Storm and Jean Grey of the X-Men have dealt with all kinds of threats, from criminal gangs to terrorists to giant robots to space aliens. Tonight they deal with their worst challenge yet…a group of drunken Florida rednecks. It’s a big step down in their careers.
“Power Punch” round 8
The Battlefield: Adventures Of The X-Men #11 (Marvel; February, 1997) “Tower Of Despair”
The Promoters: Ralph Macchio (writer), Yancey Labat (penciler), Ralph Cabrera (inker), Paul Becton, colorist, & Michael Higgins (letterer)
Transported to the Florida Everglades, near the town of Citrisville, Jean and Storm are a few states from home when they make some new…friends.
Of course, these are just nitwits with firearms so it’s not like this will take long.
Actually she does power up, which scares the three left standing, which draws in the Man-Thing, but burning by touch isn’t punching, and two of them went down with that. And it’s the only punching that came up in this week’s comic reviews. Batgirl’s more of a kicking person.
