**UPDATE: Congrats to birdspawn for being picked as this week's Free Fridays winner! They sent in the correct answer as Aquaman and were randomly picked from the pile of folks that also gave that correct answer. We'll be doing many more of these, so be sure to check back every week for more giveaways!**
 

If this week's Comic Book Cliches quest is any sign, the Comic Vine community knows its stuff. So I'm here to trick you - that's right, I think I may have you folks stumped. How? With a RIDDLE, of course! And what can you win? Well, the comics shown below are part of the prize. But we're also throwing in The Superhero Squad Show, Volume 2! Comics and a DVD. Not bad. Not bad at all. Find the riddle you have to solve below the images. 

All you have to do to be part of the prize drawing is solve the riddle and send me a PM with your answer. Note that if you put the answer in the comments below you get disqualified, and you only have one shot with your answer, so think long and hard on it before PMing me. Everyone is eligible, and you have until Sunday night @ 5pm PST to answer!    
    

The Great Emancipator, coppered and all,

Found himself in a Knight's great hall.

The bats would emerge, the cave would submerge,

settling in it's watery tomb.

A bout of ennui, and this king of the sea,

Would bring the currency back to it's home. 

Want to wear your thinking cap a little longer this weekend? Go check out our sister sites Screened.com   and Tested.com's Free Fridays giveaways!

I prefer the riddle contests. People may think I'm sick when I say that I more take part in these just because I love solving riddles. Prizes are just a bonus to the fun.
 
I do love those Professor Layton games.
 
I've seen some shots from that Batman/Superman comic. The artwork looks pretty good.

@Riezner: 
first time doing this is it six different riddles or are they all related
#11 Posted by danhimself (22553 posts) - - Show Bio

everyone should probably know that they only get one guess so make sure that it counts and good luck

#12 Posted by Riezner (417 posts) - - Show Bio

I emphasize a word in the riddle, which should help you. There is only 1 answer.

Surprised even myself.  O.o 
Not that I'll actually win this blasted thing, but what-evs.

This is my first riddle and I am not sure how to play exactly. Do we have to answer each sentence or answer what the sentences are talking about? 
for example.."This King" 
do I answer who the king is or do I answer what he did? 
 
so confused, but good riddle!

@Mrfuzzynutz:  
I know what it's asking is a bit unclear.
#25 Posted by Lambman (3 posts) - - Show Bio

Is the riddle talking about the giant Penny in the Batcave?

#26 Posted by Eyz (3095 posts) - - Show Bio
