The Best Stuff In Comics: 8-3-15

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

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 Commentary on Supervillains’ Accessories

Supervillains often have a gimmick. They often have some sort of costume or accessory that really defines who they are along with possibly having superpowers. Deadpool, while fighting Thunderball, asks him about his choices.

Best Multiple Costume Changes

This series is loosely following the events of the 1984 SECRET WARS series. Remember when Spider-Man tried using a device to get a new costume and it lead to him getting a crazed symbiote? Well, it turns out Deadpool got to it first. He gives himself (and readers) a little fashion show.

Best Alternate Reality Version of the Guardians of the Galaxy

During the current Secret Wars, on Battleworld, we're getting to visit other versions of characters and time periods. On the 1602 domain, we're introduced to the Guardians of the Galaxy characters.

Best Cameo: the Other Ghostbusters

Depending on how well you know your Ghostbusters history, you're probably aware there was another version besides the one most people recognize. As our villain in the issue unleashes his cerberus to seek out the Ghostbusters he's after, we see some other versions from other dimensions including one with a weird version of Tracy the Gorilla.

Best Reason to Work for an Evil Corporation

Clark, Lois, and Jimmy infiltrate an evil organization to figure out who is blackmailing Clark. As soon as they arrive, in disguise, free coffee is offered. Jimmy gets a caramel latte for free!

Best Cold-Hearted Moment

We know Natasha has some "red" in her ledger. While the world is about to end because of the Incursion Wave (from Secret Wars), we get to see some flashbacks to her past. There's a moment she needs to decide if she can finish the job and kill pretty much everyone. We won't show you who in this one but it was pretty gut-wrenching.

Best Ability to Prove You’re Batman

Batgirl is teaming up with the new Batman even though he's been ordered to arrest all the vigilantes. At the end of their team up, she points out there's still some things this Batman needs to work on.

Best Reason for Superheroes Not to Wear Boots With Laces

Batgirl finds herself teaming up with Huntress. Dick Grayson is there too but she's not supposed to see him since she doesn't know he's alive. While she notices one of her boots is untied, she misses out on seeing him run by.

S.H.I.E.L.D. #8

Best Distribution of Medicine

Mockingbird and Agent May have tracked down some bad people that are performing some surgical procedures to give superpowers to kids in order to sell them off. As the fight rages on and they become surrounded by uncontrolled patients, Mockingbird is able to get some drugs that could calm them down and administers it with style.

Best Fist Bump

Shazam and Hercules are fighting because, in this world, the fighting pretty much never ends. At one point, they do a fist bump.

Okay, so it wasn't really a fist bump. But it kind of looked like one, right?


Weirdest Interrogation

There's a string of murders going on. The Thors are looking for answers as one of their own was murdered. They even take it upon themselves to interrogate some Ultrons with force. Who would've thought punching a robot in the stomach area would get answers?

Best Dancing of a Merry Jig

Even though this series is focusing on the domains of Age of Ultron and Marvel Zombies, we do see the Punisher from the 1602 domain, dancing a merry jig.

It's too bad things don't really end well for him.

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 @inferiorego for their 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 tie your boots extra tight. Maybe you could even tie double knots to make sure you don't miss anything.
