I'm writing a trivia contest for a gaming convention in New Jersey next weekend (Dexcon, Morristown, www.dexposure.com --it's a lot of fun if you're nearby and are any type of gamer). One of the categories is on superhero secret identities. Mostly it's filled with the classic DC and Marvel heroes, which I know pretty well. What I'm not as familiar with are heroes of more recent vintage. I have Rorschach representing the Watchmen, but besides the Watchmen, are there any more current, hip heroes who would be good to use in the contest that I might not be familiar with? Thanks for any suggestions.
You're right, that's the worst part. The material is right there, there's a ton of great stories you can tell based on Cap's death. And Loeb is a good writer, much better than this mini would indicate. But it's not coming together here at all.
