Soviets. Not a well-known story.
|What is the name of the residence that the Captain and Professor Calculus live in?|
Marlinspike Hall. Tintin lives in Labrodor Road, but often visits Marlinspike Hall. Professor Calculus actually paid for the expensive property, with the money earned from selling his submarine designed to resemble a shark in 'Red Rackham's Treasure.'
|What is Captain Haddock's first name?|
Archibald. Revealed in 'Tintin and the Picaros,' no wonder he prefers to be known as Captain!
|Who is Tintin's biggest enemy?|

A Goat. 'Is this acting the goat!?' demands Cuthbert angrily to the Captain, pointing to his massive spacerocket that will take them all to the moon...

Blistering barnacles. Another favourite is 'Thundering typhoons'. Tintin says 'Great Snakes.'

Prisoners of the Sun. Universally, probably the most popular Tintin adventure, as he finds himself journeying through the mountains, snow, and rainforest of Peru is his quest to find kidnapped Professer Calculus...
|Who is Tintin's Chinese friend that he meets in 'The Blue Lotus'?|
Chang Chong-chen. He saves Chang from drowning and later travels to Tibet, after his plane crashes in 'Tintin in Tibet.' Thanks for playing!
