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.

Is this character the Elongated Man?

YES!! I thought I was being clever but, you nailed it Luke!

Debuting in The Flash #112 (My'60), the twist was instead of being another new villain, the Elongated Man was actually a hero. It was rare for DC to introduce a non-spinoff hero in another hero's book. Of course, Ralph Dibny could twist and turn as well! He never had his own ongoing book but had backup features in Detective Comics during the Silver Age and in The Flash in the Bronze Age as well as finally joining the Justice League in #105 (My'73) of their series.

He was not the first stretching hero being preceded by Plastic Man and Elastic Lad (Jimmy Olsen) but the Ductile Detective did precede Mister Fantastic. Also one of his gimmicks was that he was the only super-hero to publicly reveal his true identity. That fact was mentioned in practically every appearance he made throughout the Silver and early Bronze Age!

You're up, Luke! Stretch your mind!

Thanks, Philip.

A mystery wrapped.

Hmmm...

I'll start with the same boilerplate as last time:

1) Is it a DC character?

2) Is the character a hero?

3) Is the character male?

1) Is it a DC character?

Yes.

2) Is the character a hero?

Yes.

3) Is the character male?

Yes.
