Superhero Trivia Question #2

1,001 Comic Book Trivia Questions (Revised Edition) 
It's the second Wednesday of the month and so today is the superhero trivia question.  I'm taking these from 1001 Comic Book Trivia Questions by Rich Meyer.  I'm not sure how great it is, but it was cheap and available for my Kindle.  Anyway, if you have a problem with the question or answer, it's his fault.


Without further adieu, here's the question:

"The shape-changing alien Byth was the first menace from which a pair of alien police officers defended the Earth.  What were their names?"

Answer in the comments.  First one to get it right gets a $5 gift card to Amazon in their email or Facebook.  (Again, I'm not mailing a $5 gift card.  I'm not sure Amazon would even let you do that.)

If you aren't first, never fear!  One respondent will be selected by random number generator to receive a $1 gift card.  Yes, you can give $1 gift cards.  Buy yourself a cheap eBook or MP3 or use it to get a dollar off something else.  The winner for this will be announced tomorrow.  The same person cannot win both gift cards because while that would be more convenient for me it wouldn't really be fair for everyone else.

Also I've decided on what I call the "Andrew Leon Rule" where the same person cannot win the trivia question each month.  So if you win this month you won't be eligible to win the $5 for another 3 months (until September).  But you can still win the $1 participation prize.  Andrew Leon is already disqualified this month for winning May's question.

Good luck!!!

Tomorrow the winners will be announced and I will be dipping my big toe into recent comic book waters with Batman:  The Court of Owls.

    1. It's not that hard if you search for the evil alien's name on Google.

  5. I am going with "Hal Jordan" and "Clone of Hal Jordan," because today clones are my thing. Do I win? Should I read the comments before I leave my own? Tune in next week, same clone time, same clone channel.

  8. Was this question in English? I'd rather take a stab at answering: what is the meaning of life?
