Default Wizard #171 Annual Exam - Infinite Crisis related

I looked all over for a thread regarding this and couldn't find one, so I figured I'd start one. I'm curious to see what everyone's thoughts are on the answers to these questions. These things will all be happening when DC jumps ahead one year in March. Apparently, each question has a correct answer from from the four possibilies listed. I think a few of the questions have already been answered. But some I haven't heard a peep about. Let the guessing begin!

1. Which of these heroines will give birth in '06?

Wonder Woman
Power Girl
Catwoman
Oracle


2. Which of these heroes will be stripped of their powers?

Superman
Wonder Woman
Supergirl
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)


3. Who will become mayor of their crime-riddled city?

Wally West/Flash
Dick Grayson/Nightwing
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Oliver Queen/Green Arrow


4. Who will have amnesia and become unable to tell friend from foe?

Martian Manhunter
Aquaman
The Atom
Elongated Man


5. Who will take the mantle as the most powerful hero in the DCU?

Booster Gold
Animal Man
Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner)
Earth-2 Superman


6. Which hero will become a criminal in the eyes of the world?

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
Superman
The Flash
Shazam (Captain Marvel, not the wizard)


7. Which of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinte Crisis'?

Wally West/Flash
Conner Kent/Superboy
Guy Gardner/Green Lantern
Dick Grayson/Nightwing


8. Which superteam doesn't survive 'Infinite Crisis'?

JLA


9. Who's about to become the U.S. Military's secret weapon?

Cyborg
Wonder Woman
Red Tornado
Green Lantern (John Stewart)


10. Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?

Brainiac
Sinestro
Black Adam
Vandal Savage

I'm looking forward to seeing who thinks what'll happen and why!

1. Which of these heroines will give birth in '06?

Wonder Woman
Power Girl
Catwoman
Oracle


I'd go with Catwoman, on this one, because it would likely mean a stable relationship/marriage with Bruce, and the potential for a one-day real Huntress/Helana Wayne.

2. Which of these heroes will be stripped of their powers?

Superman
Wonder Woman
Supergirl
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)


Too much has been spent on bringing Hal back and Supergirl is much too new a character for this. Superman, as some have noted, is a possibility if its the E-2 Superman, left mortal to live out his days with Lois. Wonder Woman, on the other hand, has something of a precedent on being stripped of her powers and still continuing on well.

3. Who will become mayor of their crime-riddled city?

Wally West/Flash
Dick Grayson/Nightwing
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Oliver Queen/Green Arrow


Well, Ollie did try to run for mayor of Star City at one point, so him maybe being the mayor of Gotham or Bludhaven (DC's only real "crime-riddled" cities) is possible, as are Bruce and Dick. The only one of these I'd discount is Wally, just because he wouldn't have the patientce for politics.

Bruce is the most likely option, if, as a result of Infinity Crisis and OLY, he's no longer Batman, married to Selina, and a father.

4. Who will have amnesia and become unable to tell friend from foe?

Martian Manhunter
Aquaman
The Atom
Elongated Man


Aquaman seems unlikely to me, as does Ralph. Martian Manhunter is currently indisposed, but still possessed of all his wits. Atom, on the other hand, is currently MIA, so he gets my vote.

5. Who will take the mantle as the most powerful hero in the DCU?

Booster Gold
Animal Man
Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner)
Earth-2 Superman


This one's a given. Kyle's becoming Ion again (at least, taking the name) and Ion was the most powerful being in the DCU.

6. Which hero will become a criminal in the eyes of the world?

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
Superman
The Flash
Shazam (Captain Marvel, not the wizard)


This one, I've got no idea. Captain Marvel and Superman seem incredibly unlikely, Flash and Hal only slightly less so. However, given the fact that the trinity is the focus of Infin. Crisis, Supes seems likely.

7. Which of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinte Crisis'?

Wally West/Flash
Conner Kent/Superboy
Guy Gardner/Green Lantern
Dick Grayson/Nightwing


Only one around in what form? If Bruce is no longer Batman, Dick might take over the role. Conner could take another identity as well (and if the Earth Prime Superboy stays around, he won't be the "only" Superboy any more). Guy... I don't see going anywhere. Wally, well, his book's ending and this is a sequel to Crisis...

8. Which superteam doesn't survive 'Infinite Crisis'?

JLA
JLA
JLA
JLA


The Justa Lotta Animals, hands down.

9. Who's about to become the U.S. Military's secret weapon?

Cyborg
Wonder Woman
Red Tornado
Green Lantern (John Stewart)


I really hope it isn't Reddy. He's been jerked around a little too often. Wonder Woman strikes me as the most out-there, but with her book being relaunched, it could be a good redirectioning. Cyborg's a possibility, given that he's been turned into a weapon before, and John Stewart seems the least likely to me, if only because it would be like some desperate measure to bring him more in-line with JLU John Stewart.

10. Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?

Brainiac
Sinestro
Black Adam
Vandal Savage


I think we can count Black Adam out, especially as he's not exactly a villian and not the type for wholesale slaughter. Vandal and Sinestro have killed millions already, and probably so has Brainiac, so it could be any of them.

Wonder Woman - Her mission is over, she's allowed to keep her life but not her powers

3. Who will become mayor of their crime-riddled city?

Aquaman - Sword of Aquaman... His magic hand makes him a nice target for the Spectre

Superman - Justice Lord.

7. Which of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinte Crisis'?

I have a feeling we may be thinking to literally when it comes to "powers"..... What if Diana is stripped of her Ambassador powers?

Even without her super-strength and flight, she's got to be one of the best hand to hand combatants in the DCU?

1. Which of these heroines will give birth in '06?
I could see Donna have a child. The ones listed, no way.

2. Which of these heroes will be stripped of their powers?
Wonder Woman - That is, if she doesn't get offed.

3. Who will become mayor of their crime-riddled city?
Oliver Queen - It's the natural route. He's been a head of a company, then a political columnist in a newspaper, why not enter politics? In fact, that would be an awesome progression for Ollie. I'm for it.

4. Who will have amnesia and become unable to tell friend from foe?
Martian Manhunter - Severely scramble his brain and BAM, messed up Martian.

5. Who will take the mantle as the most powerful hero in the DCU?
Green Lantern: Alan Scott. If memory serves, he already is. Spectre is the most powerful, but he's more God's will then a hero these days.

6. Which hero will become a criminal in the eyes of the world?
Wonder Woman already is. The person would have to be somewhat noticable, and do a most heinous crime. Could it be Captain Atom?

7. Which of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinte Crisis'?
A lot will be back. Guy's a definite, I'm pretty sure Dick will be alive too. Wally's too much of a red herring. Geoff likes him too much.

8. Which superteam doesn't survive 'Infinite Crisis'?
Justice League, to show how messed up the world is. Outsiders, aside from Arsenal and Jade.

9. Who's about to become the U.S. Military's secret weapon?
Red Tornado. He's been gone too long, and we know how the military likes to mess with people.

10. Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?
Vandal Savage - He's eeeviill...
 
Superman Returns was a great film. DO NOT REBOOT!

I already answered these but I'll play along:
Here are my answers, in order of the questions.
Power Girl wil give birth
Wonder Woman will be stripped of her powers (I think the gods will take her powers and bestoy Donna Troy as the new Wonder Woman)
Oliver Queen/Green Arrow will be mayor
Aquaman will get amnesia
Kyle Rayner will be the most powerful hero in the DCU
The Flash/Wally West will be a criminal in the eyes of the world
The Flash/Wally West will be the only one around (not entirely sure what they mean by that though)
JLA will not survive (why even ask the question if we only get one answer)
Cyborg will be the government's secret weapon
Sinestro will destroy an entire country

The other major bad guys got those reps, I think a modern Sinestro is looking to show off an increased power level and...as always, try to make GLs look bad along the way.

1. Which of these heroines will give birth in '06?

Wonder Woman
Power Girl
Catwoman
Oracle

gotta agree with everyone else on that one. second guess would be wonder woman with the mighty steve

2. Which of these heroes will be stripped of their powers?

Superman
Wonder Woman
Supergirl
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

she gets a decent writer and loses her really crappy story powers


3. Who will become mayor of their crime-riddled city?

Wally West/Flash
Dick Grayson/Nightwing
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Oliver Queen/Green Arrow

I gotta go with Wally. It's going to be part of the reason he drops the flash mantle and he'll spend time with family as mayor of keystone.

4. Who will have amnesia and become unable to tell friend from foe?

Martian Manhunter
Aquaman
ddf
The Atom
Elongated Man

just seems like the best choice. most logical the way things are going.

5. Who will take the mantle as the most powerful hero in the DCU?

Booster Gold
Animal Man
Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner)
Earth-2 Superman

hey he's got the connections. "Yo Grant, Supermans being a dick. could you take him down a peg or 2.....have him get his *** handed to him by Lex or something" "Sure Bud" and thus animal man rises in the power ranks and becomes the most powerfuyl character in the DCU......

but in all seriousness my real answer is kyle.....

6. Which hero will become a criminal in the eyes of the world?

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
Superman
The Flash
ddf
Shazam (Captain Marvel, not the wizard)

He's gonna do something that makes him quit.....

7. Which of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinte Crisis'?

Wally West/Flash
Conner Kent/Superboy
Guy Gardner/Green Lantern
Dick Grayson/Nightwing
ddf
Wally quits, Connor becomes some other name, Gardner reverts back to warrior, and dick stays nightwing


8. Which superteam doesn't survive 'Infinite Crisis'?

JLA

JLA.....


9. Who's about to become the U.S. Military's secret weapon?

Cyborg
ddf
Wonder Woman
Red Tornado
Green Lantern (John Stewart)

it's a good a guess as any


10. Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?

Brainiac
Sinestro
Black Adam
ddf
Vandal Savage

It's the least likely so that's what will happen
