9/10...just because I didn't know where Tony Stark went to school...

I can name over 250 DC superheroes, but don't know where Iron Man went to f***ing school!

F***!!!!!!! I HATE YOU, TONY STARK!!!!! (I love you, Pepper Potts)

My favorite comic book heroes are, in fact, anti-heroes:Batman and the Punisher. They have both experienced tragedy with their families killed by criminals and they both decided to do something about it. I like that they have to use their own human strengths to fight crime in their respective fashions rather than relying on super powers.

What really drew me to Batman was the psychological factor considering that he had to deal with tradgedy at an early age as well as his rogues gallery. Batman has the best rogues gallery there is.

What drew me to the Punisher is that he puts the "anti" in anti-hero and because he's just plain badass. Criminals are really afraid of Frank Castle because he doesn't throw them in jail. He makes them answer for their crimes by killing them and sending them straight to hell.

I guess my choices say that I like the ingenuity of heroes who have to find aways around their basic human weaknesses. I guess that it also says that I like conflicted and damaged psyches.

Wow, I thought I was going to get torn to shreds by this quiz because I don't read comic books, but this was ridiculously easy. Just watch the movies and the cartoons and you're fine for this.
I thought the exact same thing. But watching all those movies and tv shows really paid off. Do we get a badge for this?

I'm a Punisher man myself. If not Punisher then Spawn. What? I'm a fan of back alley brass tacks law enforcement.

8/10! Wupwup, not bad for me.

Though even more significant, the first time I think I've finished one of these quizzes in under a minute! Huzzah!

"1) Which Marvel Comics franchise was the first to see a remake/reimagining?" I'm probably wrong, but was it Nick Fury? His original incarnation was a standard war comic (Sgt. Fury), before they jumped on the 60s spy-craze (S.H.I.E.L.D.'s name was loosely inspired by "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.").
"2) What food does Deadpool force-feed to vegetarians?" Uh, Ham? It's ham, isn't it? Spam?
"3) What Batman villain was voiced by Star Wars hero Luke Skywalker?" Joker.
"4) Name the Green Lantern's Achilles Heel." Yellow. Or his writers.
"5) TMNT leader Leonardo wields a pair of Katana. These weapons are unique compared to the other Turtle weapons how?" They would have a slash rating in AD&D.
"6) In 1974 a popular King Features Syndicate comic strip was parodied as a porno titled ____________." I have neither a joke, nor a clue on this one. I think the Blondie porno was later.
"7) At the time of its release, the movie-going public was generally unaware that this 1998 vampire film was based on a comic book character. What movie was it?" Blade.
"8) What is the superhero name of character Peter Porker?" Spider-Pig.
"9) Actor Chris Evans is being considered for the role of Captain America, even though he already has a role as a Marvel character (The Human Torch). What other actor has played two different Marvel characters in film?" This probably doesn't count, but Patrick Stewart was both Professor X AND Captain Picard - Marvel had the StarTrek comics licence for a while back in the '90s.
"10) Who is Mysterion?" Drawing a blank.
Wrong on #'s 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 9 (right on technicality, wrong on intention), and 10.

Correct on #'s 3, 4 (both, but the color Yellow was the one I was going for), and 7.

Any other attempts? Wuahahaha!
Sure, I'll give it a go.
I have no clue on #'s 1 & 2.
3 & 4 already guessed correctly
5. his weapons are the only ones with sharp edges
6. Fritz the Cat
7. already guessed correctly
8. Spider-Ham
9. Ryan Reynolds
10. no clue

Yeah...missed the bit about the original X-men cast. I thought it was Angel, i suspect it was Wolverine. Oh well.

Favorite superhero? Deadpool by far, then Iron Man.

10 outta 10 on th'first try! I revel in my dorkside!!!

And i must say my fave comic hero has got to be Batman...but i'm sure i'll catch flak for th'fact of i prefer Dick Grayson over Bruce Wayne....I just relate more t'Dick because he's got all th'skill, but actually HAS a sense of humor....

This is going to sound so very unoriginal, but my favourite DC superhero is, and has always been, Batman. Facing off against the coolest villains; The Joker, Two-face etc. having the coolest gadgets; bat-arangs, bat-mobiles, bat-tanks. There are so many reasons.

My favourite Marvel superhero is Deadpool. He's freakin' hilarious.

I'm late to the party on this one, but I took it anyway. My favorite superhero is Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner),and I have to say this was a very Marvel influenced quiz, so I missed the X-men one.
