Comic Book Six Degrees: Jon Sable to Dominic Fortune

I name two comic book characters. You then have to connect the two using only shared appearances in comic books (official appearances in comics only – no cameos like Terry Austin sneaking Popeye into the background of a panel and no outside comic book appearances, like cartoons and the like). You have to do so using less than six comics total. Covers and pin-ups do not count – only actual appearances in the same comic book story (so it doesn’t count if they each appeared in separate stories inside the same anthology). Mythological characters and real people are unique to their own comic book appearances (so DC’s Thor is different than Marvel’s Thor, DC’s Ronald Reagan is different from Marvel’s Ronald Reagan, etc.). But a licensed character is the same in all of their various comic book companies (so the Marvel Red Sonja is the same as the Dynamite Red Sonja) and approved appearances by a real person can go across comic book companies, as well (so, for instance, you can use Marv Wolfman from his Teen Titans appearance to connect with Marv Wolfman in his Fantastic Four appearance).

Every week, whoever connects the two characters in the least amount of turns gets to pick the next week’s match- (in the event of a tie, the winner is chosen randomly). Last week was Here Zero to 22 Brides. Eric Henry got the connection done in four turns. Here is how Eric connected the two characters:

Hero Zero was in Godzilla vs. Hero Zero with Godzilla
Godzilla was in Godzilla #23 (Marvel Comics) with Thor
Thor was in Ultraforce / Avengers with Ash
Ash was in Ash / 22 Brides with the 22 Brides

Eric’s challenge is…

Whoever connects the two characters in the least amount of comics gets to pick the connection for next time around (I’ll pick a random winner in the event of a tie)!

Remember, only authorized appearances in comic books count (for instance, Wolverine in Gen13 #13 does not count)!


Actually last week’s challenge was Hero Zero to 22 Brides.

This week’s challenge has me Chaykin in my boots!

I’d never had gotten last week’s because I’m not familiar with Hero Zero or 22 Brides (or Ash, unless it’s the one from Evil Dead), but the fact that Godzilla was used as a connection makes me happy.

Ash was the Quesada/Palmiotti book from Event Comics from before Joey Q was involved with Marvel Knights, that wasn’t Painkiller Jane. He was a firefighter turned superhero. I’m just glad the solution didn’t involve Kid Death and Fluffy.

I might look into this one, because there’s a semi-recent book that just begs to be used in this connection.

I think their connection is the fact that they’re both using the same gun :)

Well crap, there goes my “Jon Sable to Galactus” potential challenge!

I can get Sable to Fortune in 5, but I’m sure there’s a way to get it in 4.
