Time for the weekly dose of Comic Book Highlights. This was another great week that delivered some very cool Highlights. Out of the pack this week's highlights Thanos Imperative #2 stood tall and deliver the biggest and best highlights this week. Outside of Thanos Imperative we also had some Super-Dickery from Superman, Phoenix returns (?), a look at Spider-Man's possible future, Penguin having an "interesting" dream, and much more. Hit the jump button to check out all of this week's Comic Book Highlights.
COVER OF THE WEEK: GORILLA MAN #1 BY LEONARD KIRK
No contest as Gorilla Man is styling and profiling in this cover as he is surrounded by beautiful women. Gorilla Man rules as I'm sure this comic did as well. Very eye catching cover for a comic that looks like it was a lot of fun.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #637
Looks like the Spider(-Man) is now hunting the Hunters.
A look into Spider-Man's future. It looks like Marvel is referencing JMS run much more now as the costume that Spider-Man is wearing that looks like a jacket looks very similar to a future Spider-Man costume from Amazing Spider-Man #499.
Madame Web passes on her powers to Julia Carpenter and Julia passes on her costume to Arana who looks like is the new Spider-Girl from the rumors.
AVENGERS ACADEMY #2
Looks like someone is very interested in Quicksilver's history. Wonder if it mentions him having a crazy sister.
Bruce knows how to survive. Not even a helicopter crash can kill him.
Bruce knows how to ride in style for his last mission before his death.
BIRDS OF PREY #3
Penguin sure knows how to have good dreams and Penguin continues to be the only good thing about Birds of Prey even though I like most of the characters on this title.
BOOSTER GOLD #34
As I always say, everything is better when we get some dragons in comics.
Finally Elektra re-appears! Now things should get even more interesting. Can't wait to see what she does. Will she side with Matt? Will she fight Matt? Or something else? Can't wait to find out.
GIRL COMICS #3
Looks like Wolverine finally got his own Wolverinemobile.
INVICIBLE IRON MAN #28
Tony just figured out the best way to not make a one-night stand awkward: erase it from your mind.
Instead of almost giving a dude a heartattack why not just lift up a truck or just fly around to show you still have your powers. Or better yet go pick up a pizza from New York City and return in 30 seconds. Remember if its not there in 30 seconds it means Superman doesn't have his powers.
Come on Superman the kid was just asking you a simple question. And of course you didn't answer the kid's question giving you yet another Super-Dickery moment in an issue that was filled with these type of dumb moments.
THANOS IMPERATIVE #2
Again Brandon would have put me on a shuttle that was on a one way stop to the sun if I didn't include at least one Silver Surfer moment that happened in Thanos Imperative. Are you happy Brandon? ;)
Silver Surfer brought his friends along to help save the universe. And next time on "Silver Surfer and His Amazing Friends" they will eradicate Twilight from existences.
Gamora I love you so much. You are just so awesome.
Cancerverse Hulk just got pwned by Cosmo. Your a good boy Cosmo.
This is called Thanos Imperative afterall he had to get his moment to shine by killing the Cancerverse Defenders. What you going to do Cancerverse when Thanos comes after you.
No Marvel Cosmic Event is complete without some Rocket Raccoon awesomeness.
Things just went from bad to worse for the 616-Universe which means good things for us.
X-MEN: SECOND COMING #2
Great speech by Hope. This was my favorite scene in the whole issue. Good to see Scott finally showing some emotions after all that has happened and that Hope stepped up and gave a great speech about Cable.
There are two things wrong with this image: 1) Greg Land's "art" and 2) Deadpool. Somehow Marvel was able too combine their worst "artist" and most overrated character in one image. Thanks for turning me off to even considering to picking up Uncanny X-Force.
Looks like the Phoenix is back. That's not good news for Emma.
Looks like Scott was right all along. Suck it Storm and Beast. *DX X chop*
