Weekly DC Review: March 26, 2021 (Week 12)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. DC Digital releases near-daily, at .99 cents a chapter, which comes to about 5.99 weekly, or around 2.99, 3.99 for the full three to four chapters that make up an average storyline. 

Hero Of The Week- Total domination from The Bat this week. Bruce gained 36 Points over 5 Appearances; second place would go to Clark at 16 Points over 2 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – An Al Ghul is a near weekly appearance it seems these days. Talia takes her first Antagonist Of The Week, at 6 Points over 2 Appearances.

Book Of The Week- Competition was tight this week for Book of The Week. The Twelve Characters of Teen Titans Academy (33) were unable to beat the stellar turnout of Midnighter, and the Kents (Clark, Jon) in Action Comics #1029 (35).

Statistical Notes-  1 New Hero Added.

It’s Month’s End, so time for the Top 10 Heroes and Antagonists.

TOP TEN HEROES
10.) Oracle (Barbara Gordon) – 46 Points (13 Appearances)
9.) Robin (Damian Wayne) – 53 Points (12 Appearances)
8.) Red Hood (Jason Todd) – 59 Points (9 Appearances)
7.) Catwoman (Selina Kyle) – 73 Points (10 Appearances)
6.) Nightwing (Dick Grayson) – 89 Points (17 Appearances)
5.) Batman (Jace Fox) – 93 Points (15 Appearances)
4.) Superboy (Jonathan Kent) – 126 Points (19 Appearances)
3.) Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) – 141 Points (21 Appearances)
2.) Superman (Clark Kent) – 151 Points (24 Appearances)
1.) Batman (Bruce Wayne) – 213 Points (34 Appearances)

Commentary: Batman returns to God like status, leaving everyone else behind. For their part, both Jonathan and Jace are holding their pace well, thanks to digital love. I believe we’ve locked into the year’s pattern; 70% Gothamite, with our 3 outsiders being Superman, Superboy, and Wonder Woman.

TOP TEN ANTAGONISTS
10.) Vandal Savage – 21 Points (7 Appearances)
9.) Lex Luthor – 23 Points (5 Appearances)
8.) Scarecrow – 24 Points (7 Appearances)
7.) Clayface – 25 Points (4 Appearances)
6.) Two Face – 29 Points (8 Appearances)
5.) Talia Al Ghul – 31 Points (8 Appearances)
4.) Sinestro – 32 Points (4 Appearances)
3.) Killer Croc – 33 Points (8 Appearances)
2.) Black Adam – 35 Points (7 Appearances)
1.) Poison Ivy – 43 Points (8 Appearances)

Commentary: We’ve dropped from 80% Gothamite to 60% Gothamite, which is always a nice sign. Ivy, Adam, Sinestro, and Clayface are ones to watch.
