Surprised that Norman Osborn was by far the lowest what with all the Spider-man movies.

Also, interesting revelation about the name "Darth Vader" that I had while in Amsterdam watching The Village with Dutch subtitles: apparently Darth Vader means Dark Father. Which probably would have made the twist in Empire Strikes Back a little less surprising for anyone who spoke Dutch.

Vader is also a Dutch word but Darth isn't, it's made up and if I remember correctly it's related to the Rakata language within Star Wars. --That's even a google suggestion "darth dutch word", another popular misbelief.

I guess you're right. Though Vader still means "father." Dark father would be Donkere Vader, which doesn't sound as menacing. I wonder where I got the Darth = Dark from...

I only knew Jor-El because I saw "Man of Steel" this weekend. Never would have gotten it otherwise. My Superman knowledge is pretty limited!

Raising a child is what makes you a father. Jonathan Kent should be accepted.

But Jonathan Kent was Clark Kent's foster father. He never even knew that Clark's real name was Kal-el until years later. When Superman was Kal-el, Jor-el was his father.

Once again with the *!&#ing spelling of Gepetto. Tried Guipetto, Giupetto, Giapetto, Guipeto, Giupeto, Giapeto. This is like the go-to question if you want everyone to know the answer but no one to be able to get it.

Even though Poseidon's in the picture, only 43% of people got it. I'm ashamed to say I didn't. Or maybe the picture's new, which makes me feel worse.

I feel like you should accept Green Goblin since you accepted Darth Vader.

I don't agree. Darth Vader was who Anakin became - it was his name and Anakin no longer exists (he implies as much directly to Luke). Green Goblin was a moniker for Norman Osbourne's alter ego. Agree they are the same man, but the "Green Goblin" is not Harry's father, Norman is.

It would have been nice to have a few from classic literature. There is more to fiction than Disney, superheroes, TV,, and fantasy.

About a third of these I'd never heard of before, but I've watched all 4 seasons of Vikings and I totally drew a blank on Odin. Very disappointing.

Goodness me. I kept thinking: "But Ariel's a spirit, he hasn't got a father" and even tried Prospero. There is such a thing as being over-educated...

It is not that you are young, I'm no chicken and I got 5 and it is because I don't watch cartoons and soapies.
