Hero Of The Week-  Batman retains the Hero of the Week title, with 28 points over 5 appearances. Other notable performances are Superman with 24 over 4, WW with 21 over 2 appearances, and Barbara Gordon with 19 over 2.

Antagonist Of The Week – It was not a big week for villains, with only two putting up a real fight. The Joker takes gold with 12 points over 3 appearances. Man-Bat scores 9 points over 2 .

Book Of The Week- Batgirl #50 (47 points over 14 characters) and Justice League Dark #27 (48 over 10) put up solid fights, but Dark Nights Death Metal prevails once again. Dark Nights Death Metal: Rise Of The New God #1 scores 49 points over a total of 15 characters.

Statistical Notes-  3 New Antagonists Added. The monthly addition to the DC FCL roster is minimal compared to previous months. 6 new Heroes, and 9 New Villains were added in the month of October.

Batman broke 300 points in 13 weeks. He remains the undefeated champion with 320 points over 55 appearances.

Superman crossed the two hundred point threshold, with 222 points over 40 appearances. Batgirl will likely be the next hero to cross an important threshold, sitting at 94 points currently.

Harley Quinn remains the only Antagonist over 100 points, with 124 points over 28 appearances. The Joker stands poised to make the jump though, with 92 points over 23 appearances.

Key: TU – Team-Up; LT – Lead Team; SC – Save Civilian; CD – Character Development; DA – Defeat Antagonist.
