Trivia Quiz #15 Answers

1. Who was Ace the Bat-Hound's original master?

Bat-Hound's original master was John Wilker, an engraver who had been kidnapped by criminals planning to force him to create phony bonds.

2. Superboy's dog, Krypto, joined an organization of super-powered dogs. What were the initials of the organization, and what did they stand for?

Krypto joined the SCPA, the Space Canine Patrol Agents, in Superboy #132.

3. What gave Streaky, Supergirl's cat, its super-powers?

Streaky got its superpowers from X-Kryptonite, a variant of Kryptonite that Supergirl created while experimenting in an effort to eliminate the weakness to Green K that she and Superman were afflicted with.

4. Supergirl also had a pet horse with super abilities named Comet. What famed sorceress gave him his powers?

Comet was given his powers by Circe, in part to atone for a mistake she made in turning him into a horse (he was originally a centaur). Comet was arguably the most powerful creature in the DC universe during the Silver Age of Comics; he had all the powers of Superman and Supergirl, with no vulnerability to Kryptonite.

The Martian Manhunter's pet dog was known as Jupiter during his only appearance in Detective #232.

Dan M and Michael Rebain got the first four; Michael Sensei chipped in the answer to the last question (and I suspect knew the other answers as well).
