Hero Of The Week- Say His Name! Billy Batson scored a massive 19 points this week in the finale of his on going series. Shazam #14 would go on to give us both of our top contenders for Villain of the Week, but would not go on to take Book of the Week.

Book Of The Week- Although Shazam #14 would bring in a large sum with 76 points spread out over 16 characters, but it would be the finale of The Terrifics that would overthrow the book. The Terrifics #30 brought in 88 points, spread out over 12 characters.

Villain Of The Week- Black Adam, in his first tracked appearance, would bring the thunder with 12 points. In second place, would be Superboy Prime with 11 points. Both heroes appeared exclusively in Shazam #14 this week.

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