Weekly DC Review: February 19, 2021 (Week 07)

WEEK 6 / WEEK 8

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.

We missed last week’s issue of Truth & Justice in the Week 06 write-up, so it’s being included in this week.

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

Hero Of The Week- The title card is a classic Gothamite vs Another for the top. The original Superman arrives as the contender, against Selina Kyle. They each went for 3 rounds, but Superman took it with 26 Points, to Selina’s 20.

Antagonist Of The Week – The seedy underbelly of Gotham took the top three positions. Poison Ivy took second with 12 Points over a single appearance. Two-Face got to 12 points as well, just a little slower at Two Appearances. And Talia Al Ghul had a stellar week, putting up 14 points over 3 Appearances to take first.

Book Of The Week- Nothing came even close to Future Slate: The Next Batman #4 this week. 170 Points, over 29 Characters. Three big stories, one issue. This feels like the finale of Future State.

Statistical Notes-  1 New Hero, 3 New Antagonists Added.

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