    I got 10 3/4 (1, 3, 4, 5, 11, 12, 14 abc, 15, 16, 17, 20)

    Also The hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne. It is even more awesome with Adam Baldwin singing it.

    I managed to get 9. 3, 4, 8, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20.
    I think Q20 would have been harder if it was name the original Ultimate X-Men.

    And I have learnt something new about Green Lantern, for which I thank you.

    Vampyrist: I love that video. Especially Adam Baldwin’s hat. A man walking down the street wearing a hat like that, people know he’s not afraid of anything.

    JR:

    Also, the idea of the magic ring came from Wagner’s opera The Ring of the Nibelung.

    So, sadly, I’m just not coming up with enough questions (I might have 2 or 3) for a suitable Geek Quiz, so I would like to take a break from it for a while, give myself some time to refresh. If anyone else wants to take a crack at putting up a Geek Quiz for the forum, please do.
