This is an old segment that @k4tzm4n use to run back when he was a staff member. However me and my friends who run battle of the week were talking and we decided to bring this segment back. Basically in this segment we pick the best battles we saw in comics and than we will post the highlights of these fight. I will not upload the full fights in respect to the scan rule.
Marvel Generations: Phoenix & Jean Grey #1
Our first battle show cases the fight between the young Jean Grey and Phoenix against Terrax and Galactus! Phoenix senses a disturbance on another planet, and carries young Jean with her, where she sees galactus and terrax terrorizing a planet! Old Jean quickly powers up to her Phoenix state and disposes of Terrax rather quickly.
At first galactus pays no attention to the two Jeans, however after seeing his herald beg for mercy galactus enters the fight. He seems to do some damage to pheonix and tanks her blast to rather easily:
Afterwards Phoenix tries to stand up to Big G and demands Galactus to satisfy his hunger elsewhere. However Galactus responds with telling Phoenix to not make demands of him and begins siphoning energy from the phoenix force. Young Jean watches and realizes that galactus could kill the phoenix, and if that were to happen time would shatter. So she draws energy from the surrounding planet, from terrax, the phoenix force, and galactus himself and blasts him with an amped TK blast which sends galactus toppling!
However even as a result of this amped TK blast Galactus seems to shrug the blast off. He chooses to leave the planet on account of being impressed.
Amazing Spider-man #31
The next battle will showcase some highlights of the recent fight with the new superior Doctor Octopus and Spider-Man! For those that don't know doctor octopus is back in a cloned body of spider-man and has joined Hydra, and wants control of Parker industries back! Not only does he now possess the powers of spider-man and has his arms back but he also has some more new toys! Such as an EMP based on the one Norman Osborn used a few issues back with some modifications. Not only will this EMP disable Peter's technology but it will destroy his armor!
Peter was wearing his classic spider-man costume underneath! Now I personally kind of liked the idea of Peter using tech more and his armor was cool for a bit...But its amazing seeing Peter's classic costume! This one scene really made the issue for me. I gotta admit--despite my bordom/fatigue win Dan Slotts Spider-man--this was a very cool scene. Peter makes note that he doesn't need his fancy tech to beat Ock and this is the only costume he needs. Peter ends up using that device you see him holding in his hands to hack Otto's arms resulting in Otto literally beating himself up:
However Peter's victory on Otto did not come without cost. What did Peter lose? Read the issue and find out.
Transformers: Till All Are One #12
This next fight will be between Windblade & Starscream VS Vigilem. Now I will be honest I don't really read this series so I have little idea what is actually happening. From what I understand Vigilem entered the mind of windblade and they are having a battle inside her mind. Vigilem is trying to reformat Windblades mind.
However Vigilem asks how long windblade will remain in control of her mind. However as Vigilem is speaking he gets shot from behind and its revealed that star scream has also entered windblades mind to assist her:
However Vigilem changes his appearance to look like megatron and things don't look so good for star scream:
What happens next? You should probably read the issue to find out.
