Best Reason To Be Cautious If Iceman Offers Ice In A Drink
Laura Kinney (X-23) brings up a good point when Bobby offers her ice in a drink. If the ice is coming from his body, that could be kind of gross. We’ve always assumed he simply pulls the moisture from the air around him, but you never know…

Best Description Of What It’s Like Being On A Team With Hawkeye
Janet van Dyne and Bobbi Morse have been hanging out and working with Nadia Pym and her G.I.R.L. (Genius In action Research Labs) program.

Doctor Strange: The Best Defense
Best Trippy Adventure
You would think Doctor Strange would make a great travel agent since he knows all the routes through the most psychedelic places. This double-page spread by Greg Smallwood channels some of the classic Doctor Strange adventures we haven’t seen too often lately.
Wonder Woman #60
Best Use Of A Magic Lasso And Sword
Wonder Woman may be surrounded by armed soldiers, but there’s no way they stand even the slightest chance of defeating her. She throws up her sword and manages to get a hold of it with her lasso. Spinning it around, she easily disarms her foes.
Best Reason Why Thor May Not Have A Girlfriend
Thor and She-Hulk have sort of gotten together lately. Jennifer Walters decides to go on a date with the Asgardian, but his idea of a date is a trip to the Savage Land.

Justice League Dark #6
Best Excuse For A Brilliant Talking Chimp To Want To Drink All The Time
Detective Chimp has been drinking a lot lately. It seemed perhaps it was because of all the craziness going on lately and the death of his good friend. When trying to save a magical realm, he tells Blue Devil he needs the drink to help him focus, otherwise he’d be thinking of too many things at the same time.

Uncanny X-Men #5
Best Depiction Of A Typical Day For The X-Men
The X-Men do get some down time on ultra-rare occasions, but this image pretty much shows what their life is always like. Looks cool for us, but it’d be pretty sucky if you had to go through fight after fight all the time.
Most Interesting Cliffhanger This Week
This is something that was teased at San Diego Comic-Con, I believe. Little Jonathan Kent recently went off in space with his grandfather, Jor-El, who recently revealed he survived the destruction of Krypton. They haven’t been gone too long, but now it seems Jonathan is back and somehow has aged a bit.
Let’s hope he somehow returns to his actual age so we can see the continued adventures of the Super Sons with Damian Wayne. Aging kids is something that’s done on sitcoms when the writers don’t know what to do with the young characters.
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.
