The Best Stuff In Comics: 6-22-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best flavor of potato chips.

This used to be a video series. It's not anymore. Each week we take a look at the other Best Stuff you might have missed...this week.

There may be some teeny tiny spoilers below.

ROBIN: SON OF BATMAN #1

Best Play on Words

In the first arc in BATMAN AND ROBIN, there was a character named Nobody. Looks like the legacy lives on. Looks like there's Nobody around.

MS. MARVEL #16

Best Description of a Broken Heart

Poor Kamala. For someone so young, a broken heart feels like the end of the world. Little does she realize the world actually is about to end...

PREZ #1

Best Crazy Idea to Feed the Hungry

This sounds like it could be a great idea. We're probably thinking more for our everyday lives when we randomly get a craving.

No Caption Provided

The guy proposing the idea here continues with further ideas in how to implement and enforce taco drones for the hungry.

OLD MAN LOGAN #2

Best Lightning Bolts

Leave it to Andrea Sorrentino and Marcelo Maiolo to depict some really cool lightning scenes. There's actually a couple of them in this issue.

Best Meta Nickname

Sometimes in movies, the title is actually spoken and it sounds a little weird. With the OLD MAN LOGAN stories, no one really calls him by that name. Except for now.

DOOMED #1

Weirdest Candidates for a Roommate

I am thankful I never had to take part in the roommate interview process. I can only imagine how meeting a bunch of unknown people you might actually considering living with could be. In this issue, we see some really interesting people applying to be their roommate. There's one in particular...

ARCHIE VS PREDATOR #3

Best Sign That Eating Junk Food Can Kill You

Junk food is not good for you. It's hard to resist. Some say all the chemicals and additives can kill you. If you know Jughead Jones, you know he can't resist eating.

DEADPOOL'S SECRET SECRET WAR #2

Best-Worst Superhero Pick Up Lines

Oh Deadpool. He almost never shuts up. Here, we see him talking to all the X-Men in a way only he can.

Best Tie-In Toy Accessory That Had Nothing To Do With The Original Series

If you were around when the first Secret Wars was released or if you saw the action figures that were made, you know about the shields they came with. They had different scenes you could see by moving the shield a little bit. You could change them as well. It did seem a little weird since none of the characters (except Captain America) used shields and also that they would have some random fighting scene if the characters/toys did decide to use them. But Cullen Bunn shows where they fit in with the series.

BLACK CANARY #1

Best Use of Your Surroundings During a Fight

Black Canary is an excellent fighter. She's currently singing in a band. Seems a little weird, right? But at each gig, a fight usually breaks out. At her latest one, some strange foes appeared and threatened everyone. Dinah uses her surroundings to her advantage in taking them out.

SINISTER SQUADRON #1

Most Interesting Trophies on Display

Seeing trophy rooms is always cool. We love to try to catch any easter eggs the artist may have hidden or just think about how the battle must have gone. In this issue, we see some familiar-looking trophies for the Squadron.

No Caption Provided

IVAR, TIMEWALKER #6

Best Battle Cry

When you're going to attack someone, it helps to have something to yell out. The battle cry can be an intimidating or distracting tactic to give you a slight advantage. Not sure if this one does either of those.

No Caption Provided


THORS #1

Best Forensics Expert

In THORS, we're seeing the "police force" on Battleworld. They're all different Thors. When a murder investigation is underway, the forensics expert is consulted. It happens to be Throg. You gotta love the little lab coat he wears.

HARLEY QUINN AND POWER GIRL #1

Best Thing Worse Than Ho-Bitz-Ez

Harley and Power Girl have found themselves on a weird world. They meet up with a pretty creepy guy. Then it gets worse.

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 @DJFanco and @GreggKatzman for their suggestions.

That Thor in Old Man Logan... is that BRB's girlfriend or is that supposed to be the Storm-Thor?

Edit: So who else noticed Lobdell adding himself to the 'roommates candidate' list?

Storm's lighting bolt was cooler than Beta Ray Shaniqua's.

Am I dumb for not seeing the Doomed one? Which is the weird person and who are they supposed to be?

@outside_85: Basically, she's supposed to be a mashup of Thor, Storm, and a female of Beta Ray's species. Hence, the lack of a nose.

I'm pretty sure it is supposed to be version of Thor where it's Ti Asha Ra instead of Bill.

Harley Quinn's Hunger Games reference in Injustice Year 4 #7 is funny as well.

@meatwadf: i believe it's supposed to be a female of beta ray bill's race.

@donmeca2020: Sorry. I guess I mean "Storm" in that she has the lightning stuff, but yeah, she's just a female member of his species, from what I've seen.

Is he "I was big in the 90s"?

well all the thunder gods can summon lightning and thunder, and of course Storm is a thunder god in that new thors series. i thought the same thing when i saw that character i figured off the top of my head she has to be a character like BRB people.

So Black Canary learned how to fight like Adam Lazarra from Taking Back Sunday? That's cool.

I wanna see the Martian Manhunter fight against a superb magical foe [like Modru], a reality warper [Monarch], and a matter manipulator [Gog].

I just want to know how he would perform against somebody with vast mystical, reality warping, and matter manipulating powerset.
