Correct, and I would have to agree it was pretty terrible, and probably rushed. The Zoo Crew bit is a good case in point: The Captain Carrot mini had to be wrapped up in a certain way to allow then to be used in Final Crisis, but it's clear from how little they were used that there was a charge of plans once things were already in play. Had there been the realization sooner that they didn't really fit into the story, the Captain Carrot mini could have had a better ending, and you could have tightened up Final Crisis by leaving such extraneous stuff out entirely.

Bump. I'll give this one another 24 hours or so.

The fourth nephew is Phooey. He originated because artists would occasionally mistakenly draw in a fourth duck among the nephews in instances where that fourth young duck could not be explained away as being (for example) just a pal of the known trio. Since he was a mistake, people began jokingly referring to him as Phooey - as in "So, Mr. Artist, can you name me the three nephews in the picture you've just drawn"; "Sure. That's Huey, that's Dewey, that's Louie, and that's....oh. Phooey." His first (accidental) appearance was allegedly the 1959 story "Mastering the Matterhorn"; as he accumulated more appearances, artists began adding him deliberately as an in-joke, until the 1999 Danish Disney story "Much Ado About Phooey" provided an explanation for him, confirming that he randomly pops in and out of existence. 
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/scrooge-mcduck/images/0/03/Much_Ado_About_Phooey.png/revision/latest?cb=20190706115120

In 2019 the American Disney cartoons finally acknowledged his existence when the Duck Tales episode "Whatever happened to Donald Duck?" name checked him, though he didn't actually appear until the episode "A Nightmare on Killmotor Hill."

Quick challenge - what's unusual about this Marvel UK cover?

8/07/2020 5:55 am  #128


Re: General Comics Trivia

Here are the answers for the previous round of questions. Next round will be an easier challenge hopefully.

1. Where did the Zoo Crew first appear, albeit most of them in cameo?
The preview in New Teen Titans #16; most of the team appeared on the last page.

2. How specifically did Captain Carrot’s powers work differently than those of his teammates? [His original teammates I mean]
The meteorite powered his carrot patch, not him, so he had to consume carrots to gain powers temporarily; for his teammates the powers were permanent.

3. What is the full real name of Captain Carrot?
Roger Rodney Rabbit. Originally called Roger Rabbit, then later more often referred to as Rodney Rabbit apparently to avoid confusion with the other Roger Rabbit. To give a sense of timeline, the other Roger Rabbit first appeared in the novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit in 1981; Captain Carrot appeared in cover date February 1982, so he almost for sure also debuted in 1981; probably the prose version came out first but there's a chance that Captain Carrot barely came out sooner), then the more familiar to the public movie version (based on the novel version but heavily modified) came out in 1988.

4. What is the real name of Rubberduck and who is he based on?
Byrd Rentals/actor Burt Reynolds

5. What is the real name of Yankee Poodle and who is she based on?
Rova Barkitt/gossip columnist Rona Barrett

6. Who was the first super-villain that the Zoo Crew faced?
Starro the Conqueror, in the above preview then the first issue of the ongoing.

7. Who was the first human to team with the Zoo Crew?
Superman, same as above

8. Who was the second human to team with the Zoo Crew?
Changeling, in the firnal story of the ongoing

9. What two Earth designations have been given to the Zoo Crew's world?
Normally Earth-C; during the time when DC had exactly 52 Earths, around the start of that company's strange obsession with that number, it was re-designated Earth-26.

10. Which other animal team did the Zoo Crew team with and what is their Earth designation?
Just'a Lotta Animals; Earth-C-Minus; IIRC Eahrt-C-Minus was not given a second designation when they reappeared during the 52 Earths era.

11. Who is the team’s most recent member?
American Eagle

12. What was the first mini-series devoted to the team?
Oz-Wonderland War

13. What was the second mini-series devoted to the team?
Captain Carrot and the Final Ark

14. What was the entire 1980s run, including the first mini-series collected as?
Showcase Presents: Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew

15. What member of the team is related to another superhero?
Fastback is the nephew of the Terrific Whatzit from the previous quiz.

16. In the first Zoo Crew mini-series, who called it a “guarded pleasure” to meet another character?
Dorothy Gale (to the Red Queen)

17. What is the name of the Zoo Crew’s headquarters?
The Z-Building (just as Titans Tower is T-shaped, the Z-Building is Z-shaped).

19. Which artist drew their earliest adventures and their most recent mini-series?
Scott Shaw!

20. One story was an homage to which movie?
Cannonball Run

Re: General Comics Trivia

Crossing over with the TV Trivia, this one is devoted to the easier topic of Spider-Man. Questkions refer to 616/Prime Spider-Man unless the question makes it obvious to the contrary.

1. What did Easy Reader claim on the covers of Spidey Super-Stories?

4. Who was Spider-Man's co-star in the earliest issues of  Marvel Team-Up?

5. Who was the first super-villain to face Spider-Man, as opposed to a garden variety criminal, regardless of impact on his life? I don't think there's been any retcons here, but if so, ignore them.

6.Which supporting cast member was murdered in Spider-Man vs. Wolverine?

7. What supporting cast member is it heavily implied that Spider-Man accidentally killed, albeit with very good intentions?

8. Which superhero was a recurring ally in early issues of Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man?

9. Which member of the X-Men did "Ultimate" Spider-Man date?

10. For a time Spider-Man had a mutual dislike of this member of the Avengers (the latter was already a member of the Avengers upon first encountering Spider-Man)

11. Around the same that the 616 version married Mary Jane, which other version did the same? (description okay; no need to hunt down the Earth number; not counting the real world publicity stunt)

12. In Giant Size Super Heroes #1, Spider-Man shared an adventure with someone else with their own title, but didn't actually encounter them. Who?

13. Who did Spider-Man stop Scourge from killing?

14. One issue of Marvel Tales had dialogue changed to have Aunt May express an interest in which then more recent series?

15. Which super-villain had a role in Spider-Man's parents' death?

16. While we may never know exactly why Steve Ditko left Spider-Man, which common urban legend about his leaving has been debunked?

17. Who was Spider-Man's foe in Web of Spider-Man #1?

18. While never confirmed, what is likely the Burglar's last name?

19. Where did Spider-Man encounter the Chief Examiner (exact issue)?

20. Which drink mix character teamed with Spider-Man (possibly not 616)?

Carradine, and no, it's not likely that it's his last name. While we've never learned his surname, Peter Parker doubtless would know it, and yet he was surprised to learn that Jessica Carradine was the Burglar's daughter. I'd lay better odds that his daughter changed her surname, and the Burglar is Costas, like his apparent nephew.

Re: General Comics Trivia

Most of those are correct (thx for the clarification regarding the Burglar). However, 12 is Incorrect.

With 7, although the Goblin knocked her off the bridge, a courtroom jury would likely rule that when Spider-Man intervened, he became the murderer when he shot a webline at her and her neck snapped.

Re: General Comics Trivia

I suspect this isn't the answer, but it's interesting that it says Avengers Starring Shang-Chi, and Shang-Chi later did join the Avengers. And that one green suit kind of resembles Rogue's first costume coincidentally.

Nope, and though the suit was recolored from the original version for this cover, nope, that's not what I was looking for. Answer later today.

Okay, original cover to compare with. As you can see, the colors of his opponents' outfits has changed, and the dialogue was tweaked. There's something else they altered, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Flash Thompson, who was being held without bail for the Hobgoblin crimes.

16. While we may never know exactly why Steve Ditko left Spider-Man, which common urban legend about his leaving has been debunked?
Some people believe he didn't like that the Green Goblin was going to be an established character. He actually liked that idea and may have even suggested it.

Re: General Comics Trivia

The questions below relate to the Fawcett/DC Captain Marvel and his family/foes. All questions are pre-New 52 so any answer that results in the Captain himself being called Shazam will be incorrect. Questions are Pre-Crisis unless the wording says otherwise.
 
1. Aside from being that word that transforms Billy Batson into Captain Marvel, Shazam is the name of who?
2. What are the real names of the Lieutenant Marvel (include nicknames)?
3. What ailment did Dudley claim prevented him from using his (non-existent) powers and under what code name?
4. What mystical location was the most frequently visited by Captain Marvel?
5. What was Mary Marvel’s real name prior to learning she was Billy’s sister?
6. How many stories did Black Adam appear in the Fawcett era (full stories, not passing references if any)?
7. Although retconned away less than a decade later, which mini-series initially detailed the origin of the Post-Crisis Captain Marvel?
8. Which graphic novel erased the continuity of the previous question?
9. What was the final appearance of the Pre-Crisis Captain Marvel (as active participant; ignore any quick glimpses in Hypertime or similar things that may have occurred since)?
10. What is Dr. Sivana’s full name?
11. Which storyline, despite being collected in the past, had a new collection cancelled recently due to racist elements?
12. Which artist is most associated with the Fawcett era Captain Marvel?
13. Which Captain Marvel ally couldn’t identify himself without transforming and how was that addressed in the 1990s series?
14. Which villain’s lawyer refused to defend him after hearing Captain Marvel’s testimony?
15. Which Earth-1 villain did Captain Marvel face in the 1970s Shazam! comic series?
16. Pre-Crisis, what Earth was Captain Marvel on?
17. Name all of Sivana’s offspring Pre-Crisis.
18. Who is Captain Marvel’s feline friend?
19. SHAZAM is also an acronym for people (often deities) who provide/enhance traits in the Marvel Family and a few others such as Black Adam and Marvel Bunny, though different people are used for different Marvels.  For Captain Marvel (and I think also the Lieutenant Marvels), who is the S and what trait do they provide/enhance?
20. What was Captain Marvel’s first appearance?

Re: General Comics Trivia

1. Correct
7. Incorrect
11. Close enough since I know what you are getting at: The Monster Society of Evil storyline featuring Mr. Mind.
12. Correct
16. Correct
19. Correct. Trick question there since Solomon wasn't a deity, but he is indeed the S
20. I can't quite give you that one. There was no Whiz Comics #1, and Fawcett's ashcan Flash Comics #1, not to be confused with All-American's Flash Comics #1, was strictly speaking the first appearance of Captain Thunder rather than Captain Marvel. though their origins and looks are identical. Flash Comics #1 was also limited to only eight copies (though other copies exist under a different name, which I'll save for a later quiz). So another comic is generally considered the true first appearance of Captain Marvel.

Re: General Comics Trivia

Holey Moley, a lot of the questions are still on the board. Sorry, this was suppose to have been a relatively easy quiz, with a few touch questions thrown in. Calling a day on the following (see initial post for caveats):

2. What are the real names of the Lieutenant Marvel (include nicknames)?
3. What ailment did Dudley claim prevented him from using his (non-existent) powers and under what code name?
4. What mystical location was the most frequently visited by Captain Marvel?
5. What was Mary Marvel’s real name prior to learning she was Billy’s sister?
6. How many stories did Black Adam appear in the Fawcett era (full stories, not passing references if any)?

Re: General Comics Trivia

2) All were Billy Batson Tall Marvel, Fat Marvel and Hill or Hill Billy Marvel.
4) Rock of Eternity or Train/Subwaty Tunnel.
5) Mary Bromfield
10) Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana
13 Freedy Freeman/Captain Marvel, Jr who shortened his name to CM3.
18) Tawky Tawny

 

8/20/2020 8:15 am  #148


Re: General Comics Trivia

Those are correct. More:
For #1 I believe their nicknames were also used with their real names, e.g. Tall Billy Batson
For #4 I was specifically thinking of the Rock. Sometimes they fly to the Rock directly without going through the tunnel system, e.g. when they are using it to time travel.
13. Freddy transforms by saying "Captain Marvel". In the 1990s run he never used Captain Marvel Jr. as a code name. The CM3 refers to Billy and Mary both using the Captain Marvel code name at the time, making him the third Captain Marvel.
18. His name is sometimes hyphenated, and he is also called Mr. Tawny or Mr. Tawky Tawny; he is specifically a tiger.

Re: General Comics Trivia

3. What ailment did Dudley claim prevented him from using his (non-existent) powers and under what code name?
Shazambago; Uncle Marvel

6. How many stories did Black Adam appear in the Fawcett era (full stories, not passing references if any)?
One; he died in his first appearance.

7. Although retconned away less than a decade later, which mini-series initially detailed the origin of the Post-Crisis Captain Marvel?
Shazam! The New Beginning

8. Which graphic novel erased the continuity of the previous question?
Power of Shazam! So that was the name of the graphic novel and subsequent ongoing series, not the limited series

9. What was the final appearance of the Pre-Crisis Captain Marvel (as active participant; ignore any quick glimpses in Hypertime or similar things that may have occurred since)?
Secret Origins #3; for a time Secret Origins occasionally covered the origins of Golden Age characters who had been erased from existence by the Crisis

14. Which villain’s lawyer refused to defend him after hearing Captain Marvel’s testimony?
Mister Mind; this case should have actually been tied up in courts for years as Mr. Mind is an extra-terrestrial and not a human. Furthermore, his lawyer refusing to defend him based on testimony from a witness should have gotten the lawyer charged with contempt of court, and potentially a mistrial could have been declared.

15. Which Earth-1 villain did Captain Marvel face in the 1970s Shazam! comic series?
Lex Luthor

17. Name all of Sivana’s offspring Pre-Crisis.
Beautia, Magnificus, Sivana Jr., Georgia; he may be one off comics' creepiest looking villains but evidently he has something going for him.

20. What was Captain Marvel’s first appearance?
Here's why I couldn't accept the previous answer: the first widespread published appearance of Captain Marvel, as opposed to appearances as Captain Thunder in "ashcan" comics sent to a very limited audience was Whiz Comics #2 not 1. So the ashcans apparently constituted the first issue even though only a few people saw them, and even though names were changed for the mass-distributed series, making Whiz Comics #2 where the general public was concerned the first issue.

Re: General Comics Trivia

This quiz is devoted to Doctor Doom. Due to the nature of the character, some of these questions attributed to him may be unrevealed appearances of a Doombot.
1. For what series was Doctor Doom the lead character in some stories?
2. Who was most often his co-star in Super-Villain Team-Up?
3. Which miniature town did Doctor Doom once trap the Fantastic Four in?
4. Which villain was it for a time speculated that Doom might either be related to or actually be?
5. Which character may or may not be Doctor Doom in the future?
6. According to a Secret Wars toy ad, what did Doctor Doom want to make the Earth? I’ll count the answer right even if you get the number of o’s wrong.
7. Who was the first character with the Power Cosmic to have their power stolen by Doctor Doom?
8. Whose power did Doctor Doom steal during the first Secret Wars?
9. Which superhero went after Doctor Doom for defaulting on a payment?
10. A long time goal of Doctor Doom was to rescue his mother from where?
11. Doctor Doom briefly assumed which hero’s mantle (not including mind transfers)?
12. Doctor Doom was for a time a member of which team on the side of good?
13. Doctor Doom teamed with which DC villain in the second Spider-Man/Superman crossover?
14. Which alien race gave him the ability to mind transfer?
15.  Doctor Doom’s country of Latveria, on the map of the Marvel Atlas can be found where part of which country is in the real world?
16. Other than Doctor Doom’s robots, who believed himself to be Doctor Doom for a time?
17. One of Doctor Doom’s robots worked with whom against the X-Men?
18. What has been heavily implied to be the extent of the damage to his face due to the university explosion he blames Reed Richards for?
19. The Fantastic Four’s first encounter with Doctor Doom connected the Thing to whose legend?
20. Which organization went after Doctor Doom for defaulting on a payment, though apparently in this instance it was not intentional on Doom’s part?
EDIT: Overlooked a question I really wanted to ask:
21. Whose "offspring" once infested Doctor Doom's armour?
