Weekly DC Review: September 24, 2021 (Week 38)

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- Batman: The Detective #5

Hero Of The Week- Batman takes both Hero Of The Week (22, 2 App) and Performance Of The Week (15, 1 App).

Antagonist Of The Week – While newcomer Miracle Molly was able to put up the same number of Points in 2 Appearances, it would be Neron who scored Antagonist Of The Week with 9 Points in a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- It was a really small week, with the Book Of The Week going to Batman #112, with 38 Points over 10 Characters. It’s not even a big issue by Event standards.

Welcome to the League – 1 New Antagonist Added: Miracle Molly (Mary Kowalski)

WEEK 37 / WEEK 39

MONTH END STATS

TOP 10 HEROES

1.) Batman (Bruce Wayne) – 670 Points (124 Appearances)
2.) Superman (Clark Kent) – 378 Points (66 Appearances)
3.) Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) – 321 Points (42 Appearances)
4.) Superboy (Jonathan Kent) – 224 Points (36 Appearances)
5.) Nightwing (Dick Grayson) – 223 Points (49 Appearances)
6.) Catwoman (Selina Kyle) – 170 Points (25 Appearances)
7.) Batman (Jace Fox) – 163 Points (30 Appearances)
8.) Oracle (Barbara Gordon) – 160 Points (50 Appearances)
9.) Robin (Damian Wayne) – 154 Points (35 Appearances)
10.) Red Hood (Jason Todd) – 152 Points (29 Appearances)

Commentary: Superboy enjoys what I presume to be his last month in the Top 4, as Nightwing closes in fast on him. Catwoman climbed from 8th to 6th this month, the most significant direction for anybody in the Top 10 during September.

TOP 10 ANTAGONISTS

1.) Scarecrow – 85 Points (24 Appearances)
2.) Ghost Maker – 71 Points (10 Appearances)
3.) Black Adam – 62 Points (16 Appearances)
4.) Poison Ivy- 60 Points (14 Appearances)
5.) The Joker – 58 Points (20 Appearances)
6.) Killer Croc – 57 Points (18 Appearances)
7.) Amanda Waller – 56 Points (20 Appearances)
8.) Clayface – 50 Points (12 Appearances)
9.) Lex Luthor – 49 Points (14 Appearances)
10.) Mr. Freeze – 48 Points (13 Appearances)

Commentary: Lex Luthor fell 3 spots to #9, Talia and Vandal fell out of the Top 10 to #11 and #12 respectively. Meanwhile, Amanda Waller debuts at #7, and may soon overtake Killer Croc and Joker (of the 3, I want Waylon to do best).
