Redefining "Tiger Beat"

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...


From Power Man and Iron Fist #55. These guys have got to meet Golden Age Batman.

More Unrestrained Violence:
| Badass Panels: Ode to Punching |
| Batman: Master of the Chin-Check |
| Rule Number One For Successful Barbarian Living |
| Attention Criminals! |

This becomes even better if we entrepret the 2nd panel as Luke saying "Sweet, sister!", implying that this is about to become the greatest moment of his life.

Is that really just a tiger? Look at the face on it. It looks like a gargoyle. It's only got three toes on each foot. Seems suspicious to me.
Is Danny wearing a fuschia suit to provoke bullies into calling him a sissy, so he can beat them up?

Danny Rand's tiger restraining skills are second to none. It's a fact.

Ooohh! Tiger punching! Like cow tipping but more extreme! Seriously, PETA is going to be all over those guys.

I like that Luke Cage used to wear his sweet threads that were his costume ALL THE TIME.

PS - Yellow shirt with v-neck and flair coller, tiara, and chain belt = costume

Rocking a black T and a skull cap - NOT A COSTUME

...sorry, I'm very touchy about Power Man.

"...sorry, I'm very touchy about Power Man."

I'm right there with you, brutha. The tiara and the "Sweet Christmas!" faux-jive might have been intended to be stereotypical, but they missed the mark so far as to make Power Man a thing unto himself. Turning him into each successive decade's stereotypical badass black guy only diluted the initial appeal of the character.

I think it bears mentioning that this all happened in an attempt to steal the Fantasticar from an car show by a guy whose "power" involved wearing a metal helmet and running into people.

These guys were trying to be the next big Vegas act with this one, weren't they? Power Fist's suit sure would speak to that fact (wait a minute, so would Cage's black power getup.)

And that, Cassino, is what makes it great.

I love about Power Man and Iron Fist! What I love most is that they're such a great buddy duo, but such a lousy actual team. I mean, they're basically the male models of the Marvel Universe. Shouldn't the guy with steel-hard skin actually tackle the tiger and let the guy whose fist is like unto a thing of iron punch it?
