It's that time of the week. Time to look at the latest edition of Best Battles in New Comics. Comics often feature big battles with superheroes fighting supervillains. Sometimes we even have superheroes fighting other superheroes. Get ready to cheer and possibly cringe at the brutal punches being thrown.

There will be some spoilers below (and some naughty words)!

No Caption Provided

LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #3

(By Justin Jordan, Tradd Moore, and Felipe Sobreiro)

Whenever there's an issue of LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE, you can pretty much assume you're going to see it here. As expected, things get crazy and over the top.

Things start out as Luther is trying to peacefully talk to an assassin and get him to see that killing isn't the answer. He obviously doesn't want to listen and turns his guns on Luther. Petra is up above so she shoots at the guy with a sniper rifle.

No Caption Provided

The thing is, this guy is good. He's really good. Just as the bullet is headed his way, he shoots in Petra's direction.

No Caption Provided

Her reaction is pretty classic. The guy's bullet manages to go through hers and heads her way. Uh oh.

The fight does continue between the guy and Luther. This guy isn't just about shooting. He has hand to hand skills as well and combines the two.

No Caption Provided

It's a good thing Luther can take quite a bit. The fight turns into a chase through a building. They head up and up until the guy jumps backwards through a building.

No Caption Provided

This isn't even the end. There's a lot more that you'll want to see. It doesn't end quite like you might think.

DEADLY CLASS #16

(By Rick Remender, Wes Craig, and Jordan Boyd)

Things are not going well for Marcus Lopez. Marcus has broken some serious rules at Kings Dominion School of the Deadly Arts. He's also turned on his friends. When another student, Viktor, gives him the ultimatum of turning in his friends to the headmaster or he'll turn them all in, Marcus has only one choice. He goes after Viktor to shut him up. He planned on taking him out during his nightly run but a mandatory surprise assembly calls them back to the school. Viktor plans on showering first so this still gives Marcus a chance.

No Caption Provided

Unfortunately, Viktor moved a little to grab the soap, causing Marcus to miss. He gets some good shots in on Marcus which causes him to drop the gun. But he still has a knife.

No Caption Provided

Viktor's a big dude but he knows when he's at a disadvantage. All he has to do is leave after Marcus slipped on the soap and regroup. Marcus manages to get up to take another shot.

No Caption Provided

Shooting the faculty is never a good thing.

And if you think he's in a bad situation now, you have no idea what's coming up next. It just keeps getting worse and worse.

BATMAN/SUPERMAN #24

(By Greg Pak, Ardian Syaf, Yildiray Cinar, Howard Porter, Dean White, and Beth Sotelo)

Superman and the new Batman are trying to retrieve a stolen artificial 'sun' that it's possession of a subterranean army. The problem is, it's about to go supernova. Also, Aquaman has been convinced to side with them against the evil mankind. That means it's up to a slightly depowered Superman to try to talk sense into him. Good luck.

No Caption Provided

At first, Aquaman is too enraged at how the seas are being poisoned. He plans on dealing with Superman while Ukur works on getting the sun out of the ocean. That's not good for Superman.

No Caption Provided

It seems Aquaman isn't necessarily as unreasonable as it may seem. He feels he can save the depowered Superman from Ukur and wants him to take a fall. Superman can't fully go along with this since he's not sure Aquaman realizes what's really at stake.

No Caption Provided

Can Superman keep this going? There's so much going on plus Batman is busy with his part.

No Caption Provided

Superman thinks about giving up. But this is Superman we're talking about. No way he gives up that easily. So you'll have to read the issue yourself to see what happens next.

**BONUS!!**

GIANT SIZE LITTLE AVX #4

(By Skottie Young and Jean-Francois Beaulieu)

There's been a lot of fighting going on here, as you can imagine. It's all been over some twins that arrived at Marville. Both Avengers and X-Men have been trying to win them over onto their team. Things just get more complicated when the Guardians of the Galaxy show up. If that wasn't enough, the Inhumans show up too. What this leads up to is four glorious pages showing one battle scene. Or, if you read it on the Marvel app, you can see it as one continuous image.

No Caption Provided

You really need to read all four issues.

No. He doesnt have his uniform anymore because it was destroyed one of the last times he used the Super flare.

So just how depowered is Superman if he is somehow still standing against Aquaman? A few issues ago he could only just take Gordan in the batsuit and now Aquaman? huge difference in powers there.

Aquaman knows Superman is much weaker and isnt hitting him as hard as he could. He is pleading with Superman to play along in his plan.

The Fortress of Solitude took his costume from him when he tried to go there for help. It's in the free eight page preview for either Action Comics or Superman if you want to look it up.

I wish Superman would have kept the sweet ass beard. The costume looked a little better when he had some sweet man scruff going on instead of his current five o'clock shadow.

I was kind of worried that they wouldn't include Legacy of Luther Strode. It's like every issue is just one huge fight. It's amazing.

I see a Gold Helmet Nova in there! XD

Awesome picks this week, maybe except for Supes getting mugged by Aquadude. Feeling confused on how to react on that.

That one part in Giant-Size AvX when Lil Ultron said "There are no strings on me". Such a fun book; glad it made Best Battles.

Superman's street costume might be a major change, but I'm still not feeling it.

@amendment50: I think it's a good change. The armored superman was cool but this makes sense. I mean he has such a simple name why not simplify his costume and dampen the powers. Now he is a super- MAN. Plus real men have beards lol

If you're at a school for assassins and you can't kill an unarmed naked guy with his back to you, using a gun and the element of surprise. Maybe you need to pay more attention in class...

Modern DC - We love heroes fighting heroes.

Modern Marvel - We also love heroes fighting heroes but we turn it into huge events (AvX, Axis, Civil War).

Modern Valiant - We too love heroes fighting heroes but turn it into four issue miniseries (Harbinger Wars, Unity vs XO)

It is kind of a comic book staple regardless of the company

Both are pretty good actually. But 1st picture Superman looks alike he is either having an orgasm or doing one of famous signature WTF faces that only Nicolas Cage can do.

@theblackhood: I am somewhat ashamed to say that I enjoyed Axis. Hahaha, But you are right it is an overused plot device.

I don't mind it if used in a story that makes sense like Unity vs Eternal Warrior in Book of Death.
