OYYUUUUUU ought to read this

Back on Nov. 18th, I presented a Tyroc trivia quiz in "honor" of his appearing on the cover to the upcoming Legion #15. Here are the answers. I know the whole blogosphere has been waiting patiently.


Part A. Fill in the blank (2 points each):
---------------------------------------------
1. What island is Tyroc from?
Marzal

2. What Broadway musical was the island's secret stolen from?
Brigadoon

3. What's Tyroc's real name?
Troy Stewart

4. What other Legionnaires were present to show that the Legion was colorblind?
Brainiac 5, Shadow Lass, Karate Kid, and Superboy ("Superboy" 216)

5. In his native language, what does "Tyroc" mean?
"Scream of the Devil" according to "Who's Who in the LSH"

Part B. Match Tyroc's yells (spelling approximate) with their effects (1 point each):
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. EEYYAAAHH            a. spin
2. AHHRRRRRR          b. teleport
3. OYYUUUUUU          c. turn rubbery
4. ARRRRHHHH          d. wind
5. ZZZRRRUUGGHH    e. force field
6. UIUUIEEEE              f. sticky rain
7. ARRREEEEG            g. explosion
8. IRRRRWWWW        h. flame
9. CCCIIIRRR            i. lose balance
10. RRRYYYY              j. trees sprout tentacles


1-h EEYYAAAHH caused the Beta's jet packs to burst into flame
2-e AHHRRRRRR caused a force field that deflected their shots
3-b OYYUUUUUU caused Tyroc to teleport away
4-g ARRRRHHHH caused an explosion around Zoraz
5-a ZZZRRRUUGGHH caused Zoraz to spin like a top
6-c UIUUIEEEE caused the roads in Metropolis to turn rubbery
7-f ARRREEEEG caused sticky rain to fall
8-j IRRRRWWWW caused "the trees [to] sprout wildly growing tentacle wings!"
9-i CCCIIIRRR caused Superboy to lose his sense of balance
10-d RRRYYYY caused a "terrific wind" to be unleashed

Yells 1-3 are from "Superboy" #216, 4-5 from #218, and 6-10 from #222. These 3 issues are the "definitive" Tyroc yells, since Conway wasn't consistent in #263-265.

Comics in the 1970s were flush with lame Black superheroes created by white people that probably never met a black person. This on is lamest of all:
