Hi,
Would this expression sound idiomatic in the following situation?

Johnny is known for bullying other children at school. One day, however, one of the students stands up to him and gives him a beating.

Also, I've seen in some dictionaries that this phrase is marked as old-fashioned. Is it really? If so, what other expressions would be more modern? Would "What goes around, comes around" work?
