Every (Injustice: Gods Among Us) character page to Injustice: Earth One and Every (Injustice: The Regime) page to Injustice

Category:Justice League: War (Movie) to Category:DC Animated Movie Universe

That's the name used on Wikipedia, but if we don't want that I'd accept almost anything other than the current name, which is awful. Category:Justice League: War (Movie) Characters contains characters who do not actually appear in the movie. Images with "Justice League: War (Movie)" as their reality automatically get categorized in Category:Justice League: War (Movie)/Images, which is supposed to be for movie screenshots. The reality and the movie need to be distinguished from one another.

If we go with this change, pages with "(War)" in their title should probably be changed to "(DCAMU)". --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 06:28, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

I'm just glad to hear this continuity has a name. But I wish the Wikipedia page gave more information about where the name came from, and how widespread its use is. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 20:40, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
Agreed on the lack of a source. And if (iff) we're doing this, written out in full please.--Tupka217
A quick Google shows the term "DC Animated Movie Universe" is already being used on,,,, and even its own wiki (! Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:15, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
Just like this wiki, anyone can edit those. --Tupka217 15:33, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
Yes, but it does show the term is established fanon, and not made up by one guy on Wikipedia. It's in use by maybe five guys ;) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:29, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
And if we rule out a name just because it isn't official and use the title of the first installment for the reality, then maybe all the DC Extended Universe characters should be moved back to Man of Steel? And DC Animated Original Movie is a brand Warner Bros. used on Wonder Woman (2009 Movie), though that movie is a separate continuity from War. But Justice League War and related movies are part of the DC Animated Original Movie brand. Sure, there may be a lot of movies in that brand that aren't canon like Superman: Doomsday and Crisis on Two Earths, but the brand is still there. SeanWheeler (talk) 03:44, December 26, 2018 (UTC)

Azrael (Superboy TV Series) to Death (Superboy TV Series)

If "Death" is her real name, that's what the page should be called. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:30, September 24, 2018 (UTC)

Have we definitely decided not to do this move? I ask because the Move tag has been removed from the page... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 18:57, February 15, 2019 (UTC)
I don't recall a tag ever being there. --Tupka217 15:58, February 19, 2019 (UTC)

Rann-Thanagar War Vol 1 to Rann–Thanagar War Vol 1

Misuse of hyphen. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:22, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

This should be listed in the category Volumes That Need to be Moved as our current bots can't handle moving comic volumes. Kyletheobald (talk) 18:27, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Why do bots do any moving? Can't admins just press Ctrl+Shift+M and move a page? —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:30, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Moving a page is easy. Changing everywhere that page links across the site (refs on other pages, first appearances, volume pages, images, etc.) is harder. Changing that many links times however many issues is a massive project. It took an admin over a month to fully move The Flash Vol 1. That's why bots are used. Kyletheobald (talk) 18:38, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
This is a problem easily solved with Auto-Wiki Browser. Just move the main page, find What Links Here and then set it to fix the links. For a volume that has three or six issues, fixing the individual comics themselves is easy to do manually. All of the volumes of Blue Beetle or Superboy would be a pain, tho. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:42, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
I'll add that this is a pointless move. The use of - is an acceptable variant online just like ' is for its curly brother. There's no need to move this, but if we do, it's a much larger project that's just not a priority right now. Or, as far as I'm concerned, ever. Removing JLA-Z discussion below as it would just duplicate stuff.
Moving isn't hard, but updating links is. And while Billy did manually move that entire volume, I also ran the bot behind the scenes. There's no good quick script to do all of it; Dev's MassRename script is broken. That's why volumes go in a different category. One-shots can still be listed here.--Tupka217 18:52, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
As I pointed out above and you deleted for some reason, this could be done easily with AWB. It's not hard for a series with three issues or six. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 22:11, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Indeed it could. But it would be very cumbersome for, for example, The additions. As soon as a page is linked on multiple pages, you'll get The The [X], and you have to add in additional Find and Replace lines to Replace The The [X] back to The [X]. And you have to that for both the links using Vol, and the {{c}} links using #. And avoid changing the every instance of the character's name in the text. And make sure you include the Title field in the infobox, and the issue and source fields in the filebox (but not the subject). You're still looking at more than five Find and Replace lines, which is actually a lot of work for a series of three or so issues. Honestly, it's easier to just open an Incognito window, log in as the bot and edit it manually from that account. --Tupka217 15:19, November 13, 2018 (UTC)
I have no clue what your example is supposed to show. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 03:51, November 20, 2018 (UTC)
That it's not as simple as you think? --Tupka217 15:52, November 20, 2018 (UTC)
But it is. You can change every instance from "What Links Here" with a semi-automated tool. The Flash (Volume 1) has 246 issues and annuals spread out over decades and is cross-references hundreds of times. Not so with this six-issue mini-series from a few years ago. I could easily do all the replacements in an afternoon. Plus, you can leave behind redirects so it is literally a no-stakes proposition. What I don't understand is all the iterative The The examples you gave above... You just do a replacement for "X-Y" to "X–Y". There is literally no risk of ending up with "Rann-Thanagar–Rann–Thanagar War" or whatever it is you are afraid will happen. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 05:05, December 1, 2018 (UTC)

Barry Allen (Flash 1990 TV Series) to Barry Allen (Arrow: Earth-90)

The Supergirl episode Bunker Hill revealed that the 1990s Flash TV series is part of the Arrow multiverse and takes place on Earth-90. Given this revelation, we need to move all the character pages for the 1990s Flash TV series to a Arrow: Earth-90 designation as per naming conventions since they now have an official reality designation. This would include all the characters in the category:Flash (1990 TV Series) Characters category. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 11:36, December 3, 2018 (UTC)

As discussed here, I think it's too early to move them.

Spoilers for the epilogue in the Supergirl episode Bunker Hill:

So far, we've only seen John Wesley Shipp in his '90s costume and (maybe) the body of Captain Cold (Leonard Wynters) as evidence that it is the same Earth. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 11:51, December 3, 2018 (UTC)

We have confirmation that they are one and the same now, so I'd say it's worth taking action. —MakeShift (talk page) 12:18, December 26, 2018 (UTC)

Dimension Aqua to Xebel

I noticed that the Dimension Aqua page had a move tag, but no discussion here. So I am starting one... -- Shadzane 💀 (talk) 07:48, December 30, 2018 (UTC)

Oppose Dimension Aqua and Xebel are not the same thing. Xebel is merely one of the (presumably many) kingdoms/countries/political entities in Dimension Aqua. Sure, we haven't seen any of these other countries, but given the way Dimension Alpha is described, there must be many others. -- Shadzane 💀 (talk) 07:55, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
Xebel is currently a sorta-redirect disambig, and everything on the DA page is about Xebel. Does Dimension Aqua appear anywhere else as a prison dimension without Xebel? Are there any other kingdoms mentioned? I don't think it's worth splitting off into two pages, and Xebel is the best known name for this. The only known name, in Prime Earth. Having Xebel, featured prominently in the movie, as that shitty disambig is bad SEO. --Tupka217 09:39, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
Does Dimension Aqua even exist in Prime Earth or the movie? I haven't seen either, but it sounds like the newer Xebel is a pocket dimension that Atlantians were sent to as a prison (that is, Xebel is the name of the kingdom and the dimension, and it's small). On Earth-One/New Earth, the Xebelians were native to Dimension Aqua, so there must have been more kingdoms (as the relatively small population of Xebel wouldn't be enough to evolve and sustain a species).
But I'm kinda speaking from ignorance here. Can an Aquaman expert explain Xebel better to us? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:00, December 30, 2018 (UTC)

MY TIME TO SHINE. I might be slightly off on some of the specifics because it's been awhile but here's the rough gist. Dimension Aqua and Xebel are two fundamentally different things that occupy the same place in Mera's origins before and after the 2010 Aquaman reboot. Mera first appeared in 1963's Aquaman #11, where she came from the otherworldly "Dimension Aqua" with the help of a scientist named Xebel. Geoff Johns rebooted Mera's origins in Brightest Day #6. 2010 is an extremely annoying period in Aquaman continuity because it's pretty clear that Geoff Johns was beginning the reboot he would firmly establish in the New 52 (restoring Aquaman's half-human parentage) but he didn't quite take everything over into 2011 (for example, Jackson Hyde). So it causes an annoying split canon for Post-Crisis/Pre-Flashpoint Aquaman but doesn't quite 100% fit in with Post-Flashpoint either. Brightest Day kind of ignores the name Dimension Aqua, presumably because it's silly. It retcons that Mera has always told Aquaman she's from an "underwater world" named Xebel, and that Xebel isn't actually another dimension but an Atlantean prison colony located in the Bermuda Triangle. The old origin was a cover story because she was sent by her people to seduce and assassinate him. Then I think the New 52 canon further establishes that Xebel was one of several ancient Atlantean kingdoms, but I'm not sure exactly where that's said. In the movie it appears to be just one of the several kingdoms with no reference to it being a prison. - Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 02:52, December 31, 2018 (UTC)

Thank you very much Billy! So to summarize:
Earth-One: Mera is from an unnamed kingdom in Dimension Alpha. She is a extradimensional alien. We know this is true because Aquaman visited Dimension Alpha several times.
New Earth: For most of New Earth's history, we were lead to believe the above was still basically true, but the issue had never been examined. Very late in New Earth's history, we learned that Mera was actually from a Kingdom called Xebel, which was on Earth (not another dimension) but was in the Bermuda Triangle (so it was hard to get to), and it was a former Atlantein prison colony (so she wasn't an alien). Also, Aquaman had never been there (until the reveal).
Prime Earth: The same as New Earth, except the status of Xebel was more integrated into the history and wasn't such a big secret. And it may be a bit more reputable?
So it sounds to me like Dimension Alpha and Xebel are different enough concepts that we need two pages. So a split, not a rename. -- Shadzane 💀 (talk) 16:37, January 2, 2019 (UTC)
It sounds like the shift of Xebel from scientist's name to kingdom's name happened after the creation of the wiki, so when "that place Mera's from" appeared, it was just linked to DA. --Tupka217 16:42, January 2, 2019 (UTC)

NOTE: It seem clear now that we will not do this move (instead, a split is needed). However, I'm not going to archive this discussion yet, because the talk page for Dimension Aqua is linked to it... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:21, April 26, 2019 (UTC)

All the Wallace Wests to Wally West and Wallace R. West to Wallace West

From the talk page "With the comics finally distinguishing that this Wally is being referred to as "Wally" and Wallace R. West (Prime Earth) being to referred to as "Wallace", do you guys think it'd make sense to bot the red headed Wally pages to "Wally West (Earth Designation)" and have the Kid Flash Wallace as "Wallace West (Earth Designation).

Final Night to The Final Night

The cover and indicia of the miniseries call it "The Final Night". DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 02:00, March 7, 2019 (UTC)

But this is not the page for the miniseries, this is the page for the event/storyline. And I've never heard anyone call the event "The Final Night". Shadzane 💀 (talk) 16:09, March 7, 2019 (UTC)
Maybe not. However, if you look at the covers of the crossover issues, they all feature a logo that reads "The Final Night". DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 20:36, March 20, 2019 (UTC)
Good point. I think that does show DC's intention that the crossover is called "The Final Night". I withdraw my objection. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 21:32, March 20, 2019 (UTC)

JLA: The League That Defeated Itself to Justice League of America: The League That Defeated Itself

In general, we seem to use the full title of the series that a storyline appears in. "JLA: Rock of Ages" is so called because it appeared in JLA (Volume 1), whereas "Justice League of America: The Lightning Saga" gets the unabbreviated team name because it occurred within Justice League of America (Volume 2). Since "The League That Defeated Itself" storyline was in Justice League of America (Volume 1), the storyline page title should logically reflect that, shouldn't it? —Seancdaug (talk) 23:05, April 15, 2019 (UTC)

Madame Xanadu Special Vol 1 1 to Madame Xanadu Vol 1 1

This 1981 one-shot is simply titled Madame Xanadu #1 on the cover and in the indicia and should be moved. Therefore, the Vertigo ongoing series should be moved to Madame Xanadu (Volume 2). DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 17:20, May 5, 2019 (UTC)

Thomas Emery (Earth-Four) to Doctor Spectro (Earth-Four)

The two Charlton stories in which he appeared only referred to the villain as "Doctor Spectro", never "Thomas Emery". That name belongs to the Post-Crisis version. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 14:43, May 6, 2019 (UTC)

Edison (New Earth) to Film Freak II (New Earth)

Edison is an alias employed by the character, and we don't usually use alias in titles. The preceding unsigned comment was added by ThomasBisaschi (talk • contribs).

How much will it get to rename a page? It's not so difficult The preceding unsigned comment was added by ThomasBisaschi (talk • contribs).

The admins typically let the renames build up for a month or so, then do a big batch at once. Usually, they aren't urgent. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:39, May 8, 2019 (UTC)
Just curious: Where was it established that Edison was an alias and not his real name? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 16:07, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
In Catwoman Vol. 3 #59 the character himself strongly implies it, saying something like (i can't remember the exact sentence but it was very like this): "My name is...that's not important, you can call me Edison or, if you prefer, Film Freak". Moreover, Film Freak is a film-themed villain, and Thomas Edison was a cinematography pioneer, so it is very likely that it was simply an alias employed by him. ThomasBisaschi

Chang (Earth-Two) to Chang II (Earth-Two)

An earlier character named Mr. Chang had his own very short series in the earliest issues of Detective Comics Vol 1.Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 02:56, May 14, 2019 (UTC)

Wouldn't it make more sense to move the page to Green Dragon (Earth-Two)? Kyletheobald (talk) 03:47, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
Maybe so, but probably his mommy and daddy didn't name him Green Dragon, and most of the time the character's birth name is used. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 11:43, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
But then again, his mommy and daddy probably gave him more name than Chang. There has been some rumblings lately against the long-time practice of using a last name by itself (when the first name is unknown) as a pagename, when there is a codename to use instead. (Using a first name only is definitely out.) There should probably be a separate discussion and decision made... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:52, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
Well, that sounds perfectly sensible. But where? And when? Could be this discussion has already taken place, and I missed it. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 01:19, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
Where? On the Policy board in the Forum, I guess.
When? Right now? I don't see any reason to wait. I'll set something up. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:21, May 15, 2019 (UTC)

Appellaxians to New Earth

All appeared in New Earth and their histories are not so radically different after Crisis to warrant (Earth-One) designations. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 23:11, May 14, 2019 (UTC)

Sounds good, but where did they appear post-Crisis? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:11, May 15, 2019 (UTC)

Anachronistic Plastic Men

Move from "Patrick..." to "Eel..."

For well over 60 years, Plastic Man was just "Eel" O'Bri(a/e)n. Mark Waid named him "Patrick" after these stories were published, so there's no reason to assume the character's name is "Patrick" there. Note other universes like Eel O'Brian (Quality Universe) or Eel O'Brian (Earth-One), where we don't retroactively name all Plases "Patrick". Suggest moving at least:

Maire Granger (New Earth) to Marie Granger (New Earth)

Misspelling. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 13:29, May 16, 2019 (UTC)

Hawk and Dove (Volume 3) #2 has it spelled "Maire" at least twice. I can't speak to later issues though. Kyletheobald (talk) 22:30, May 16, 2019 (UTC)
I looked it up, and "Maire" (should really be spelled "Máire") is apparently the Irish variant of Maria/Mary. It's pronounced "MOY-rə". The spelling "Maire" can also be found in Finland and Estonia. So this is NOT a misspelling of "Marie". Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:53, May 16, 2019 (UTC)
Her first appearance has it as "Marie". However, Dove's entry in Who's Who in the DC Universe #6 has "Maire". So, I don't know. Maybe leave it... DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:13, May 16, 2019 (UTC)
I always wondered what was up with that name, and then immediately forgot to look it up. The discrepancy should be noted in the Notes section, though.--Tupka217 00:22, May 17, 2019 (UTC)
I think that if Who's Who and most later appearances have "Maire", then the "Marie" in the first appearance was probably an error (most likely a hyper-correction by an editor). Shadzane 💀 (talk) 16:22, May 17, 2019 (UTC)
Alternatively, Who's Who was a typo and later sources just copied that. --Tupka217 16:42, May 17, 2019 (UTC)
