Weekly DC Review: October 15, 2021 (Week 41)

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 Wonder Woman in October, with several oversized specials and one-shots, including a $9.99 100 Page Spectacular.

Weekly Omissions- Batman ’89 #3, Batman: The Imposter #1, Hardwire: Season One #2, Justice League: Last Ride #6, Pennyworth #3, Superman & The Authority #4, The Adventures Of Young Diana #1 (Reprint Of Old Material)

Hero Of The Week- Batman takes it again this week, but it wasn’t Bruce this time around. Jace Fox brought in 18 Points over 2 Appearances. This included the Performance Of The Week, which brought in 13 Points in a Single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – James Tynion’s influence on the Bat-Verse these past few years can’t be understated, especially when it comes to high performing new characters. Hitting her 6 Appearance per Year threshold, Vengeance burst on to the scene with 12 Points in a Single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- It was the Bat-Family vs. The Titans this week (even though half of the Titans are Bat-Family at this point). Batman: Urban Legends #8 took gold, with 57 Points over 14 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 1 New Hero, 4 New Antagonists Added: Monkey Prince (Marcus Sun) ; Bernadeath (Female Furies), Lashina (Female Furies), Mad Harriett (Female Furies), Vengeance
