Friday Night Fights: The Deadly Mantis!

Well, the bad news is: It’s February. The worst month of the year. Luckily, it’s also the shortest, but that means you get a maximum amount of horribleness packed into each and every day. And the good news is: Well, there is no good news. I mean, it’s February.

But we can take a little comfort in the fact that it’s Friday, and that means the weekend, and that means FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS!

Our fight today comes from February 1989’s Silver Surfer #20 by Steve Englehart and Ron Lim, in which Mantis shows up somewhere, jumps out of a plane, and kicks the carp out of two random security guards.

One may ask why Mantis felt the need to beat up cops who probably had a good reason to ask why a green woman had just jumped out of a plane. Maybe they want her to disembark through the terminal, like a normal passenger. Maybe they wanted to make sure she remembered to go pick up her luggage. Maybe they like green women in skimpy clothing. But who doesn’t, right?

But both of them learned a valuable lesson: February is a horrible, horrible month.

    I prefer blue-skinned, actually. It’s my favorite color. 🙂
