Weekly DC Review: January 15th, 2021 (Week 2)

WEEK 1 / WEEK 3

For those keeping track of their own review teams, full statistics can be found in the below character reviews. Please use these results to determine your score and support us via the Fantasy Comic League’s Patreon page to become a Sanctioned Review Agent. Make sure to tweet any questions or comments to @FantasyComicLG on Twitter while using the #FantasyComicLeague tag!

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, the Comixology service, or through their website, https://www.readdc.com/

House-Keeping: As it currently stands, we at the Fantasy Comic League only count things that are identifiably the Prime DC Universe, so titles such as DCeased will still not be scored. Books being printed in other imprints (with the exception of the occasional Black Label book) will not count for tracking.

After the blending of Pre and Post-New 52 histories, the new revised ruling for counting DC Heroes for tracking will be a total of 52 Appearances from their combined Prime and New Earth continuities.

We score Digital First comics when they release digitally, not when they are collected in print.

If you have any questions about this, please reach out to us on Twitter.

Hero Of The Week-  For the second week in a row, Jonathan Kent took Hero Of The Week. He shines brighter than his father ever did as Superman, because Clark was rarely able to wrestle a Hero Of The Week away from Wonder Woman, while Jonathan runs circles around two of them.

Antagonist Of The Week – It was a remarkably quiet week for Antagonists, with only four putting in Appearances. Felix Faust took third with Two Points, Doctor Psycho took second with Three Points, and Vandal Savage took first with Eight Points over Two Appearances.

Book Of The Week- It is so lovely to have a week where no comics break into triple digit Points. This week’s highest performer was Future State: Justice League #1, which put up 56 Points over 14 Characters.

Statistical Notes-  6 New Heroes, 1 Antagonist Added.
