Friday Night Fights--Dispersing Into The Ocean Style!!

A long 'un but a good 'un tonight, kiddies.

Spacebooger has declared that this week's Prize Fight for Friday Night Fights must feature "a fight where the loser gives up before getting beaten too badly," a la Roberto Duran.

Well, I've got your "no más" for you.

Crusher Creel, just recovered from his last bout with the Hulk, has decided he's had it with America. He's going to take a boat to South America, where "they don't have no super-heroes" and he can be "the biggest sonovagun without getting stomped all the time."

But along the way, he robs a store, kidnaps a clerk, busts up a restaurant, and attracts the attention of the Avengers. So... 


Iron Man joins the fray, but...


Geez, tough day, Creel.

No más, indeed.

Spacebooger wants to know why we've never had the Absorbing Man/Super-Adaptoid story that America has been demanding...

Crusher Creel gets crushed in Avengers #184 (1979), by David Michelinie, John Byrne, and inked by "D. Hands" (Marvel's code-name for "diverse hands," with contributing inkers probably including Joe Rubinstein, Terry Austin, Al Gordon, Klaus Janson, and others....)

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? Money is on the line, and papa needs a brand new pair of shoes. So go and VOTE!!

Love love love Byrne's art from this period.

I've always wondered if the Avengers or X-Men or whomever...ever bothered to write down some little statistics or factoids about their foes?

Might help the next time they fight. I remember Thor swung a cardboard replica of Mjollnir at Creel once, and turned him into...cardboard.
