Re: General Comics Trivia

9 is close enough (singular). The rest are correct. Rubberduck is Byrd Rentals, an homage to Burt Reynolds.

Re: General Comics Trivia

Totally unrelated to Andy's questions, just something that came up when I was explaining some comics stuff to a friend who hasn't read comics since he was a kid.

Kind of a six degrees of Kevin Bacon thing - connect Spider-Man to the Patriot (Jeff Mace) ... by family tree. The two are (kind of) related. Can anyone explain the connection?

Re: General Comics Trivia

Sidney was close with 10. The series title was Showcase Presents. That one I would have allowed. The second part was Superman Family. That one I couldn't allow because Showcase Presents: Superman covered Superman himself.

Yep. Or to abbreviate it, Patriot is Thunderbolt Ross' uncle via marriage, Ross is Hulk's father-in-law, Hulk is She-Hulk's cousin, J. Jonah was She-Hulk's father-in-law, J. Jonah is Aunt May's step-son (!!!) and so Peter Parker's cousin. But I do like how you laid it out step by step and then summarised their direct (?) relationship.
