Friday Night Fights: Lights Out - Round 2: Growing Into You!
For tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Lights Out, I'm heading into the far-flung future, courtesy of Superboy#212 by Jim Shooter and Mike Grell.
Synopsis: Six Legion Of Super-Heroes tryouts who were previously rejected for having the same powers as an existing Legionnaire join forces to challenge their Legion counterparts to a fight to determine who deserves to be on the team. They proceed to beat up the Legionnaires before getting thrown out by Superboy. Mad at the Teen Of Steel's interference, the six Legionnaires challenge the rejects to a duel the next morning, during which time they win by pulling the classic Silver/Bronze Age trick of...switching opponents.
For tonight's round I'm focusing on my favorite of the rematch fights: Phantom Lad vs. Phantom Girl.
Wait, what's that at Phantom Girl's bell-bottomed feet? Could it be...?
Yes, it is!
The classic Shrinking Violet Growing Uppercut!
Tonight's fight music comes from Soul Asylum.
