Welcome to Monday Matchup, where we select one random combination of cards included with the digital version of SUPERFIGHT to give you a small taste of the sort of ludicrous creatures you'll be arguing for and against. Today, we're highlighting an immensely powerful combination of cards prone to causing madness and unexpected lightning strikes: Cthulhu Riding A Pegasus While Wielding Mjolnir.
"The Thing cannot be described -- there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order."
That's how author H.P. Lovecraft described Cthulhu, his most famous, unknowable monstrosity, but for all the horrors that Lovecraft conjured up, he could never have imagined this combination of cards.
Not only is Ol' Tentacle Face armed with the inherent ability to cause unending madness and suffering among anyone foolish enough to even glance in its direction, but Cthulhu has also borrowed a page from Thor by equipping the legendary hammer Mjolnir! Now, it's not the insanity and extra-dimensional geometries you have to worry about, it's being struck by lightning and smashed into paste while you're busy trying to keep your mind from collapsing.
"I'll run from the madness and electrical death," you think, patting yourself on the back for such a clever idea. "I'll run fast and far!"
No sooner do you turn to flee, than Cthulhu is upon you again, poking you in the face with his tentacles and oozing all kinds of gross goo. There's nowhere to run from the majestic agility of Cthulhu's faithful Pegasus.
As you succumb to madness, the last thing you hear are thunderous hoofbeats giving way to the heavy beating of giant wings, and a guttural, mocking exclamantion: "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!"
