Re: General Comics Trivia

Those are all correct, with Helmut being the Zemo with the unfortunate mask problem. Born was originally supposed to be the origin of the 616/Prime Punisher but ended up being the first appearance of the MAX version so Garth Ennis could ignore the sliding timescale.

Re: General Comics Trivia

Sidney and Loki's answers are all correct. The Brother Voodoo story, aside from the rape aspect, was also unusual in that Hembeck drew it in a serious rather than cartoony style.

Re: General Comics Trivia

6 is correct. Remaining answers:
7.Which super-villain’s real name (which may or may not begin with B) comes very close to a retail chain that sells groceries, etc)? Each has one letter that the other doesn’t.
Boomerang. Real name Fred Myers, which sounds really close to Fred Meyer

8.Which superhero sometimes appeared in Go Go Comics?
Blooperman

16.This Marvel mini-series had two imposters, though one was not revealed to be an imposter during the mini-series
Beyond! Beyonder was revealed to be the Stranger in the story, while Hank Pym was later revealed to be Criti Nol. Going from memory, I think the latter was hinted at but not actually stated

20.Who ran afoul of Mrs. Gofooey during the Crisis on Infinite Earths?
Bat Lash (because of a matter between him and her daughter)

Bonus question:  Which two characters from #7 have been announced to be in the film "The Suicide Squad," and what was their relationship to each other in #7?

(I thought I'd answer some of the harder ones and give others a chance to answer the rest.)

Re: General Comics Trivia

Those are correct (both replies; I missed Loki's reply the first time due to near simultaneous replying). I haven't been reading much of the advance news on the upcoming movie so will leave the bonus question for others.

Re: General Comics Trivia

All those are correct. American Scream from the Vertigo series showed up in the Spectre series written by one of the writers in q.13, so it does appear to have been canon in that era
