Friday Night Fights

Filed under: birds of prey, friday night fights, meme — Tom Bondurant @ 11:05 pm
This time around, it’s Ladies’ Night! Bahlactus commands that at least one combatant must be female … but hey, look what I just happened to pull from an unorganized stack:


That’s right, it’s the classic throwdown between Barbara “Call Me Batgirl” Gordon and Katarina “Spy Smasher” Armstrong!


The stakes? How about control of a little ad hoc group of superfolk no one dares call the Birds Of Prey?


“But Tom,” you say, “Babs is in that wheelchair for a reason!” Yes, and that’s why Manhunter zapped Spy Smasher in the leg.


Although really, I tend to think it’s so that Barbara wouldn’t hurt her too badly….

Naturally, the multi-page spread which follows this bout shows that none of Babs’ operatives will go with Spy Smasher under any circumstances — but this isn’t called “Friday Night Friendships,” now is it?
