Friday Night Fights: Powerful Punch - Prize Fight: The Final Card!

Tonight is the night for this bout's final prize fight, FNF: Powerful Punch. Our host Spacebooger has given us one rule: Every fight should have a crazy powerful punch resulting in a KO. Well, I'm not sure tonight exactly has a knockout per se, but I did check with our host and he said it would still count (you'll see why shortly).

Tonight's Tarot-based tussle comes from Justice League Of America #194 by Gerry Conway, George Perez, and John Beatty. Synopsis: Old Justice League villain Amos Fortune has learned how to magically animate tarot card images and has used them to attack six JLAers. Each attack has had an adverse effect on one of our heroes: Zatanna was blinded, Black Canary was turned mean, Flash and Green Lantern were both left depressed in different ways, and Elongated Man was turned...giddy. And Superman, apparently due to a hidden fear of death on his part, was transformed into an old man.

Which leads us to this epic showdown:

And now...the powerful Perez punch.

Well, technically, Supes' punch disintegrated Amos' Death avatar instead of knocking it out, but our humble host gave me his blessing.
