Friday Night Fights: Power Punch - Round 5: More Cowbell!
Tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Power Punch, we're getting a little....spiritual, courtesy of DC Comics Presents#24, written by Len Wein and superbly illustrated by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez.
Synopsis: Government scientist Alex Atley invented a device called the Cardialink to try to stabilize his erratic heart and extend his life by synching his heartbeat with Earth's pulse. Unfortunately, the link is flowing the wrong way, causing massive earthquakes. While Superman locates the half of the device at the Earth's core to shut it off, Deadman enters Atley's body to help him stave off dying, and gets some resistance from the Grim Reaper himself.
Ok, so technically, you may not be able to "knock out" Death, but that punch did drive him away.
Tonight's fight music is....what else could it be?
And as a special bonus, I give you another treat from that same issue: Garcia-Lopez' Dr. Jenet Klyburn.
