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.

1) Is it the Phantom Stranger?

No.

Is he a member of a team?

2) I don't know whether he has been post-Crisis. Pre-Crisis he was, but not before the Silver Age.

Has he been seen post-Flashpoint?

3) Has he been seen post-Flashpoint?

Yes. (Hat-tip: DC Wikia.)

You mentioned "pre-Silver Age" -- as a distinct time period from golden age. So I'll ask: Did this character first appear between the end of All-Star Comics (Feb-March 1951) and Flash's debut in Showcase 4 (in 1956)?

4) Did this character first appear between the end of All-Star Comics (Feb-March 1951) and Flash's debut in Showcase #4 (in 1956)?

No.

Were his adventures largely set in the present (at time of publication)?

5) Were his adventures largely set in the present (at time of publication)?

Yes.

In your clue up front, you mentioned you had a character in mind to when you were asking question 5 of my last character. So I'm going to spend a question here so I can stop living in limbo regarding the earlier questions during that round.

6) I'm making the assumption that this character also fits those early-round answers -- i.e. is a male hero with superpowers who had his own title at DC sometime pre-Crisis. Are those assumptions correct?

7) I'm making the assumption that this character also fits those early-round answers -- i.e. is a male hero with superpowers who had his own title at DC sometime pre-Crisis. Are those assumptions correct?

Yes, yes and sort of, but not in that order.

Was the character created by a famous Marvel creator?
