  • Lightning’s game of poker with Grandmaster. In order to win back Johnny Storm, Red Wolf and the entire planet, while already putting himself and ownership of the planet up for grabs, Lightning makes one last bet, in a Batman Gambit worthy of Jotaro Kujo's fight with Daniel J. D'Arby. If he loses this hand, then Grandmaster can erase the memory of every last one of Lighting's accomplishments, leaving him forever known as a D-List loser... but under the terms of the current game, that means that the Grandmaster would have to accept the same fate if he loses. Too terrified by the mere possibility of being known as a loser, Grandmaster folds, giving up a king high full house. And then Lightning deliciously rubs it in by admitting he doesn't play Poker, but just exploited the idea that the Grandmaster's ego wouldn't let him suffer that kind of loss whereas Lightning would accept such a defeat in the name of saving the world.
