New American Gladiator — or Comic Book Hero?

The next generation of Geminis and Ices has been found! The new American Gladiators are ready to take to the ring in January, when the remake of the '80s game show premieres on NBC.

The stage names of the superstar athletes are fairly ridiculous, of course, but that's half the fun. I compared their names with a list of major Marvel and DC comic heroes (and villians) — can you tell them apart?

I've been watching old reruns of this on ESPN. I love and loved this show. Ha! Also, Militia did gay porn.

Yeah, but then some of the writers aren't that great either.

Awww, man, I got Rage and Crush wrong. I currently don't have a boyfriend, dorky or otherwise, to blame, so I'm going to say it's my computer's fault. Thanks a lot, computer.

I still cant believe they are doing a remake of this show. Although it reminds back to my childhood days, i dont think i could bring myself to watch something so cheesy. :ROTFL:

5/8...To me Stealth looks like Jada Pinkett Smith if she was to start taking Steroids! (not saying that that person does)

Mayhem scares me. I find Militia to be a bit sexy.

Awwwww man, Whip! I even got my boyfriend to help with this one, and neither one of us found Mayhem.

I'd like to challenge question #8. Mayhem was a character in Marvel Comics' "Cloak and Dagger" in the 80's. Read the Wiki article here. This is the absolute nerdiest comment I've ever made. :nerdgirl: :rotfl: Fun quiz, Buzz. :)
