Manic Monday Triple Overtime--Never Play Cards With The Phantom Stranger!

In which the Phantom Stranger socks a guy in the jaw, holds a gun on him, and cheats at poker!!

Hank Wheeler is the destined to be the world rodeo champion. Except that someone seems to be trying to jinx him--and maybe even kill him--by causing accidents and taunting him with the cards from Wild Bill Hicock's infamous "dead man's hand"--a full house, aces over eights!

Fortunately, Hank has friends in high places...

And so...






Smacking him in the jaw? Holding a gun on him? Stranger, you are so slumming it this story! Do Heaven approve of this?



He taught Batman that trick...

And so you now know why the Phantom Stranger isn't allowed in Las Vegas!!

From Adventure Comics #419 (1972)

Ha ha, awesome. First Spectre, now the Stranger? Those high-powered types sure like to get handsy every once and awhile don't they?

Yep, Doctor Strange used to bust out the kung-fu moves on occasion as well.
