Weekly DC Review: April 23, 2021 (Week 16)

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- It was a battle between Bruce and two different Kal-Els. Bruce,scored 14 Points over 3 Appearances, while Calvin Ellis did the same in a single standout performance of the week. Clark Kent would emerge on top, with 17 Points over 2 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – Cyborg Superman and Lex Luthor both put up 5 Points, but it would be Newcomer, Father Valley, who would take it with 6 Points. The central Antagonist in the excellent Ram V/Fernando Blanco Catwoman series, Father Valley is the type of lethal Antagonist I haven’t seen pulled off in a long time; Catwoman is one of DC’s best series.

Book Of The Week- The Two In One Justice League Series was the biggest book this week, with Justice League #60 scoring 46 Points over 16 Characters.

Statistical Notes-  1 New Antagonist Added.
