Yeah I know one and its from a cartoon show version of a comic. I had no idea the character was originally from a comic book.

I can get ten off the top of my head. A few others nag at me, but I can’t place them. Maybe I can guess on one or two…

6. Vesper Fairchild – Batman
7. Bethany Cabe- Ironman
8. Archie Corrigan – With that surname I’m guessing the Spectre
16. Milla Donovan – Daredevil’s wife
17. Terry Berg – Green Latern
18. Marlo Chandler – The Hulk, she used to be Rick Jone’s wife

Fionna Webb- Flash, Barry Allen version.
Vesper Fairchild- Batman
Steve Lombard- Superman
Milla Donovan- Daredevil

Uhh…

I confirm Fiona Webb and Steve Lombard.

Also, Tom Corsi was in New Mutants in the ’80s, and possibly other X-books; he was an instructor at Xavier’s school or a groundskeeper or something. Empath really messed him up.

I feel so lame, the only one I know is Vesper Fairchild being a supporting character in Batman and even then, I have no idea who she was.

Without looking at any of the replies so far, Vesper Fairchild is from Batman and Steve Lombard is from pre-Crisis Superman.

2 out of 20 – Pretty pooer

~P~
P-TOR

1. Fiona Webb — Flash (Barry Allen)
2. Josh Cooper — Spider-Man
3. Peter Spaulding — Machine Man
4. Desiree Winthrop — ?
5. Tom Corsi — X-Men
6. Vesper Fairchild — Batman
7. Bethany Cabe — Iron Man
8. Archie Corrigan — ? (Grr…I should know this one)
9. Frieda Goren — ?
10. Jackie Lukas — Thor/Thunderstrike
11. Bernie Dillon — The Man Called Nova
12. Steve Lombard — Superman
13. Connie Noleski — Flash (Wally West)
14. Olivia Reynolds — Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
15. Jason Ionello — Spider-Man (Untold Tales)
16. Milla Donovan — Daredevil
17. Terry Berg — Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner
18. Marlo Chandler — Hulk and Captain Marvel (Genis)
19. Keith Kincaid — Thor
20. Courtney Duran — ?

I refrained from guessing, and just went with the ones I know or am reasonably sure of:

1. Fiona Webb – Flash
5. Tom Corsi – New Mutants/X-men
6. Vesper Fairchild – Batman
7. Bethany Cabe – Iron Man
9. Frieda Goren – Static
10. Jackie Lukas – Thunderstrike
11. Bernie Dillon – Nova
12. Steve Lombard – Superman
18. Marlo Chandler – Hulk
20. Courtney Duran – Spider-girl

Assuming I’m right, 50% isn’t very high on the geek scale.

8. Archie Corrigan is from the early Madripor Wolverine issues.
As for the other ones, im sad to say I have no idea.

No-peeking or googling answers:
1. The Flash (1st series)
7. Iron Man
9. Static
12. Superman (’70s)
14. Green Lantern
18. Hulk

A lot of these sound familiar, but I can’t place them. 2, 6, and 13 sound especially familiar, and I’ll probably kick myself for not recognizing them.

Just a note on Tom Corsi, long before Empath messed him up, he was a caucasian police officer. I believe he was on watch in a hospital with Sharon Friedlander (sp?) during the New Mutants’s Demon Bear storyline. That durned ol’ bear turned him into a Native American. Presumably since nobody would want him as a Native American, he quit his job as an officer of the peace and became sort of a groundskeeper/gym coach at Xavier’s school. Nothin’ like a demon bear to screw up your life, huh?

4. Desiree Wintrhop -Spider-Man(Ben Reilly)

I knew Vesper Fairchild and Steve Lombard just from reading blogs. Other than that, the only one I knew was Jason Ionello. Are Omar and I the only ones that read Untold Tales of Spider-Man?

wow. this is really hard.

the only ones I can identify are:

4. Desiree Winthrop- Batman I think?
6. Vesper Fairchild- definitly Batman
10. Jackie Lukas-so familiar…damn
12. Steve Lombard-another one that’s very familiar that I cant place
16. Milla Donovan-oh, Daredevil
17. Terry Berg-dang it! I want to say Green Lantern

Steve Lombard I recognized as a football player turned sportscaster for Morgan Edge’s Galaxy Broadcasting/WGBS in 1970s Superman (maybe he made it into the 80s, but since the success of the Chris Reeve/Supes movies resulted in DC sending Clark back to the Planet, maybe not). Even after reading the above, none of the other names are the least bit familiar. I honestly wonder if that’s good or bad, about me I mean.

I think they’ve all been answered.

1. Fiona Webb – Flash
2. Josh Cooper – Captain America
3. Peter Spaulding – Machine Man
4. Desiree Winthrop – Spider-Man (Ben Reilly)
5. Tom Corsi – Uncanny X-Men
6. Vesper Fairchild – Batman
7. Bethany Cabe – Iron Man
8. Archie Corrigan – Wolverine
9. Frieda Goren – Static
10. Jackie Lukas – Thunderstrike
11. Bernie Dillon – The Man Called Nova
12. Steve Lombard – Superman
13. Connie Noleski – Flash
14. Olivia Reynolds – Green Lantern
15. Jason Ionello – Untold Tales of Spider-Man
16. Milla Donovan – Daredevil
17. Terry Berg – Green Lantern
18. Marlo Chandler – Hulk
19. Keith Kincaid – Thor
20. Courtney Duran – Spider-Girl

Hope you had fun!!!
