Who am I?

Postby macathro » Aug 13, 2010 3:30 PM

I thought I'd start this game and see how it goes. I will give you a clue about a comic book character and the first person to guess it correctly will get 5 points. If no one gets it correct after 5 or so guesses, I'll post an additional clue with a -1 point for each clue. For instance, if you get it after three clues, you'll earn 3 points (5-2 additional clues). In order to keep the guesses coming, you are allowed to make multiple guesses. BUT you can only guess once per post and someone else must make a guess before you are able to guess again.

The best part is...these points are worthless right now! :yipeeeee: I'll see how the participation goes and hopefully there will be a monthly prize for the person who accumulates the most points. Right now it is just for bragging rights. :righton:

FIRST CLUE: I made my first appearance fighting Daredevil (but which one :dd: ).

Gladiator - Good guess but incorrect! (Daredevil #18)
Bullseye - While his first appearance was in Daredevil (#131) that guess is also incorrect.
Elektra - Is she a hero or villain? Either way, good guess but also incorrect. (Daredevil #168)
Purple Man - Oh Garry went really old school with that guess (Daredevil #4)! Good one! But also incorrect.

SECOND CLUE: As a social activist corporate big wigs make we want to scream! With the help of alien technology I can now do just that. Now if I can just work on my anger management issues.

With my limited (read that as non-existent) Marvel knowledge, I'd guess at Bullseye :2sad:

Well, there are a lot of DD villains to go (I'm hoping that it's the Marvel DD or I'll be stuck) so I'll guess that it's the Purple Man. :?:

Garry! You are supposed to give someone ELSE a chance to guess before you guess again! :shame:

We have a winner! Garry has earned 4 points for correctly guessing Angar the Screamer! Given his vocal powers through technology brought to Earth from Titan by Moondragon, Angar the Screamer was sent to battle Daredevil & Black Widow in Daredevil #100.

I'll give a bonus point to the first person to give me Angar's first name.

The next Who Am I will follow shortly.

Re: Who am I?

Well, lets start with the next Who Am I!!! :yipeeeee:


FIRST CLUE: I am a member of a DC teen super-hero group (but is that present or future). :dd:

Superboy - That is an obvious choice (first appeared in More Fun Comics #101). It is also incorrect.
Speedy - He is a member of the Teen Titans but that is incorrect (first appeared in More Fun Comics #73) Oh, and all the other guesses are incorrect as well :tongue:
Donna Troy - Wow, everyone's sticking to Teen Titan members! Donna Troy (first appeared in Brave and Bold #60) is incorrect. Good guess though!
Bouncing Boy - Oh so close! First appearing in Action Comics #276, he is a very good guess but it is incorrect!

SECOND CLUE: While I originally joined my "legion" of super-friends under one name, I soon became known by another.

Robin/Nightwing - Great guess Whisp! Unfortunately, that is incorrect. (Robin first appeared in Detective Comics #38, Nightwing in Tales of the Teen Titans #44)
Lightning Lad - First appearing in Adventure Comics #247, Lightning Boy became Lightning Lad in the LoSH's second appearance in Adventure Comics #267. This is a good guess but it is incorrect. :no:
Kid Flash/Impulse - First appearing in the Flash #92 (1994) as Impulse, Bart Allen became Kid Flash in Teen Titans #4 (2003). Another good, but incorrect, guess!
Triplicate Girl/Duo Damsel - First appearing in Action Comics #276, Triplicate Girl became known as Duo Damsel in Adventure Comics #341 after the death of one of her copies. Very sad :(( and also incorrect.

THIRD CLUE: As a one-time leader of the Legion of Super-Heroes, I carried a flame for Dawnstar. It never really worked out due to "physical" intimacy issues. :-O

This is completely from memory, but was it David? I could go looking through my collection as I'm pretty sure I could find it in my Thunderbolts collection from when he had a relationship with Screaming Mimi/Songbird.

Here's a few from the Teen Titans:
Speedy
Wonder Girl
Aquagirl
Aqualad
Kid Flash (Impulse)

I know that's more than one guess but what can I say... :tongue:

For me to get one of these it would be the wildest stroke of luck, but it is fun to read other people's responses.
