Friday Night Fights: Gene - Round 2: Hitting The Bullseye!

After missing last week's opening round of Friday Night Fights: Gene due to some work issues, I'm entering this bout swinging with a devil-may-care entry that hits the target, courtesy of Daredevil #169 by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson.

Synopsis: Bullseye has a brain tumor that makes him see everyday people he encounters as Daredevil, leading him to start killing those everyday people. He's about to do exactly that to two guys he kidnapped from a movie theater when the real DD intervenes.

And it's on!

To paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld: Oh, THIS should go well.

And here Matt has a life-saving brainstorm.

Not so fast, DD: You won the physical victory. Now let's see if you also score the moral victory.

And Matt is 2-for-2!

Friday Night Fights “Better Cal Saúl” Prize Fight: Cyber-Tag!

Our host Spacebooger has arranged a special prize fight round called FNF: “Better Cal Saúl!”. This round has one special rule: Every fight should have another fighter, other than the one from the first panel, get “called” in and deliver the KO

I've decided to answer the "call" with this cybernetic scuffle from The New Titans #59, by Marv Wolfman, George Perez, Tom Grummett, and Bob McLeod. Synopsis: After a series of attacks by the Wildebeest, the Titans discovered their beastial attacker was actually a disguised and mind-controlled Victor Stone (aka Cyborg). They deduce that the real Wildebeest was one of the S.T.A.R. Labs scientists assigned to maintain Vic's cybernetic body and implanted the controlling device inside him, so they use the same device to track the villain back to his home. Cyborg (who will be serving tonight's round as the aforementioned "fighter from the first panel") arrives first.

Which fighter will be "called in" to save Vic now? 




No, it's...
