Every week, we take a look at some of the most bizarre, exciting, and downright unique things to happen in comics. Check out our choices of the strange and wacky things that shouldn't be overlooked from this week's releases.

There may be some tiny spoilers ahead.

Old Man Logan #7

Best SNIKT! Moment

Obviously, any "SNIKT!" moment is going to come from Old Man Logan or Wolverine; however, we haven't seen something this epic in quite a while. Logan is fighting Lady Deathstrike and decides that the best way to deal with her is by cutting off her hands.

Batman: Rebirth #1

Best (and Most Disgusting) Reinvention of a Character

Calendar Man was a bit of a joke villain in the large gallery of Batman rogues. He was literally reborn this week, as the reader learns that he rapidly ages with each season and molts his body every spring as a young man.

Civil War II #1

Most Powerful Punch

Thanos did not hold back in Civil War II this week. In a recap from the Free Comic Book Day Civil War issue, he punched War Machine so hard that his fist went right through his stomach. Rest in piece, James Rhodes.

Deadpool #13

Best Run DMC Reference

Deadpool is known for saying some outlandish things in his comics. This week, he decides to quote a Run DMC song while offering some help.

Best Team Up That Fans Have Been Clamoring For

Throughout the New 52 at DC Comics, Green Arrow and Black Canary's relationship was nullified. Now, in Rebirth, they've teamed up and are kicking butt together again.

Spider-Women: Omega

Most '90s Moment

No Caption Provided

Spider-Gwen gets herself a bunch of guns, pouches, and a "take no prisoners" attitude. The only way to make this any more '90s would be to give her an action figure based on that panel.

Batman Beyond #13

Most Shocking Return

In Batman Beyond, Terry McGinnis has been dead and Tim Drake is Batman. However, during a big reveal in this week's issue, Terry is alive and working on killing Batman.

Best Moment That Has Your Mind Wandering

Wolverine is covered in pheromones in order to lure Fin Fang Foom away from the SHIELD helicarrier. Iron Man lets her know that he's pretty good at sterilization and had to do it to a few rooms in the past.

Deadpool #13

Best Fake Cyrillic

No Caption Provided

Cyrillic is a writing system for parts of Eastern Europe and parts of Asia. A local social club uses it for their signage out front: The Red October. Wonder if Deadpool had to hunt for that place?

All-New, All-Different Avengers #10

Least Exciting Reaction to Visiting Space

Visiting space should be a really exciting thing. Kamala Khan seems really impressed in this week's issue of Avengers. However, Sam Alexander, who frequents space, was not at all.

All-New Wolverine #9

Best Homage Moment

No Caption Provided

Wolverine ends up in the stomach of Fin Fang Foom. When she is wading in the stomach acids, the panel pays tribute to a moment from Uncanny X-Men #132.
