Each week we take a look at the other Best Stuff you might have missed....
Best Comment about Social Networks
We know that Doc Green is pretty smart right now. Some bad things are coming and gets a little bit of an insult.
We often see a lot of romance and kissing around here in installments of Best Stuff. This week we have one that's been a little overdue between Betty and Bruce.
CONVERGENCE NIGHTWING/ORACLE #2
Speaking of romance, here's a wedding we've all been waiting for and will likely never see in the current continuity. Perhaps someday Barbara Gordon and Dick Grayson can find a place together. At least this is one good thing about the Convergence tie ins.
INHUMAN ANNUAL #1
Where to begin to describe what's been going on for those that haven't been reading? Karnak died some time ago. He has a way of figuring out how to get out of certain situations and places. He's able to find the weakness in things. Let's just say he figured out a way to escape death. His return was a pretty glorious site.
CONVERGENCE SUPERMAN #2
While there was a birth in INHUMAN ANNUAL #1, the birth we see in this Convergence issue is one readers have been waiting for for a longer period of time. Again, it's something we won't be able to see in the "normal" comics. Yes, Lois Lane being pregnant by the Kryptonian Superman was properly explained and handled. It's nice to see comic characters get a happy moment once in a while.
You'll have to read the issue to find out what they name him.
Best Zoolander Reference
Scott Lang is a pretty goofy guy at times. Sometimes he can't even help but make himself laugh. While fighting Darren Cross, a guy that's been dead for a bit, he realizes there's some references the guy won't understand since he's been out of the loop.
Here's the reference from Zoolander.
Best Video Game Reference
We saw this mention in this week's Best Battles. Scott makes a reference to Battletoads.
What is this third level he speaks of? Watch this video to see what the level is about.
CONVERGENCE BATMAN AND ROBIN #2
Best Reason Not to Let Jason Todd Serve you Breakfast
In this Convergence timeline, it's not too different from what we're used to. Damian Wayne and Jason Todd don't get along too well. What Jason says might make you think twice if he ever offers to make or bring you breakfast.
Best Reason to Wear a Mask
We know the heroes wear masks to protect their secret identities and all but there's another good use for them. When Gwen was trying to put a stop to a couple kids with cans of spray paint, she gets a bit in the face.
Despite this, she still does the heroic thing when their movement puts their lives at risk and they start to fall to their deaths.
KANAN: THE LAST PADAWAN #2
Best ‘Losing His Head’ Moment
We saw in Episode III when Order 66 was given and the Clone Troopers turned on the Jedi. For Kanan, the young padawan, we see when that moment happens and the troops he's come to think of as friends turn on him and his master.
JUPITER’S CIRCLE #2
Best Use of Glasses with a Secret Identity
Many people have complained or joked about the idea of glasses as part of a secret identity. In this issue, we see there is a use for them and how they can change your appearance into a mild mannered average citizen.
SECRET WARS #1
Best Staring into the Abyss Moment
Doctor Doom stares into the Beyond. It's a pretty glorious sight.
Best Fastball Special
This one was also seen in this week's Best Battles but it was too good not to highlight here as well. Usually Colossus and Wolverine are the ones doing the Fastball Special. Wolverine's not really around and Hulk can do a bit more damage so...
GUARDIANS TEAM-UP #5
Best Game of Poker
I'm sure you've seen the Dogs Playing Poker paintings before. Rocket experiences a live version with a slight twist.
Best Dodging of a Bullet
The preview for next month's MIDNIGHTER issue appeared in CONVERGENCE: NIGHTWING/ORACLE #2 but you can read it digitally on the DC app and online at DC's site. What we see is an example how easily Midnighter can dodge a bullet--even if it's a weird demon bullet.
Spider-Woman had to sort of go undercover. She was hiding out in a villains's supersuit. When she's captured (it's part of the plan), we see how she escapes her situation.
Best Use of a Superhero Costume Top
Later, Jessica has to continue trying to go about in a discreet fashion. Looks like she can twist, tie, and fold her top into a purse.
That's it this week. Let us know in the comments below what other Best Stuff you dug this past week. Thanks to @DJFanco for his suggestion (sorry for not using it, it involved too many pages from the comic). 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 know exactly where your oatmeal is coming from.
