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.

11) yep, no costumes.

12) yep, she's part of the title!

This one is driving me crazy but I think I got it:

Is it Sugar Plumm from Sugar & Spike?

Yep, it's Sugar, half of the Diapered Duo! She and Spike appeared, grown up, as private detectives in Blue Beetle's Rebirth title. They first appeared in 1956, a few months before the publication of Showcase #4. You’re up!

They also starred in a series in Legends of Tomorrow which has been collected as Sugar & Spike: Metahuman Investigations.

Before you get going Luke, a small intermission.

I was walking our little dog 'Poppy' yesterday (she is a fairly unusual small/toy type - a Pappillion- and often gets admirers)(!) when a lady passed by remarked,

 "She's cute!" 

 and so it began...

 "Is it a 'she'?"

 "Yes, she's a she"

 "Is she young/a puppy?"

 " No, no, she's seven and a half now"

 "Is she a Pomeranian?"

 " No, good guess but no....and she has not got a colour, animal or bird in her name and never been a member of a team! "

Oddly addictive this thread!

Intermission ends.

Okay, I got one: A Marvel character!

Did this character first appear in a comic written or co-written by Stan Lee?
