San Diego Comic-Con, the yearly extravaganza for amazing costumes and exclusive news from beloved comics, movies, and television, has officially finished. Now that the dust has settled and people have carefully wrapped their Storm Trooper outfits in bubble wrap for the trip home, Twitter’s data team has analyzed which events caused the most spike on the social network.

The biggest news to come out of Comic-Con, tweet-wise, was the exclusive trailer and announcements from the June 11 “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” panel, which won the weekend with a peak of 1,600 tweets per minute. That number eclipses the June 10 “Star Wars” panel, which topped out at 980 tweets per minute.

Other highlights include the panels for “Hunger Games,” “Once Upon a Time,” and “Supernatural.”
