Hopefully this weeks quiz will get a bit more attention than last weeks, which had, and I'll be blunt, a disappointing turn out. Anyway, this week we're going to be focusing on the X-Men. Good luck, and no using psychic powers to cheat ok.
Oh and btw, next weeks quiz will be something special. All I'll say is I expect everyone, and I mean everyone, to be able to get at least a 90% score.
As per usual, it’s 10 questions with a total of 20 points to get. The answers will be below a jump from the post whilst on the main blog page, so if you don’t want to be spoiled, take a look at the questions on the blog first. And obviously Don’t Post Answers In The Comments.
