Friday Night Fights: Sweet Mashup!

Well, it’s been another rough week. We’ve been abused by bosses, abused by coworkers, abused by customers, and it’s way past time for the weekend to get started and give us a chance to forget that abuse for another couple of days. So let’s get things started with… FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS!

And that’ll do it for this week. You ready for the weekend? Allons-y!

Tonight’s mighty battle comes courtesy of July 2003’s Exiles #27 by Chuck Austen, Clayton Henry, and Mark Morales, in which an alternate-reality Colossus reminds alternate-reality Luke Cage about the limits of bulletproof skin.


(Spacebooger don’t pull no punches either.)
