Trivia answers #6

Apparently this one was too easy, all the questions were answered within a day.

1. What were the properties of these Silver Age elements/compounds?
a. sigellium
b. serum XY-4
c. duralim
d. cancellite
e. zuunium
f. rejuvium

Sigellium was poisonous to humans, Serum XY-4 temporarily cured Mon-el of lead poisoning, Duralim was highly attractive to lightning, Cancellite froze Durlans in their current shape, Zuunium was the source of Timber Wolf's powers, and Rejuvium would rejuvenate anyone who ate it.

2. Who were the Best Man and Maid of Honor at the wedding of Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel?
Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl, respectively. Phantom Girl was holding a gemstone upon which Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel rested their hands during the ceremony. Here's the picture.

3. Which live-action TV show did a Legion super-villain appear in? (Luthor doesn't count, he's a Superman super-villain.)
Mordru, in the "Legends of the Super-Heroes" special in the late 1970s.

4. Name the charter members of the Legion of Super-Pets.
I thought this might trip up someone, but no luck. It was Krypto, Streaky, Comet, and Beppo (though why these 20th century residents never teamed up as the Super-Pets, I have no idea). Proty I was never a member, and Proty II joined later.

5. Supergirl and the Legion recently traveled to Rokyn, the planet where Kandor was enlarged. What was the first appearance (of sorts) of Rokyn in Legion history?
Terence Chua got this tough one - Rokyn was named in Adventure 356, though it never actually appeared until a Superman story in 1979 when Superman actually succeeded in enlarging the bottle-city of Kandor. Rokyn is Kryptonian for "Gift from God".

6. Which 20th century DCU character's face did Lori Morning wear on her shirt?
Blue Devil. Bonus: her shirt had the last name of former Legion artist Chris Sprouse on the back.
