: Mosquito - Prize Fight: Dennis Farina Style!
Welcome to tonight's Friday Night Fights: Mosquito Prize Fight! Our host Spacebooger has given us one special rule for tonight's fight: It must be a fight scene where the loser is either named after or is an insect/bug.
Ok, how about two losers named after insects/bugs? A husband-and-wife team, no less?
Tonight's insectoid embroglio takes place in the same comic as last week's Vision/Wonder Man fight, namely Avengers#158, written by Jim Shooter, Sal Buscema, and Pablo Marcos. Synopsis: A scientist named Frank Hall working in an isolated research community gains gravity-manipulation powers after an experiment gone wrong. He eventually seizes control of the community, dons a new costume, and rechristens himself Graviton, leading one of the other scientists to secretly summon the Avengers. The Avengers arrive to confront Graviton and....
....promptly get their butts kicked.
In addition to taking out Iron Man and the Scarlet Witch above, Graviton also immobilizes Captain America under his own shield and neutralizes the Vision. Who's left to take him on next?
But before Yellowjacket and Wasp can use their sting powers on Graviton, our weight-changing heavy uses his powers to....
......take a Number Two on our heroes!
Obviously, Graviton was inspired in his graphite usage by the late, great Dennis Farina.
However, as talented as the recently-deceased Mr. Farina was, he never recorded any musical albums, so the task of providing tonight's fight music will be taken up by Pulp.

...Well, let's just say that Spacebooger also knows his way around a Number 2.
