Do You Know More About DC Comics Than a Robot Chicken Writer?

Recently Adult Swim aired the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special Volume 3, which I missed so I bought it on Amazon.  There was also a free segment you can "buy" separately where the writers for Robot Chicken attempt to answer 20 questions about the DC Universe.  Surprisingly though I only really started reading comics like 3 years ago, I knew most of the answers, so it wasn't actually that difficult.

Since you don't probably know a lot of the answers, I'll make it sporting and use multiple choice.  If you get them all right you win...self-respect.

  1. I've never really read comics, so I only know things from the occasional movie. So I failed. However, I found some of the answers interesting.
