Got them all, especially as they're the "classic" versions of the heroes that I recognize :) Not surprised obvious ones like Wolverine, Spider-Man and the Thing are most guessed!
Jun 20th, 2010 at 04:58 GMT
Couldn't see the Invisible Girl
Jun 20th, 2010 at 04:59 GMT
Okay, someone had to say it :P
I was a DC guy so happy to score above the 50 percentile on this one, though I could have got 3 more just namimg off random characters, so maybe make this a guided quiz?
Jun 20th, 2010 at 15:34 GMT
@caramba: Maybe not a guided quiz, but I think they should be guessed in order. Good quiz, anyway.
Jun 20th, 2010 at 16:04 GMT
@caramba - You did much better than me...I'm more of a DC gal and I only managed around the 25th percentile.
Jun 20th, 2010 at 16:04 GMT
@rockgolf - Pleeeeez make a DC version !?!
Jun 20th, 2010 at 17:30 GMT
@Caramba & Chronosaurus: Unfortunately that format doesn't work with fixed columns.
@kthxbai: I'm not sure I have nearly enough DC material to do such a quiz justice. It took over 6 hours just to get the Marvel samples in the pictures above. (It's difficult to find good isolated pictures of hands, largely because they're time consuming to draw well.) Also while there are some iconic DC hands (Batman's unique glove with fins, Green Lantern's ring, Wonder Woman's bracelets) I'm not sure I could find enough uniquely identifiable hand. Darkseid? Metamorpho? Swamp Thing? Possibly Flash if the yellow lightning was in play. But who else?

nice. for some reason, all but a sliver of the right hand side was cut off, and i still got them all right. make mine Marvel. ;) but yeah, you could do a pretty kick ass DC one too.
Jul 20th, 2010 at 23:13 GMT
Haha, I'm taking this at work, and evidently the pictures were all blocked by our content filters. I still got 10 out of 15 just by guessing random characters, though.
Aug 3rd, 2010 at 01:00 GMT
I'm officially a hopeless fanboy, nerd...10/10. Cool quiz.
Aug 9th, 2010 at 19:34 GMT
I'm delighted that this one had a resurgence. For those looking for a DC version, try the slightly freaky quiz DC Characters by body part:
Aug 10th, 2010 at 09:40 GMT
Thats was a good quiz, I got them all, I am a comic fanatic.
Aug 23rd, 2010 at 16:17 GMT
I'm not even much of a fan anymore but got them all. Man, still a geek.
Aug 26th, 2010 at 04:56 GMT
My score is a testament to how many comics I read (ie, a lot).
Aug 7th, 2011 at 08:53 GMT
great quiz, great idea
Sep 6th, 2011 at 11:35 GMT
Good quiz. Barely needed a minute, still named them all in order. I think a DC by hands would be possible, but you'd have to include a few more villains, probably, or maybe with the hand in position across the body to show a little costume. Just a thought.
Nov 5th, 2011 at 13:33 GMT
Nice quiz. Give rockgolf a hand, everyone.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 21:40 GMT
y2jdilemma: I see what you did there.
Apr 28th, 2012 at 02:50 GMT
Can't believe the only two I missed are Iron Man and Dr Doom! I suppose that's a case of seeing the forest for trees or however that saying goes lmao
Jun 27th, 2012 at 01:44 GMT
i swear that's nocturne's hand not nightcrawler's. just looks more feminine

Would it be weird to say I've never heard of she-hulk?
Feb 25th, 2013 at 19:09 GMT
Don't worry. She's never heard of you either. Neat quiz!
Feb 25th, 2013 at 19:19 GMT
Missed Daredevil. I guessed Scarlet Witch, Phoenix, and even Elektra. Alas, I thought it was a woman's hand.
Feb 25th, 2013 at 19:35 GMT
My thanks to Sporcle HQ for reformatting the original and picking some better pictures.
Feb 25th, 2013 at 20:05 GMT
My goodness, Daredevil! Such feminine hands! You must give me the name of your manicurist.
Feb 25th, 2013 at 20:59 GMT
great quiz a sequel would be great for those left out here.
Feb 25th, 2013 at 21:36 GMT
I did a sideways sequel of DC characters by body part:
Similar but different.
Feb 25th, 2013 at 22:08 GMT
I just played the sequel. Very good game I feel.
Feb 26th, 2013 at 01:50 GMT
I guessed Thor for what was Namor...who I did get. Didn't think to try Thor for the picture immediately to Namor's left...rats.
Feb 26th, 2013 at 02:39 GMT
Good thing Namor doesn't wear pants or I would have never recognized that one.
Feb 26th, 2013 at 04:11 GMT
Consider accepting Hulkling for #1? He wears very similar gloves.
Feb 26th, 2013 at 05:53 GMT
not accepting victor von doom?
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 18:41 GMT
I don't know him well enough to be on a first-name basis.
Mar 3rd, 2013 at 06:52 GMT
neither Iron Man's picture nor Captain America's picture look like them ... Iron Man does not shoot GREEN and Captain America is not red/silver
Mar 4th, 2013 at 20:25 GMT
IIRC, Iron Man isn't shooting anything in the picture. It was clipped from a George Perez Avengers page. Shellhead was being held in status by the visible green force.
May 8th, 2013 at 23:59 GMT
For the green hand, I guessed Ambush Bug, before I remembered that he's DC.
