(A touch of context might help, as the person pummeled is Judge Fear, and his catch phrase is "Gaze into the Face of Fear!")

Copied from Warren Ellis's original post on scans_daily 1.0. I've been meaning to find an appropriate time to post this.

And not only that, the inspiration, it appears, for pretty much every fight scene he's ever written. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But I can certainly see both Midnighter and Jakita springing from this seed.

And just think. Before long, everyone would be doing it. Black Adam, Superboy ...

Oh yes. Though my favourite Judge Dredd moment is him saying he wears boots a size to small so he doesn't have the concentration to worry about all the stuff going on around him. It's chilling and perfect.

This scene inspired me to punch a bully in Kindergarten screaming this exact phrase.

The even better context is that anyone who DOES "Gaze into the face of Fear" dies of sheer terror within seconds... Judge Dredd barely seems to notice the effect and then... THIS! :)

Posted one day after you did. Coincidence? Or is Spoony stalking us?

As soon as I saw it was One Perfect Moment week, I had to check the archives to make sure this was already up.
