The Best Stuff In Comics: 6-8-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best lawn sprinkler system.

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.


Best Married Couple

This is a moment many of us have been waiting for. Obviously the entire issue isn't going to be a complete happy-fest. But seeing Peter and Mary Jane married once again, even if just in this Secret Wars series, was pretty great.

Worstest New Super Pet

And by "worstest," we just might mean "best." Bizarro decided to get himself a pet when he came across a chupacabra. He decided to name it Colin.

Best Dream

Even Bizarro dreams. What does he dream about? We can't really explain it all so you'll just have to see for yourself.

Best Reminder to Avoid Stereotypes

Howard the Duck reminds Blade about making general stereotypes and how they can be insulting, harmful, and not cool.

Best Reason not to Send Inappropriate Pictures to Others

For some reason that I just don't understand, some people, mostly guys I guess, think it's okay to send inappropriate pictures to others. The better idea would be to not send any pics at all. So a note to guys, no one wants to see your junk. If they do, they'll ask.

Best ‘Strike a Pose’ Moment

One can only imagine what it must be like to hang out with Magik these days. When you're on a team full of people with cool powers and there's sometimes some brooding and flashy moments, it seems it would be hard to not just strike a pose.

Best Memory Flashback Scene

We've seen telepathic flashbacks in ALL-NEW X-MEN a few times now. I'm a sucker for them and love the fact that Karma gets her chance in the spotlight. It's just too bad this was only a one-page shot. It felt like half the page was missing. But it was still cool.

Best New “L.L.” Character

We know characters with the "L.L." initials in Superman comics usually mean they're a big deal. Some examples include Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Lana Lang, and Lori Lemaris. There's a new "L.L." character in ACTION COMICS so we'll have to keep an eye on her to see what's to become of Lee Lambert.

Best Wonder Toys Moment

This reminded me a little of that one scene in Batman from 1989. Leia looks pretty cool here too.

Best Sibling Foreshadowing

Leia thinks it'd be cool to have a sibling. Just hang on Leia!

Best Put Down

Luke got blinded and is trying to fight Boba Fett. There were some great moments during this fight.

Best Reason Not to try to Surround Midnighter

Midnighter is someone you don't want to mess around with. His new series is a great reminder why. When a group of terrorists invaded a restaurant he was in, they thought they were getting the upper hand on him.

If you want to see a tiny bit of his fight, check out this week's Best Battles in Comics.


Best Way to Stop a Charging Hippo the Hippo

In this issue, we get to see Hippo the Hippo. This isn't the first time. Someone asks the inevitable question and we get the only answer possible--the answer that absolutely has to be given.

Best Forensic Race

Batman is the best at everything, right? He's the world's greatest detective. But Barry Allen is a forensic dude as well. Wonder Woman commented they're putting aside their egos to work on this case but are they really?

Best *GASP* Scene

This might be considered a tiny spoiler. I'll save the context for another feature. But how great is shocking gasping moment?

"Say whaaaaaaaa...?"


Best Double Page Spread Battle

There were quite a few 'best' moments in this issue. This two-page spread was pretty great and will probably make you want to go get the issue if you haven't already.

Best Reason Being from the Future isn't a Big Deal

There really isn't anything for me to say here.

Honorable mention to the moment between Spider-Gwen and Iron Man.
