Thus far no votes (much less wins) for me in the Friday Night Fights. Let’s see if my luck changes tonight. Because the Superman praise parade is flying high, and Metallo’s getting hit with it. And the titular helicopter

“Lights Out” round 10

The Battlefield: Superman Adventures #2 (DC Comics; 1996) “Be Careful What You Wish For…”

The Promoters: Scott McCloud (writer), Rick Burchett (penciler), Terry Austin (inker), Marie Severin (colorist), and Lois Buhalis (letterer)

At least Metallo doesn't have to worry about a headache.

The skies aren't that safe in Metropolis.

But as Metallo breaks out the Kryptonite, that last act proves to be his undoing. Superman is affected by Kryptonite.

"And I forgot my bungie cord!"

“And I forgot my bungee cord!”

Helicopters do not. Don’t worry, Superman saves the falling people. Metallo got away though.
