Re: The OHOTMU Trivia Game

2-4 are correct (the Vision error is possibly one that a No-Prize could be made from since Doctor Pym is arguably Vision's grandfather).

For 7, assuming you mean 8 and Alternate Universes 2005, that's still incorrect for volume, but the profile itself is correct. That was one of the Handbooks where profiles were limited to a page so the profiles didn't have room for that kind of depth.

Re: The OHOTMU Trivia Game

Those are all mostly correct, though at the time of Heroic Age, Steve Rogers (who I'm pretty sure you meant) wasn't using the Captain America identity. That was in his Steve Rogers: Super Soldider period.

Re: The OHOTMU Trivia Game

7 I'm thinking Venom and Anti-Venom - at the time of the hardcovers Flash was the former and Brock the latter, and by King in Black they'd swapped.

Re: The OHOTMU Trivia Game

7 is correct.

8. What was the 2nd Guidebook hardcover sub-titled and what did it cover?
9 is correct
12. Heroes and Villains are correct. Mutants is incorrect but close.
15 is incorrect.

Re: The OHOTMU Trivia Game

8 is correct, but I'm really screwing up this question. Actually meant the third one. I'll just drop this question now because it's probably now pretty obvious which book and what the contents are.
12 is correct.
