Hero Of The Week- Batman dominated over the week, amassing a 36 point tally over five appearances. That was nearly double that of second place, which was Red Hood with 20 over 2. Batgirl rounded out the trinity with 19 points over 2 appearances.

Book Of The Week- With no Death Metal in sight, The Flash #760 took the title of the week, bringing in a huge cast of villains and Speedsters to accrue 69 points. This score just narrowly beat out the event title, The Three Jokers, which scored 59 points.

Villain Of The Week- Joker at 20 points, spread out over 5 appearances. Harley Quinn and Killer Croc both come at him with 10 points over 3 appearances apiece.

Statistical Notes- 4 new Heroes, 12 new Villains added. In the first month we added exactly 30 heroes and 30 villains to tracking.

Batman has firmly dethroned Wonder Woman in the first month. He has 113 points, to Wonder Woman’s 93.

Harley Quinn retains the Antagonist Belt, with 54 points overall, but her former flame, The Joker sky-rocketed past the competition to second with thirty three points.
