Weekly DC Review: January 22nd, 2021 (Week 3)


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-  Future State continues to bring honor and glory to newcomers, as Selina Kyle takes her first Hero Of The Week accolade. She scored 29 Points over 3 Appearances, leaving the competition in the dust.

Antagonist Of The Week – Queen Ivy (6 Points) went toe-to-toe with two aliens this week in hopes of taking Antagonist Of The Week. She put Giganta (5 Points) under, but Darkseid Is the winner, with 7 Points.

Book Of The Week- Future State brought a few heavy hitters to the table this week, but no city has as many characters per capita as Gotham and Future State: The Next Batman #2 took gold with 55 Points over 19 Characters.

Statistical Notes-  2 New Heroes, 2 New Antagonists Added. Tanya Spears is a favorite of Shaun’s, so he’s ecstatic to have her in the database now.

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