It sure is! Your turn!
Well, I think enough time has passed that I can ask another question, so here it goes:
Marvel's Imperial Guard, as designed by Dave Cockrum, is based on what DC superhero team?
Is it, could it, might it possibly be...the Legion of Super Heroes.?
It might be...it could be...it is!
When Quantum and Woody explained to the readers that "noogie" would be exchanged for the N-word, who was the nicely dressed comic book editor standing beside them?
Is it Fabian Nicezea?
Sorry for the delay.
This should be an easy one. Name three characters or groups from other, non-Image comics universes the Savage Dragon has had official crossovers with. Thinly disguised characters at weddings don't count.
Well, I don't know what constitutes an "official" crossover (like, did it happen in coninuity or not?), so I'll just overcompensate:
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Mirage)
Hellboy (Dark Horse)
Megaton Man (?)
Martians from Mars Attacks (Topps)
You got the ones I was looking for, except for Destroyer Duck.
Overlong explanation follows:
As for official, I just meant adventures officially approved by the owners of both characters, instead of parodies or cameos that Larsen might have thrown in, like people who look suspicously like Batman and Robin showing up at a wedding in one issue. I didn't know it in advance but everyody from Bone to Zot showed up at that wedding. I'm not sure if their cameos should count or not, but I would have accepted them if someone had tried to use them.
Megaton Man is one of Don Simpson's Bizarre Heroes. I really liked that crossover for some reason. The only other one on the list I've read was a Turtles crossover, which I felt derailed the flow of Dragon's ongoing series because it came too early, like in issue two.
Staggeringly easy one here...
In the late parody series "What The...?!", what was the name of Wolverine's cousin, who was brought in to bolster sales in the books Wolvie was too busy to guest star in?
Was that Wolverbunny?
Well, I was thinking of Wolverina, but for all I know you're right too. You're up!
Hehe, thanks man. Okay, here we go:
How did the Pre-Crisis Batman die, and in what comic book did it originally happen?
Do you mean the Earth-2 Batman? Adventure Comics #462.
If not, then my answer would be that the Pre-Crisis Earth-1 Batman didn't die. He had parts of his origin changed as a result of the Crisis, and in my opinion, they weren't changed for the better.
That would be correct Dom. You're up!
Let's go independent this time. In what comic book did Bill Willingham's Elementals make their first appearance?
That would be Justice Machine Annual #1.
Okay, try this one instead: What was the first appearance of the New Teen Titans?
I knew it was a preview in an early DC Comics Presents, but I had to look it up to get that it was in issue #26. Does that count? It was reprinted in one of the first issues of Tales of the Titans, which is where I read it. I think it was all about Robin having some weird flash-forward adventure with the New Teen Titans before he even met the most of them.
I should have known the answer to your Justice Machine question, too, because I have a Justice Machine vs Elementals mini with a text piece about their origins. But even though I read it I couldn't remember the title.
You are correct! Your turn!
