Silver Age Comic Trivia XXXV

Our final question (and my favourite of all the ones asked over the years in Chicago): Amazingly, only once, between Avengers # 3 and Avengers # 66 - a 5-year span of time! - did any character speak on the cover. Who was that loud mouth? (Answer to be provided by me next time I have Internet access, as a Comment to this post).

Yesterday's Answer: As at least one of you knew, the first Superman-Flash race ended in a tie. Not only was it a draw, but it was an intentional one (the heroes made sure they tied) because two warring gangs of criminals were wagering on the outcome and the racers wanted to spoil their plans.

That wraps up 5 straight weeks of daily Silver Age Comic Trivia. The contest in Chicago is tomorrow afternoon, meaning that soon it'll all be over except for the crying! Thanks to everyone who played, and to those who just read along.

In case anyone's waiting to find out the answer to the final question:

It was Captain America, on the cover to Avengers # 16, yelling "Avengers Assemble!" that broke the otherwise perfect run of "silent" covers.
