Hero Of The Week- While Wonder Woman would bring in 24 Points over 2 Appearances, including the Performance of The Week with 18 Points in Wonder Woman: Black & Gold #1, it still was not enough to keep pace with Batman, who appeared 6 times and scored 29 Points.

Antagonist Of The Week – Black Adam, The Penguin, and Ra’s Al Ghul would all put 5 Points on the board, but it was Circe who would take it this week, scoring 6 Points in her single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- For the first time in the Bendis era, Justice League did not take Book of the Week. Instead it would fall to the launch of the new Event series, Infinite Frontier #1, which would bring in 44 Points over 16 Characters.
