Hero Of The Week-  Wonder Woman takes the final Hero of the Week in 2020, shocking absouletely no-one whose been paying attention to these things. She scored 25 Points over 4 Appearances, just narrowly beating Superman one last time; he scored 21 Points over 3 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – Cheetah is getting her first Antagonist of The Week, scoring 15 Points over 2 Appearances. Looking at our top Antagonist and our top Hero, it’s almost as if… they were in a movie recently or something.

Book Of The Week- We end 2020 with a book that shatters all previous records in the FCL. Dark Nights Death Metal: The Last 52, The War Of The Multiverses #1 is the first ever book to break 300 Points, bringing in exactly that number over 76 Characters. Of course we have a record breaking amount of points on a 53rd week that shouldn’t even exist.
