Friday Night Fights: Boogaloo - Round 11: Harbinger Of Doom!

After last week's round of old-school robot-smashing, I thought I'd make this week's round of Friday Night Fights: Boogaloo a little more...cerebral, courtesy of Harbinger#5, written by Joshua Dysart and illustrated by Khari Evans and Matthew Clark. Synopsis: Escaped mental patient Peter Stanchek, an immensely powerful psionic, had taken the offer of an also-immensely-powerful psionic named Toyo Harada to join the Harbinger Foundation, an institute that trains psiots. In exchange for Peter's cooperation, Harada offered to take care of Peter's lifelong junkie friend Joe. Unfortunately, Harada's method for "taking care of" Joe really meant killing him with a forced overdose. Now, after Peter has found out Joe's true fate, he heads back to the foundation to confront Harada and the Foundation students.

Hmmm....a room with a weakened ceiling. Now how can a man with telekinetic powers possibly exploit that?

Well, one way is by....

....bringing the roof down!
