Friday Night Fights - Bat-Buster!

Pre-Identity Crisis, no-one in the DCU had a problem with heroes mind-wiping villains. Hell, they were doing it every other day it seemed like. As I wrote a while back, you, me and everyone else alive in 1978 has been mind-wiped!

Which brings me to this week's Friday Night Fight which Spacebooger has decreed should feature a villainous victory. Before the eventual turn-around and triumph of the Justice League against the Secret Society of Super-Villains, the villains managed to defeat the League and swap bodies with them - hence the mind-wiping at the end of the story.

During that defeat, though, Batman goes up against an enemy who he ranks as "one of the few who almost frighten" him.

Almost frightens him, you'll note.

Still that doesn't stop him delivering a hell of a punch to the rampaging villain. But wait, weren't the villains supposed to win?

Oooooh, that's got to hurt! Batman's down for the count with a giant fist to each side of his head!

Remember to head over to Spacebooger and vote in the poll for your favourite fight.

This bout of Blockbuster beating Batman originally appeared in Justice League of America #166, cover dated May 1979, written by Gerry Conway with art by Dick Dillin and Frank McLaughlin.
