Recently added into the Comic Book Hall of Fame, he is well known for his invention of a DC Comics superheroine; a character based on his wife and a mutual "friend". Less well known is the fact that he received a Phd in Psychology from Harvard, and one of his greater contributions in that department was the creation of the systolic blood-pressure test used to detect deception.

You know what to do...off with you to the comment section and HINT away at the right answer.

Don't scratch your head too hard though. If you need to laugh about your own inability to recite pretty useless stuff, go Here! and chuckle away!

I am first, and I am also a shameless googler. Sister Aral must know who this guy is, because her wife's name comes from his superheroine.

Happy Friday, Monika!

No idea but should "friend" be in quotes and if so why? What are you saying?

At 01:57, Blogger Minka said...

Actonbell, let's hope she gets here and lifts teh veil a bit more.

Doug, I am not sure I am the right person to tell you about bees and flowers and ... other flowers. I thought you had read some greek mythology!

Bees and flowers and ... other flowers?

Spill the beans! This is interesting! (Sorry I didn't read many comics as a kid.)

You've got to love a man who loves a woman (more than one woman, I wonder?)

At 12:05, Blogger Minka said...

Morgan, really? i would have thought you were a bookish, comic sorta fella. I remember yout elling me though that you used to work with tools and woods and stuff, made your own writing desk didn't ou?!

Nessa, I am so glad everyone keeps focusing on that. Makes me not uncomfortable, at all :)

At the comic book age it was Lego(tm). I made my own Moon bases with spaceships and missile launchers and such.

Every base was different, but they all had missile launchers. I just took for granted that Moon bases needed those.

Who was the superheroine?? If it was "The Ice Queen" then that's a terrible drug metaphor. And just rather shocking as I believed you were the Queen!

At 13:34, Blogger I Dive At Night said...

Hmm, I just checked and according to Wikipedia this guy "championed the causes of women of the day". But his own character gets invisible transportation so she park is just about any where. This stereotype confuses me.

At 13:55, Blogger Minka said...

Morgan, this particular superheroine is not me...although I appreciate how your association works :) I would have liked to play with you as a kid, i am rather sure...but only of you would let me press soem shiny bottons in your command centre.

Morgan, you and me both, partly becuase I do not get the comment itself :)

At 15:01, Blogger I Dive At Night said...

Press my buttons? Oh you do already.

I'm not about to explain any "female drivers" stereotypes! I'm silly but not stupid. :-)

At 15:49, Blogger Minka said...

God bless you, Morgan!

At 18:06, Blogger Theresa said...

You have me stumped, but I'll get back to you. :)

At 19:33, Blogger birdwoman said...

she might've got a place to park, but she had to run around in stilettos. Poor girl.

large, amazon proportioned girl, but poor girl nonetheless.


At 23:42, Blogger tsduff said...

Okay, I've got not a single clue - stumped. Maybe I've had too many shots.

At 13:57, Blogger Minka said...

theresa, that seems to be the general consensus this time. I take it to mean, we never were comic nerds, nor did the police ever question us attached to a machine :)

birdwoman, hate it when my feet cramped,too :)

terry, It's a Friday night, go nuts :)

At 14:28, Blogger Doug said...

I was so a comic nerd but a Marvel Comics nerd. Is it Jerry Bak?

At 17:45, Blogger actonbell said...

Stupid observation of the day: I just noticed that Aral's wife's blog name is abbreviated "MWW," and your mystery man has initials with the same number of angles. The same letters are getting a workout.

At 19:39, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, I don't needed an explantion from you in that regard! :)

actonbell, I didn't realize that. But you are right. So I take it you are the only one that knows our mystery man. *applauds*

At 14:26, Blogger Doug said...

Wow, Actonbell, that's the first hint that might have helped if it hadn't not.

At 15:27, Blogger Theresa said...

I got out my lasso of truth and roped in some information. Now I know who it is. :)

At 14:12, Blogger AP3 said...

His wife really WAS a wonder! Apparently she earned an A.B., J.D. and LLB when few women had formal educations. She also lived to be 100.

At 17:27, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, bitter-sweet, huh?

Theresa, that must be quite some virtual ripe, you got there!

AP3, so like you to focus on his woman rather than him. Well done!

At 11:12, Blogger Minka said...

The answer to this rather long Thursday trivia is William Moulton Marston

If I go through this comment section I take it that only a handful knew and Doug is among those who didn't.


At 11:54, Blogger Doug said...

Of, course! Willam Moulton Marston! How could I have not known him? It's like I never went to church!

At 20:50, Blogger tsduff said...

Well, my closest claim to fame (gamely tries to save face) is that Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) lived a mile away in Malibu Meadows ;) when I was a kid. I still don't know this Mr. Marston - but what a great stumper Monika!

Hi Minka! Hope this finds you well. Thanks for visiting me while I was away doing sales. I'll send you a t-shirt but I don't have your address anymore! xoxo

At 10:05, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, I had to find somebody that stumbled you, to make you more human :) I am sure by tomorrow you will glow with another smashing limerick:)*pats him on the back*

Terry, yes...I wwas rather pleased with myself there :)

Cindra, well you changed your blog to a different adress a while back, but I saw you the other day popping up in teh snark and I followed you :) It is nice to have you back!
