Best Way To Travel Around Hel
Thor unwittingly allowed Loki to transport him to Hel. He made sure to bring Loki and his boat along. Once Thor arrives, he was greeted by Balder…driving a monster truck. Hopefully it gets good gas mileage in Hel.
Best Insult To Loki
Thor needs someone to drive his boat. There’s no way he’d let Loki get behind the wheel.
Injustice 2 #64
Best Continued Reason Lobo Should Never Be Given A Power Ring
Lobo is a pretty despicable fellow. You can image what sort of constructs he’d create once given a power ring. At least it appears some of them are educational.
Multiple Man #1
Best “Stop Hitting Yourself” Moment
Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man, is back. To make things worse, another version of himself, from the future, arrived, and the two started to fight.
Best Thing To Bring To A Fight
Anyone who has seen the first Avengers movie knows the way to get the upper hand during a fight is to bring a Hulk. The X-Men find themselves attacked by a strange and almost familiar-looking group of foes, including a Hulk.
Bane: Conquest #12
Best Reason KGBeast Needs To Watch His Weight
It appears things have been pretty good for Batman’s old foe, the KGBeast. He’s been living pretty comfortably and has gained some weight–so much that one of his comrades even makes a reference to it with an insult.
Moon Knight #196
Best Group Of Bizarre Moon Knights
Moon Knight was trying to fight a group of people that have combined into a creature called the Collective. Moon Knight gets absorbed and becomes trapped inside their shared mindscape. The leader’s persona mentions there are a lot of personalities inside and Marc is the one to keep them in line. Because of where they’re at, it’s just a matter of making your thoughts manifest and we see a strange group of Moon Knights.
Best Reason Not To Go Out To Lunch With Talia al Ghul
Honor Guest used to be an assassin known as the Silencer who worked for Leviathon and trained by Talia al Ghul. She thought she was able to get out and live a normal life. Talia has pulled her back in because she needs her help. A simple lunch meeting quickly turns deadly. Wonder who is going to pay the check?
Deadpool: Assassin #2
Most Ironic Codename
Deadpool is trying to protect a client in New Orleans. Unfortunately the Assassins Guild wants this guy dead. One guy that comes Deadpool’s way is Razorfist. This is a guy with blades for hands. There’s no way he can actually make a fist. Deadpool even asks him how he picks his nose. Razorfist tries denying he does. The answer is probably “very carefully.”
Man Of Steel #5
Best Item To Consider Before Taking A Long Journey
It’s still not fully clear what happened to Clark and Lois’ kid, Jonathan. The pieces are starting to come together. Jonathan has the opportunity to take a special trip. He makes sure to bring up some important questions dealing with the right amount of underwear he should bring along.
Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #32
Best (And Quickest) Burn
There’s a new student in Lunella’s class. She seems to have a pretty high opinion of herself. Lunella’s classmate, Eduardo, asks her a question and she quickly offers a nice retort. I guess when you’re the smartest person on the planet, witty comebacks come extra quickly.
The Terrifics #5
Best (And Cutest) Dog This Week
The Terrifics get an alert that an entire city is being “Metamorphoed.” As they try to control the crowd and offer assistance, Element Girl comes across an “Element Dog” who has been affected by these strange circumstances. He tags along as they discover who is responsible for this mess. Let’s hope Element Dog sticks around and becomes part of the team.
Amazing Spider-Man: Wakanda Forever #1
Best Reason To Avoid Homemade Slime
It seems the youth of today have a fascination with making slime. It’s a pretty simple process and there’s lots of variations that can be added. You can even find tons of Instagram pages with people handling the crackling and oozing slime. That’s what Spider-Man jokingly thinks is happening here. It’s something a bit more dangerous.
That’s it for this week. Be sure to pick up these comics at your local comic shop, if you haven’t already if any of these moments strikes your fancy.
