Friday Night Fights--Is That A Slide Rule In Your Aromor, Or Are You Just Glad To See Me Style?

For this week's Friday Night Fights, let's roll way, way back--to Iron Man's first fight with the dreaded Mandarin!!

It turns out that Tony was not at all ready for this fight, so the Mandarin has him worn down--roughed up, batteries running's not looking good for our hero!

In fact, Iron Man is in such bad shape, the mandarin has decided to forgo his rings, and deliver the killing blow with...KARATE!!

Really? A built-in slide rule?!?

There you go, folks--Tony Stark proves that science can beat martial arts!!!

Spacebooger would like to see Iron Man try and pull that crap with Shang-Chi...

Slide rules beat karate in Tales of Suspense #50 (1964), by Stan Lee and Don Heck.

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? Because Stan and Don had Tony beat the Mandarin with a frickin' slide rule!! So go and vote!!

...because Tony could miniaturise weapons, but not a computer... Oh, how Reed Richards must have laughed when he heard about this!
