Everyone remembers this punch, from the brilliant Justice League #5 by Keith Giffen, JM DeMatteis, and the amazing Kevin Maguire. It was a moment Maguire could probably live off of, at cons, for the rest of his life….The issue went on sale June 2, 1987.
Even without the famous punch, this issue, which guest-stars The Creeper, is a solid superhero romp.
Everyone remembers Batman’s “one punch,” and it’s much emulated, like here where he takes down Constantine
Even Guy Gardner has referred to it with humor, like in this 2011 issue of Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors.
But nobody remembers Jim Aparo’s punch….
