Friday Night Fights: Ghost - Round 2: The Bigger They Are....

Tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Ghost features a bit of a "David vs. Goliath" situation. This imbalanced embroglio comes from Wonder Woman#175, written and drawn by Phil Jiminez and inked by Andy Lanning(?). Synopsis: Circe has cast a spell that has transported every male superhero and villain on Earth to New York City and transformed them into strange creatures. She has also brought in an army of supervillainesses who end up either (a) hunting the transformed men, or (b) generally rampaging and looting across the city. Circe's archenemy Wonder Woman, in turn, has assembled a team of superheroines to rescue the men and restore order. (It's a contrived premise, but the story is a lot of big dumb fun nonetheless.)

A few of those heroines have just run up against a very BIG problem.

The girl with the plan is none other than Cassie Sandsmark aka Wonder Girl.

What is Cassie's plan? Let's take a look.

Look, that's Monster Girl from the 90's series Young Heroes In Love alongside Empress from Young Justice. The woman being clocked is The Sylph, whose chief weapon is....lots of fabric. Three fun characters whom the Nu52 ran out of continuity.

Ok, back to Cassie.

She's kind of got a point, Giganta. You should've seen that coming from a mile away. Especially since a mile away is significantly less distant at your size.


Tonight's fight music by Jimmy Cliff is also about hard falling.
