Re: General Comics Trivia

Remaining answers:
6. What was the first appearance of the MAX Punisher? I should add the character, regardless of whether be actually used the code name.
Born #1. It was originally intended to be the origin of the 616 Punisher, but due to the sliding timescale and Garth Ennis wanting to keep the Punisher in Vietnam, it proved to be the origin of the MAX version.

7. What was the first appearance of Archie's second Shield?
The Double Life of Private Strong #1

13. Where was the first time that that three non-charter future Defenders were seen teaming up?
I can'[t believe I got away with this one: X-Men #1. Beast, Angel, and Iceman all later joined the Defenders,

14. What was the indicia title of Not Brand Echh #1?
According to Overstreet, Brand Echh (so no Not).

18. Who was the villain seen at the end of The Flash #1 (second series but first to have a #1)?
Vandal Savage

21. Marvel published this one shot of a network's cartoon line-up
America's Best TV Comics #1. If you take out TV, the remainig words start with ABC, the network in question.

Re: General Comics Trivia

12 and 16 are incorrect. though working on the character in 12 likely in part led to Black Lightning. Crimson Plague dealt with similar themes, but the series I'm thinking of came earlier in the decade.The rest are correct. Strtictly speaking Alan was never a member of the Corps but I think readers were generally happy to get new Alan Scott stories and didn't worry about that too much.
