Weekly DC Review: November 26, 2021 (Week 47)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. If you’re new to comics, but found your way here through other projects, DC has series for you. Batman ’89 continues the adventures of Michael Keaton/Tim Burton’s Bat-Verse, while the animated Harley Quinn series has Harley Quinn The Eat Kill Bang Tour.

Weekly Omissions- Batman: Reptilian #6, DC Vs. Vampires #2, Superman ’78 #4, The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox #12

Hero Of The Week- A slow week in Gotham gives someone else to shine in the limelight. And unsurprisingly, it’s the warrior supreme, Wonder Woman, who takes both Performance Of The Week and Hero Of The Week with a Single Appearance putting up 14 Points.

Antagonist Of The Week – Wonder Woman isn’t alone in the glory, as her antagonist Giganta also took Antagonist Of The Week with 10 Points in 1 Appearance.

Book Of The Week- Fear State lands itself to an oversized penultimate issue in Ram V’s Catwoman run. Catwoman #37 brought in 46 Points over 12 Characters.

MONTH END STATS

HEROES
1.) Batman (BW) – 797 Points (149 Appearances)
2.) Superman (CK) – 456 Points (81 Appearances)
3.) Wonder Woman (DP) – 425 Points (51 Appearances)
4.) Nightwing (DG) – 310 Points (66 Appearances)
5.) Superman (JK) – 254 Points (40 Appearances)
6.) Robin (DW) – 202 Points (45 Appearances)
7.) Oracle (BG) – 201 Points (61 Appearances)
8.) Catwoman (SK) – 197 Points (32 Appearances)
9.) Batman (JF) – 195 (36 Appearances)
10.) Red Hood (JT) – 194 Points (36 Appearances)

Final Month Preview: The likelihood of Batman breaking 900 Points next month is slim, but he does have an estimated 9 Appearances. Wonder Woman has two more Appearances over Superman, which may project her to silver in the final month. The Super-Sons have sat side by side for most of the year, but Oracle has twice as many Apps next month as Damian. That may flip their positioning, breaking apart the Super-Sons. And it’s a super tight race at the bottom. #11 Harley Quinn has 5 Appearances, where I predict she will push Jace Fox out of the Top 10, while Catwoman and Red Hood survive with their 3 Appearances a piece.

ANTAGONISTS
1.) Scarecrow – 102 Points (29 Appearances)
2.) Poison Ivy – 92 Points (23 Appearances)
3.) Ghost Maker – 87 Points (14 Appearances)
4.) Black Adam – 78 Points (20 Appearances)
5.) Amanda Waller – 71 Points (28 Appearances)
6.) Killer Croc – 70 Points (21 Appearances)
7.) Peacekeeper 01 – 68 Points (12 Appearances)
8.) The Joker – 66 Points (24 Appearances)
9.) Talia Al Ghul – 60 Points (18 Appearances)
10.) Clayface – 59 Points (14 Appearances)

Final Month Preview: Jonathan sits atop the hill now, but with Fear State nearly over, the others come nipping. Poison Ivy has 4 Appearances next month, and Ghost-Maker has an oversized Annual focused on him. It was be a frightening gnashing of blades and plants at the top next month. Peacekeeper 01’s ascent to the top is likely over now, especially with The Joker about to have one of his strongest months of 2021. A 100 Page Gotham Villain Celebration is coming out next and it’ll likely shake up these standings; Mr. Freeze waits at #11.
