Oh, guys, I'm so sorry.

I was answering questions on my tablet tonight instead of my laptop, and as I thought I was posting the answers, I hit something that said I wanted to delete the whole thread. And since it was waiting on me to post, and I wasn't used to doing this on the tablet, I clicked OK. And then it stalled, I realized what I'd done, and hit Cancel! Cancel! as often as I could...but it was too late. The thread was gone -- not just the post, but the entire thread -- and I don't see any way of bringing it back. I'm going to email Ning's support team to see if there's any way of retrieving it, but I think it's gone. 

In the meantime, all I can do is apologize profusely. Using my laptop, before I do any more damage. I'm so sorry, guys. Believe me when I say I'm mortified.

I'll recap the questions I've been asked down below, so we can proceed, but hopefully I'll get word from Ning on whether anything can be done in the next day or so. 


OK, since Luke had the foresight to keep a copy of the rules handy, I can reproduce them here...in bold!

I thought this game might work. The player holding the chair selects a character. The challenge for the other players is to guess who the character is. They get twenty questions.


All questions have to have to be framed so as to allow the answer "Yes" or "No". The chair can give extra information if he or she chooses, and frame an appropriate response if neither answer fits.


Players may only ask a fifth consecutive question if four hours have passed since their last one. (Since the guess, not the answer.) The first player to guess the answer takes the chair.


Only characters that have made at least two appearances are eligible. So Franklin Storm is, but not Tomazooma. Only characters that first appeared in US comic books are eligible. So not Captain Britain, Dick Tracy, Tarzan, Thor.

Oh, and Richard, I did a little further checking to see if the character appeared in Brave & Bold or DCCP, and from what I can tell, he hasn't.

Is the character alien?

You got it, Philip! 

I tried to pack a bunch of hints into my short description: That he's a DC character, I said straight up. But then the "artistic pedigree" I figured pointed to both the fact that he was an animal (pedigree), plus the Frazetta run on Shining Knight.... as well as the fact that Winged Victory is also one of the names of a famous statue. 

And then there was the "of course," of course.

Is it Winged Victory, the Shining Knight's flying steed?

(And I nearly missed your correct guess, Philip -- we posted at the same time, and I don't think my computer registered your guess until after I posted my message to Richard. Didn't see it till just now, when I paged back to see what number question Randy was asking!)

Okay, time to stop horsing around and get serious...again!

Pawn of Evil changing through the decades.

Let me see....is it the pawn that was first seen in Doctor Doom's hands back in the Nick Fury/Strange Tales days... Later seen in the background of the Watcher's house in the FF .. And most recently seen in Amadeus Cho's backup camper van..?

Oh.....Not that serious.....
