Not much, but better than I expected to do, and very nice to see a new quiz, Brian. Thanks. Let’s check out the others.

I thought about Nightcrawler as soon as I read the base question, but didn’t recognize anything on the list as him. Should have figured out Nightman, though. And as for MJ’s thinking that #13 might be “Lass” instead of “Girl,” I just checked my ADVENTURE digest reprints and there, at least, it is “Girl.”

without looking at everyone else’s answers:

1. Superman took this identity to fight crime in Kandor. Nightwing

3. This former Charlton heroine was a member of the Suicide Squad. Nightshade

6. A mid-90s Marvel slight parody of Spawn who ended up being popular enough to get his own maxi-series in the 90s. Nighttrasher?

11. A team led by Baron Winters. Shoot, I know this one. Marv Wolfman wrote it. Damn.

18. Former leader of the New Warriors. Is that Nighttrasher?

1. Nightwing
2. Nightcrawler
3. Nightshade
4. Night Shift?
5. Night-Slayer
6. Nightwatch
7. Night Rider
8. NightMan
9. Nightmare
10. Nightshade?
11. Night Force
12. NightStalkers
13. Night Girl
14. Night Cadre Member?
15. Nightline
16. Night Phantom?
17. Night Nurse
18. Night Thrasher
19. Nightside
20. Night Ninja?

2. Had long relationship with his stewardess stepsister…which no one seemed to have a problem with, oddly enough.

This could also be Night-Slayer, an old Batman foe from Detective Comics.

I can’t believe so few people knew Nightcrawler. Oh well, if I hadn’t read one of those Essentials volumes recently, I never would’ve known Amanda Sefton was his stepsister. Was it only mentioned the one time?
