Hero Of The Week-  Wonder Woman returns to Hero of the Week, with a powerhouse perfomance of 31 points over 3 appearances. Superman and Batman would make up the rest of the top tier, with 23 points over 3 appearances, and 20 points over 4 appearances respectively.

Antagonist Of The Week – The stank of Gotham has washed off the DC Universe this week, with both Batman and Harley sitting out the weekly awards this week. Our new Antagonist of the Week is Darkseid with 15 points accrued over 2 appearances. Remnants of the Gotham stank remain in the top 3 though, in the form of Clayface with 11 points over a single appearance. Superboy Prime closes out the top with 10 points in a single appearance.

Book Of The Week- Although Dark Nights Death Metal came to play this week, they clearly forgot what month it is. DC’s The Doomed And The Damned one-shot took Book of the Week, with 141 points spread out over 19 characters.

Statistical Notes-  3 New Heroes, 2 New Antagonists Added.

Barry, Bruce, Clark, and Diana all had solo titles this week, and each of them scored 11 points in their respective series.

Wonder Woman passed the 200 point threshold, while The Flash crossed the 100 point threshold.

Bruce remains the Top Hero with 266 points over 46 appearances. Harley remains the Top Antagonist with 120 points over 26 appearances.
