Last week felt as if it went by pretty quickly. It's hard to believe we're in the second week of September already. Last week didn't have any major shocking news like a certain kiss we had the week before. That kiss changed the top viewed character.

Here's what happened last week if you want to compare it to this week.

Top Seven Viewed Comic Characters

  1. Batman
  2. Superman
  3. Spider-Man
  4. Wonder Woman
  5. Hulk
  6. Wolverine
  7. Ben 10

Batman is still hanging onto the top slot of most viewed characters. The number two spot is where the action is. Last week we saw Wonder Woman grab the #2 spot with Superman right behind. This week there's a little more of a shake up as Spider-Man fights back for that spot. Ben 10 managed to rise and we also saw the debut of Simon Baz in the top ten.

  7. Trolling and Comics Don't Have to Mix

Hopefully you picked up DETECTIVE COMICS last week. The zero issue gave us a look at a time in Batman's training that hasn't really been seen often. It also appears there was some interest in Joker taking on other heroes. It would never happen but it made an interesting discussion. Based on the comments you can really see the difference in perception people have of the DC Universe compared to Marvel's.

Top Seven Viewed Reviews

  1. Green Lantern #0
  2. Earth 2 #0
  3. Detective Comics #0
  4. Action Comics #0
  5. Worlds' Finest #0
  6. Swamp Thing #0
  7. The Phantom Stranger #0

I think this is a first. The top seven are all DC Comics. Looks like the idea to do zero issues was a good one. Spider-Man was close to Phantom Stranger so there was some variation after. If you're really curious, Spider-Man was followed by Venom and Hawkeye so the top ten wasn't all zero issues.

I love that the 3-Minute Expert was in the Top 7 this week. Maybe they're popular enough for some more featurettes.

Why is Ben 10 so popular? I hardly see any threads about him

@theTimeStreamer: @Jonny_Anonymous: No idea. For some reason, people are searching him and checking out his page. He's been slowly climbing. He appeared in the occasional Cartoon Network comic but there hasn't been one in quite some time.

Green Lantern #0 is amazing!

Imo, one of the best comics this years so far.
