The dog ate my homework. And then I was abducted by aliens…

April 15, 2012

And then I found myself in Mexico without any ID. I was able to get back into the states but I was forced to work as a garden gnome salesman for a few weeks. I still have the rash and I can’t hear out of my left ear. But at least the yolks are still yellow.

So that’s why I’m handing in my homework a little late.

Girl Duality Assignment 1: “Put up your favorite animated fight of all time, then explain why.”

OK so I could probably just go with one or two battles that I remember from Dragon Ball Z but that doesn’t seem genuine to me. Sure there are a lot of moments where there were huge battles in Dragon Ball Z that I was crazy for when I was heavy into DBZ, but that’s what Dragon Ball Z was about… big battles. It would have been like saying I like Grilled Cheese cause it has Cheese in it. There is however another animated fight that for some reason always sticks out in the back of my head. And it doesn’t really have any epicness to it really.

The animated fight that sticks out in my head happened in the episode named “The Spot” of Spider-Man: The Animated Series.

From the Spider-Man: The Animated Series WIKI:

“Dr. Jonathon Ohnn was a brilliant scientist who created the Time Dilation Accelerator portal-making machine for Tony Stark….After they completed the machine, Ohnn was accidentally sucked into a portal, where numerous other portals were formed onto him, and he could create and recall the portals. Ohnn called himself the Spot and started stealing money to help fund his project go further.”

So yeah, I don’t know why this battle sticks out in my head. I guess I just love the idea of portals and teleportation. Spiderman and the Spot face off about 2 or 3 times in the episode. Its the battle where Spiderman finally figures out how to fight The Spot that I remember the most. Anyways, here it is:

This video starts with the battle. It only lasts like 10 seconds. If you want to watch the whole episode start with the video posted after this one.

OK so after watching that 10 second battle, I am not really sure why I remember it the most. Maybe its just the whole episode. If you want to watch the whole thing, just start with the below video.

EDIT: After digging around for images of the comic book version of this villain, I think the comic book seemed a bit cooler.
