Best Battles in New Comics: 5/22/15

This week, we're featuring fights from SECRET WARS BATTLEWORLD #1, ARCHIE VS PREDATOR #2, and AVENGERS WORLD #21.

It's that time of the week. Time to look at the latest edition of Best Battles in New Comics. Comics often feature big battles with superheroes fighting supervillains. Sometimes we even have superheroes fighting other superheroes. Get ready to cheer and possibly cringe at the brutal punches being thrown.

There were so many good fights this week. It was tough to narrow it down to just three...


With Secret Wars underway, the new Battleworld is a mix of different versions of characters in separate regions all ruled by one person/god. What we find here is Doctor Strange has attached his soul to Punisher for a certain reason. Punisher has been crossing borders and has a few familiar yet different character chasing him.

The Four have been sent to bring him in. Punisher knows what that means. He's also not one to go without a fight. Add in Doctor Strange, we have a whole new sort of Punisher on our hands.

Apparently Frank Castle is a Jon Bon Jovi fan.

When Hulk takes his shot at Punisher, Frank might feel a little bad but still does the only thing he can.

It looks like Frank's handling the situation pretty well. There is still Ghost Rider and Wolverine to deal with.

You'll want to read the issue yourself to see how this fight goes. The fight might not be exactly as you think it would.


The first issue did deliver some deaths as a Predator now has made its way to Riverdale. While the gang witnesses an extremely brutal killing right in front of them, they try to get to safety. Betty tells Veronica she thinks she knows what's going on and who could help--Sabrina Spellman.

Unfortunately, things go really really badly for Sabrina.

That's bad but maybe not completely fatal, right? She's a witch. Maybe she could come up with a spell to help with this wound.

Nope. She won't get that opportunity.

Poor Sabrina. Looks like loyal Salem won't just stand around for this. Remember, he used to be a warlock himself. But then, he has been banished to the form of a cat.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are other deaths throughout the issue. We are talking about a Predator.


I'll be honest, this might not have been one of the absolute biggest battles this week. It is one that's been long overdue and one we've been itching to see. With Namor betraying the Illuminati and working with the Cabal, we see him start to turn the tables on them.

Who would dare stand up to Thanos?

Namor's tough. But this is Thanos we're talking about.

The fight quickly comes to an end. Namor didn't really have a chance in this situation.

Is this the end for Namor?

Why is he smiling? We'd tell you but we're out of time!
