Hero Of The Week-  Batman retakes Hero of the Week, with 26 points over 4 appearances. Other notable performances were Nightwing with 18 over 3, and Catwoman with an unlucky 13 over 2.

Antagonist Of The Week – The strong single appearance performers were in the Antagonist category. Four broke into double digits, but silver would go to KGBeast with 11 points in a single appearance. The Robin King would live up to his name, grabbing 17 points in a single bloody appearance.

Book Of The Week- This was a remarkably consistent week in the way the numbers fell. Two Bat-Family books scored within the range of 10-20 points. Wonder Woman and Batman’s digital titles both brought in points within the twenty point range. Aquaman and Teen Titans popped up in the 30 point range, but there would be four books that broke into the 40 point range. None of those four titles would break 44 points though providing a tight race at the finish: Metal Men #11 and Nightwing #75 both brought in 41 points, Justice League #55 would bring in 42 points, and the Robin King Dark Nights Death Metal One Shot would bring in 44 points to take gold.

Statistical Notes-  4 New Heroes, 2 New Antagonists Added.

Bruce remains the Top Hero with 292 points over 50 appearances. Harley Quinn remains the Top Antagonist with 121 points over 27 appearances. Superman would have crossed the 200 point threshold if he had done just a little more than appear; he sits at 198 points over 36 appearances. The big ascension was Robin King, who took 3rd place in the Antagonist category with 40 points over 5 appearances.
