Welcome to “Pages & Panels: The Best of Marvel Comics.” As the name suggests this column will feature a look at the best pages and panels of the week, as chosen by The Marvel Report staff. The selections, just like Marvel Comics as a whole, will run the gamut from heartfelt, to funny, and everything between. Not only will the biggest, and most important moments of the week be highlighted, but quieter moments as well.
The winner of last week’s poll with 54% of the vote was “God Doom Powers Activate” from Secret Wars #8 by Jonathan Hickman, and Esad Ribic.
Now moving on to this week’s selections. Be advised, the very nature of this column could be considered one big spoiler. If you haven’t read through this week’s comics, and don’t want to be spoiled this is your warning.

Why: I love how Cyclops just exploded in this panel telling Austin that he is the real Scott Summers.
THE MIGHTY THOR #2
Written by Jason Aaron
Art by Russell Dauterman
Why: Loki and Jane Foster face to face! This is going to be good. I also really liked how the last page of this issue tied in Jane’s beginning monologue.
MS. MARVEL #2
Written by G Willow Wilson
Art by Takeshi Miyazawa
Why: I have been waiting for Kamala and her mother to interact especially because Kamala’s mother knows she is Ms Marvel.
ULTIMATE END #5
Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Why: Now I am really curious to see how Miles’ mother is still alive. I guess we are going to have to wait for Spider-Man #1 to find out.
Why: Story wise this got a little boring, but it was cool to see everyone react to Doom not being God.
WEB WARRIORS #2

Why: I love Spider Ham’s sense of humor.

Why: Everything Becca should have done before going to Weirdworld.
Why: Becca lying about killing wizards was hilarious.
Why: In the beginning of the issue we find out Becca’s worst day wasn’t going to real world and the reveal is heartbreaking.
