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)
Long story (read the review) but Metallo kidnaps Superman’s not-girlfriend and uses her as bait to trap Superman. Superman, arrives and says hello.
However, this wouldn’t be the best version of Metallo (seriously, the version on Superboy and Lois & Clark were pathetic right from the costume they made for the actors) if he went down that easily. So he gives Superman a trip of his own.
Another fist sends Superman flying upwards.
But as Metallo breaks out the Kryptonite, that last act proves to be his undoing. Superman is affected by Kryptonite.
Helicopters do not. Don’t worry, Superman saves the falling people. Metallo got away though.
