Amazing Spider-Man 356
Round Robin: The Sidekick's Revenge Part Four

Roll call:

spider-man, night thrasher
					moon knight, and the punisher

Night Thrasher, Spider-Man, Moon Knight, the Punisher. Nova has been captured by the bad guys. We won't see much of the Punisher this issue - he took same heavy hits previously and has to recover.

Night Thrasher is young and his blood is hot and it shows.

I would have wanted the next panel to be Night Thasher getting thrown out of the Moon Copter, you know, for laughs.

We come upon an organization called the Empire. They have a medical team doing cyborg enhancements on former Moon Knight sidekick Midnight. It's a brutal operation with no pain killers. The doctor comes off as cold and sadistic but here's the real surprise.

The doctor is Thunderball from the Wrecking Crew! He's a doctor!?

Continuing with the Empire's grisly activities we come upon a hapless Nova.

Normally I wouldn't show this, it's effectively a torture scene, but look at the machinery in the room. It's Mark Bagley doing Jack Kirby machinery.

Here's a great panel of Moon Knight's Moon Copter dodging an attack.

Midnight looks good in costume. . .


. . . but he's been the recipient of brutal surgeries. Look at the eyes, they give an indication of just how much trauma Midnight has been through.

Night Thasher and Moon Knight may not like each other much but they are an effective assault team.

Here's an example of the power play inside the Empire's upper levels.

The blood on the wall behind Midnight is really"persuasive".

Midnight has just "broken his leash" and declares himself leader of Empire.

Midnight in action!

He's extremely effective.

Until he meets Spidey.

Look at the fight sequence on this page. Smooth flow from one panel to another. Kudos to Mark Bagley

spider-man, midnight fight

Midnight's Cyborg enhancements are quite impressive. Not least is his ability to fly.

By the end of the issue, the Empire organization is on the run but they still have Nova.
