Re: General Comics Trivia

1 is correct. 13 is close enough (Rufferto). 18 is incorrect as the question goes beyond year one. The series I'm thinking of has the heroes looking back on past adventures.

Re: General Comics Trivia

3-4 are correct.
6 may seem like the right answer given their rivalry, but a closer examination reveals that Stan was likely taking a shot at a different company that was more directly swiping their style.
14 and 20 are correct.

Re: General Comics Trivia

1 is incorrect. It was his daughter Zatanna who first appeared there.
2 is correct (in dream sequence preceding New Teen Titans #).
5-10 are correct. 6:Comics such as Mighty Comics had the corner boxes on the covers and writing that attempted to imitate Lee.
11 is close enough: Duo Damsel
12-13. 16, 18 are correct. Believe it or not 13 was just a coincidence. I wasn't paying much attention to the numbering beyond making sure there were 20 questions. Maybe my sub-conscious?

Re: General Comics Trivia

I've been rereading the "New" X-Men stories from Essential X-Men (and in a few cases reading a few that I'd missed), so while it's fresh in my mind, this quiz is that era 1974-1981, arguably the peak period, though there were certain great stories to come.

1. What was Thunderbird's nickname for Cyclops?
2. During the first time in this range that Phoenix was believed dead by the X-Men, though readers knew otherwise, who else did the team believe to be dead?
3. Who wanted to date Cyclops during the period in q.2?
4. Who was Kitty Pryde initially afraid of the most.
5. Banshee lost his powers for a time during a clash with which villain?
6. Which member of the team was most skilled at getting out of locks?
7. After Phoenix seemingly died for real, who was the first woman to want to date Cyclops?
8. Who killed the father of the woman in q.7?
9. What contradictory bit of information were the readers given about Mastermind?
10. In the earliest issues of this era, one member of the team was overly protective of another team member. Who was overly protective of whom?
11. When Wolverine decided to make nice with Vindicator, who joined him, who was with Vindicator, and who did the four of them fight?
12. As far was was known at the time, which member of the original time, which member of the original X-Men did not participate in the battle on the Blue Area of the Moon?
13. Who ejected whom from a structure in the battle in q.12?
14. What sort of creatures aided Nightcrawler at Cassidy Keep and who were the opponents?
15. Which villain came closest to assassinating Robert Kelley and who stopped them?
16. What were the original X-Men imposters created by Steven Lang called?
17. Other original X-men imposters were created by whose subconscious?
18. Who brainwashed Polaris and Havok for a time?
19. Who battled a monster alone as the X-Mansion
20. Which two future X-Men aided the then active X-Men in their first fight against the Hellfire Club?

Re: General Comics Trivia

Those are correct. For 3 I see it as a bit ambiguous: Cyclops, who can be a bit clueless at times seems to see them as just friends hanging out, at least so he said when Jean turned up alive.

What's interesting about 10 is that "Jason as alias" was told by the narrator while "Jason as real name" was in Cyclops' thoughts right after jeanh's suicide. So had other Wyngardes not subsequently turned up, the discrepancy could have been explained by Cyclops doing a rushed checked while grieving.

That leaves:

10. In the earliest issues of this era, one member of the team was overly protective of another team member. Who was overly protective of whom?

Re: General Comics Trivia

Much to her annoyance, in the initial stories, Colossus was always trying to protect Storm.

I think instead of doing two trivia things a week I'll switch to just one unless I come up with 15 or more questions I really have to ask beyond the other weekly quiz.
