Friday Night Fights: Punch!

Digging around in the Post's morgue, I came across a little series full of strangely chatty villains, bizarre accents, and excessive exclamations not seen since the heyday of Chris Claremont's run on the X-Men. Of course, no one can out-Claremont Claremont, so I present to you that X-Men-lite group from across the pond, Excalibur.

And who are the first bad-guys Excalibur goes up against? A gang of silvery "warwolves" who, inexplicably, speak with heavy British accents inspired by Mary Poppins. Eventually the heroes catch up to them, and Captain Britain punches one in the face so hard that he ends up smacking his pancreas.

What'd you think of that, Unreasonably Excited Kid?

Lucky for us, Bahlactus keeps it cool.

And while you're here, why don't you see what else is on the menu?
