Weekly DC Review: June 24, 2022 (Week 25)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. DC is home to some fantastic Elseworlds Comics that receive publication under the DC Black Label. This month sees the publication of The Human Target from Tom King and Greg Smallwood, and the conclusion of the 3 Part Superman vs. Lobo Miniseries.

Weekly Omissions- Duo #2, Earth-Prime #6, Milestones In History #1, Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen’s Boss Perry White #1

Hero Of The Week- What a shocker, Bruce Wayne took both Hero Of The Week (23 Points over 4 Appearances) and Performance Of The Week (14 Point Appearance) yet again.

Antagonist Of The Week – With the launch of his new on-going, it is no surprise that Black Adam took Antagonist Of The Week with 11 Points in a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- Even though Dark Crisis showed it’s face this week, a Batman-less Event cannot best a Batman title, with Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #4 taking gold, bringing in 71 Points over 14 Characters.

Welcome to the League – Two New Heroes, 1 New Antagonist Added: Arrowette (Cissie King-Jones), Warlord (Travis Morgan); The Devil Nezha

WEEK 24 / WEEK 26

TOP 10 HEROES
1.) Batman (Bruce Wayne) – 459 Points (84 Appearances)

10.) Spoiler (Stephanie Brown) – 91 Points (23 Appearances)

Commentary: The big winners this month were Jonathan Kent (7 to 4), and Wally West (8 to 6), while both Damian and Arthur dropped down 3 Positions. 50% Bat-Family, up from 40% Bat-Family in May.

TOP 10 ANTAGONISTS
1.) Black Adam – 72 Points (19 Appearances)
2.) Deathstroke – 70 Points (13 Appearances)
3.) Ghost Maker – 70 Points (14 Appearances)

8.) Poison Ivy – 35 Points (11 Appearances)
9.) Mirror Master – 34 Points (11 Appearances)
10.) Lex Luthor – 33 Points (13 Appearances)

Commentary: Some of the big winners were Lex Luthor and Poison Ivy, who re-entered the top 10 at 10th and 8th respectively. The biggest winner is Ghost Maker, who jumped up from 5th to 3rd place. Talia Al Ghul also jumped 3 Points from 9th to 6th. I think our top 3 will continue to duke it out while Poison Ivy breaks into the top 5 next month.
