How Well Do You Know Your Lightning?

Pop quiz! Can you tell which iconic characters each of these lightning bolt style logos/emblems come from?

Um... does Madman count?

It's not intended to be a comprehensive exam of all lightning bolt logos, just a quiz to keep everyone on their toes. :)

Yes, Madman's logo would've been viable, but no, I didn't opt to use it here.

Neat quiz! I'm going to embarrass myself; I should probably get a lot of these but won't.

First row: Flash (of course), Static
Second row: ?, Bolt
Third row: Black Vulcan, ?
Fourth row: ?, Black Lightning
Fifth row: Captain Marvel (Shazam), ?

Aah. Best I can do. Of the ones I didn't guess at, the first three look *really* familiar; the fourth one looks cool but I'm not sure I've ever seen it before.

I hope you're going to give the answers!

Row 1: Barry Allen/Wallly West/Bart Allen & Static

Row 2: Mage & I'm gonna say Jay Garrick

Row 3: Black Vulcan & I guess...current Shazam?

Row 4: Captain Marvel (serial) & Black Lightning

Row 5: Captain Marvel & Flash Gordon

3B... the golden zap on white... I'm guessing Harry Potter.

Since Robot6 linked here this morning, I'll wait until tomorrow (Wednesday) and post all the answers then.
