The Best Stuff In Comics: 4-13-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best vegetable garden.

We're back! This used to be a VIDEO FEATURE for over one hundred episodes. We've changed the format to a text version as most seem to prefer it this way.

Each week we take a look at the other Best Stuff you might have missed...this week.

CONVERGENCE: BATGIRL #1

Best Reason for a Zipper on your Super-Suit

This is something I've brought up many many times. When do superheroes go to the bathroom? This is something Stephanie Brown has to deal with. Having a super-suit doesn't always mean super-convenience.

ANGELA: ASGARD’S ASSASSIN #5

Best 80s Song Reference

Star-Lord is a child of the 80s (somehow). While getting wrapped up in Angela's scheme of kidnapping her half-sister, they have to make a trip to Heven. Of course Star-Lord makes a reference some might not quite get.

HULK #14

Best Reason Deadpool Can’t Die In This Issue

Deadpool has been helping out Hulk Doc Green. He gets in a bit of a mess himself. Could this be the end for Deadpool? Of course not. This week's issue of DEADPOOL is his death issue. It says so on the cover.

CONVERGENCE: BATMAN AND ROBIN #1

Best Corny Villain Line to Remind You of ‘Batman & Robin

Ugh. It's best if we all try to forget those Mr. Freeze lines.

No Caption Provided

ALL-NEW HAWKEYE #2

Best Codename Back Story

How did Clint Barton get the name "Hawkeye"? It's not really a huge secret. We know he has a good eye and is really good at shooting things with an arrow. In this week's flashback portion, we see the birth of the nickname when he returns a dropped item.

ANT-MAN #4

Best Group for Former Super-Villains

Not all super-villains wish to continue the same life of constant defeats. For many, they don't have any other options. It turns out there is an group that can help them.

No Caption Provided

AVENGERS WORLD #19

Best ‘The Warriors’ Reference

Did you ever see The Warriors? Hopefully you've seen it. Sunspot has seen it. Sadly, not everyone around him has and the reference falls a little flat.

No Caption Provided

CONVERGENCE: JUSTICE LEAGUE #1

Best Sound for Teleporting

And here we all thought Nightcrawler held the trademark on the teleporting sound FX. Apparently not. Zatanna pops into the hospital and we see that familiar sound appear.

No Caption Provided

S.H.I.E.L.D. #4

Best Invisible Jet

Wonder Woman's the only one with an Invisible Jet, right? Not really. If a DC character can borrow from the Marvel Universe, why not the other way around as well. With the revelation that Sue Richards, the Invisible Woman, has gone on the occasional S.H.I.E.L.D. missions, she does her part to make an aircraft easily be able to fly through the city.

No Caption Provided

DARTH VADER #4

Best Reason Not to Program Droids with Sarcasm

I think pretty much everyone that has watched the Star Wars movies would love to have a droid or two for themselves. It seems not all are programmed the same way. A droid with sarcasm? That seems dangerous, especially around Darth Vader.

No Caption Provided

Best use of an Invisible Force Field

This was a close one this week. Sue Richards almost won by using a fore field while performing open heart surgery (seriously, in SHIELD #4). But Vader isn't just making an invisible force field, he's using the Force to do so without even flinching.

No Caption Provided

HOWARD THE DUCK #2

Best Alternative to Comic-Con

We all know getting into San Diego Comic-Con can be pretty difficult. Even if you can get a ticket, there's still the hotel situation to deal with. What we see in this week's HOWARD THE DUCK might actually be just a little bit easier to go to---CosmoCon.

No Caption Provided

DEADPOOL #250 (Issue #45)

Best Worst Corny Line

I like a good corny pun as much, if not more, than the next person. The Thing has had a rough day. He's hungry. Finally getting a chance to eat, he just can't help himself but utter a variation to his famous catchphrase.

No Caption Provided

That's it this week. Let us know in the comments below what other Best Stuff you dug this past week. Thanks to @Jawshco for his suggestions. If you want to participate or felt we missed some other Best Stuff, you can @reply me on Twitter at @GManFromHeck by Saturdays using the hashtag #BestStuffInComics. We'll give you a shout out and I'll think you're pretty groovy.

Be sure to always look for the best stuff and always be sure to chill out if you think of quoting Arnold Schwarzenegger's lines from Batman & Robin.

@syncig: No it did not. It's actually a pretty good comic and the art is pretty good in most of it. Not all, but most.

I hope the guy from that Dax Moon poster in Howard the Duck gets his own book!

I'd love to watch "Symbiote Makeover" and "Brood, where's my car?"

Larroca used to be my favorite but at some point in his Iron Man run the style changed and I just haven't been able to enjoy his work since.

Still can't figure out why Sue would want to work for an outfit as dirty as SHIELD.

Is that also why a ninja turtle is there with a red Savage Dragon coming to chat with him at his booth?

The fact that even THE BATMAN wets his pants is inspiring. He is human!!
