Weekly DC Review: January 28th, 2022 (Week 4)

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/Catwoman Special #1, DC Vs. Vampires #4, Peacemaker: Disturbing The Peace #1, Static Season One #5, Superman ’78 #6, The Human Target #4

Hero Of The Week- Our first month closes out with Clark Kent’s Super performance, bringing in 17 Points over 4 Appearances. Damian Wayne, Harley Quinn, and Yara Flov all tied for Performance Of The Week, with 11 Points in a singular Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – A handful of villains broke double digits this week, with Deathstroke, Mr. Bloom, and Ra’s Al Ghul tying for second with 10 Points in a Single Appearance. However, scoring Two Appearances gave Black Adam the edge, with a total of 11 Points.

Book Of The Week- It’s a Justice League week; Justice League #71 brought in 78 Points over 32 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 2 New Heroes Added: Fire (Beatriz da Costa), Robot Man (Clifford Steele); 2 New Antagonists Added: Prometheus, Respawn



1.) Batman (Bruce Wayne) – 65 Points (14 Appearances)
2.) Nightwing (Dick Grayson) – 41 Points (11 Appearances)
3.) Superman (Jonathan Kent) – 30 Points (4 Appearances)
4.) Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) – 28 Points (4 Appearances)
5.) Robin (Damian Wayne) – 26 Points (4 Appearances)
6.) Aquaman (Arthur Curry) – 20 Points (5 Appearances)
7.) Superman (Clark Kent) – 20 Points (6 Appearances)
8.) Donna Troy – 18 Points (5 Appearances)
9.) Oracle (Barbara Gordon) – 18 Points (7 Appearances)
10.) Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) – 16 Points (4 Appearances)

Commentary: Man, I wish this level of diversity in the Top 10 would continue on past this first month. Donna Troy is in the Top Ten for the first time, and Jonathan Kent outperformed Diana in the same amount of Appearances. Clark Kent being #7 is the biggest surprise.


1.) King Shark – 15 Points (2 Appearances)
2.) Black Adam – 15 Points (4 Appearances)
3.) Manchester Black/Mr. Bloom/Ra’s Al Ghul – 10 Points (1 Appearance)
6.) Defacer/Scarecrow – 10 Points (2 Appearances)
8.) Deathstroke – 9 Points (1 Appearance)
9.) Bloodsport/Lex Luthor/The Calculator – 8 Points (2 Appearances)

Commentary: A lot of ties in these early days of 2022. Scarecrow’s continued presence after his 2021 ending Event is surprising, while King Shark’s #1 spot is not, since he was the lead of a now concluded series. I’m feeling big things for Lex and Slade in 2022.
