Friday Night Fights: Boogaloo - Round 5: Frightwing!

For tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Boogaloo, I'm going to show you how an iconic hero handles being overcome by his greatest fears, courtesy of Nightwing#10 by Chuck Dixon, Scott McDaniel, and Karl Story. Synopsis: Inspector Dudley Soames has hired Jonathan Crane aka the Scarecrow to kill Nightwing. To achieve that end, Scarecrow doses our hero with a powerful dose of his fear gas which causes Dick Grayson to hallucinate a reality where he's married to Donna Troy (who's cheating on him with TV repairman Roy Harper), has a 9-to-5 job working for the Joker, lives next door to his more successful coworker Bruce Wayne, and has Jason Todd for his paperboy. At this point Dick is about ready to crack......

......Scarecrow's skull.

Tonight's fearsome fight music comes from Siouxsie And The Banshees.
