  1. Knew 2, got the third one from deductoion, because it was the only one I didnt know.
    I know too much about comics, considering I dont really read them.

    @Carl Slaughter: Can I use this question for a quizgame?

  2. Well, since the three correct answers are seven letters each and there are only three characters whose names are seven letters long, it wasn’t exactly a $2,000 Jeopardy question.

  3. Rich Lynch: LOL — if we do this again I will remember to put in some nulls in the answers.

  4. I got 100%. All those years of comic book reading has finally paid off.

  5. Let’s make it interesting…here’s the titles in which the comic book originating characters made their first story appearance, but in alphabetical title order. As it happens, only one debuted in their own title, so I’ve just put Same Named Book for that one. Anyone want to take a shot at matching the titles to the characters?

  6. My wildass guesses (never been a comicbook reader) in rot13 hopefully obfuscated enough to make it less than obvious without decoding….
