Hero Of The Week-  It was a small week at DC Comics, which of course means it was a Batman week at DC Comics. Batman took gold, with 19 points corralled over 3 appearances. Hot on his heels though, with a single appearance, was Swamp Thing with 15 points.

Antagonist Of The Week – The Bat-Shenanigan continues, with Harley Quinn taking the belt with 13 points over 2 appearances. The Joker, got scary close to snatching it again, with 12 points over a single appearance that brought a close to The Joker War.

Book Of The Week- With only six books of relevance released this week, it was a delightfully small week. BATMAN #100, the finale of The Joker War, brought in 76 points over 15 characters.

Statistical Notes-  2 New Antagonists Added.

Batman remains our Top Hero with 246 points over 42 appearances. There is 67 points between him and second place, Wonder Woman.

Harley Quinn remains our Top Antagonist, with 117 points over 25 appearances. The Joker trails her by 36 points in second place.
