Weekly DC Review: February 12, 2021 (Week 06)

WEEK 5 / WEEK 7

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- The Predominant Green Lantern, the Mightiest Superman, and the Original Batman all went head to head this week at the top; John Stewart came up with 17 Points, Jonathan Kent brought in 18 Points, but it was Bruce Wayne who took Gold, with 19 Points over 3 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – It was the Suicide Squad who brought the heavy hitters this week for Antagonists, with newcomer Amanda Waller bringing in 10 Points against Floyd Lawton’s 12 Points over 2 Appearances.

Book Of The Week- DC’s Valentine’s Day Special, DC: Love Is A Battlefield #1, brought in a whooping 133 Points over 37 Characters. That’s 3.6 Points per Character, which is a higher than usual average.

Statistical Notes-  4 New Heroes, 7 New Antagonists added.

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