Hero Of The Week- This week, all three of the DC trinity had triple appearances, but who would take the crown? Wonder Woman would take bronze with 21 points, Batman with 25, and Superman wins his first Hero Of The Week with 29 points.

Antagonist Of The Week – As The Joker War rages, it is no surprise that The Joker is our Antagonist of The Week, with 16 points garnered over 5 appearances. Harley Quinn would take second once again, with 10 points over a single appearance.

Book Of The Week- Although she wasn’t able to take Antagonist of the week, Harley would take Book of the Week when Harley Quinn & The Birds Of Prey #3 (63 over 15 characters) beat Dark Night Death Metal: Multiverse’s End #1 (55 over 10 characters). Always nice to see an event lose to a normal title.

Statistical Notes- 3 New Heroes, 7 New Antagonists Added. In the second month of tracking, we added 32 new Heroes, 27 New Antagonists.

Jason Todd scored double CD points this week, for being traumatized time and time again.

It’s the end of the second month, so let’s look back at the top 10 for each category once again.
