Re: General Comics Trivia

14. It's been suggested that this villain might be a figment of a hero's imagination (retcon).
Zombie Master. Fiery Mask might have imagined/lied about him.

5. After becoming a superhero, which former super-villain served time for a murder he committed as a super-villain?
6. In one alternate future this super-villain turned superhero joins the Avengers but this hasn't happened yet on 616/Prime, at least not the true Avengers.
7. Which Archie superhero became a super-villain for a time?
8. Who was manipulated into becoming a super-villain by another super-villain who later reformed, and who was the other character?
9. Who were the first three men to have at some point been believed to have been Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch's fathers?
10. Who was the Monarch revealed to be and who was he originally intended to have been?
11. Which two characters did Green Lantern killed immediately before becoming Parallax?
12. What team was Yellowjacket on when she first appeared?
13. Which superhero turned super-villain used another super-villain's identity as his superhero name?
14. Who had their superhero character erased by Crisis, though it has somewhat been brought back since?

6 Songbird
8 Hawkeye was manipulated by Black Widow
10 Hawk (Hank Hall) and Captain Atom - Hawk being Monarch made zero sense too.

Re: General Comics Trivia

4. the Privateer, Star-Tsar
5. Abner Jenkins, the original Beetle
7. the Hangman
12. the fourth incarnation of the Masters of Evil? (? because she joined in her 2nd appearance)
 

 

5/05/2021 5:21 pm  #642


Re: General Comics Trivia

I may be misremembering with 12 but MoE was definitely her first team. All newer answers correct.

Agreed about Hawk. He and Dove even encountered the Monarch in the one timeline Waverider looked at. And while Hawk arguably has a certain level of combat intelligence, the Monarch was a bit beyond him. Plus his way of talking was way different than the Monarch's. Captain Atom made a lot more sense because he was smarter, and was always crossing moral lines in his own series and others well before the Armageddon 2000 storyline began.
