Friday Night Fights: Wildcat - Round 8: Thunder And Lightning!

For tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Wildcat, I'm bringing the Thunder...and the Lightning.

Tonight's thunderous throwdown comes from Superman#303, written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Curt Swan and Bob Oksner. Synopsis: Superman tries to stop two new villains named Lightning and Thunder from stealing some S.T.A.R. Labs meteorological equipment so their boss, the Whirlicane (just roll with it), can use it to unleash a massive monsoon squall in Metropolis (again, just roll with it).

(SPOILER: Lightning and Thunder are the same guy morphing into each persona.)

Thunder attacks and Big Blue demonstrates why Curt Swan is one of Superman's most revered artists.


Tonight's fight music is this tempestuous tuneage by Thin Lizzy.
