Friday Night Fights--snell Learns To Follow The Rules Style!!

Let's dispel all questions--I screwed up.

Somehow, last week I missed the instruction that all Friday Night Fights were to include onomatopoeia.

No clever excuses, no deflecting. Bottom line--snell = suck.

But we more than make up for it this week!!

Long story short--well, there's no way to make this a short story. Suffice it to say, Mirror Master and Captain Boomerang have come to Gotham City to settle a "who is the better criminal" contest they're having. And this bizarre little tale involves boomerangs made out of mirrors, people hypnotized, people only pretending to be hypnotized, traps, traps within traps, and a broken Batsignal.

But for our purposes tonight, all we need to know is that it ends in a fisticuffs fracas with Batman and Robin and Harvey Bullock vs. Mirror Master vs. Captain Boomerang. And it goes a little something like this...

That enough onomatopoeia for you?

Spacebooger would like to note that this single Batman comic contain more Mirror Master and Captain Boomerang than 3 seasons of the CW Flash show...

No one asks why they have this showdown in Gotham of places in Detective Comics #555 (1985), by Jason Todd, Gene Colan and Bob Smith. Yes, I said Jason Todd. Don't believe me? Look:


OK, OK, it was part of some silly device where Jason was supposedly writing up the case as practice for composition class. The real author--so it's claimed--is Doug Moench.

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? Because I actually followed the rules this time, so I should be rewarded!! So go vote!!
