Sorry to disappoint.

I got 5.5 correct.

I absolutely missed Radius (I guessed 3 feet), Heat Vision, Birthday and Bully. But I mangled the Bizzaro chant enough that I'm only giving myself a half point.

Cheese and crackers! The fact that anyone would know CK' s social security number or Lana' s mothers maiden name completely defies my concept of geekdom...

Regarding Lana's mother's maiden name, Waid used a lengthy explanation for how it's Potter. Not sure why he did this as I'm pretty certain it was directly stated that Phineas and Sara were siblings. If I wasn't away in Orlando right now I'd be digging through my Superboy's & Adventures.

Wow.

I'd exclude anyone who knows the answer to any of those questions from writing Superman.
