3 across is the stumper for me; I have no idea what I was doing in 1992, much less Aquaman. Guess I'll go peruse the GCD for whatever "Aquaman" title was happening then. Good work on the puzzle, rob!

You don't need to go to the GCBD, you can do all your research on the Shrine! All Aquaman titles have labels on the sidebar.

Thanks for the kind words. There'll be more!

The only one I could not get was #12 Across, Flash villian. Had to recite Flash baddies out loud to myself until I finally figured it out.

BTW, very embarrassing to do while in one's cubicle at work. I recommend whispering.

Hate to be a stickler, but don't you mean Awesome Threesome instead of Terrible Trio? I only bring it up because that is was a favorite of mine and I don't remember them ever being referred to that way.

John--Sorry if the Shrine causes you any undue stress and/or lack of promotion at work.

Rick--Oh jeez, you're right. I've made that mistake on the Shrine before, but I can't seem to shake it. Duly corrected!

Rob - This super cool! Love the crossword puzzle idea!

Have you ever tried the Eclipse Crossword puzzle builder free software (from Green Eclipse)? It's really easy to use and you can embed a working crossword puzzle into your webpage. Meaning people can actually type in their answers and the system will tell them if they are correct or not. Neat stuff.

Again, love the crossword puzzle idea!
