Our various fictions are full of devastating combat pairings:  Mal and Jayne.  Ultra Boy and Mon-El.  Joaquin and Manolo.  And nobody wants to cross swords, literally OR figuratively, with Black Canary and The Huntress.  But the real test of any fighting team is simple.  Are they more awesome than the One-Two Punch of V.I.N.Cent and B.O.B. going head-to-head with a literal army of automatons in a running battle through the U.S.S.

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
