Friday Night Fights - A Sting With The Tail

It's Friday and you know what that means - it's Fight Night once more, hosted by Spacebooger.

Pop quiz, hotshot: meta-human terrorists attack New York. What are you going to do?

Well, back in 1988, John Ostrander sent the Suicide Squad in to take care of them, in this case Manticore:

Wait, look at the right hand side of that last panel above - someone's grabbed hold of Manticore's tail.

It's Duchess from the Squad who slams Manticore to the floor time and again before . . .

. . . ripping his tail off . . .

. . . and beating him to death with it!

After which she simply tosses it aside and walks away. Never trust a woman from Apokolips, boys.

Now you know the drill: head over to Spacebooger by clicking the link or the picture below and vote for your favourite fight.

And if you have a comics blog, why not join in? We're always looking for new fighters.

This Manitcore-maiming first appeared in Suicide Squad #18, cover dated October 1988, written by John Ostrander with art by Luke McDonnell and Bob Lewis.
