Weekly DC Review: September 10, 2021 (Week 36)

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

Weekly Omissions- Suicide Squad: Get Joker #2

Hero Of The Week- A smaller week with a focus on the Green Lanterns and the Suicide Squad led to some interesting results this week. It would be an old face turned Yellow that took both Hero and Performance of the Week. Jessica Cruz brought in 15 Points during a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – While the Lanterns locked up the Hero category, the Squad duked it out for Antagonist. The boss lady herself, Amanda Waller, almost came in first with 10 Points over 2 Appearances. But it would be her Superboy, now revealed as 90s creation, Match, who would take it with 13 Points over 2 Appearances.

Book Of The Week- The conclusion to Act 1 of Joshua Williamson’s Infinite plans, Infinite Frontier #6 took Book of the Week with 65 Points over 32 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 1 Protagonist, 9 Antagonists Added: Pariah (Kelli Mossa);
