As the old year winds down and a new one approaches, it's natural for thoughts of the future, the past, and other concepts of time to be on our minds. Here on New Year's Eve, more than any day of the year, the passage of time is the most keenly felt as we figuratively "step forward" from one year into the next.
Well, when it comes to the fanciful world of comic books, passing forward or even backward in time is a much more literal experience, as various heroes and villains alike are able to travel through time as casually as we might cross the street.
With these time travelers in mind, I thought it would be fun to make the jump into 2008 with a little contest. I've scoured the comic book time stream to find twenty four characters that have either traveled through time or can manipulate time in some way. Jot down as many names as you can, then click here to email the list to me (be sure to use their corresponding numbers). The contestant who gets all of the names correct, or gets the most names correct by 6:00 pm on Thursday, January 3rd (whichever comes first), will win a set of three magnets from my Secret Identity shop . The magnets measure just over 3" x 2" and you can choose any three designs you'd like. I'll announce the winner on Friday, January 4th, so time to get busy!
Oh, and just as I've done with previous contests, I'll be disabling this thread's comments to make sure nobody cribs answers from other contestants. It's all gotta come from your own brain (or Googling skills). With that said, have fun and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
