Hero Of The Week- The Man Of Steel and Bat of Gotham had a midlevel brawl this week for first place. Both managed to bring in 15 Points, but Clark did it at one Appearance less, with a 15 over 3.

Antagonist Of The Week – It was a good week for antagonists, with some multiple Appearances and strong solo showings. Lex Luthor outshined them all in the final Future State book, a series centered around him, which gave him 9 Points.

Book Of The Week- The return of the monthly Flash series raced in to snatch Book of The Week. The Flash #768 brought in 31 Points over 11 Characters.
