Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The Green Lantern hasn't really had many true sidekicks over the years, but in his early days, he elicited the help of Charles 'Doiby' Dickles, more as comedy relief than anything else. With his first appearance being in "All-American Comics" #27 (June, 1941), who was the Green Lantern at the time?

Answer: Alan Scott

Alan Scott as Green Lantern made his first appearance in "All-American Comics" #16 (July, 1940), so it wasn't long before 'Doiby' Dickles came along. Dickles (nicknamed 'Doiby' for his Derby hat) followed Green Lantern one evening and thought he witnessed a group of thugs kill him. He then dressed up as the Green Lantern himself and confronted the bad guys. The real Green Lantern reappeared and together they defeated the thugs.

Soon afterwards, Alan Scott (as Green Lantern) sent a letter to Doiby, suggesting he could use a good man like Doiby in his fight against evil.
2. Spider-Man is known to be a lone vigilante, but at one point he felt responsible for a young man who was transformed by his 'Parker Particles' during a demonstration at Horizon Labs. What was the real name of Spidey's sidekick, Alpha?

Answer: Andy Maguire

For a while, Peter Parker took Andy under his wing, not only in the scientific world, where he ensured many tests were done to measure the extent of his abilities and what other ways he may have been affected by the particles, but also as a sidekick to Spider-Man. Unfortunately, Alpha's powers were a little difficult to control, at times, resulting in casualties and unexpected destruction.

Alpha had the ability to transform cosmic energy into energy blasts, super strength, super speed, force fields, telekinesis, matter manipulation, and flight... but just one of them at a time.

He made his first appearance in "The Amazing Spider-Man" #692 (August, 2012), and was named as a combination of the two actors that had played Spider-Man in the theaters at the time (Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire).
3. Most people know that Batman's chief lieutenant is Robin. But Robin later adopts what alter ego of his own?

Answer: Nightwing

Batman took in his ward, Dick Grayson, who was the son of a family of acrobats, and whose parents were murdered by a crime boss. Dick then became Batman's chief sidekick, Robin, and the leader of the Teen Titans and Outsiders. Dick/Robin adopts the Nightwing identity when filling in for an injured Batman. Nightwing was associated with Superman, as well.

Nightwing made his first appearance in "Superman" #158 (January, 1963).
4. Woozy Winks is a sidekick, who is not always useful, but very loyal to his superhero. He mostly provides the laughs, although he has his moments of brilliance. Which superhero, also known as Patrick O'Brian, does Woozy Winks try to help out?

Answer: Plastic Man

Plastic Man was first introduced in 1941 by Quality Comics. The character was later taken over by DC Comics. His real name is Patrick O'Brian. He was once a criminal, but during a heist he got a chemical liquid all over him. A monk helped him with his recovery and finding his path to a life fighting crime, after his fellow criminals had knowingly abandoned him.

Plastic Man is aided by his sidekick, Woozy Winks. He is also known as Wolfgang Winks. Woozy is not particularly helpful. He usually provides the laughs in the story. He used to be criminal himself, so he does sometimes provide expert knowledge from his former experience.
5. Before Jubilee joined the teen mutant team Generation X, she was taken in by the X-Men and was particularly close with one of them, with whom she developed a father/daughter style of mentoring relationship. Who was he?

Answer: Wolverine

Jubilation Lee (Jubilee) can create blinding and explosive energy plasmoids, which she calls 'fireworks'. Although raised in a wealthy family, she was sent to an orphanage when her parents were killed. That didn't last, and pretty soon her abilities brought the attention of the X-Men.

Before legitimately joining the team, she actually connected with Wolverine after he had been attacked by Reavers, helping him against them, and many other foes.

Jubilee made her first appearance in "Uncanny X-Men" #244 (May, 1989).
6. Superhero Vigilante was helped by a sidekick called Stuff. His real name was Jimmy Leong. What is the other part of his sidekick name, giving us a clue about his origins?

Answer: The Chinatown Kid

There are many superheroes called Vigilante. The original one's real name was Greg Saunders. Greg used to work as a country singer. His father worked as a sheriff and was killed by a gang. Greg them became Vigilante to avenge his father's death.

One of his sidekicks was Stuff, also known as the Chinatown Kid. His real name was Jimmy Leong. He was very skilled in various martial arts. He was killed twice (after the first time he was once resurrected) in the comics. After his death his brother Victor takes over as the new Chinatown Kid.

Stuff the Chinatown Kid (Jimmy Leong) made his first appearance in "Action Comics" #45 (February, 1942).
7. How did Wonder Woman meet and eventually adopt her younger alter ego, Wonder Girl (a.k.a. Donna Troy)?

Answer: Wonder Woman rescued her from a fire

Wonder Girl made her debut in "The Brave and the Bold" #60 (June/July, 1965) as part of the Teen Titans with sidekicks Robin, Teen Flash, and Aqualad. The backstory of Wonder Woman rescuing a baby from an apartment building fire was established a little further along in her history ("Teen Titans" #22). Wonder Woman took the rescued child to Paradise Island, where she acquired the powers of the Amazons.

She later adopts the name Donna Troy and, later yet, Troia as an adult ("The New Titans" #55).
8. The superhero Human Torch had the sweet girl Mary Mitchell by his side. What positive superhero name does Mary have?

Answer: Sun Girl

The real name for superhero Human Torch is Jim Hammond. He is an android that can burst into flames and control fire. When he learned how to control his abilities, he started his life as a superhero, also working as a police officer.

Mary Mitchell was introduced in the Marvel Comics as the secretary to Jim Hammond. She falls in love with him and eventually becomes his sidekick. Her superhero name is Sun Girl. In later stories she also works on her own or helps other superheroes. Sun Girl is also the superhero name for another character in the Marvel Comics, called Selah Burke in real life.
9. The Tick is a nigh-invulnerable hero whose powers increase as things become more dramatic. Who is his flying-insect-suited sidekick?

Answer: Arthur the Moth

Arthur is an accountant whose white moth suit grants him the ability to fly. He acts as a conscience for the impulsive Tick, and is often the one to figure out what their enemies are up to. His infamous battle cry is "Not in the face! Not in the face!"

The Tick and Arthur both made their debuts in "New England Comics Newsletter" #14 (July/August, 1986).
10. Captain America is one of the original Marvel superheroes. Which of his several sidekicks becomes Captain America II?

Answer: James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes

Introduced in "Captain America Comics" #1 (March, 1941), Bucky Barnes started out as the boy companion of Captain America. With the later publication of the Avengers comic series (#4), Bucky was listed as missing and apparently dead along with Steve Rogers/Captain America during WWII.

Although Rogers was resurrected as Captain America, Bucky was considered dead for a considerable length of time, until he was discovered to be the Winter Soldier, a Soviet weapon ("Captain America", vol. 5). Through the help of Captain America, Bucky is healed/rehabbed and upon the later assassination of Captain America, assumes that mantle.
