Geek Quiz ♯1

So, I'm gonna try something different this week. I can't think of any decent questions for the Big Question, so instead I'm going to bring one of my old forum topics over to replace it (ironic really, as the Big Question started out as a forum topic as well).

The idea is simple, there's ten questions on a variety of "geeky" subjects, ranging from Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics, Movies, TV, Anime and Games. The person with the most correct answers wins, probably a no-prize, in true Marvel style. If you guys like this idea then I will try to keep it going as the Thursday blog post (it's something different). Anyway, without further ado, lets jump in.

1. Name the original line up of the Justice Society as they appeared in All Star Comics ♯3 Winter 1940? (1 Point per member= 8 Points)

2. How many TV episodes of Doctor Who have the Zygons appeared in? (1 Point)

3. Which of these anime series didn't have its origin in a manga published in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine? (1 Point)

a) Naruto

b) One Piece

c) Fairy Tail

d) Bleach

4. In what century is Star Trek: The Original Series set in? (1 Point)

5. How many episodes of Firefly aired in its original run? (1 Point)

6. Who was the first member of the Brotherhood of Mutants encountered by the X-Men (excluding Magneto)? (1 Point)

7. Name the actress set to play Wonder Woman in the up-coming Batman vs. Superman film. (1 Point)

8. Who was the composer responsible for the score of the Star Wars movies? (2 Points)

9. What is the opening line of J.R.R Tolkiens book The Hobbit (1 Point)

Bonus Point: Which Dwarf arrives at Bilbo's home first? (1 Point)

10. In which game did Mario first appear in? (1 Point)

Bonus Point: What name was he given in said game? (1 Point)

Answers below the jump. No peaking now, that would be cheating.

2. 2 (Terror of the Zygons (1975), Day Of The Doctor (2013))

3. c) Fairy Tail (Both it and the original Manga that most of it's characters where taken from, Rave Master, were originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump's competitor Weekly Shonen Magazine).

5. 14

  1. What’s the point of giving us a quiz when you put the answers up for us to see?

  2. @Tool- Technically the answers are hidden if you look at the topic on the blog front page. It worked better when I ran it on the forums because there was a spoiler function so I could hide the answers, this was the best I could do. Next thing, cheers for putting ALL the answers in the comments section so that anyone who actually wanted to try the quiz without looking at the answers now has them plastered all over the comments (I will be editing your comment to remove the spoilers btw, sorry). And thirdly, where did you get 25 episodes of Firefly, everywhere I looked (including both IMDB and the Firefly wikia) say it only has the number I say in my answers.
    For future reference people, don’t put answers in the comments, give your score and what questions you got right (if you feel you want to).

  3. Only 5 points… I stupidly forgot the last answer.

    I am gonna die of shame, now

  4. I only got two right–JR? Some of the DVD’s of Firefly released don’t explicitly say which episodes aired and which didn’t, so some of the info is obscured by those who didn’t get to see it on air.

  5. Herr D:

    Ok, I’ll change the question to how many aired then, just to make it clearer. Cheers for the heads up. Have an extra point.

  6. I only got three…

  7. My score is 7…. I win!

    Sorry I guess I missed where I was just suppsed to put score and not answers. I found 25 from wiki but I think I was looking at the soundtrack cd and not the show listing now that I look back. I think otgher than that though I got some good info and 19 points, if you still have what I put somewhere laying around.

  9. Sorry Legatus, I got ten (3 of 1, 3, 4, 7,8, 10 both parts). I’m mad I missed 2 considering I’ve seen every zygon story and I should probably have known 5.

    What point are you saying you missed, I can’t see it at the moment.

  11. JR19759: What point are you saying you missed, I can’t see it at the moment.

    The firefly question. I was looking at the CD sound track for my answer reference, not the episode catalog. My bad

  12. @Tool- *facepalm* I’m an idiot, I didn’t notice that. If you reckon you got all the rest off memory/ knowledge, then you’re good.
