Late for Martial Arts Week: Shang-Chi vs. Midnight Sun|
I'm late for Martial Arts Week. Here's a battle between Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung-Fu, and M'nai, the Midnight Sun. One will live. One will die and then get his body stolen and revived by Kree scientists to fight the Silver Surfer some years later.
( Brother vs. Brother )

Batman 416 [7 scans]|
Pretty sure this hasn't been posted.
This is Dick and Jason's very first meeting from Batman 416. Say hello to Discowing. This is also the issue when Bruce says he took on Jason because he missed Dick, which results in Dick giving Jason his old costume (how many of these things does he have?!) in a sweet moment at the end, which I included.
Best moment imho: Dick descending on a bunch of bad guys saying ( My name's Nightwing! I may not be the gent you were expecting but let me assure you , like him, I'm the stuff of nightmares. )
Credits: Jim Starlin (plot, script); Jim Aparo (pencils); Mike DeCarlo (inks); Adrienne Roy (colors); Agustin Mas (letters); Dennis O'Neil (edits)

Women in Dumpsters: Batman and Jason as Robin|
Batman #414, #421, #422; 7 scans from each issue, plus the cover.
These three issues form a bigger story arc. The basic plot is such: there's been a series of killings of young women in Gotham, and Batman is searching the murderer. There are a few headdesky plot points, but don't let that drive you away: it's a very good story. #422 especially is wonderfully constructed, but the rest is nonetheless interesting on its own.
I'm posting it because it's an arc than ran during Jason's period as Robin, and though Jason only appears in #422, the story deals with some themes that are inherently linked to his character. Emotional involvement, anger issues, the difference between what is “just” and what is legal, attitude toward women-as-victims, all of which are expanded upon. My comments regarding how the action relates to Jason's character are in italics.
Batman #422 is Jason's last appearance before Garzonas, in Batman #424.
