  1. First group are women, second group are “magical negroes” in the most literal sense of the phrase, third group are (New) Avengers, not got the fourth group, group 5 are X-Men, group 6 are alternate universe versions of existing characters (guess), group 7 are writers and group 8 are webcomics.

    How’d I do?

  2. The first one is right, the second one isn’t (DW and Hannibal are white!), the third is good enough, skipping hte fourth, the fifth is close, but they are a very specific kind of X-Men. Six is wrong, 7 is right, and 8 is right.

    You skipped #41/42 🙂

  3. 36.) John Blaze
    37.) X-Man
    38.) David Banner
    39.) Tony Stark

    Comic characters with direct links to rappers or hip hop? I’m not sure John Blaze would work with the other three, I like the song though.

  4. Pretty epic fail on that second one from me.

    Second attempt: Group 5 are all X-Men from the 90s cartoon? I think Corrosion might be right on group 6.

    I’ve got nothing on the rest of it though.

  5. Group 7 is Daredevil writers, innit?

    Yeah, John Blaze is a Method Man alter-ego, didn’t know X-Man(?)

    Group 4, man, I thought there was something about Negabands but Mary Marvel?? I duh-no.

  6. Group 4 are all females who were at one point or another known as Captain Marvel.

  7. […] Yesterday, hermanos posted his take on the Hembeck Challenge. Sometime later today, he’s going to toss one up from a reader. Since my effort has been rather lacking lately, I decided to take up the same challenge, but go all out. So not only did I go a bit more specific in my picks (just putting “Batman” won’t cut it), but I have a visual for each choice. […]

  8. The #29 to 35 group is the X-men Blue team under Cyclops in the 90’s.
