Do YOU have what it takes to be a Silver Age DC villain? Not just the unifying concept, the name, the costume, and the gadgets, but the unique way of thinking that separates the Mirror Masters from the Clock Kings? Take our simple test and find out!
1) You have a device that can turn lead into gold.
Is your first thought:
a) My monetary worries are over forever!
b) I’d better not use this too much, or I may devalue gold!
c) I’m gonna rob a bank!
2) I repeat. You have a device that can turn ANY MATERIAL into gold. You have just used it to turn garbage cans into gold.
Your first thought?
a) This was poor planning. It’s going to be difficult to convert a solid-gold garbage can into spendable lucre.
b) That was fun, but people are going to get suspicious if I persist.
c) I’m gonna go steal money from a safe!
Having a device that can change ANY SUBSTANCE, INCLUDING STEEL into ANY OTHER SUBSTANCE INCLUDING, OH, LET’S SAY, GOLD, how do you open the safe in Question Two?
a) Turn the steel into paper and enjoy the thrill of tearing it open with your bare hands!
b) Turn the steel into oxygen and enjoy fresh air and cash money!
c) “Ah! I think I heard the second tumbler click!”
