Answers to the Superhero Silhouette Quiz

SilhouetteAnswersLast week I posted a series of silhouettes and asked you to try and identify the hero or villain. This week we have the answers. Here they are from left to right:

Top row: Wolverine, Galactus, Mr. Freeze, Harley Quinn, Havok
Second Row: Hellboy, Beast, Big Barda, Savage Dragon, Flash
Third row: Mysterio, Black Bolt, Hawkman, Electro, Scarlket Witch
Fourth row: Captain America, Catwoman, Judge Dredd, High Evolutionary, Thor

How many of them did you get right?

I will be honest that this probably was a lot harder than the emblem quiz. I ran it by a couple of my friends and none of them got 100%. The problem is that there are a number of characters that could easily pass for each other in silhouette form. There are some of the obvious cases where two characters wear a variation of the same uniform – think Captain America and US Agent or are intentionally meant to look almost the same like the Flash and Professor Zoom. But there are other characters who just kind of look the same. In silhouette Mr. Fantastic and the Elongated Man are practically indistinguishable.

How about the original Marvel Girl of the X-Men and the Scarlet Witch?┬áThat doesn’t even get into how hard it is to find a female hero who isn’t just a variation on a domino mask and long flowing hair. Is this a bad thing? Let’s face it, Havok and Electro have very distinctive profiles but they do look a little silly. What are your thoughts?

Another Superhero Quiz

SilhouetteQuiz Since my superhero quiz continues to be wildly popular I decided to make another one. I built this one a little differently, though. Instead of looking at logos and trying to decide who they belong to, this time around I have a series of silhouettes and you try to guess the hero or villain. I tried to go with some of the more distinctive silhouettes out there. (It wouldn’t be any fun trying to guess between Mr. Fantastic and The Elongated Man for instance.) I have characters from a number of different companies and there are even some women in the mix. Some of these are fairly simple, but you will need to be pretty good to get them all.

Have at it and see if you can guess all of them before I put the answers up next week!
