Haha, that was easy to guess. Marvel only had like three heroes at the time and you had said one.

Anyways on to my question! Who is Wally West slapping in the picture below? HINT: He had his own solo series in the '80s going into the '90s.

@nightcraft: I only remembered because my friends said "If you could have one person in a slap fight, who would it be" and i instantly thought of Flash. Okay, next question.

Why did they change the Shape of Captain Americas Shield to the circle it is now? @veshark you gotta know this one

#165 Posted by Nightcraft (318 posts) - - Show Bio

@funsiized: Because the publishers of the Shield were gonna sue? Back in the '40s, people tried to sue other comics alot, haha.

In real-life it was because they were gonna get sued by MLJ Comics, because the original shield's shape was very similar to the costume of the superhero 'The Shield'.

In the comics it's because America receives some vibranium (after helping Wakanda out in WWII), and metallurgist Myron McLain comes up with an accidental mixture, thus creating the indestructible shield that FDR would present to Cap.

Haha thanks. Alright, since I'm in a Golden Age mood:

In the Marvel Universe, the first man who decided to put on a mask and fight crime carried two revolvers. What was his name - and from whom did he receive his revolvers from?

Good guess but no, Phantom Rider was more of a western hero, this guy was the first legit mask-wearing mystery-man/superhero of the Golden Age (in-universe).

So this is in-universe continuity, not real life timeline? So it's actually Marvel, not Timely?

@veshark: I was looking into some heroes and villains with distinct facial hair patterns (don't ask why) and I stumbled upon another Nazi-fighting hero like Cap and the Invaders. His name was The Angel (or just Angel, I forget) and I know he uses two revolvers. Since where he got them seems to be important, I'd guess some important figure, maybe even another hero gave them to him?

Haha success! I think I'll give this one to you, simply because I doubt anyone else can guess who he got the revolvers from. Angel got his guns from the Two-Gun Kid - one of the most famous Western gunslingers in Marvel continuity.

I am going to ask the question I have been trying to ask for like 3 days now, lol.

Who or what was the first fastball special by Wolverine and Colossus used on?

#184 Edited by Nightcraft (318 posts) - - Show Bio

@emequious_swerve: For Wolverine and Colossus? I have no idea, I just know that it was originally used over in DC first and popularized over in Marvel.

#185 Edited by Emequious_Swerve (1273 posts) - - Show Bio

@nightcraft:

Yeah, so they say. I kind of find it hard for someone to kind of say "hey, our character threw another of our characters first" and take it seriously. It was dubbed "the fastball special" when it appeared in the X-Men.

I believe Wolverine and Colossus threw out their first fastball special on a Sentinel.

No. Banshee was their ally at the time. You were real close, it was a quasi Sentinel they used it on, but I'd prefer if you were more specific.

#191 Posted by Nightcraft (318 posts) - - Show Bio

@emequious_swerve: The first Fastball Special (although not named, like you said) appeared in the late 50's, before either Wolverine or Colossus became a thought. Hell, the X-Men weren't even a thought yet! And Marvel was barely off the ground, haha.

@nightcraft:

Yeah, c'mon though. It wasn't frequently used or anything. Its just basically Superman throwing Robin, its kind of being like "hey, Zorro uses a sword, so every character that uses that kind of sword is kind of a Zorro rip off". You know what I mean?? Anyways, wouldn't Superman throwing Robin shatter everyone bone in his body??

@havenless:

Nope.

Nope, here is a hint. It occurred Uncanny X-Men # 100 and they used it on a sentinel that was impersonating another character.

Nope. X-Men 100 is from 1975, right after the all new, all different team came aboard. Mr Sinister didn't come around until the late 80's
