Friday Night Fights: Gene - Round 4: Cracking Under Pressure!

For tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Gene, I'm turning up the pressure - the water pressure, that is - for tonight's aquatic altercation, which comes to us courtesy of Justice League Of America #200, written by Gerry Conway and illustrated by George Perez and Brett Breeding.

Synopsis: The Appellax Aliens have been returned to life, thanks to post-hypnotic commands implanted onto the minds of the seven original Justice Leaguers who defeated them. Now that they are free, they resume battling amongst themselves with the final victor set to win complete control over our planet. Only one obstacle stands in their way: The JLA.

Here, one of the Appellaxians, the Glass-Man, makes his stand.

And if he were just facing Flash, this might work. Unfortunately, he also has Aquaman to contend with.

Hardcore, Sea King!

Tonight's fight music is this high-pressure cooker by Queen and David Bowie.
