Friday Night Fights: Karate Kick - Round 10: Slick Thinking!
For the Friday Night Fights: Karate Kick bout, our host Spacebooger has instructed us that each fight should include a kick to any part of the opponent's body. Tonight's point of impact is the shoulders, courtesy of Superman: The Man Of Steel#33 by Louise Simonson, Jon Bodganove, and Dennis Janke. Synopsis; During the Reign Of The Superman story arc, Superman was restored to full power by a massive Engine City energy blast filtered through the Eradicator's body. Unfortunately, the blast did the job too well, causing our Man Of Tomorrow to continue absorbing too much power, causing his body to mutate and grow and leaving him with a dangerous (and rapidly increasing) level of power. The scientists at Cadmus concocted a way to have the Parasite absorb Superman's excess power at a rate where they can still keep him imprisoned and under control. However, Parasite absorbs too much of Superman's energy too quickly, causing him to break free. Luckily, he's gained Supes' strength and invulnerability but not his flight or vision powers. Un-luckily, he has gained Supes' super-speed, meaning he's fast enough to dodge anything Big Blue can throw at him from a distance.
Oh, no! The Man Of Steel will really have to use his brains to get out of this one.
Turns out he uses not only his brains, but also, per Spacebooger's special rule for this bout....
So how does this stop Parasite? Let the Cadmus scientists explain that.
Tonight's absorbing anthem is by Kiss.
