Favorite Panel Friday: And it has a Nazi in it!

With Friday Night Fights on hiatus for one more week, it seems like a good time to bring back our old friend, Favorite Panel Friday!

This week's panel comes from Captain America #50, in which Bucky Barnes reminisces about past birthdays while dodging mini heat-seeking missiles. Believe it or not, my favorite scene comes from his memories of hanging out behind enemy lines with Captain America, the original Human Torch and Toro during World War II. Toro just wants to do something nice for Bucky's birthday, even if they are deep in German territory, but that stick-in-the-mud Steve Rogers just has to spoil everything.

And just like that, Ed Brubaker and Luke Ross totally endear Toro to me with a great little character moment.

Oh, and then the Nazis show up.

Don't forget to check out the next theme for Friday Night Fights at 6pm.
Unfortunately the theme does not involve Cake. Poor Bucky.

Hmmm ... I sense a lot of Dazzler and Vibe in the future!
