Sidekicks

This week's Trivia: Sidekicks

This week's quiz, developed by our very own Lunchbox, is dedicated to the ever-important, yet often under-appreciated sidekick. If Saturday morning cartoons have taught me anything, it is that heroes are rarely more than overconfident ego-maniacs lucky enough to have enlisted the endless loyalty of some of history's most humble geniuses.
