Weekly DC Review: March 5, 2021 (Week 09)

FUTURE STATE IS NO MORE, THE INFINITE FRONTIER BEGINS

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.

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- Another week, another Gothamite vs Other contender. This time, Diana Prince returns to fight the main Bat himself. The battle between the two would come to a draw, with both scoring 14 Points over 2 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – The Gotham City show down between antagonists would nearly come to a tie as well; Scare-Crow would bring in 9 points over 3 Appearances, but it only took Ghost-Maker 2 Appearances to put up the same numbers.

Book Of The Week- It’s the start of Infinite Frontier, a new era for DC Comics, so unsurprisingly, Infinite Frontier #0 would be our biggest book of the week. It brought in 100 Points, split between 43 Characters.

Statistical Notes- 4 New Heroes, 3 New Antagonists Added.

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