All Comic book charecters 'speak' with their little word balloons, or speak from a radio (only one of those below) can you tell me which Charecter is uttering his first-ever words in the below examples?

1) "Try again Doc!"

2) "What is your name?"

3) "So I learned from the newspapers--when I got back to-day"

4) "Well commisioner....anything interesting happening these days?"

5) "It's an indian!" (Radio)

Now try these....quotations from various comic / fantasy charecters. (all the choices are below for both lists)

1) The're only 2 sure things in life bub....and this aint taxes!

2) I could smell your perfume....as I was crouching in the shadows, preparing to rip you open.

3) NO ONE say WHEN to smash! I WILL smash, but not for YOU!!!

4) I swear to devote my life to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty, and injustice, and my sons and their sons shall follow me.

5) Sure it makes me tough....in facts I gots 27 bullets in me, one of the reasons I weighs an awful lots more than what it looks as though I do

The phantom
The Shadow
Popeye
The Lone Ranger
Conan
Batman
Doc Savage
Superman
The Hulk
Wolverine

Let's see...
first group, the doc got #4 right

second group, Blazes got # 1, doc and blazes are right on #3, and blazes nailed #5. #4 goes to Jonathen Townsend!

Those first-liners in group one are tough aren't they? But now that 5 choices have been elimanated...if you think, there's really only one logical choice for #5 in the first group, and now that wolverine's been elimanated, #2 in the second group should be obvious!

And yes, I can provide citations...you can google them up yourself probably, but...

Wolverine-->X-men (2nd series) #134
Phantom-->several issues....this is the 'Oath of the skull' which all the phantoms take before donning the tights
Hulk-->Incredible Hulk #344 'inwards to infinity' (I think)
Batman-->(first words) detective comics#27, infact these are the first words uttered by ANY charecter in the batman genre.
Popeye-->Thimble theatre#14 After an adventure on Dice island, popeye explains the effects of spinach to Ham Gravy & Castor Oyl.

I'm betting this is the Phantom. A little sexist assuming he wasn't going to have a daughter who would want to carry on the fight!

I don't recognize the quote, but the bad English tells me it's probably Popeye.

Mandrake got Superman! This scentence was spoken by Kal-El to a bewildered Physician, who had just bent a needle trying to innoculate the young Kryptonian.
All his other answers were right, but late.
