A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 156
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today, we look at Tom DeFalco and Ron Wilson’s famous “boxing” Annual of Marvel Two-in-One.
Marvel Two-in-One Annual #7 was produced by DeFalco and Wilson and it told the tale of the Elder of the Universe known as the Champion, who showed up on Earth to challenge the most powerful heroes on the planet to box him. If they all lose, he will destroy the Earth.
Here, DeFalco chose to highlight a difference between Thing and the other, more powerful heroes like Thor and the Hulk. The Thing actually knew how to BOX.
And DeFalco and Wilson handled the boxing scenes beautifully, all introduced by a wonderful panel by Wilson below…
Then the Thing enters the ring, as the last hope of the Earth…
The fight has not gone well, but the Thing has managed to stay in the ring, which all the other heroes could not do. And then we get the ending of the fight…
That sure is the Thing to the tee!
Good work by the creators.
“The” moment is probably the bit where he drags himself across the ground to say he’ll never give up.
