Q: Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends comic from the early 80s

SDHI had a comic when I was younger that I believe came with the Sunday paper in the US, specifically Colorado. It was branded as 'Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends', the same as the cartoon of the time featuring Spider-Man, Iceman, and Firestar. In the comic, they battled the Abomination not the G...

Q: Is WWE on topic here?

user13267Some of the WWE characters like The Undertaker and Kane are clearly supernatural. There are probably more if we dig around enough. They also have enough viewers that there probably are people well versed in their lore. Is the WWE (or WWF) on topic here?

Q: Cartoon in the style of children's drawings about a little prince who became an orphan

luminaluniiThe style of the cartoon is similar to children's drawings. The main character is a prince who became an orphan. He was wearing a big yellow crown. It seems that he was about to ascend to the throne, but for some reason the other children laughed at him. I remember an episode in which the prince ...

Q: What is the source of this humorous quotation: "it is obvious" (when it isn't obvious)

equin0x80I picked up a funny story about a professor who stated that something was "obvious" after taking a long time to think about it: the story on a Wiktionary user page. I asked the user where the story came from, and he said (not very convinced): "I've read that the mathematician was Norbert Weiner."...

Q: CARTOON: A boy finds a gauntlet and fights against robots in a post apocalyptic world

ptlg225The series was a 3D show with a definitely not western art style from the 2000s. I'm sure that something metal or gauntlet was in the title. But I dont really remember anything else. The show starts with the boy finding the robot gauntlet that attaches to his arm and he cant take it off. Its tran...

Q: Trying to remember a monster battling cartoon show

Q: Manhwa where the main character is a a guy reincarnated as the heroine's step-brother

the watcherI remembered reading a wonderful manhwa where the main character (MC) is a a guy reincarnated as the heroine's step-brother.

Q: Fantasy comic where someone gets smothered by a thorny vine plant late 70s early 80s

blackheadedgullTrying to find a story, or the comic magazine it appeared in. I read it in a childhood friend's garage around 1980-82 but given our ages (about 7) it was probably his father's from a few years previous. I'm in the UK. It left a strong visual impression on me as a kid and despite extensive searchi...

Q: Mafia-style modern vampire fantasy TV show

PotatoCrispSome years ago I watched a TV series about a Mafia-style contemporary vampire family. It was American (or possibly Canadian) and centred on a man who had separated himself from the family but returned to become a sort of consigliere. There may have been slight black humour but I'm sure it wasn't ...

Q: Space opera about a Dyson sphere

ZebyHelp me find a book, please. What I remember is that it was a space opera (fairly huge). It was about a star that suddenly went dark and people were intrigued.

Q: Why didn't Thor do this in Avengers: Endgame?

MocasIn "Thor : Love & Thunder" we saw Thor giving his power to kids to fight Gorr's shadow monsters. Why didn't he use this power in Endgame to fight Thanos's army? The Avengers army would have been much stronger.
