Hero Of The Week-  Both Batman and Superman had five Appearances this week, but Bruce put up 25 Points while Clark was only able to gather 22 Points.

Antagonist Of The Week – Let us all bow to Superboy Prime, who took 1st place in the Antagonist category this week, with 17 Points accrued in a single Appearance. Harley Quinn had three issues of her digital title drop, but could only put up 14 Points in that time.

Book Of The Week- Unsurprisingly, it was three Event books fighting it out at the top this week. Dark Nights Death Metal came in third, meaning our first place (Justice League Dark #29 with 70 Points over 19 Characters) and second place (Black Adam: Endless Winter Special #1 with 61 Points over 14 Characters) both went to Endless Winter.

Statistical Notes-  2 New Antagonists Added.

Congratulations to both John Stewart (105 over 21) and Swamp Thing (108 over 23), both of whom cross the 100 point threshold this week. Wonder Woman celebrates the release of her movie, WW84, by crossing the 400 point Threshold. She sits at 406 Points over 58 Appearances.

Batman remains the Hero Of 2020 with 486 Points, over 86 Appearances. He will likely break 500 Points in the final week of the year.

Harley Quinn remains the Antagonist of 2020 with 168 Points over 40 Appearances.
