And I believe that's used up the remainder of today's allocation for me.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

Those are correct. List updated. if there's anyone on the collage people have been thinking about guessing, now's the time to do so, or else you have to hope they're so obscure that Loki doesn't know them. 19 characters left, so that means you can make 11 wrong guesses and still sweep the board without having to wait until the next day.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

212 is correct. That one's an interesting case, because he's an actual Golden Age superhero who's been largely absent from comics since the 1940s. There are probably a lot of comic book superheroes who have entered the public domain who could be made into decent movies if the right filmmaker was interested.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

I didn't even know there was a Captain Battle movie. I know of the Golden Age character so I recognized the costume. Looking at the picture, I assume that it's similar to the first Captain America movie. And yes, there's plenty of public domain GA characters that could make good movie. The problem is finding good filmmakers and getting a decent budget.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

I didn't know about the movie either until I started doing the research for the collage. Like yourself I knew he was a comic book superhero, so I had a definite "Captain Battle had a live action movie?!?" moment.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

22 I'll give you. Online sources call him Brad rather than Bret but you clearly have the right character. The rest are correct. Tina might at first glance seem like an odd choice for this collage, but she's a woman with powers of the mind who faced down Jason Voorhees. That makes her a superhero to me.

These Nedor characters apparently found neither.

How do you embed a video onto these boards?

One thing I forgot to add earlier: Slim Goodbody actually has his own YouTube channel. Until June 30 original actor John Burstein was posting there daily, including new videos still in costume

I think at this point, to move things along, I'll mention the media for each image. I won't yet say if each image is of a main character or supporting character (though all but two are main characters).
14: Movie
29. Serial
41. Movie
50. Movie
110. TV series
127. TV series
197. TV series
233. Movies
283. Serial
431. Movie

Weird. I didn't do anything to get the button, it was just there for me.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

So the admin has fewer privledges on one regard. Looks like I can get the same result using html coding, using "video". Let me try with one of the Slim Goodbody videos.

I have a vague memory of having seen him perform live when I was younger. Not that that helped me in remembering his name.
I also used to think he and Richard Simmons were the same person.

Me too. I think that happened to a lot of people as both are fitness gurus who back then had similar hairstyles. Plus Slim's non-super identity wore a red jumpsuit not unlike what Simmons sometimes wore.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #19 Independent Live Superheroes/Quasi-S

I feel like giving some actual clues.
14 and 50 are a pair. What's another word for a pair?
29 may be B&W but also a horse of a different colour.
41 is the remaining Troma character
110 is from the same show as a number of other characters already found
127 is a main character but under his alter ego. Like Super Grover, Captain Pureheart, etc his alter ego is a lot more notable than his superhero identity
197's show is from an African country
233's insignia is a clue
283 has the same name as a later Marvel character
431: I'm trying to avoid having things spoiled for myself (her movie sounds interesting) so I'm being careful what I know about her, but she's not the only super-character in her movie
