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.
I love Tom Robbins, but he keeps writing the same damn book (and yes, I keep buying it). The second-person narrative of Half Asleep was an interesting distraction, but I know more than a few people who ended up resenting it more than anything.
