For this, the final Prize Fight round of this session of Friday Night Fights, Spacebooger has commanded that we feature a fight between two arch enemies.
Well, why not go back to the very beginning, eh? Batman and the Joker? Pshaw--50 years too late. Lex and Superman? Amateurs.
No, we're going back to the very debut of the concept of arch enemies in Western literature. (Don't qubble--it's Friday Night Fights, not Friday Night Algonquin Round Table...)
Yes, I'm talking Holmes and Moriarty.
We're in Switzerland, at Reichenbach Falls. And after Holmes has smashed Moriarty's criminal empire, the Napoleon Of Crime shows up, seeking revenge:
Well, that's it for Holmes, right?
Nope. Because Sherlock Holmes was a master of Street Fighter!!
Sherlock wins--no shit!!
Spacebooger bet all his rent money on Moriarty winning that fight, too...
Western literature's very first retcon was brought to us by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as adapted by "Mr. Dennis J. O'Neil & E.R. Cruz, Esquires" in DC's Sherlock Holmes #1 (1975).
Look, there's money on this, and there's stuff I want to buy on Amazon. Therefore, it's only logical that you vote for me, no? So vote!!
