The Best Stuff In Comics: 8-24-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best cardboard box fort.

There may be some teeny tiny spoilers below.


Best Poetic Description of Having to Fight Crime

The first story in this issue dealt with a married Daredevil and Karen Page. She suspects he's having an affair (with Typhoid Mary). It's almost as if he's making excuses about having to go out. He's very poetic about it.

Best Reason for a Dinosaur Attack

You would think a dinosaur attack would lead to nothing but bad things. If you watched Jurassic World, you know some good can come out of one. In the second story in this issue, we see how a dinosaur attack can be good for Iron Fist and Misty Knight.

Jimmy decides it's finally time to call Superman. He then realizes his signal watch is gone. Turns out Riddler swiped it. It's bad news for Riddler when he checks it out later.

Best Conversation Between a God and a God's God

This is sort of a who created who thing. Did the gods create those to worship them or did the people worshipping create the gods. But it's Loki at his finest and a bummer we have to say goodbye to this series.

Best Fitting Homage Scene

I'm sure everyone will recognize the scene. It makes sense with the different domains on Battleworld. Even though we've seen this moment recreated many many times, I still enjoy seeing it done.

Best Things to Make a Story Better

Howard the Human is in a bit of a jam. He owes some people money and has a few people threatening his life. He's describing his tale of the events that lead up to where we came in to other members in a bar and it's pointed out what makes a story even better.

A blind mouse and ninja monkeys. Doesn't that make you want to hear the whole story?


Strangest Declaration

We've seen and heard many weird sayings and exclamations from comic book characters. "Great Caesar's Ghost!" "Imperius Rex!" "By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth!" In DOOMED this week, we hear a strange on about Mars.

Best Crazy Map

I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time we've seen a wacky map like this in this series. Thank goodness we don't have to try to follow one like this. I'm not sure if I'd want to go to 'Weirdworld.'

Best Reason Cyborg Shouldn't Grow a Mustache

Cyborg is excited when he gets a few bits of hair growing on his face. Raven doesn't quite agree and pretty much the H.I.V.E. F.I.V.E. agree with her. Raven tries telling him to shave and it looks like he should've listened.

Best Reason Not to Eat an Entire Bag of Candy

Hopefully you would never eat an entire bag of candy. You sure don't want this to happen.

Best Saying to Have Embroidered on a Wall Decoration Thingy

Deadpool and Rocket have teamed up. Long story. They end up in one of Cable's places and head for his weapons cache. Looks like Deadpool made a wrong turn and they ended up in wardrobe. Notice the saying on the wall.
