Weekly DC Review: July 2, 2021 (Week 26)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. DC is celebrating the 80th anniversary of several notable characters with $9.99 100 Page specials, starting with Aquaman & Green Arrow.

Weekly Omissions – RWBY/Justice League #14

Hero Of The Week- Green Arrow takes both the Performance Of The Week, as well as Character of the Week, scoring 18 Points in a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – While Shado and Father Valley would each bring in 8 Points in a single Appearance this week, Ra’s Al Ghul’s Two Appearance advantage would give him a total of 9 Points.

Book Of The Week- It’s the 100 Page Special, nothing else came close in this tiny week. The Green Arrow 80th Anniversary 100 Page Special #1 brought in 88 Points over 23 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 2 New Antagonists Added: Malcolm Merlyn and Shado Adachi.

Month End Rankings –

HEROES
1.) Batman (Bruce Wayne) – 493 Points, 88 Appearances
2.) Superman (Clark Kent) – 301 Points, 49 Appearances
3.) Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) – 231 Points, 31 Appearances
4.) Superboy (Jonathan Kent) – 189 Points, 30 Appearances
5.) Nightwing (Dick Grayson) – 160 Points, 33 Appearances
6.) Robin (Damian Wayne) – 130 Points, 29 Appearances
7.) Batman (Jace Fox) – 124 Points, 24 Appearances
8.) Catwoman (Selina Kyle) – 120 Points, 17 Appearances
9.) Oracle (BG) – 109 Points, 32 Appearances
10.) Red Hood (Jason Todd) – 104 Points, 17 Appearances

Commentary: Batman put up a 100 Points this month, Oracle returned to the top 10, and Damian moved past Jace Fox. If Damian Wayne keeps this pace up, he’ll surpass Dick Grayson sooner rather than later. It’s the fight I’m watching in the Top 10. Oliver Queen jumped 11 spots this month, to score 13th overall.

ANTAGONISTS

1.) Poison Ivy – 55 Points, 12 Appearances
2.) Scarecrow – 54 Points, 16 Appearances
3.) Killer Croc- 49 Points, 12 Appearances
4.) Black Adam – 48 Points, 11 Appearances
5.) Lex Luthor – 46 Points, 11 Appearances
6.) Vandal Savage – 43 Points, 12 Appearances
7.) The Joker – 39 Points, 14 Appearances
8.) Talia Al Ghul – 38 Points, 11 Appearances
9.) Mr. Freeze – 37 Points, 10 Appearances
10.) Clayface – 36 Points, 8 Appearances

Commentary: Croc was the big winner this month, as he jumped 4 spots, from 7th to 3rd. Talia also jumped 3 spots, from 10th to 7th. Mr. Freeze re-entered the Top 10 after a month off, at 9th place. The big loser this month was Sinestro, who fell from 6th to 11th place. And lastly, Poison Ivy’s lead becomes nonexistent as a single point keeps her at the top of the Antagonist category.
