Guess what’s back, for a one off special (though if we get decent participation it may become a more than one off special). Don’t ask me why, I just felt like it. For those of you who weren’t around the first time (and in case those of you who were have forgotten) here’s the basics: there’s a number of questions, you answer them, you get points. The answers are in a spoiler at the end of the quiz so you can check your score, but don’t cheat because otherwise you will be forced to read Rob Liefeld comics forevermore, and no-one wants that.
Unlike the previous quizzes (bar one) this quiz will have a theme. And that theme is debuts. So lets get going shall we.
