Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which superhero famously has no super powers, and relies instead on his skills, wit, and family fortune to fight crime?

Answer: Batman

Bruce Wayne, better known as Batman, first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939, and received his own spin-off comic line the following year. Orphaned as a kid, he is the heir to Wayne Enterprises, which has made him rich and well-connected. Since his first appearance, Batman has appeared in numerous comics, television series, movies, and toylines.

While he lacks the powers that most superheros have, he compensates for that with his physical strength, sharp mind, numerous skills, access to technology, and gadgets, while being supported by his family fortune.

2. Which large marine mammal connects a song by The Beatles and a poem by Lewis Carroll?

Answer: Walrus

Walruses are one of the largest pinnipeds, with only two species of elephant seals exceeding them in size. They are easily recognisable by their tusks and long drooping whiskers. Walruses are native to the Northern hemisphere and typically live in arctic and sub-arctic regions.

The poem 'The Walrus And The Carpenter' appeared in Lewis Carroll's 1871 sequel to 'Alice's Adventures In Wonderland' which was entitled 'Through The Looking-Glass, And What Alice Found There'. 'I Am The Walrus' was taken from The Beatles' double EP 'Magical Mystery Tour' and was also the B-side to the single 'Hello, Goodbye'.
