The Who’s Who Trivia Game

So as not to overload this page with trivia questions, during weeks where I do Who’s Who questions I’ll skip OHOTMU trivia, though of course others are welcome to add questions to that thread. This is of course for the DC equivalent series.
Questions this round all relate to the first series.
1. How many issues did the first series last?
2. Entries related to this non-canonical series appear off and on throughout, including the first and last issue.
3. Who drew the Batman I entry?
4. Who was the first character (as opposed to team) to get a two-page entry?
5. Who appeared in the beginning of the series (the first entry)?
6. Who was the first entry in #2?
7. Whose Marital Status was listed as Incompatible?
8. The final issue did a brief second sweep of the alphabet. What was the first entry after the letter Z?
9. Which entry was drawn by Fred Hembeck?
10. Which member of the Zoo Crew got a ½-pager instead of a full page?
11. Under what entry can you find the Daily Planet’s best known photographer?
12. How were the inside back covers used?
13. Who penciled the Demon entry?
14. Which hero team that got an entry had two Kryptonians, both male? Full team, not just a duo.
15. Which entry immediately followed Forgotten Heroes?

All those are correct.

Who's Who was originally supposed to be 24 issues, but they ran out of space and needed an extra two issues, with the last one doing a second run through the alphabet. Of course we would never see another reference series also run over by two with a second run through the alphabet in the last book; the odds against that happening twice would be ridiculously low.

With Abel, I deliberately wrote "in the beginning" as a reference to Genesis, since he's generally considered to be the Biblical Abel.

Elastic Lad is of course Jimmy Olsen, but he was indeed profiled under his occasionally used heroic name.

The specific two Legion of Super Pets members from Krypton are Krypto the Super-Dog and Beppo the Super-Monkey.

Legion of Super Pets?

Re: The Who’s Who Trivia Game

4. Correct. Both issues were in a Gitcorp DVD-ROM that collected all US Star Trek comics from any publisher up to a little before the DVD-ROM came out.

7. Incorrect.  If memory serves the Legion of Super-Pets had no fixed headquarters and just showed up together as emergencies required.

Re: The Who’s Who Trivia Game

Remaining answers:

Revised

3. For which profile in the looseleaf series were there none of the usual stats? And what was written instead? [Death correctly answered, but quote still up for grabs)
One day you'll meet her. You can find out for yourself. I would have accepted any answer that was close to that effect.

5. Who drew Proty for Who's Who in the Legion?
Mark Waid, not normally known for drawing characters

6. For the original series, who drew Turtle Man?
Peter Laird, co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

7. What animal team (beyond just humans/humanoids) had an entry for their headquarters?
Zoo Crew, all anthropomorphic animals. Hope the humanoid didn't throw people off; I meant characters like Superman who look human and are animals of sort but aren't true humans.

11. For the looseleaf Who's Who, who drew Kanjar Ro?
Tim Bradstreet. I liked his art on the entry, but he was embarrassed when I asked him to autograph the sheet.

13. What colour was the background to the cover of Update '88 #1?
Blue

14. Which two characters in the first issue of the first series had separate stats but shared the same image?
Aquagirl and Aqualad, who were a couple.

15. In which Who's Who series can you find a character whose real name is Hit Coffee?
!mpact Who's Who

11. Which Bat character in first series #2 had no significant connection to Batman?

Re: The Who’s Who Trivia Game

1-4 are correct.
5. Correct, but I forgot to add a caveat that I was thinking among people in the first series and overlooked that one. There is a kind of, sort of, barely partial entry for him in the original series. Can you guess? And this character is in fact the Earth-1 Superman, whereas the Pocket Universe Superboy's history eventually diverges.
7-8 are correct
11. Correct. I think they may have encountered each other in an issue of Justice League, which is what I hedged my bets on the phrasing of the question.
13. Correct.
14. Incorrect. Congo Bill first appeared in More Fun Comics #56 (June 1940), by which point a lot of early recurring DC characters had already appeared, including a few in Who's Who.\
15. Correct

Doctor Occult.

Correct. Doctor Occult first appeared in New Fun #6 (October 1935), just under three years before Superman, Tex Thomspon (who received an entry under Mr. America) and Zatara first appeared in Action Comics #1. His initial Who's Who entry actually came out just before he started appearing in All-Star Squadron, making the Who's Who entry the first time he had been seen in around 47 years. Fortunately he's continued to make appearances since and seems in no danger of being mothballed for another half century.

5.  Ah, I think I get it: The original Nightwing of Kandor's Nightwing & Flamebird duo.

Re: The Who’s Who Trivia Game

5. Correct; there aren't many stats for him, but you do get a few things like his first appearance as Nightwing, so sadly that's the closest the adult Earth-1 Superman ever got to an entry. And even that's better than Earth-1 Wonder Woman. It's curious that the Earth-1 versions of Superman and Wonder Woman were off limits due to how Crisis ended but their Earth-2 counterparts made it in.

9. Is incorrect, though he wrote a lot of profiles. I think he wrote all the profiles for the first issue of the never seen 2011 series before it was cancelled.
10 and 12 are both correct.
