Siskoid's Canada Day Contest - Solutions

Last Canada Day, a little over a week ago, I ran a Canada Day Contest, one in which you could win three random issues of Alpha Flight (vol.1). All you had to do was to identify the following 37 Canadian comic book characters below and the three that are not nor never have been Canadian.

1. Wolverine
2. Captain Canuck
3. Flying Fox
4. Graviton
5. Puck
6. Plastique
7. NOT CANADIAN (The Master of the World is a Vandal Savage type who crossed over to Canada when there was a land bridge between Asia and America, and never became a legal citizen)
8. Guardian (originally Vindicator and Weapon Alpha)
9. Nelvana of the Northern Lights
10. Wendigo
11. Scott Pilgrim
12. Northstar
13. Deadpool
14. The Jam
15. Snowbird
16. Booster Gold (was minted Canadian after the New52)
17. Brock Windsor
18. NOT CANADIAN (The Purple Man has a Canadian daughter, but is himself from Eastern Europe)
19. Purple Girl/Persuasion
20. Sabertooth
21. Adam Strange (was made Canadian after the New52)
22. Northguard
23. Sparx
24. Shaman
25. Goblyn
26. Johnny Canuck
27. NOT CANADIAN (though Superman was co-created by a Canadian who based Metropolis partly on Toronto - thus the Daily Star - Clark Kent and his world were never set in Canada)
28. Diamond Lil
29. Red Panda
30. Vindicator II
31. The Guardian (a character from Spectrum Comics)
32. Box
33. Sasquatch
34. Deadly Ernest
35. Aurora
36. Flashback
37. Nemesis
38. Talisman
39. Smart Alex (though born in England, OHOTMU confirms he is a naturalized citizen of Canada)
40. Manikin

And so congratulations to Joe Cabrera who got 38 correct answers out of 40, an excellent score. Joe, I'll soon be sending you an email to arrange for your prize to snail mail itself to your chosen location! And thanks to everyone who participated, no one did too badly! I thank you, and Canada thanks you.
