Centralized Move discussions

Proposal: To have all move discussions take place here, rather than the individual article talk page.

Reason: To make it easier for editors to participate in Move discussions by making them easier to Watchlist and find.

Implementation: Change the destination in the {{Move}} template from [[Talk:{{PAGENAME}}|Discuss]] to [[Category talk:Move|Discuss]]. Create a template for use on article talk pages, indicating that a move discussion has taken place and directing editors here.

Discussion

I'm not sure about this change; I think making it easier to find move discussions is a good thing, but it's such a fundamental change that I don't want to do it without input from others. The Paradox 00:28, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Sounds perfectly fine to me.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 00:38, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Sounds, good to me as well. A static talk page would certainly be more ideal. Course we also have the option of the forums as well. Those are a little easier to keep track of changes. But I'm perfectly cool with a meta-move talk page. --Brian Kurtz 03:10, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Aye, I say, by the corner of my eye.
I hope it works as good as it sounds. :)
Can we get the pages that are still in discussion in a sub-category than the pages that are ready to be moved? I'm not sure this has been addressed yet or not, but it makes sense to have things in different stages of moving in different sections.
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 03:34, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Centralizing it would make discussions easier.
Roygbiv666 00:05, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Active discussions have been moved here, all that I could find anyway. All "Reality Unknown" and "Full Name Unknown" articles have been moved to subcategories. The only articles left in the category are those whose discussions are still in process, the only discussions on this page are still active (if kinda stale in some cases). Is that close enough to the staging area you desired, Nathan? The Paradox 16:56, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Character (Earth-Watchmen) to Character (Watchmen)

Continuing the transition away from Earth-Placeholder designations. The Paradox 01:03, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
No objection, Move by bot on 28 October 2008. The Paradox 17:06, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Ripley Hunter (New Earth) to Rip Hunter (New Earth)

So, if his real name is unknown, and he always (to my knowledge) goes by "Rip", why "Ripley"?
Roygbiv666 00:02, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
More importantly. First of all, for anybody who reads the Booster Gold monthly, this is a Spoiler. Otherwise you'll find this all out anyway. So, as of Booster Gold #1,000,000, we actually now know Rip Hunter's real last name. It's Carter. As in Michael Jon Carter. As in holy mother of crap, Booster Gold is Rip Hunter's father. First name is still unknown. What are the ramifications of this?
- Billy Arrowsmith, 06:28, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
It's time to figure this one out - it's only been pending for close to a year. Anybody want to make any revised suggestions? The Paradox 17:32, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Awhile back I saw some newbie linking to Rip Carter, who's apparently a member of some old military team I'm too lazy to double check on. I vote for just moving it to Rip Hunter. He's never been given a complete real name, so let's keep it at his one consistent alias. Rip Hunter (New Earth), if anybody disagreed they wouldve or shouldve said something by now.

- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 17:49, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, Rip Carter was the wrangler for the Boy Commandos and has absolutely nothing to do with Rip Hunter. Rip Hunter sounds fine. I don't remember exactly where the Ripley part came in. It might've been in Time Masters. --Brian Kurtz 14:59, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I'm gonna call this one closed and pass it on to the Bot's owner for action. The Paradox 04:48, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Anti-Monitor (New Earth) to Anti-Monitor (Antimatter Universe)

Okay, seriously. The Anti-Monitor is considered from New Earth? That's... I mean, number one, he's a pre-crisis character, number two, he's multiversal, number three, the entire point of the character is he's from the Antimatter Universe. I'd do it myself, but there seem to already be loads of sub-pages and appearances. Really, can we do something about this?
- Billy Arrowsmith, 07:08, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
I'd like to resurrect this topic. If he is the Anti-Monitor from the Crisis on Infinite Earths, then he's from the Antimatter Universe, not New Earth, and should be styled Anti-Monitor (Antimatter Universe). Anyone else? -- 15:05, 26 October 2008 SFH
That would bring him into line with his counterpart, Monitor (Earth-One), and set him apart from the new breed of Monitors such as Monitor Bob, Monitor Solomon, and Monitor Nix Uotan, who don't have a parenthetical reality designation. The Paradox 22:28, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Robert Long (New Earth) to Robert Long (Team Titans)

The Robert Long described in the article is not the mainstream DC Universe version. The mainstream version was a little boy who died in a car accident with his father. This version is from an alternate future, much as the Titans Tomorrow characters are, and should be treated as such. The same actually applies to most of the Team Titans characters, with the exception of Deathwing, Mirage and the Terra dup. The Paradox 19:59, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Admittedly, I've been kinda wrestling with this one myself. Though I'm not aware of the Armageddon 2001 connection. I'm not really familiar with the A2001 stuff... is that supposed to be the same future timeline as the Team Titans? --Brian Kurtz 20:20, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes and no. It's tied in to the origin of Hank Hall as Monarch, but, now that I've pulled a few back issues, I want to change the suggested target Reality from Armageddon 2001 to Team Titans, which is more closely related to Zero Hour. Basically this would treat all of the back-from-the-future characters in a manner similar to Futuresmiths or Titans Tomorrow, as sidebars to New Earth future history. One of the first storylines for the Team Titans was to visit their New Earth counterparts to discover how different they were. The Paradox 20:29, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I haven't finished the series yet, but I wrote up a quick little blurb about the premise on the Armageddon 2001 page. Armageddon 2001 is a possible future in which Hank Hall goes nutso, becomes Monarch, murders all of the other superheroes and turns earth into a ripoff of 1984. Although Armageddon 2001 #1 takes place in 2030, it's called Armageddon 2001 because the distant future year of 2001 was when Monarch went postal. Waverider, the Matthew Ryder of that timeline, was imbued with magic deus ex machina time powers by one of Monarch's experiments, and he goes back to 1991 to try to prevent Monarch from coming to power. The heroes did prevent it, but Monarch was still sort of screwing around in the timestream for awhile until Zero Hour when he became Extant, yadayada, we all know it from there. Anyway though, I don't think the two futures are connected, but they might've been. I just reviewed my copy of Zero Hour. It kind of sounds like Extant might've engineered the Team Titans timelines for his own benefit, but you can never tell with Zero Hour. I f$%&#ng hate Zero Hour.

- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 20:31, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, Monarch created the Team Titans and sent them back to stop Lord Chaos (the future Robert Long), while the Time Trapper was behind the scenes playing both for fools. The Paradox 20:45, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
So, perhaps we should use "Character (Team Titans)" as the naming convention? Should that apply to all from that timeline? --Brian Kurtz 13:26, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
That's the way I would handle it. The Paradox 16:53, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Done, by Brian, on 07 November 2008. The Paradox 04:48, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Jack Napier (DCAU) to Joker (DCAU)?

I can't remember... was this guy actually called Jack Napier in the cartoon or just the Joker? --Brian Kurtz 17:00, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Here's what the DCAU wiki has to say on the subject... The Paradox 17:07, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I remember the episode. A doctor in Arkham Asylum was talking to Batman, and he said something along the lines of, "and here's Harvey Dent, Pamela Isley, and Jack Napier. Better known to you as Two-Face, Poison Ivy and the Joker." That's not a word-for-word quote, but it was a pretty clearly given official name.

I'm calling this one closed, no move. The Paradox 04:48, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Fourth Dimension to Timestream

Contrary to popular belief, the timestream isn't actually the Fourth Dimension. That is to say, dimensions don't really... progress that way. There are two kinds of dimensions. Temporal, and spacial. Currently, we are moving around at will in 3 spacial dimensions, but are moving at a constant and fixed rate in one temporal dimension. So, the timestream isn't really the fourth dimension, it just happens to be 1 of the 4 dimensions that we move in. This comes into play in a manner where it really complicates things when you get to Hypertime. Hypertime is the concept of multiple temporal dimensions. Anyway, maybe this article should be moved to "Timestream"?
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 05:38, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
I really, really don't want to think about this, or Limbo, or Hell, in terms of realities/dimensions/general relativity quite yet. The Paradox 05:50, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Hahahaha. It's alright, this isn't something urgent, I just thought I should bring it up. You're right though, we probably should get our physical realms straight before we start delving into the meta-physical.

- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 05:57, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
I tend to favor this one, if only because we're likely to find much cooler pics of the Timestream that the Fourth Dimension. I mean, c'mon, Superboy flying through a rainbow of colors with big puffy numbers showing the years/centuries he's bypassing? Classic. The Paradox 17:30, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
In retrospect, I think I like Timestream better than Fourth Dimension as well. I know I made some recent edits just to keep it linked correctly, but those are easily reversed. I did see one entry that indicated "End of Time". I don't think we need an individual article for that though. That can prolly just be listed as a sub-section of Time-Stream.
And THANK YOU ALL so very very much for permanently placing that Superboy puffy rainbow imagery inside my head!!!! IT BURNS! IT BURRRRRRRNS!!!! --Brian Kurtz 15:09, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually, there's a discussion over on the forums in the B.U.T.T. about the End of Time. I think we should have a page for it, because it shows up surprisingly often, but I wouldn't know what to name it. The Time Trapper loiters there a lot, though.

Nura Nal (Post-Zero Hour) to Nura Schnappin (Post-Zero Hour)

Billy tagged this one, but I gotta argue against it. As I said in an edit comment at the time, "she changed her name, so Nal is the 'real' one and 'Schnappin' is the former - besides, who calls her Nura Schnappin?" In addition, it would no longer fit the criteria for inclusion on the Nura Nal disambig page. The Paradox 21:54, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't really care. If it's not a popular idea, then whatever. I just tagged that to make it more inline with other people who have since changed their names but we use the old ones anyway, like Darkseid and the Riddler. Also though, she would still be eligible for the Nura Nal disambig, as that would still be counted as one of her aliases.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 22:03, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Since Billy doesn't feel that strongly about it, and I do, we'll leave it where it is. The Paradox 02:28, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Suggesting move to correspond with almost all other pagenames. We only have one Central City. 09:18, 30 October 2008 Mrblonde267
Agreed, totally. Central City and Keystone City don't need to be linked to their respective states. Never cared for that. The only Flash-related locales I think we should keep as-is is Manchester, Alabama, as Manchester could also relate to Mancheter England as well as Manchester Black. --Brian Kurtz 15:02, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Virgil Hawkins (New Earth) to Virgil Hawkins (Dakotaverse)

Midvale (Earth-One) to Midvale

To follow the usual naming conventions for locations, which is to not have a reality designation unless necessary. It isn't in this case. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Seconded.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 18:08, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

So clearly this page needs some naming. Apparently his name is Virgil Hawkins, but what's the reality designation? Does Milestone have its own universe? I assume it does, but we don't have too much Milestone info on the site. "Virgil Hawkins (Earth-Milestone)"? We know it's multiversal because of Worlds Collide.

- Billy Arrowsmith, 20:22, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
According to Milestone Media, the Milestone stuff is destined to be a part of "New Earth".
Roygbiv666 00:50, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I remember flipping channels once and ending up on the Static Shock cartoon and wondering why he was talking to the Green Lantern. That could explain it.
- Billy Arrowsmith, 00:56, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Right now, it's suggested that this article be moved to the Dakotaverse. But... isn't Static slated to be appearing in the Teen Titans pretty soon?
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 20:42, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
I know that the Milestone stuff is coming back... and they are going to be part of mainstream continuity. For the time being however, we might want to hold off on any major revisions to see how this plays out. I just don't wanna end up with another Kal-El (Earth-22)/Kal-El (Kingdom Come) kafluffle. --Brian Kurtz 17:04, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

On hold until somebody brings it up again... The Paradox 04:48, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

One additional thought: According to the structure of the site, there should be a DCAU Virgil Hawkins article as well as the comic version. And depending on whether or not the one scheduled to appear in Titans is the same as the Milestone Media version, there may be need for three pages. The Paradox 02:34, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Hrrrmm. I guess it got moved anyway. So much for the process working. The Paradox 07:21, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I moved it because we had like three articles that pointed to it, and I wanted it to conform with the rest of my work on Milestone. We'll see how things go. If we need a new one, so be it, we need a new one.

Alcatraz Island to Alcatraz

Island is redundant and not even accurate in this case. It's name is Alcatraz, not Alcatraz Island, and the name refers to an island, a prison, a military fort and a tourist attraction. This is equivalent to to saying Maui Island or Isle of Man Island. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Adolf "Crazy Stache" Hitler

I don't know where I got the "Adolph" spelling from, but from every resource I've found, both real-world and DC Comics, Hitler's first name is spelled "Adolf", not Adolph. So...ummm, yeah. We should probably move this booger. --Brian Kurtz 14:14, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

I agree with the move - Billy, maybe you can unleash RoBotman on it? And, to be fair, Hitler was the best ... at being evil. That's something.

Central Power Battery to Green Lantern Central Power Battery

It occurs to me that with the other Lantern Corps assembling, each will have its own Central Power Battery, three of which have also appeared. Therefore, this article would have to be moved and Central Power Battery be turned into a disambig. Where should we move this to? Green Lantern Central Power Battery? Oan Central Power Battery? -- SFH 05:24, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Are they all called Central Power Batteries? The Paradox 04:48, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
The current articles are named as such, including Qwardian Central Power Battery and Star Sapphire Central Power Battery. -- SFH 06:16, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
I wouldn't go by the article name. What do the comics call them? 'Cause those are our source material, and whatever they are called in those is what we should be using. The Paradox 06:39, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
True. -- SFH 06:55, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
I believe the GLC battery is canonically referred to as the Central Power Battery of Oa. --Brian Kurtz 08:08, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Update: The Sinestros battery on Warworld was called a "Central Power Battery" by the Guardians in Green Lantern Vol 4 25 as they discuss the end of the war. At the very least, that's two, which might justify a page move. -- SFH 02:45, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

I tend to agree. Let's give it a couple more days, since people don't seem to monitor this page much. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

If the Green Lantern's Central Power Battery is known officially as the Central Power Battery of Oa then why don't we just keep that certain title only on the templete were it is currently shown I think at least twice on the templete but for the title of the actual article page why don't we call that Green Lantern Central Power Battery? But what ever title is desided to be the final title the page at least should not be called Central Power Battery since there is a total of 8 Lantern Corps and they all have central power battery. But I do agree with SFH he makes a good point in suggesting turning the page into a disambig page that would make more sense for the title that is currenly shown.

Rod12

Okay, I'm ready to start writting articles on the Red and Blue Central Power Batteries pretty soon. Can we agree on a name and move it, so that I can have some precedence for naming convention and so forth? -- SFH 22:38, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Guys? Do we have an agreed upon name yet? Green Lantern Central Power Battery or Central Power Battery of Oa? -- SFH 19:00, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

René Jacques Brande (Pre-Zero Hour) to Ren Daggle (Pre-Zero Hour)

I have to disagree with moving this page. While he may have been born a Daggle, he changed his identity years before founding the Legion and was legally known as Brande. The Paradox 19:56, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

There are several pros. It would help solidify his ties to his son, Reep Daggle (Pre-Zero Hour). Also, it would distinguish his character origins more solidly from René Jacques Brande (Post-Zero Hour), who was an actual human, and was actually born with that name. I see where you're coming from. It irks me everytime I have to type Edward Nashton instead of Edward Nigma, but I think in this case there's enough reason to. He's also now gone back to his Durlan form, albeit in death.

Plus, I really hate having to copy-paste people's names to get the pronounciation correctly when I'm making appearances. And I find it best to just try and avoid that whenever possible.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 20:16, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Still waiting for more comments... The Paradox 04:48, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Closed - no move. The Paradox 07:21, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I have to say, this one still bothers me. Could we get an outside opinion on this? Besides conventions, and the connection to his son, if only because it's a perfectly good way to not have to visit his article every single damn time he appears, just so you can copy-paste that stupid accent. If a third person looks at this and agrees that he should not be moved, then I'll drop it and accept it. I'd just like to have an actual decision on this, rather than a choice made through our lack of one.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 15:36, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
I seems as if your main reason for moving it is editorial convenience, not accuracy of source material. Plain and simple, he changed his name. If the naming conventions are to use "real" names, no matter how dubious their application (Aztar comes to mind), then we should follow conventions. We don't call Gerald Ford "Leslie Lynch King, Jr.," we don't call Bill Clinton "William Jefferson Blythe III" and we shouldn't call R.J. Brande "Ren Daggle." If I changed my name I shouldn't have to put up with people calling me by the old one simply because it's more convenient for them. Oh, wait, that's exactly what happened. The Paradox 18:33, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Although editorial convenience is my favorite reason, I have stated several others. On all relating pages, he will still be referred to as "R.J. Brande". As to the analogies, no, we don't call him William Blythe. However, if he called himself Bill Clinton, despite his children and the rest of his family calling themselves Blythe, and he also had an alternate universe counterpart who had in fact been born Bill Clinton because unlike our Bill Clinton, this one was not a shape-shifting alien, it would conceivably be justifiable to name his comic reference page that akin to every other page on the site, noting him as Bill Clinton everywhere else he appears. My reasoning stands.

Cyrus Gold (New Earth)/Gallery to Solomon Grundy/Gallery

One of the messy consequences of the ever-changing naming conventions is the chaos it's brought to character galleries. Cyrus Gold (New Earth)/Gallery is a good case in point - of the 8 images, only three are from New Earth. Three different TV realities are also depicted. Lets just have the pagename reflect the reality of the gallery. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Impulse (Everyman Project) to Impulse (New Earth)

I personally hate this one, but it is the Naming Conventions. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

He's a single appearance character. Can we just delete him, and add a footnote to the Impulse disambig?
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 18:08, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Seven months after the fact, but it appears the move hasn't happened yet . . . How about Impulse (Everyman Project) (New Earth)? Still conforms to the naming conventions without causing confusion with Bart Allen or Kent Shakespeare. -- Profzoom 21:49, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Ted Grant (New Earth) to Theodore Grant (New Earth)

Somebody else tagged this without opening a discussion. I would like to know when his full name was revealed - I think changing it based on an assumption of his true name isn't good enough, given he has nearly 80 years of being Ted. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

I tagged it for moving because it's already written on the character page. I suppose in theory he could be Edward Grant or Edwin Grant (wikipedia:Ted). Or maybe a nickname is on his birth certificate. Whatever. Who originally marked him as Theodore? Were they just speculating?
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 18:08, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
I dunno. I think someone was just taking a guess. I've been very conscious about good ole Ted Grant's name, and I'm always keeping an eye out for confirmation on Theodore or Edward. So far, I haven't found anything. --Brian Kurtz 18:23, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Damn. The DC Encyclopedia also lists him as Ted. Stupid lousy secret identities.

- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 18:28, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
So, Ted it is? If so, does anyone else think we could then use him as a example of a Quality Assessment character entry?

Another article tagged without a corresponding discussion. I'd like to see the article updated to include reference to his New Earth existence before this one is moved. The Paradox 17:57, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

He has a Who's Who confirmation, a Starman appearance and a handful of appearances in Trinity... that I know of.

Zero Girl Vol 2‎ to Zero Girl: Full Circle Vol 1

The individual issues are listed as Full Circle, the cover says Full Circle, without checking GCBD or comics.org I'd be willing to guess that this is published as Zero Girl: Full Circle. There's no reason I can think of why it shouldn't be named such here. The Paradox 01:33, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Go for it. That was made in another time.

Adam Strange's Jet Pack to Rannian Jet Pack

Perhaps this should be moved so as to not be so restrictive. Alanna Strange, Champ Hazard and other Rannians have also used these. --Brian Kurtz 16:26, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Seconded.

Wendy and Marvin

Teen Titans Vol 3 66 reveals that Wendy and Marvin are the children of the Calculator. Reason would assume that the would share his surname, Kuttler. However, we might want to wait until the story develops further, to see if they actually do share his last name. If nothing comes of it (which wouldn't surprise me considering the current quality of that title), then I say we move 'em anyway because single name characters suck.

Suggested move:

--Brian Kurtz 19:07, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

I believe that that the Wendy/Calculator plot is actually going to be adressed during Oracle's Battle for the Cowl mini, but I would also agree on waiting to see if they're his legitimate kids first and thus legally share his last name. -- SFH 19:23, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Is anybody picking up the Calculator Faces spotlight this week in BoP? That might be helpful. Yeah, though, reasonable assumption.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 20:24, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
So, recent Teen Titans Annual says... Wendy White?

Sergeant Steel (New Earth)

Provided someone can provide a citation as to his real name (Sargent Steel), then let's do it. Roygbiv666 23:03, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Super Young Team (New Earth)

I disagree that this article needs to be moved. The tag cites the Naming Conventions page. Let's have a look at what I presume is the expected relevant section:

Character Entries. Character entries should be listed by the real name and earth-designation of the character if possible.

(We don't appear to have any particular section on Teams).

Looks to me like the Universe should be included. I see no persuasive reason that one rule should apply for individual characters and another for Teams (or locations for that matter). There was a JLA on Earth-One and a JLA on Earth-0/New Earth. Maybe we should be discussing the Naming Conventions before requesting moves.

Of course, it is possible to have one article with multiple sections, one for each reality, but one could argue the opposite as above. Is there a shortage of server space I don't know about? Thoughts?

Roygbiv666 02:23, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

The move template automatically cites our hopelessly outdated naming conventions, not the suggestion itself. Teams, just like locations, races and items, provide general information on a broader, more conceptual subject than an individual character tied logically to their own birth reality. In special circumstances where information is specifically different between realities, such as in the case of the Justice League of America (only arguably valid anyway, and probably still unnecessary), it is justifiable. However, spray-painting a reality designation on every single article in some misguided attempt to be overly specific is not helpful, it is unnecessary, confusing to readers, and generates more work every time you want to reference a group that only appears in mainstream continuity anyway. It's the same reason that we have articles like Blüdhaven and not Blüdhaven (New Earth), or Green Arrow's Chili and not Green Arrow's Chili (New Earth). If it becomes apparent that we need to divide up the Super Young Team into multiple articles, because some writer coincidentally decides to start two other new teams using the exact same name but with no actual connection or relation (sarcastically hypothetical), then I will support the change. Until then, there are several reasons why this unnecessary reality bukkake spraying realities everywhere where they don't need to be is inconvenient, but I fail to see any actual benefits. I can only assume that the reason we have this system implemented at all anywhere is just leftover paranoia from 52 Week 52. Otherwise, while we're at it, wouldn't it be more "accurate" to divide, say, the Humans article into Humans (Earth-Two), Humans (Earth-One), Humans (Earth-5), etc.? It's a slightly blurry line, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't at least attempt to draw it somewhere.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 03:39, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I realize it's part of a template, I have been here for a while, Billy. I don't see how adding 10 characters ("(New Earth)") to an entry is a big deal. Although it's exceedingly unlikely that there would be other versions of this team, as a general principle, it's not that outre. Two perspectives spring to mind:

  1. wikipedia:Joseph Bazalgette designed the London combined sewer system in the late 1800s. When planning the network he took the most dense population, gave every person the most generous allowance of sewage production and came up with a diameter of pipe needed. He then said 'Well, we're only going to do this once and there's always the unforeseen.' and doubled the diameter to be used. (Doubling the diameter increases the capacity by four times.) Every Londoner should be grateful for this foresight as the unforeseen was the tower block. If he had used his original, smaller pipe diameter the sewer would have overflowed in the 1960s. As it is they are still in use to this day.
  2. The Marvel Universe obviously has many more than 52 alternative realities, so this next bit is perhaps tenuous. However, the MDP has about twice as many articles as this one. They have already gone through most of the challenges that we have and come up with some solutions (the inane "Comics" namespace aside). I would choose to learn from their experiences and have Universes for Teams.

Teams (and items, and locations) could readily get ridiculous with Universe designations, however based on the foregoing, I think it might not be a bad idea to start now in anticipation of multiple entries in the future.

Batman: A Death in the Family

So you guys want to move Batman: A Death in the Family (Collections) Vol 1 1 to Batman: A Death in the Family, but there's a bunch of content in both pages. Shouldn't that just be a merge?

Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 04:07, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a merge. Ignore that.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 04:09, 21 March 2009 (UTC)


The Red Circle Vol 1

Yeah, I wasn't sure about "The" at the front, but have seen it on other titles. Should it be moved?

Roygbiv666 01:28, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
We tend to use it only where it's absolutely necessary. It makes templating a lot easier, as well as search functions. In this case, it's not really essential to the title.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 16:03, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Ultra-Humanite

Well, it looks like they retooled this guy's origin. As per Power Girl Vol 2 2 he now has the real name of Gerard Shugel. His timeline has been compressed so that he became the UH in the modern era, not the 1940s. And it appears as if he has only ever used the white monkey body, though this is just speculation. I don't mind tackling the changes; just wanted to give everybody a head's up. --Brian Kurtz 13:04, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, the UH was originally a Golden Age Superman villain, right? So, by rights we either need some Pre/Post Crisis explanation thing, or a UH (Earth-Two) entry. I'd prefer copying the current UH data into a Ultra-Humanite (Earth-Two) entry, deleting any Post Crisis material, then moving the current entry to Gerard Shugel (New Earth) with all the Earth-Two data deleted. Discuss.
Roygbiv666 13:20, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking of something along those same lines. --Brian Kurtz 15:46, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Not necessary, When he was a member of the Time Stealers. Booster Gold still remembered his other forms. Together with Per Degaton and Despero. When they fought in an altered Timeline because Ted Kord didn't die, but Ted got back into time to die again , resetting the time. everbody in the altered timeline was pulled to the current one, somewhere. Not reading the Power girl comic but my guise is that this Ultra-Humanite is the someone his crimes have yet come to pass (or worse his time travelling experience has him changed in a chakter of its --Ouroborosi 17:22, 23 June 2009 (UTC)


Wait, is this some damn time-travel thing where from UH's perspective his first body is the gorilla, and he later takes Delores Winters in the past, but in his "future"? Time travel sucks. Wasn't this alluded to in Justice League of America Vol 2 8?
Roygbiv666 00:11, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
I haven't read that issue mind you, but looking as the Booster Gold Vol 2 hadn't been puplished yet, it could be more then likely

With Delores Winters probably erased from time (the two mysterious people are probably Per Degaton and Despero). Well it explains now why The Ultra Humanite wants power girl as a host its orginal is probbaly dead and an other time --Ouroborosi 20:48, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Martha Kent (New Earth) to Martha Clark (New Earth)

Naming conventions. Clark is Martha's maiden name. -- Profzoom 23:44, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Nora Allen (Earth-One) to Nora Thompson (Earth-One)

Naming conventions (maiden name). Note that we haven't seen the New Earth (aka Post-Flash: Rebirth) Nora's maiden name yet, so I think it should stay where it is, rather than assuming it's Thompson as well. -- Profzoom 23:48, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Gregory Sanders (New Earth) to Gregory Sanders (Earth-Two)

While I agree that most of the history should be moved to such an article, there definitely is a Gregory Sanders from/on New Earth as seen in the most recent version of 7 Soldiers and limited series "Vigilante: City Lights, Prairie Justice." So I don't think the page itself should be moved, just most of the content. --WolfordMnemsis 00:09, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

I don't think that this is a case where we need an actual move... at most, maybe a new page could be created and the appearances swiped? Personally though, as always, I am in favor of keeping information about a single character to one page if we can and explaining differences in the history text.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 01:59, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

Tia Amparo Cardenas (New Earth) to Amparo Cardenas (New Earth)

Shouldn't she be moved to just Amparo? The word "tia" is spanish for aunt. Unless its been said somewhere that this really is her first name, it should be moved. Or maybe they've given her a first name somewhere else. Kyletheobald 13:15, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

Topo (New Earth) to Topo the Octopus (New Earth)

I think this should be done. For one, it would free up the name Topo for Aquaman's (Arthur Curry) sidekick Topo. This way we won't have to add something else to his name like Squidboy. He never really was called anything but Topo. A second reason is that this will bring it in line with other animals such as Frankie the Monkey. Kyletheobald 19:27, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Patrick O'Brian (The Brave and the Bold) to Edward O'Brian (The Brave and the Bold)

His actual name is revealed in Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Long Arm of the Law!. -- Tupka217 21:12, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

The page is missing its reality tag. -- Tupka217 18:54, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

X-24 (New Earth) to Rosabelle Mendez (New Earth)

Revealed in Booster Gold Vol 2 8. Even though it's an alternate timeline, it seems legit. -- Tupka217 20:04, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

There's no precedent for this one, but I'm willing to set it. Alternate timelines have different rules than alternate universes. In this case, the divergent point in the timeline was well into her career. I see no reason why anything revealed to have happened before the new timeline started wouldn't be perfectly in continuity. Approved, we'll get a bot to handle the move.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 23:16, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

I've been reading (and filling in character data and stuff for) the Titans Hunt story line recently and I just got to the issue where she first appears... if she's going to be moved to Rosabelle Mendez (New Earth), should I tag her as that instead of X-24 (New Earth), or X-24 (New Earth), since it's the present page?J'onn J'onzz 16:10, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

No, tag her as X-24 right now and the bot will sort it all out.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 16:51, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

I say definitely move her to Rosabelle Mendez (New Earth). X-24 is her designation, but not really her name. ZeroSD 23:07, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Imra Ardeen (New Earth) to Imra Ardeen (Earth-Prime)

This, along with all the Legion of Super-Heroes character entries listed as New Earth when they are supposed to be Earth-Prime, should be moved.

Garth Ranzz (New Earth) to Garth Ranzz (Earth-Prime)

As stated above, if it's the Earth-Prime character, it should be listed as so.

Legion of Super-Heroes (New Earth) to Legion of Super-Heroes (Earth-Prime)

This page should be moved to Earth-Prime, seeing as it's that version of the team.

Metal Men to Metal Men (New Earth)

Currently, it only has a "See also Metal Men (Earth-9)", but there's more versions of them. They exist in Earth-9, Earth-21, Earth-22 (as Alloy, the Metal Man), Earth-44, The Nail, Justice, DC One Million and BTBATB, and there's Metal Men Vol 1 and Tangent Comics: Metal Men, which, I think, is enough to give them their own disambiguation page. -- Tupka217 08:18, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Mallory Kimbal (New Earth) to Mallory Kimball (New Earth)

Because I should've checked before I made that page. Spelled Kimball in Detective Comics #859. -- Tupka217 10:18, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

The family is "the Inzerillos", but that's plural. The surname is just Inzerillo. See Cry for Blood and Gotham Central. -- Tupka217 11:43, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Jason Troy to Jason Troy (Impact)

I think that Jason Troy should be moved to Jason Troy (Impact), not Jason Troy (New Earth). All of the comics listed with Jason Troy appearances are Impact appearances. I'm not sure if he's been introduced in the newest Shield Vol 1 or The Web Vol 2 series or not, but that character would be Jason Troy (New Earth), not the one that is currently listed as Jason Troy. I ask that Prof. Zoombot pleases changes all Jason Troy to Jason Troy (Impact). Thanks. Goblyn4evil 22:48, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

I'm cool with that. I originally wanted to put up a move3 template, but decided on New Earth because that's what the new MLJ comics have. The Impact era wasn't that well documented. -- Tupka217 06:25, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Renegades to Renegades (New Earth)

There's Earth-One Renegades too, Freedom Fighters villains. New Renegades also popped up in Freedom Fighters (Volume 2) #1. Should those be Renegages II (New Earth), or should it be merged with Renegades (Earth-One) and the Future Flash Rogues be moved to Renegades II? -- Tupka217 22:05, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

How about making the Flash villains Renegades (25th Century). or... what are they, the Reverse-Flash Task Force or something?

Ace of Clubs (DCAU) to Ace of Clovers (DCAU)

This just occurred to me: Ace should actually be at "Ace of Clovers (DCAU)". The "Ace of Clubs (DCAU)" is the robot in Batman Beyond. -- Tupka217 21:16, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Good point, Tupka. (VicGeorge2K9 21:31, September 9, 2010 (UTC))

Professor Radium (New Earth) to Henry Ross (New Earth)

I can't believe this one isn't already done. Anyway, we know his name so it should be moved over. Kyletheobald 20:11, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

Sergeant Cayce (New Earth) to William Cayce (New Earth)

I think we got ahead of ourselves making this page. His name is revealed in his second appearance, Shield Vol 1 1.

Jack of Spades (New Earth) to Jack of Spades III (New Earth)

Jack is the only unnamed member of the second gang, however, Jack of Spades I was Hi-Jack (Earth-One), who changed suits from Clubs in Wonder Woman #256. Oh, and Hi-Jack made New Earth appearances too, so he should be moved to Hi-Jack (New Earth).

And as you might have noticed, I'm taking the RFG head on at the moment. I'm doing pips first, I'm waiting for a couple of issues coming in and then I'll tackle the Face cards. -- Tupka217 12:27, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Super Friends Vol 2 to DC Super Friends Vol 1

That's the full cover title, and it helps to disambiguate. No more "Bruce Wayne (Super Friends Vol 2)" but rather "Bruce Wayne (DC Super Friends)". -- Tupka217 18:07, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

That sounds like a great idea.

Yeah. Same for Thaal Sinestro (Earth-32). -- Tupka217 20:42, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Since the name is used for other identity-unknown characters, I'd think it's safe to say this isn't his real name. -- Tupka217 20:44, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Green Man (New Earth) to Green Man II (New Earth)

Death of Green Man 01

Horrible gruesome death of the original Green Man

There was an earlier character called "Green Man", of the Omega Men. They need to be distinguished in some whay, either with Green Man I and II or "of the Omega Men" and "of Sector 2828" or something. -- Tupka217 08:24, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure they are different. From what I understand, the planet Green Man comes from doesn't have individuality and the guy broke this custom to take the name Green Man. He joined the GL Corps and, later, Omega Men and was seemingly killed. Then, with the rebirth of the Corps, he reappeared. I believe it was the original and not a second guy. They've treated him as the same character in his appearances in GL vol 4 and it seems unlikely another person from his planet would rebel and also take the Green Man name. Kyletheobald 10:25, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

They're definitely different. The original was killed... the second one is treated as basically the same person because they have no individuality. One of them was exclusively a member of the Omega Men, the other was exclusively a member of the Green Lantern Corps. Here's an image of the original getting slaughtered by Durlans during Invasion!

Most Excellent Super Bat (New Earth) to Heino Okata (New Earth

Mosexsbat is called Heino in the comics, but Heino Okata in Greg Cox' novelization of Final Crisis (page 53). I couldn't find a precedent for this, but it seems legit to me. -- Tupka217 12:42, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Alicia Grissom (Burtonverse) and Eckhardt (Burtonverse)

She is listed in the credits as Alicia Hunt and is never actually stated as Carl Grissom's wife, she is infact his mistress so I suggest the page be moved to Alicia Hunt (Burtonverse). (Also incase there was a problem with my movement of Eckhardt (Burtonverse) to Max Eckhardt (Burtonverse) that was because Max is his first name, again from the credits and possibly is even mentioned in the film) -Doomlurker 17:31, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

It's not that there's anything wrong with the suggested moves, far from it. However, all pages on which the article is linked need to be updated - double redirects need to be fixed, autocategorization needs to be updated. It's just not that simple as pressing the "move" button. -- Tupka217 17:41, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
If I do this is it ok to move the article? Its just the appearances category that needs changing and the articles putting them as Alicia Hunt (Burtonverse)/Appearances rather than Alicia Grissom (Burtonverse)/Appearances - Doomlurker 19:44, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Yes. As long as you tag categories and pages that are no longer needed with {{delete}}. The category needs to be changed in the template itself, by replacing Alicia Grissom (Burtonverse) with Alicia Hunt (Burtonverse), not by adding Alicia Hunt (Burtonverse)/Appearances to the page. -- Tupka217 20:00, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Never mind, you already figured it out. -- Tupka217 20:03, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Alicia is ready to be moved, I'm not sure if you want to do it or if I should so I'll leave it unless you say otherwise, I'll start on Eckhardt. And I tagged Alicia Grissom for deletion. - Doomlurker 20:10, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

The reality naming was handled quite badly (and not just in this case). At first, it's an unidentified universe. After the death of that universe's Lois Lane, the universe is suddenly identified as "Earth-Majestic". Clark and the mainstream Lois then goes to another universe, identified as "Earth-Omega".

A Prime Earth version appears in Super Sons. Kyletheobald (talk) 22:14, August 17, 2017 (UTC)

Starrware Labs to Starrware Industries

I'm suggesting, that we change this articles name to "Starrware Industries". As it's repeatably given in this name, in Power Girl's title. Starrware Labs is it's main subsidiary. But, there are most likely other subsidiaries. Like Karen Starr's software company Starrware, Inc. (until she sold it) and charitable orginizations, like the Starr Foundation for orphaned children. So, having this article named "Starrware Labs" is like naming the "Wayne Enterprises" article, for "WayneTech" (or any other of it's subsidairies). The preceding unsigned comment was added by Coq87rouge (talk • contribs).


I agree. -- Tupka217 21:06, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Goldilocks (New Earth) to Dorothy Leigh (New Earth)

Do we have any reference for this name change? I don't remember her ever being named. Kyletheobald 14:49, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Molly Mayne (New Earth) to Molly Maynne (New Earth)

Who's Who gives the name two n's, as does the Solomon Grundy miniseries, and every other instance I came across the name. Where does the one n spalling come from? -- Tupka217 13:22, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

It's spelled Molly Mayne in every issue of Infinity Inc. in which she appears. I tend to defer to Roy Thomas when it comes to the Golden Age characters. I've never seen it spelled Molly Maynne. Tony ingram 16:30, February 10, 2011 (UTC)


Merry Pemberton (New Earth) to Meredith Pemberton (New Earth)

Full first name revealed in Seven Soldiers: Bulleteer Vol 1 2. -- Tupka217 10:08, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Alan Armstrong (New Earth) to Alan Armstron (Earth-S)

Everything on that page is the Earth-S version of the character, and most pages (except Spy Smasher Vol 1) already link to it. Alan Armstrong (New Earth) has, so far, only appeared in Power of Shazam! Vol 1, in flashbacks only. -- Tupka217 21:06, February 9, 2011 (UTC)


William Perkins (New Earth) to William Perkins (Earth-X)

He's a quality character that has made few to no appearances in the DCU. Probably should just be moved over to Earth-X unless anyone has a reason it should stay. Kyletheobald 16:01, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

William Perkins is indeed a Quality character, but like a lot of the Quality characters we have listed as Earth-X charactyers, there's no actual evidence in-story that he ever went there. Roy Thomas established in All-Star Squadron thatall the Quality characters were originally from Earth-Two, not Earth-X; the only ones who went to Earth-X were those depicted as moving there in ASS #50, and the Mouthpiece and a lot of the others were not among them. They weren't native to that world. I guess a case might be made for Perkins being an Earth-Two character, but then surely he'd be a New Earth character post-COIE anyway? Tony ingram 16:27, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hehe, ASS... um, this seems like a broader issue entirely. We tend to default considering these characters as Earth-X, but that's a very specific choice... most of the established Quality characters aren't officially from Earth-X, and X isn't just a self-contained Quality Comics universe... it's a naziverse, that most of these characters don't seem to be necessarily inhabiting in their older appearances.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 16:34, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

Umm, then why default to placing them on Earth-X? Why not Earth-Two, which is where they would logically have originated? It isn't even being used consistently: look at Sandra Knight (Earth-Two), which is at Earth-Two despite being shown as Earth-X on the Phantom Lady disambig page. Tony ingram 16:41, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

Well, that last example is because even though she's technically from Earth-Two she's most commonly associated as an Earth-X character in the DCU.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 19:26, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

But they're all technically from Earth-Two! And Sandra Knight in particular made far more appearances as an Earth-Two character (In several years' worth of All-Star Squadron issues) than she ever did as an Earth-X character (in just two issues of JLA and two of COIE). In fact, the Freedom Fighters all appeared more often on Earth-One than they did Earth-X. And there seems no logical reason to place characters like Mouthpiece, William Dunn, Stormy Foster or Brian O'Brien on Earth-X when they were never seen as existing there. Particularly when others, like Black Condor (who did go there) are listed as Earth-Two characters. I don't think there were actually any characters confirmed as originating on Earth-X, in the end. Not after All-Star Squadron #31 and #50. It just seems a totally arbirary designation. Tony ingram 19:45, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

I just wanted to bring up something similar to this as I had noticed it, but my knowledge of ASS isn't that good Tony's. Other than Earth-1, Earth-2 and Earth-S, it's a bit of a mess with the old multiverse. Quality arguably the biggest. Answerguy's and DPeattie's villain articles probably need some tinkering in Earth designations. I mean, Blue Beetle/Dan Garret was originally Fox, but became Earth-Four (though they added an extra T at the end). Phantom Lady's Fox years were Earth-Two, but Dan Garret's Earth-Fox. Kid Eternity was retconned to be Earth-S, though he was Quality at first. I'm pretty sure some of his villains are labeled Earth-X. Luckily there weren't any crossovers in those days, so they still pretty much stand on their own and moving them wouldn't disrupt much. Do we move everything to Earth-Two, a hypothetical Earth-Quality, or are we lazy and keeping it this way? -- Tupka217 22:06, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

In fact, the existence of an 'Earth Quality' was posited more than twenty years ago in the Official COIE Index published by Eclipse, to explain away the post-war stories of various Quality characters like Phantom Lady and Doll Man who would logically have been on Earth-X by then. It made sense to me then, and still does-I think the ewarth-X designation is pretty meaningless since we know at least half the Quality characters didn't originate there and a lot of the original stories couldn't possibly have occurred there (pretty much any story published after Pearl Harbor, in fact). In theory, characters like Wildfire, Bill Dunn and the Clock could all have been and remained on Earth-Two as they were never seen to leave it, or they could have been on the COIE Index compilers' hypothetical 'Earth Q'. Maybe the simplest solution would be to simply place them all on either Earth-Two if they appeared in All-Star Squadron (and had conspicuously different pre-Crisis histories) or New earth if they didn't? Tony ingram 09:17, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed with that. On a similar note, Earth-X's Blackhawks were said to have been killed in '44 (in Justice League of America #107), but Quality published lots of post-war stories. The Silver Age Blackhawks lived on Earth-1, though, as E-1 Superman and Batman showed up once. -- Tupka217 11:26, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

Karl Kyle (New Earth) to King of the Cats II (New Earth)

Currently, there are two articles for this character, Karl Kyle (Earth-Two) and Karl Kyle (New Earth). Karl was originally Earth-Two. Though a dead ringer for Karl shows up in Seven Soldiers: Bulleteer #3, I find it premature to call him Karl and list him as Selina's brother, as her post-Crisis origins and family are completely different. I would, therefore, suggest moving this to King of the Cats II (New Earth). There was another KotC in Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #46, but that was apparently Thomas Blake. (Haven't read the issues, so I can't tell for sure) -- Tupka217 11:26, February 13, 2011 (UTC)


I-Ching (Earth-One) to I-Ching (New Earth)

He's had post-Crisis appearances. -- Tupka217 15:37, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Ironwolf to Ironwolf (Earth-One)

Same as Valcan, this swords and sandals guy is missing a continuity identifier. He's had only three appearances to date. -- Tupka217 22:13, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Make that four, possibly five appearances. The arguable one might be an ancestor cameoing in Twilight. However, Ironwolf proper appears in a semi-sequel/retelling of the Weird Worlds run, Ironwolf: Fires of the revolution, which is tied to Twilight by virtue of Homer Glint appearing in an extended sequence. Since Twilight manages to mangle such spatiotemporally distinct characters like Tommy Tomorrow, the Space Rovers, Star Hawkins, Manhunter 2070, Space Cabbie and the Space Museum, among others, into one bizarre narrative this is Earth-Chaykin, not Earth-One. --Lucien61 10:21, March 5, 2011 (UTC)
Twilight is an elseworlds story, but that does not mean all the characters in it are exclusive to that universe. -- Tupka217 12:49, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Santiago Vargas (New Earth) to Santiago Vargas (New Earth)

Real name given in Batman Inc. -- Tupka217 13:13, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Thor and Loki to New Earth

They've appeared post-Crisis, mainly in War of the Gods. -- Tupka217 20:35, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Adding to that: A lot of Norse gods appeared in Inferior 5 #4, which would make them Earth-Twelve versions... I very much feel making the New Earth articles "Earth-Twelve; Earth-One; New Earth".

Move James Olsen (Smallville) to Henry James Olsen (New Earth)

Turns out that Smallville Jimmy, now that he's dead, has a kid brother, whose name is also James. And that Big!Jimmy's name is Henry James. Just to make it not weird at all. So, if the kid is now officially supposed to grow up to be, well, Jimmy Olsen, may I add my voice to those who call for Big!Jimmy to be officially moved to Henry James Olsen. And then we can get a raise a toast to criminally unimaginative parents everywhere. CaptainKobold 23:22, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Shouldn't it at least go to Henry James Olsen (Smallville)? Kyletheobald 23:53, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Jonni Thunder

Given that almost every appearance Jonni ever made after her initial limited series was post-Crisis and clearly on New Earth, I see no reason why she's still listed as being on Earth-Two. Tony ingram 23:56, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Silver Ghost/Earth-X

Also, Raphael Van Zandt has now been established as existing on New Earth. And as far as I can see, pretty much every character currently attributed to Earth-X should in fact be listed as either New Earth or Earth-Two. There's no evidence most of them ever went to Earth-X (excluding those seen migrating there in All-Star Squadron), and pretty much no way most of them could have originated there given that Earh-X was overrun by nazis by 1942 and a lot of the characters in the earth-X category weren't introduced until after that, in adventures set on a conspicuously non Nazi dominated world. Tony ingram 00:19, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

DPeattie and Answerguy both created a lot of villain articles a while back, and added (Earth-X) to Quality characters. They're not "true" Earth-X. Pre-DP/AG Quality characters (and some Fox) are listed as Earth-Two, or Earth-Two (Retcon) (Phantom Girl and Doll Girl mostly). That's where most can go, as far as I'm concerned. -- Tupka217 17:14, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

I tend to agree. I'd place them on Earth-Two or, if they've been mentioned since COIE, New Earth. I don't think there's really any such thing as an 'Earth-X' character, except for characters like the Earth-X Martha Roberts. All the actual heroes appear to have migrated from earth-Two. Tony ingram 17:46, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

And three guesses what Martha Roberts is actually called...? -- Tupka217 18:09, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Well, if we're talking about the Earth-X Martha Roberts (daughter of a civilian sceintist, later murdered by the Nazis), she was called...Martha Roberts! As was the Earth-One version. It was only the Earth-Two/New Earth Martha who was ever Doll Girl. Tony ingram 18:13, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

My brain hurts. And we haven't even talked about continuity trainwreck Blackhawks yet. -- Tupka217 18:33, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, given that Martha has since been mentioned and reported dead in one of the recent freedom fighters mini-series', she should probably be moved to New Earth anyway, and her history updated properly to reflect that. Unless the feeling is that there should be separate entries for the three Martha's? Hmm...Tony ingram 18:35, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

It's almost always preferable to explain it in-universe so people don't have to go to three different pages to get the sstory on what's essentially one character... unless they're completely incompatible with each other like Hugo Strange or someone. Of course, it's always okay to make a main article for the New Earth version and link to priors in their history section.
- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 19:48, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

That might be worth doing, then. Either way, Martha is/was definitely a New Earth character now, and the New earth version is essentially indistinguishable from the Earth-Two version so I think a move is in order. The alternate Martha that probably deserves a separate entry would be the Earth-One version, who cropped up in a few places in the '70s. I think the Earth-X version was only seen once, and that was when she died. Tony ingram 21:21, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Whirlicane (Earth-One)

Whirlicane's real name was revealed to be Emilo Storn when he reappeared in Superman Vol 1 303.

Moved manually. --Tupka217 14:56, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

Shorty Morgan (Earth-Two) to Samuel Morgan (New Earth)

The newspaper obit in Detective Comics #572 calls him "Samuel (Shorty) Morgan". Which also makes him New Earth, as it's a year post-Crisis. -- Tupka217 14:56, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

Sandra of the Secret Service (Earth-Two) to Sandra McClaine (Earth-Two)

I actually don't have any reference on this other than it was already on her page. The contributor was Saturn12, who I don't even recognize. He or she did do most of his or her edits on really old-school stuff like that if it makes it more credible. Anyway, its now here for discussion. Kyletheobald 20:41, May 5, 2011 (UTC)

I checked the appearances that I have (leftovers from my image hunt) and couldn't find it, but I'll see if I can find more. Problem is both More Fun and New Fun are available only as really bad fiche scans, and Sandra only got one page per issue. -- Tupka217 20:54, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
I went over most appearances, but it's never McClaine or McClane. I haven't been able to find New Fun Comics #1, her first appearance, and many New Fun and More Fun issues she's in aren't scanned, nor reprinted. So unless whoever added it comes up with a source, I'd say don't move. -- Tupka217 21:33, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

Rose Psychic (Earth-Two) to Rose Psychic (New Earth)

She's had more post- than pre-crisis appearances, most of them in Vertigo. Making two separate articles is pointless, also because it's impossible to get a good image from New Fun/More Fun (see Sandra above). --Tupka217 08:33, May 11, 2011 (UTC)

Scarab (New Earth) to Maat Shadid (New Earth)

Revealed in Red Robin Vol 1 23. Kyletheobald 04:26, May 17, 2011 (UTC)

Talon the Hawk (New Earth) to Talon the Falcon (New Earth)

I'm not convinced as to the necessity of having the page at all, but for accuracy's sake, the article refers to the bird as a hawk, despite the fact that in every appearance, it is referred to as a falcon.

So, Talon is a falcon. Not a hawk. That's why I proposed the move. Tupka217 suggested he supported the move.

- Hatebunny 21:26, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
I haven't read Knightfall (yet) (still), but if he/she's a falcon, it should be moved. -- Tupka217 21:49, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Kendra Saunders (Earth-16) to Hawkwoman (Earth-16)

Greg Weissman calls her Hawkwoman all the time, and it's unclear whether she's actually Kendra. -- Tupka217 21:49, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Done manually. -- Tupka217 21:24, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

Catwoman III (New Earth) to Black (New Earth)

This was moved earlier but I put it back to restore the links. Personally, I don't think it should be moved. So far only her last name has been revealed and Black (New Earth) really is a awkward name (she's the daughter of Danton Black) even if its mostly correct. I don't know what is best; its here now for discussion at least. Kyletheobald 01:40, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

I think it looks uncouth and ugly for women. -- Tupka217 08:13, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Gigi Cuisimano or Gigi Cusimano?

Gigi Cuisimano (Pre-Zero Hour) NOTE: Only one "i" in her last name. Should be Gigi Cusimano (Pre-Zero Hour) Perhaps a "bot" move? (Anti-Lad 20:10, June 20, 2011 (UTC))


Gang (Earth-One) to Gang (New Earth)

The Gang was has nearly as many appearances Post-Crisis than it had Pre and its members more so. Kyletheobald 19:05, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Jacob Baker (New Earth) to Jacob Baker (Earth-One)

He made only one appearance in 1960, making him an Earth-One character.--1966batfan 18:15, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

Didn't the second Zebra-Man get his powers based on the same experiment or disaster or whatever that created the Jacob Baker version? That makes me assume that Baker is New Earth too. Kyletheobald 02:30, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, they both have diamagnetic powers.--1966batfan 15:30, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

Sturges Hellstrom (New Earth) to Sturges Hellstrom (Earth-One)

Only appeared twice in 1984, making him an Earth-One character.--1966batfan 18:32, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

Horace Canfield (New Earth) to Horace Canfield (New Earth)

"Bulldozer" Canfield and "Bulldozer" Nichols are two different characters. Canfield is the best known, in Our Army at War, Sgt. Rock and Suicide Squad Vol 2 and virtually everywhere else. Nichols had one initial appearance (before Canfield) and then returned in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. Vol 1 7 as a general. -- Tupka217 22:31, June 16, 2011 (UTC)


Sportsmaster (Earth-16) to Lawrence Crock (Earth-16)

In Young Justice Vol 2 7 Artemis's father is revealed to have the first name Lawrence. That's the same name as the New Earth Sportsmaster. Paired with his relationship with Artemis, I think that's enough proof to justify a move. Kyletheobald 18:39, August 28, 2011 (UTC) Definitely right.--1966batfan 20:28, August 28, 2011 (UTC)

Nothing's certain yet. --Tupka217 10:12, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Checkmate to Checkmate (New Earth)

I guess we need to move Checkmate to Checkmate (New Earth). Why? There are two different versions of Checkmate (the Comic Version and the Smallville Version). Maybe Checkmate will be a part of any other series or another earth in the DC Universe. --JimmyOlsen 16:31, September 3, 2011 (UTC)

Young Justice Vol 2 9 reveals his full name. Unfortunately, I missed it before creating his daughter and she needs moved now too. Kyletheobald 06:56, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

Lola (New Earth) to Lola MacIntire (New Earth)

Her full name was revealed in Catwoman Vol 4 3 --JimmyOlsen 07:17, November 17, 2011 (UTC)

I agree. The name Lola must have been used a number of times in comics. To prevent confusion, this one should be moved to the full name. My only question, are we still using (New Earth) for characters introduced post-Flashpoint? Joshua Weil 03:36, November 20, 2011 (UTC)
Yep. I asked Tupka a few weeks ago. It's still New Earth. I would prefer a new page for every "after-Flashpoint" character but it's still New Earth. --JimmyOlsen 13:40, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Okay but at least I am bringing this to your attention. -Adv193 01:21, January 19, 2012 (UTC)

Swamp Thing Annual Vol 2 to Swamp Thing Annual Vol 1

Long and the short: This is the only volume of Swamp Thing Annual. The base page, issue pages, and categories should be moved to reflect this.

- Byfield 19:52, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Annuals are named in conjunction with the series that was published at the time. --Tupka217 20:14, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
So, if DC published Swamp Thing Annual #1 this year, we would post it as "Swamp Thin Annual Vol 5 1" rather than "Vol 2" (actual 2nd volume of the indecia title) or "Vol 3"?
- Byfield 23:48, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
Yes. Like the Supergirl Annuals, Vol 4 and Vol 5. --Tupka217 08:21, January 23, 2012 (UTC)

According to the man himself, Chua was something he was stuck with by immigration, his real last name is Chan. The MDP has him listed as "Ernesto Chan", but he goes by Ernie. Currently, his stuff is split up between Chua and Chan, likely due to whatever he used in his signature at the time.

Darwin has shown up in a couple of Justice League-related books recently written by James Robinson. Kyletheobald 22:32, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Intergang to Intergang (New Earth)

I think we should move it to New Earth so we can use the main one as a disambig. There are 3 other versions at this point, Smallville, Young Justice and DCU online. Kyletheobald 04:43, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

And DCAU. --Tupka217 08:34, December 17, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it should be moved. --JimmyOlsen (talk) 00:36, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Starfire (Earth-One) to Starfire (New Earth)

Its been shown that she is a part of New Earth during the Time Masters mini. I would also prefer using Starfire instead of Starfire I because Starfire appears to be her actual name. The other 2 people to use it have other real names to differentiate anyway. Kyletheobald 19:56, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

Ranger (New Earth) to Ranger (New Earth)

I see he's in the move category; why though? He has a total of 4 appearances listed and in 3 of them, he's called the Dark Ranger. Is the Ranger name more legitimate because it was first? Kyletheobald 18:33, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Selena (New Earth) to Selena (Earth-S)

The character is only associated with the Fawcett/Earth-S incarnation of Mary Marvel.

Deanna (New Earth) to Deanna Clay (New Earth)

Yeah ... what can I say? It's her real name. That's all --JimmyOlsen (talk) 12:38, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Gilda Gold (Earth-Two) to Gilda Kent (Earth-Two)

The maiden name was not revealed until Batman #329. --Tupka217 09:35, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Francis Stone (Dakotaverse) to Martin Scaponi (Dakotaverse)

Back when this was created, I moved it to Francis Stone, which is his name in the DCAU; I misread the wikipedia article and thought it was the name for the original too. He's only referred to as Biz Money B in the comics, but the trading card set (can upload the card if required) identifies him as Martin Scaponi. --Tupka217 16:46, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

@Tupka217

You may want to consult with Milestone's co-founders Michael Davis, Denys Cowan Christopher Priest, and Derek Dingle to confirm which name for Hotstreak is correct. Another option would be former Milestone writers and artists like John Rozum or Mark Bright.

If those options don't work, then I think you should follow the card as the primary source for Hotstreak's real name.

Zeraze1 21:42, January 7, 2012 (UTC) zeraze1

I can't find anything in the Static issues I have (all but 5 or 6) except the nickname Biz Money B. I think it's safe to move to Scaponi. --Tupka217 22:09, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Mark Merlin (Earth-One) to Mark Merlin (New Earth)

He's appeared both dead and alive Post-Crisis: dead in Animal Man and Reign in Hell, alive in Superman #690 (which included an "I thought you were dead") and Xombi (haven't read it). That's why I don't think a separate New Earth article would work. --Tupka217 (talk|wall) 10:27, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

Grösshorn Eule (New Earth)

Why should his name be translated into English when no other characters are? We still have Ubermensch and Fledermaus in German. Kyletheobald 21:51, February 21, 2012 (UTC)


Wonder Boy (New Earth) to Wonder Boy (Quality Universe)

The character Wonder Boy (New Earth) was never officially implemented into the DC New Earth. Seeing as he is a Quality Comics character and Earth-X is the QC character's home, I believe the page should be moved. Watermint 00:37, October 26, 2011 (UTC)


Giggles (Super Friends) to Giggles (New Adventures of Batman)

The character was unique to the Filmation show, not the one by Hana-Barbera and the is nothing to show or suggest that the two shows shared a continuity.

- Byfield 18:30, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

That era of animation is an all-out mess. Doesn't help that the Super Friends wiki covers both HB and Filmation. --Tupka217 (talk|wall) 06:47, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
most of the Filmation stuff has been released on a DVD called "Superheroes: The Filmation Adventures". I think (Filmation Adventures) could be a handy catch-all for all the Filmation series. --Tupka217 (talk|wall) 16:41, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
That would work and it would minimize the dab and "universe" information instead of relying on the individual show titles.

Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol 1 1 to Fury of Firestorm Vol 2 1

We had this discussion before, I still think it should be Vol 2. Firestorm Vol 2 is actually Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol 1. -- Tupka217 22:38, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

I agree. Before Firestorm Vol 2 it was renamed to plain "Firestorm" it WAS The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol 1. It's like counting Aquaman Vol 7 as Vol 6 just because the real Vol 6 got renamed to "Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis". Smash Brawler 23:31, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
I also agree. I was very confused at this one being called volume 1. That is incorrect. Goblyn4evil 22:30, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
Wouldn't it be even more accurate to have it at Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol 1? Kyletheobald 03:02, December 17, 2011 (UTC)
Since it's marketed on DC's website that way, Id say yes.--08:34, December 17, 2011 (UTC)'Tupka217
I would agree as well. Popluvah22 04:31, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
How about this. Firestorm Vol 2 to Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol 1, and Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol 1] to Fury of Firestorm Vol 2? I don't want to have to distinguish between "the nuclear man" and "the nuclear men" when it's really the same book anyway. - Hatebunny (talk) 19:35, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

I know this is a very old topic by now but I just want to add my two cents and agree with this proposed move. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 06:22, January 25, 2014 (UTC)

Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet to Wonder Woman's Invisible Plane

Because the Golden Age version was not a jet. --Tupka217 16:38, September 21, 2013 (UTC)


Victor Frankenstein (Earth-Two) to Baron Frankenstein (Earth-Two)

Nowhere in his one appearance is this character's first name given. I'm not sure where "Victor" came from. Shadzane (talk) 18:43, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

As it's based on the fictional character who appears in Shelley's (public domain) book, it stands to reason that his name would be Victor and not something else, whether mentioned or not. - Hatebunny (talk) 16:41, January 21, 2014 (UTC)
But the whole theme of the story was that Shelley's book was very different from what "really" happened. In the book, the monster is made up of revived corpses. In the "real history", the monster was just a very tall guy who went crazy when he got an incomplete shot of adrenalin. Etc. So we would actually expect Shelly's book to change Frankenstein's first name. Shadzane (talk) 18:29, January 21, 2014 (UTC)
... would we, though? - Hatebunny (talk) 19:16, January 21, 2014 (UTC)

Mister Toxic (Prime Earth) to Hugh Marder Clone (Prime Earth)

Boy, this page has been renamed a couple of times, hasn't it? Anyway, technically, this is what he is. He's a faulty clone of Hugh Marder, not his own separate person. Just like Bruce Wayne Clone (New Earth), I think this name change is necessary. --- Haroldrocks talk 22:14, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

I don't know how anyone else (besides Harold) feels about it, but I'd rather leave this at Mister Toxic than call it "Hugh Marder (clone)", if only because I hate (qualifier)s - Hatebunny (talk) 16:41, January 21, 2014 (UTC)

Kindly Ones to Three Witches

Kindly Ones is a translation of Eumenides, one of the names of the Erinyes (and used for them in-universe). Three Witches covers their function better, as that's their primary role in the DCU/Gaimanverse. Their Who's Who is even called that. --Tupka217 18:18, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Teen Titans Go Vol 1 + the series to Teen Titans Go! Vol 1

I've seen this for a long time but never had the audacity to bring up a move. However, I've just noticed that a new Teen Titans Go! comic series is arriving next week, based on the newer show of course. It would be odd to have a Teen Titans Go! Vol 2 if Vol 1 technically does not exist. I know it's a lot of work to move, but it seems necessary. --- Haroldrocks talk 02:19, December 11, 2013 (UTC)

Patrick O'Brien (Earth-Teen Titans) to Patrick O'Brian (Earth-Teen Titans)

I goofed up. I took the last name "O'Brien" straight from the page without even bothering to check. The appearance and image pages need it, too. --- Haroldrocks talk 01:38, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

I can't recall how many times I made that mistake. --Tupka217 11:03, January 20, 2014 (UTC)

New Gods (New Earth) to New Gods

How about we move it back? New Gods is an alien race, not a group. And I don't like having a disambig for just the race and then a half-dozen of comics with that name. --Tupka217 10:57, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Something will have to be done with New Gods first. The bot can't move one page to another that already exists. - Hatebunny (talk) 16:41, January 21, 2014 (UTC)

Max Cash was CR too. --Tupka217 15:26, December 28, 2013 (UTC)

Athyns of Karrakan to Athyns of Karrakan (New Earth)

Consus, the Erudite God created the page without the dab. This was after creating the related Sparta of Synriannaq (New Earth) correctly. To be frank though, I'd think dropping the "... of Planet" from both would also be correct. - Byfield (talk) 22:39, December 31, 2013 (UTC)

The thing was, Athyns was already linked everywhere as Athyns, and Sparta as Sparta of Synriannaq. I'm okay, especially since we, AFAIK, do not have a homeworld of Xanthi and consistency and all. --Tupka217 11:35, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Theia (New Earth) to Thia (New Earth)

Only (or at least, predominantly) referred to as Thia in the DCU. --Tupka217 14:28, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Sumo the Samurai (New Earth) to Sumo (New Earth)

To stay consistent with our naming. As far as I know, he doesn't really go by "Sumo the Samurai" anyway. --- Haroldrocks talk 23:37, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rodeo Rick (New Earth) to Rodeo Rick (Earth-One)

As a far as I can discern, this guy had no post-crisis appearances or mentions, and is strictly an Earth-One character Shadzane (talk) 23:19, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Floyd Lawton (Prime Earth) to Floyd Lawton, Jr. (Prime Earth)

As revealed in Justice League of America Vol 3 7.1: Deadshot, Prime Earth Deadshot is named after his father. Changing his page name to "Jr." would be both correct and also make room for a potential "Floyd Lawton, Sr. (Prime Earth)" page. --- Haroldrocks talk 01:36, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

It would also annoy the hell out of me every time I have to link to Deadshot :( - Hatebunny (talk) 16:41, January 21, 2014 (UTC)

Caesar's not a surname. --Tupka217 11:46, January 20, 2014 (UTC)

Olympia (Crisis on Two Earths) to Olympiad (Crisis on Two Earths)

Per this. Back when it was created, both versions of the name were floating around on the web, but this one seems to put it in the -d camp. --Tupka217 19:13, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

Roy McQueen (Earth 2) to Connor Hawke (Earth 2)

If your like me and read the Earth 2 series would know that in Earth 2 Vol 1 14 they introduced the character Roy McQueen as Red Arrow, a World Amy with red hair and a robotic right arm, The character originally appeared to based on Roy Harper (New Earth), but in Earth 2 Vol 1 20 Red Arrow was speaking to Sonia Sato (Earth 2) who refereed to him as Connor Hawke. So I ask you my fellow wiki members to help me in correcting the information on the page and changing the name. (Shiplord13 (talk) 22:32, February 5, 2014 (UTC)).

So what´s the alias - Roy or Connor? If it´s Connor as listed in the character´s page, a move would make no sense since the real name determines the naming of the page. ---Lucien61 (talk) 23:41, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
I never remember seeing Roy McQueen in print to begin with. If I remember right, someone said it came from interviews. I'm fine having it moved to Connor. Kyletheobald (talk) 01:25, February 6, 2014 (UTC)
I don't think it has appeared in print either. It was James Robinson who created Red Arrow and said in interviews that his real name is Roy McQueen. However, now Tom Taylor has taken over writing duties and Sonia Sato calls him Connor Hawke, so either it's a mistake, Taylor didn't know or Taylor didn't want to go with Robinson's story for Red Arrow so instead made him the New 52 Connor Hawke. Not sure how you make a decision in this situation, unless you just wait and see what he gets called in later issues then currently call the article Red Arrow (Earth 2). - Doomlurker (talk) 14:42, February 6, 2014 (UTC)
If that's the case, move to Connor and mention the McQueen thing in a note, preferably with a source. --Tupka217 14:45, February 6, 2014 (UTC)
It was WonderCon last year, there are various sources stating Robinson's choice of name (Roy McQueen) such as: this. However, change of writer, change of decision, just like how he made Red Tornado into Lois. So it should be moved. - Doomlurker (talk) 16:53, February 6, 2014 (UTC)
Okay so with all of the support and evidence, is it safe for me to say that everyone is fine with the page being changed? - Shiplord13 (talk) 18:28, February 11, 2014 (UTC)
Yep. She will be moved next time we run a bot through. Kyletheobald (talk) 00:44, February 12, 2014 (UTC)

Loreli (New Earth) to Lorelei I (New Earth)

Not really - both are acceptable. And since comics can't be botmoved, but have to manually moved, with all their subpages and categories, plus relinking, I'm saying no. --Tupka217 12:23, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

Cartel to Cartel (Earth-One)

There's a new Cartel introduced in Lois Lane #1. Also, Penitente Cartel and Escabedo Cartel. --Tupka217 18:42, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Is that group in Lois Lane officially called "Cartel"? From reading the comic, I got the impression that others in the criminal underworld called it "the cartel" because they thought it was a drug-smuggling-and-selling organization (and Lois picked that up), but it's much more then that and didn't call itself Cartel.

Justice Batallion to Justice Battalion (Earth-22)

Battalion was misspelled on the name of the article. It would make sense to move it to the proper page... but shouldn't we also add (Earth-22) to the name of the title? I realize the organization only exists in Kingdom Come, but for the sake of continuity would it make sense? TheD3xus (talk) 14:18, March 27, 2014 (UTC)

There should be a disambig because the JSA was known as the Justice Battalion for awhile during World War II. That's where they got the name for the Kingdom Come group. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:33, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

The kryptonian character had first appeared Earth 2 Vol 1 19 as just Val, but in the most recent issue Earth 2 Vol 1 22 it was revealed that his full name is Val-Zod. I feel this is a minor change that can be easily corrected. (Shiplord13 (talk) 21:02, April 2, 2014 (UTC))

Injustice: Gods Among Us to Injustice: Gods Among Us (Video Game)

Paraphrasing what I wrote on Tupka's profile.

Currently, Injustice: Gods Among Us serves as a Universe and a Video Game article. There needs to be some differentiation between the two, because of the nature of its tie-in comic.

Injustice: Gods Among Us (Video Game) and Injustice: Gods Among Us

There is currently too much information on just the video game page, and it contains a lot of info from the comic that would be better suited for a Universe article (characters, information, images) that does not directly concern the game. The universe page would still incorporate information from the game.

The developers of the video game are planning to produce a sequel to the game (confirmed at WonderCon 2014), and DC has confirmed there will be a Year Three to the comic. There needs to be a way to unify these two games (and the comics) under the Universe article.

Idea: Rename the main article to Injustice: Gods Among Us (Video Game) and create a separate article for the Universe page (Injustice: Gods Among Us).

Vatman (Lois & Clark) to Kal-El Clone (Lois & Clark)

Looking back at the episode, "Vatman" is never an alias used by the character or used in the episode in any way. Nor is it in the credits. Thus he is an unnamed Superman clone and his article should be named "Kal-El Clone".Coq87rouge (talk) 09:19, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

His legal first name is Harold, so we should be using that as the article names. Keep in mind that Harold Jordan (New Earth) is a separate character. JamesBCrazy (talk) 13:51, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

No. The main page, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), is named like that for search optimalization. People are going to look for Hal, not Harold. On the other characters, it's not a major issue. Just like not every Barry Allen has to be named Bartholomew, not every Hal Jordan has to be called Harold on the site. --Tupka217 13:59, August 3, 2014 (UTC)
I'd go one further on the alt-Earth versions of characters - It isn't appropriate to assume the "legal" name is the same as the mainstream character, either at the time or later. If the character's name isn't revealed in the story, we should stick with the commonly used one as our {{conjecture}}, not the more obscure "birth/legal" name. That is if we are going to indulge in such speculation at all.
On a similar point, with characters like Hal and Barry it would be nice to have a Note pointing out when the "legal" name was added to canon since they are almost never used in story.

IIRC the stories solidly set on Earth-X never featured that character, just mentioned him and his squadron. And I can't remember for the life of be if he was called anything other than "Blackhawk" in the Earth-Two appearances. If I've got that right, wouldn't we be applying an Earth-One name - on that retcons have changed into an alias IIRC - to the Earth-Two character with no evidence?

That depends on how much they were changed by Crisis. If they were essentially unchanged, or if the changes are minor and can be explained in a paragraph, then they get a combined Earth-One/New Earth page (named New Earth, by convention). If they were rebooted by Crisis, that's when they get two pages.
And all the characters I've listed recently were mainly unchanged by Crisis. In fact, their New Earth appearances were basically cameos saying "Hey, this character still exists" (Except for Volcano Man, who was being groomed as a JLA villain). Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:21, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Only proving my lack of knowledge of these old comics. I'm out of my element with them. Thanks for pointing that out, Shadzane. :) What universe designation should we go with then? New Earth? Earth-Two? Earth-One? (And do any of these characters already have pages with Leave it to Binky?) --- Haroldrocks talk 14:15, September 3, 2014 (UTC)
I think it's one of those love titles that, like the comedy titles of Earth-Twelve, exists outside regular continuity. I think it needs separate tags, not three or more pages for regular continuity versions. Just (Binky) or (Leave it to Binky) is fine with me. --Tupka217 14:50, September 3, 2014 (UTC)
Date with Debbi is not a love title. It is a teen humor title, like Archie. It had a fairly compact run (1969-1972), so it doesn't have the continuity-busting problem of the characters being teenagers for decades. And it doesn't have all the supernatural and science-fiction elements that got Swing with Scooter assigned to Earth-Twelve. I see no reason at all it cannot be Earth-One. (I'm only talking about Date with Debbi here; Leave it to Binky is more complicated.) Shadzane (talk) 15:01, September 3, 2014 (UTC)

Werner Vertigo (Arrowverse) to The Count (Arrowverse)

The Count's name is never confirmed. I was fine with it being Werner Vertigo before, but now that we have a new Count Vertigo named Werner Zytle (Arrowverse), I can't begin to think about the probability that the first Count and his unrelated successor would have the same first name. It'd be better just to move the first. I don't care what it's moved to. I went with The Count (Arrowverse), thinking that we could handle the "The" like we do with The Flash (2014 TV Series). I'm also fine with Count (Arrowverse), Count Vertigo (Arrowverse), and Count Vertigo I (Arrowverse), although he's only referred to "Count Vertigo" posthumously in passing by Barry. --- Haroldrocks talk 21:37, November 24, 2014 (UTC)

I agree. He is only ever called "The Count" or, in his last episode, "Count Vertigo" (as he calls himself on his TV broadcast he makes). Although he does seem like he could be Werner Vertigo, the name is never stated, and it's said that not even the SCPD knows his actual identity, just knowing him by that alias of "The Count".GZilla311 (talk) 21:41, November 24, 2014 (UTC)

Again, I agree with this change. I never really thought it should have excluded the "The" to begin with, considering it seemed to make it harder to find the movie for people who look up the other name.GZilla311 (talk) 23:44, November 24, 2014 (UTC)

Why is an exception being made just for these films? If we're going to include "The" in titles that have them, then they all should have them. It makes it inconsistent just having "The" for these films. -- Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) 14:22, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

The Others to The Others (Prime Earth)

Since we have a futures end version of the team, a comic series, and a one-shot which uses the name we need to move the page to The Others (Prime Earth) and make The Others page into a disambiguation page. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 06:35, January 12, 2015 (UTC)

Here's a possible alternate solution. We could put the disambig at Others. - Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 07:14, January 12, 2015 (UTC)
Regardless of where we put the disambiguation page we'd still have to give the page a prime earth designation as we have teams from 2 different realities with the same name. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 09:39, January 12, 2015 (UTC)
Are they not exactly the same team only five years later? The whole point of not using an Earth-designation for teams is that the core of what the team is persists regardless of what reality it exists in and who its members are. It's just an annoying problem that most teams end up being requiring one for a disambig. But if the Future's End version is essentially the same team, it doesn't need a move. (unless someone wants to bare-knuckle box me over it). - Hatebunny (talk) 18:22, March 4, 2015 (UTC)
Well we have 2 versions of the team and 2 comic book series that the name "The Others" refers to so I think that a disambiguation page is called for. Also, there are some important differences with the Prime Earth and Futures End versions of the team. The Dead King is the leader of the Others in Futures End, but Aquaman is the leader on Prime Earth. Also, Mera is an enemy of the Others in Futures End while she's an ally of theirs on Prime Earth. Also, Futures End is meant to be a Possible Future as are all of the Alternate Futures they've portrayed in the past. Terry's whole mission in Futures End is to prevent it from happening.

Actually, I'd say the story in All-Star Squadron #64 involves a rebooted (not carried-over) New Earth Funnyface, and so we need two pages. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 06:02, February 2, 2015 (UTC)
Well... I haven't read the All-Star story in years, but I don't remember much retconning of the villain. He just fought the All-Stars instead of Superman. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 08:22, February 2, 2015 (UTC)
Isn't that enough? The same plot, but his antagonists were completely different? Also, don't we generally consider all Superman characters as being rebooted post-Crisis? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:32, February 2, 2015 (UTC)
Usually, but there are exceptions. Ultra-Humanite for one. True, he didn't only fight Superman Pre-Crisis but up until the '80s he did.

The page should get a universe designation. It doesn't seem right that we have a disambig for Outlaw but then have an actual page for Outlaws. I'm thinking we move the team to having a universe designation and then redirect Outlaws to Outlaw. --- Haroldrocks talk 11:23, February 26, 2015 (UTC)

I cannot find where this character appeared (or was mentioned) post-Crisis. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:28, February 26, 2015 (UTC)

EMP Mask to Smart Mask

The wording of the name initially was a mistake. It was called the Smart Mask in its first appearance, and only renamed the EMP Mask after its transition to Prime Earth. The first name seems far more appropriate as a result, not to mention it is heavily implied to be its official designation by its creator, Lucius Fox.GZilla311 (talk) 22:47, February 27, 2015 (UTC)

Nathaniel Wilson (Prime Earth) to Charles Wilson (Prime Earth)

Even though it's a rather blatant change to his identity (from his current combat ability down to his very name) from Deathstroke Vol 2 to Deathstroke Vol 3, Tony S. Daniel has altered the identity of Deathstroke's father, and the pages should probably change accordingly. Unless we shouldn't.GZilla311 (talk) 22:40, March 1, 2015 (UTC)

White Lantern Corps to White Lantern Corps (New Earth)

Since they've introduced a Prime Earth version of the White Lantern Corps in the 40th issue of Green Lantern: New Guardians and since many of the characters who were members of the White Lantern Corps in the previous continuity were never members in the current continuity I believe it is time to move the page to a New Earth designation and create a Prime Earth page for the current incarnation.

Leslie Townes Hope (Earth-Twelve) to Leslie Townes Hope (New Earth)

Bob Hope's existence on New Earth is established in All-Star Squadron #66. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 00:24, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

This might be an example where we need more than one version. I don't think the Earth-Twelve stuff will fit with a cameo here. Kyletheobald (talk) 02:11, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
I think that, for Real People, we should have conservation of pages. If they appeared pre-Crisis (in normal realities, not something weird like Earth-Three or an Imaginary Story reality) and post-Crisis (on New Earth), they only get one page (no matter how different they were pre- and post-Crisis).
(I guess this means that I consider Earth-Twelve a normal reality.) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 02:43, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

Super Friends (TV Series) Episode: Wanted: The Super Friends to Super Friends (TV Series) Episode: Wanted: The Superfriends

Proposed by DrJohnnyDiablo as per episode title card. See here.

I've also commented there as follows:

There is a massive amount of inconsistency with the term with it being rendered "Super Friends", "SuperFriends", and "Superfirends". It doesn't help that the 1978 season used all caps without cameling. The constant used on the Database has been "Super Friends".

- Byfield (talk) 22:02, March 21, 2015 (UTC)

Bruce Wayne (Anansi) to Bruce Wayne (Anansi Timeline)

Anansi is used as a disambig, so it can't be used for a reality designation. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 15:17, March 22, 2015 (UTC)

In Convergence: Crime Syndicate Vol 1 1 it was revealed that Super-Woman's first name was Lois as Owlman called here Lois twice in the issue and Power Ring called her Lois after the syndicate was transported to the DC One Million Metropolis. With this revelation, I suggest moving the page to Lois (Earth-Three). DalekSupreme13 (talk) 08:10, May 7, 2015 (UTC)

When I had originally split the list in 1/2 I has put in a note on Actors for an eventual split to Actors A-F, Actors G-L, Actors M-R, and Actors S-Z. I could go do the re-bundling now and that would leave moving A-L to A-F and M-Z to either M-Z or S-Z (I'd tend to the latter). - Byfield (talk) 16:29, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Hetepkheti Tefnakhte has only ever made 3 appearances in DC's history and all 3 appearances took place on Earth-Two and they were all years before the crisis on infinite earths, so the New Earth reality designation doesn't apply to him.

I moved this, but that border between Earths Two and One is unclear. Some argue Earth-One's Bat family's first appearance is 1952, in Superman #76. That's what the Batman article has. At any rate, the Batman appearances should be reindexed. --Tupka217 14:45, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, the first Earth-One Batman story is Superman #76, but that is an early outlier because that is the origin of the (Earth-One) Superman/Batman team. In general, this database has the border between Earth-Two and Earth-One Batman in (cover date) November 1955, between Detective Comics #224 & Detective Comics #225. I believe that is based on the DarkMark indexes, but I don't know for sure, I wasn't here when that was decided. It is true, other comics indexers place the break elsewhere (for example, Mike of Mike's Amazing World places it between Detective Comics #202 and Detective Comics #203), but for now this database is built on the Nov 55 border. If someone wants to change that, they can I guess, but it would be lots of work for an arbitrary distinction. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 17:42, January 6, 2016 (UTC)

Maxwell Taylor (Smallville) to George Taylor (Smallville)

His full name is given as "George Maxwell Taylor", making Maxwell his middle name and not first name.KylieMfever (talk) 08:52, October 5, 2015 (UTC)

But what does that mean? We don't use characters full names as page names (unless it helps with disambiguation), so we usually drop the middle names because they are irrelevant (just like in real life). But in this character's case, his first name is irrelevant. He doesn't use it except for signing contracts. Max/Maxwell is the name he uses in every day life. So, wouldn't Maxwell Taylor be correct? (Unless there is a "Always use first name as Page Name" rule I don't know about. Or he actually used George as a child, which would fit the "Use earliest name as Page Name" rule.) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:27, October 5, 2015 (UTC)
Frankly it comes down to what name was used most prevalently in the single episode he appeared in. If it was "Max", then that is where we should start.
At that point we run into the tendency on site to expand shortened names if we got a "fuller" one that can be cited. So "Max" becomes "Maxwell" for the article title if we've got a nameplate visible in the ep, or it is verbally recognized in the dialogue.
Beyond that, it becomes more than a little pointless to insist that the article be moved from "Maxwell Taylor" to "George Taylor" because there is a reference some where in the ep, I hope, that provides his full given name. This is an extremely minor character in the series who uses a shortened version of his middle given name. That's enough for me to say "Maxwell" is fine for the article title.
If the intent of the move is to more closely align the article with the dab page George Taylor and the original character George Taylor (Earth-Two) the "Real Name" parameter and the information in the notes section are sufficient for that.

So what if Hal and Wally don't have Prime Earth pages? There are a lot of New Earth characters that haven't split into Prime Earth and they still have New Earth in their titles. And the titles don't really affect google searches that much, which is why the Marvel Database abandoned that system. When searching "wonder woman", Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) doesn't show up until page two. When searching "Deathstroke", Slade Wilson (New Earth) is the third link on the list.

John Constantine (Constantine TV Series) to John Constantine (Arrowverse)

Since Wendy Mericle confirmed back in 2015 that the Constantine series was part of the Arrowverse[1] and the fact that the animated revival of the series that will premiere in CW See is going to be part of the Arrowverse in the same vein as the Vixen series, It only makes sense to move the John Constantine page to the Arrow universe designation along with the other articles listed below. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 03:33, January 11, 2017 (UTC)

As I mentioned in the talk page at the time, it's anything but certain. It all hinges on the answer "absolutely", but it's not clear what the question was, verbatim. The description after absolutely only mentions the look of the character, not the history or the TV series. I'd be much more comfortable if we just mae a seperate John Constantine (Arrowverse) page. It's not as clear cut as Supergirl. --Tupka21712:24, January 11, 2017 (UTC)

The 80s Dial "H" for Hero series is one of those early 80s series where all the characters are marked New Earth, even though very few appeared post-Crisis. It's like whoever created all the pages said "It was so close to Crisis, let's go ahead and make them post-Crisis."
So, if we decide to change this guy to Earth-One (which I think is the right choice), we should probably change all the others. Are we prepared to flip that switch and undo the original decision that everyone in this series is New Earth? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 07:34, February 13, 2017 (UTC)

This is not a one-shot. It is actually part of a three-issue series given away by Kellogg's in 1955. The series has no official name (because it has no indicia), but it has become known as Superman (Kellogg's) to collectors. The series is numbered strangely -- #1, #1A and #1B.

Butch Gilzean (Gotham) to Cyrus Gold (Gotham)

It was revealed in the Season 3 finale of Gotham that Butch's birth name is Cyrus Gold and that he had it legally changed to Butch Gilzean for unknown reasons. With this new bit of information I suggest we rename the page Cyrus Gold (Gotham) to reflect this. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 11:26, June 9, 2017 (UTC)

Oppose - If it's legally changed, it's still his real name. That would make Cyrus Gold his former name. Just look at the discussion at Talk:Theodore Galavan (Gotham). DarkKnight2149 19:31, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
That's not the same. Galavan's family changed it some time before he was born. Theo was born Galavan. Gilzean was born Gold. --Tupka217 19:34, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
True, but I'm not sure that makes the name change less valid. If he changed it, then "Cyrus Gold" isn't his real name anymore. DarkKnight2149 20:05, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
It's the procedure here to use a character's birth name as the Page Name whenever possible, because it is (presumably) less likely to change than their current legal name. Once a birth name is locked down, it probably won't ever change again. (That's why all the Superman pages are named Kal-El instead of Clark Kent, despite the fact that Clark Kent is unquestionably his current legal name.) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 20:16, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
Except there's a strong possibility that he will never be called "Cyrus Gold" again. All of the characters know him as Butch Gilzean, the birth name reveal was there to tell the audience that he's Solomon Grundy, and he'll probably end up coming back as Grundy (given that he's flat-out dead). DarkKnight2149 20:54, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
The naming procedures for the articles really don't care if the full birth name is used once or used constantly. Once it has been established, that's where the page is moved to,
-Byfield (talk) 00:31, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
The only thing I see in the Naming Conventions pertains to the surname, "Surnames must be the birthname, unless specifically legally changed." In this instance, both the first name and surname are legally changed. DarkKnight2149 02:38, June 23, 2017 (UTC)

Why was this page moved, especially given the quote listed straight out of the Naming Conventions above? DarkKnight2149 04:55, July 27, 2017 (UTC)

Cyrus Gold (Earth-One) to Solomon Grundy (Earth-One)

This Solomon Grundy was a duplicate of the original on a different Earth and was never Cyrus Gold. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 13:50, June 19, 2017 (UTC)

But if he is a duplicate of the original Solomon Grundy (albeit in his supervillain identity), wouldn't that make him a duplicate of... Cyrus Gold? DarkKnight2149 22:19, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
Yes, but literally no one ever called him Cyrus Gold. His only name was Solomon Grundy. Sewer zombies don't have birth certificates. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 00:37, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
(ec) IIRC, the back story for the Earth-One Solly was that he was created with an alien McGuffin as duplicate of the Earth-Two version at that point in time but with no memories, such as they were. It wasn't a case of copying Cyrus and then making him into a new Solly. There for, he's a clone/copy of Solly, not Cyrus.
- Byfield (talk) 00:39, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
But what I'm getting at is that Solly is Cyrus. So if he was a duplicate of Solomon Grundy, he would have to be a duplicate of Cyrus Gold as they are the same character (regardless of which identity the duplicate uses). DarkKnight2149 02:42, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
Bring on the Frege: technically, they're not the same. The reference is the same, but the sense isn't. Cyrus Gold was the character when he was alive. Solomon Grundy was the character after his death. --Tupka217 04:47, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
If Solomon Grundy were a separate entity that possessed Cyrus Gold's corpse, I would 100% agree with you. But Grundy is just the identity of Gold when he was reanimated as a zombie. DarkKnight2149 14:03, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
That's not what sense and reference means. Cyrus Gold is dead. He no longer exists. The reanimated corpse is just called Solomon Grundy. --14:14, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
With all due respect, if that's the case, then why isn't the main Solomon Grundy page called Solomon Grundy (New Earth), if we are to consider Cyrus Gold to be 'dead' and the reanimated corpse to be Grundy? I feel like most of the arguments being made work both ways. DarkKnight2149 00:39, June 24, 2017 (UTC)
Most versions of Grundy are the reanimated corpse of Cyrus Gold. This was not true in the case of the Earth-One Grundy. There was never, as far as we know, an Earth-One counterpart of Cyrus Gold. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 12:48, July 25, 2017 (UTC)
But being a duplicate of the Cyrus Gold (New Earth) makes him a duplicate of Cyrus Gold, because they are the same character. If we are to treat Gold and Grundy as separate characters, I don't see why we shouldn't just move all of the pages to Solomon Grundy (Insert Earth here). I don't really think this is that much different from other pages, such as Bruce Wayne Clone (New Earth), which is specifically a clone of Batman. DarkKnight2149 17:24, July 25, 2017 (UTC)
This discussion is over. The move should go ahead. --Tupka217 17:28, July 25, 2017 (UTC)

The main multiverse doesn't have an Earth 52 -- there are 52 earths, but numbering starts at Earth 0, so the highest it goes is Earth 51. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 21:06, September 19, 2017 (UTC)

Reopening this now that the issue's out. Should we specify that Earth 52 takes place in the Dark Multiverse? (Dark Multiverse: Earth 52)? Or is (Earth 52) fine and implied to be in the Dark Multiverse? We're (theoretically) going to have to do this for all the other Dark Knights, so we should figure this out sooner than later. --- Haroldrocks talk 16:36, September 20, 2017 (UTC)
How many Dark Multiverse: Earth 52 pages will there be? I think for now we can just keep it at DM. --Tupka217 16:46, September 20, 2017 (UTC)
I just updated the comic page, so you can see. They namedrop a lot and show plenty of characters from Earth 52 that aren't just the Red Death. It doesn't have to be right now, we can wait to see what the other one-shots do with their world building, but I'm thinking Earth 52 should be treated like any other multiverse Earth. --- Haroldrocks talk 16:59, September 20, 2017 (UTC)
Actually, it's "Earth -52". That is a negative sign, not a dash.
- Byfield (talk) 21:14, September 20, 2017 (UTC)
But "Earth-0" is written with a dash in the same issue. I'll say, it does look like it's slightly closer to the 52 but if there's another source that could prove one or the other I'd prefer it. --- Haroldrocks talk 21:43, September 20, 2017 (UTC)

Apparently, from what I understand from the synopsis and the talk page, this is just the original Dead Water, a creature from another world / planet that turns people into other Dead Waters.

Mythical and historical characters from Earth-Two, Earth-One and New Earth should be designated as (New Earth).--FabioEscorpiao (talk) 20:18, October 17, 2017 (UTC)

But did Bellerophon ever appear on New Earth (or get a mention, that's good enough)? I can't find where. And if he didn't, then we're going to have to live with separate Earth-Two and Earth-One Bellerophons. -- Shadzane 💀 (talk) 20:28, October 17, 2017 (UTC)
Even though he has not appeared on New Earth, the rule applies to all historical and mythical characters from Earth-Two, Earth-One and New Earth (sometimes also from Earth-S). Besides that, we never know of all the appearances of a character, since many issues pages were not filled.--FabioEscorpiao (talk) 23:28, October 17, 2017 (UTC)
There has been at least one mention. Read the dialogue in this image: Ladon 0001.

Selina Kyle (Batman of Shanghai) to Catwoman (Batman of Shanghai)

Not sure if the "Bruce_Wayne_(Batman_of_Shanghai)," should be included in this mod, but atleast this page should be modified from "Selina_Kyle_(Batman_of_Shanghai)," to "Catwoman_(Batman_of_Shanghai)," and names removed accordingly if identities are in fact never confirmed. If I get the opportunity to watch and confirm this, I will say I verify. Until before then, if anyone else can attest to the state of identities for Catwoman and Batman in this short, it'll be much obliged. -- FanonVSCanon 8:48 JST 5th of November, 2017

Reflections to Reflection

Proper name is Reflection. Source: the image currently on (the improperly titled) Reflections. —Scott (message me) 21:51, November 9, 2017 (UTC)

Are we sure the image is correct? Wikipedia says the book is called Reflections, and so do we on the page for Wonder Woman (Volume 2) #197. And since the book is a collection of essays & articles, Reflections is a more likely title than Reflection. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:44, November 9, 2017 (UTC)
Actually, you're right. Although the covers for Wonder Woman #192 and Wonder Woman #196 depict the title as Reflection, the interior art shows the proper title as Reflections. I retract my request for a move. —Scott (message me) 23:08, November 9, 2017 (UTC)

Keith Everet (New Earth) to Keith Everet (Earth-Two)

Lengthy rationale given on the character's Talk Page. Shorter version: This guy's Golden Age / Earth-Two adventures were published under the title "Gay Ghost," with only one story (in Secret Origins) using the title "Grim Ghost". That story is a post-COIE / New Earth Story. So if he's the K.E. of N.E., then he should be called Grim Ghost. To call him the Gay Ghost, which is way more true to his publishing history, then he ought to be the K.E. of E-Two. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 21:23, November 12, 2017 (UTC)

Even so, we will still need a Keith Everet (New Earth) page. I don't think you want a Move, I think you want a Split... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 21:43, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
I'm not a huge fan of this. It seems that we're splitting for a one appearance alias change. Kyletheobald (talk) 22:32, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
I do want a Split, but it seems like overkill, so a Move seems like a less drastic solution. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 23:26, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
I see a Split as less drastic than a Move -- a Move needs admin participation, and a Split doesn't. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 01:35, November 13, 2017 (UTC)
A Move requires me to make my case and get some buy-in before changing anything; a Split just abruptly shows up, leaving Admins to react to it, after the fact. To me, that first approach seems less drastic. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 05:41, November 13, 2017 (UTC)

All-Star Batman #1 gives his name as Drury Walker. He's been re-imagined a little, but it's easier to assume they're the same guy. --- Haroldrocks talk 18:05, October 15, 2017 (UTC)

Tom Baker (Earth-One) to Dik-Rey (Earth-One)

Tom Baker's real name was Dik-Rey, and he was from Kandor. He pretended to be an Earthling named Tom Baker when he was on an extended trip to Earth, because Kandor was still a secret at the time. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:32, October 25, 2017 (UTC)

Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator (Earth-One) to Cleopatra (New Earth)

Change Earth-One to New Earth because she was mentioned in 52 #16.
Change "Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator" to "Cleopatra" because, for real people only, we are moving to using the Wikipedia page name as our page name (because Wikipedia has already been thru all the arguments about which version of the name to use). Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:41, October 26, 2017 (UTC)

Sandy Keene (Earth-Two) to Sandy Kean (Earth-Two)

Proper spelling as seen in his first appearance. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 10:36, June 19, 2017 (UTC)

In More Fun Comics Vol 1 82 it's spelled "Keene". So this may be one of those "Sanders" ==> "Saunders" or "Thomson" ==> "Thompson" mutations. Oh I hate those. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 21:31, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
It appears so. I've read several of his early stories and they all say "Kean". We should include a note on the page. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:37, July 18, 2017 (UTC)

Sherwood (Earth-One) to Sherwood Van Roy (Earth-One)

I don't know where it first appeared, but the GCD has "Van Roy" as Sherwood's last name in many of their indexes (from issue 10 to 58), and I see no reason to doubt them... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:57, September 1, 2017 (UTC)

Jonathan Dodd (Earth-S) to John Dodd (Earth-S)

In his origin story, he calls himself "John". He's not called "Jonathan" in dialog or caption. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 11:49, September 10, 2017 (UTC)

Space Cabby (New Earth) to Space Cabbie (New Earth)

That's how DC Comics, plus everybody else on the internet, spells it. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 11:22, October 5, 2017 (UTC)

Also, the disambig oage and other versions spelled "Cabbie" should be moved. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 19:32, October 9, 2017 (UTC)

Jacob (Prime Earth) to Brother Jacob (Prime Earth)

I hate first name only pages. --- Haroldrocks talk 02:08, October 15, 2017 (UTC)

That is your right, but where does Brother Jacob come from? Why is it better? -- Shadzane 💀 (talk) 05:09, October 16, 2017 (UTC)
Going off of the page. I know nothing about the character and could easily be mistaken, but when a character with a unique alias instead has a mononymous page name, we tend to prefer the former over the latter. Again, that's only usually the case. If you know more about the character and want to make a case why it should be just "Jacob", I'm not above reason. --- Haroldrocks talk 14:02, October 16, 2017 (UTC)
Well, I read the only issue in which he appeared. He is called "Brother Jacob" only within his Amish community (the other men are called that way too), not that he actually identifies himself with that alias outside of it. As for knowing which would be the best naming, I'd rather stay out of this discussion.--FabioEscorpiao (talk) 17:12, October 16, 2017 (UTC)

President of the United States (Injustice) to President Boon (Injustice)

His last name was revealed in Injustice 2 #14. I'm not a fan of one-name only pages, so I really don't want to name it "Boon (Injustice)". --- Haroldrocks talk 14:35, November 15, 2017 (UTC)

Danton Craig (Earth-One) to Dandy Craig (Earth-One)

The name Danton appears nowhere in Craig's only appearance. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 01:37, November 21, 2017 (UTC)

Whoever named the page must have assumed Dandy (as a first name) is short for Danton. My five minutes of Internet research shows it is usually derived from Andrew -- when it is a given name. But realistically, it's much more likely to be a nickname that has nothing to do with ones given name. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 06:38, November 27, 2017 (UTC)

I cannot find where J. Wilbur Wolfingham appeared (or was mentioned) post-Crisis/pre-Flashpoint. (His Who's Who entry did appear post-Crisis, but so did many other pre-Crisis entries, because they were already written pre-Crisis.)
A similar character named E. Wilbur Wolfingham did appear post-Crisis, but we already acknowledge that he was similar but not the same.
NOTE: After the name change, I will split the page into Earth-Two and Earth-One. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:33, January 11, 2018 (UTC)

Bartholomew Allen (Titans Tomorrow) to Bartholomew Allen II Clone (Titans Tomorrow)

As I mentioned on the talk page, the current name doesn't reflect that he's a clone of Bart, it kinda just sounds like future Barry. The new name would specify that he's specially a clone of the second person named Bartholomew Allen. (I don't like the idea of naming him Bartholomew Allen III because that implies that he's the third person born as Bartholomew Allen as opposed to a clone of the second.) --- Haroldrocks talk 20:14, January 19, 2018 (UTC)

Justice League Task Force to Justice League Task Force (New Earth)

Patrick O'Brian (Injustice) to Patrick O'Brien (Injustice)

The past issues of Injustice 2 (Injustice 2 #17, Injustice 2 #18) call him O'Brien with an "e". I don't have a source for the former, though I'm pretty sure it was conjecture with all the times it's been with an "a". --- Haroldrocks talk 02:05, January 20, 2018 (UTC)

Reach II (Prime Earth) to Reach (Prime Earth)

"Reach (Prime Earth)" currently refers to "The Reach" organization and it's redirected to Reach (New Earth). My plan is to split the two The Reaches, with the Prime Earth page being The Reach (Prime Earth). Then, the character known only as Reach can comfortably be just "Reach". --- Haroldrocks talk 21:47, February 27, 2018 (UTC)

I think these two got tangled up somewhere.

The team of powerhouses assembled to fight Damage -- first appearing in Damage (Volume 2) #1 -- is only ever referred to as "Task Force XL."

"Task Force XI" is the team of psychics Waller assembled -- alluded to in Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #6 and now appearing for the first time in Justice League: No Justice #1. -- SadCryingClown (talk) 18:14, May 9, 2018 (UTC)

Since there is a prehistoric character that is also called Aurakles, it would probably be best to make the Aurakles page a disambig to distinguish between these two completely unrelated things with the same name. Zandroid3 (talk) 19:14, May 15, 2018 (UTC)

At the moment. this database is of the opinion that Batman and Harley Quinn is not part of the DCAU, although that is being debated (slowly) on the movie's talk page. That debate should probably conclude one way or another before any moves are made. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:44, July 30, 2018 (UTC)
Great, so why was this moved? Also, any move back would also affect the tie-in comics, but not the one appearance in JL Adventures. Which is just as little canon as this movie, but at least that's presented as related. --Tupka217 12:47, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Frank Chandler (Earth 2) to Charles Chandler (Earth 2)

Earth 2 Chas was introduced before Prime Earth Chas. Earth 2 Chas is only ever referred to as "Chas", however Prime Earth Chas, who is supposed to be a perfect doppelganger of his Earth 2 counterpart, is named Charles. I think that retoactively makes Earth 2 Chas' real name Charles, but, if that's too much of a leap, I'll accept Chas Chandler (Earth 2) instead. He just shouldn't be Frank. --- Haroldrocks talk 19:08, August 26, 2017 (UTC)

Where did we get the name Frank from? Just curious... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 01:27, August 27, 2017 (UTC)
Frank has traditionally been his name from the original Vertigo Hellblazer run from what I understand. It wasn't too much of a leap to think it carried over in the New 52 until The Hellblazer Rebirth threw us for a loop. --- Haroldrocks talk 02:06, August 27, 2017 (UTC)

Otto Muller (Earth-One) to Otto Müller (Earth-One)

In the comics, his last name is written consistently as "Müller", not "Muller". If, for some technical reason, we can't have a ü in a pagename, then the pagename should be changed to Otto Mueller (Earth-One), because when you can't use a ü, you are supposed to replace it with ue (not u) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 01:19, November 29, 2017 (UTC)

Johnny Cloud II (New Earth) to John Cloud II (New Earth)

Technically, there is no Johnny Cloud #1. His grandfather, who he's presumably named after, was named Flying Cloud, Johnny was a nickname. However, there's another guy, a relative of Johnny II, named John Cloud who was introduced like 10 years before him. So now we have a Wally West Prime Earth situation where two cousins are named after the same grandfather. With a move, we'd have Flying "Johnny" Cloud, John Cloud, and this guy - John "Johnny" Cloud, which, IMO, is good enough. --- Haroldrocks talk 20:57, September 26, 2017 (UTC)

I'll bump this when the issue comes out. --- Haroldrocks talk 03:24, September 30, 2017 (UTC)

Savitar (Arrowverse) to Savitar (Arrowverse: 2024)

He does not come from 2024, but from either 2020 or 2021, so the page should not be moved. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ninja72 (talk • contribs).


Or at least, not to that. --Tupka217 17:42, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
There are so many possible futures / alternate timelines between The Flash and Legends, I'm not too concerned with moving Savitar. I think the idea behind naming it 2024 is because that's the year in the future Barry goes to look for help. So, even though Savitar was created in 2020 or 2021, he's from a timeline that Barry visited in 2024 and is being used as a catch-all term for characters from that timeline, not the year specifically.
While I'm interested in making pages for that alternate timeline / possible future characters from The Flash (2014 TV Series) Episode: The Once and Future Flash (because right now, they're just notes on the episode page which IMO is kinda lame), regardless, if we move Savitar, he should have the same designation as those characters. --- Haroldrocks talk 18:58, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Since 2024 is the only year from that alternate future that has been shown in the series, we need to have all characters from that future under the Arrow: 2024 designation. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 09:37, November 13, 2017 (UTC)

Counterpoint: He doesnt actually come from this timeline. He comes from a timeline, which was erased, when his future self from a few seconds later travelled to his time, turning him into a time remnant. (Ninja72 (talk) 16:04, February 3, 2018 (UTC))

Samohyeah (talk) 23:49, April 25, 2018 (UTC)

If you look at the archives, you will see at least one discussion about real people and their birth names. (Search for "Cleopatra") The gist is, for real people only, we don't care so much about the pagename reflecting their earliest legal name. For real people, we are totally OK with their pagename being the same as their page name on Wikipedia. So this move is not necessary. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:18, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

Hocus and Pocus to Hocus and Pocus (Earth-Two)

There is also Hocus and Pocus (Earth-508). Hocus and Pocus should be a disambiguation page. Hocus and Pocus (Earth-508) only appear once however. -- Something0Something (talk) 14:56, September 7, 2018 (UTC)

When we create pages for teams, we don't give them a Earth designation initially (unlike characters), because we are willing to accept some variations in teams. So if the Earth-508 Hocus and Pocus are roughly the same deal as the Earth-Two Hocus and Pocus (two amateur magicians (and a rabbit) who come to believe (erroneously) that they have real magic powers), one page should be fine. The move you want should only be done if the Earth-508 Hocus and Pocus are in some way different enough to warrant their own page. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:19, September 7, 2018 (UTC)
There are common ideas, but they aren't really the same. They can't use real magic and are aware of it. One day, Felix Faust (Earth-508) hides a magical item in Hocus' hat which gives it magical powers. That only brings them trouble but they never believe they suddenly developed magical powers. When Felix comes back to get back his magical item, Hocus and Pocus use it to defeat Felix. After that, they aren't really interested in fake magic any longer and want to become detectives instead. Is that different enough or are the ties t the original one still too strong ? -- Something0Something (talk) 17:37, September 7, 2018 (UTC)

Linda Danvers (Earth-One) to Kara Zor-El Clone (Earth-One)

Linda Danvers isn't a distinct identity, but one she temporarily took from the real Kara Zor-El. To avoid confusion, she should be moved to "Kara Zor-El Clone".KylieMfever (talk) 17:48, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

Disagree We shouldn't use "Clone" in the name as tho it's part of her name. I recommend Kara Zor-El II (New Earth) or somesuch (which already exists--if necessary, move it to III). —Justin (koavf)·T·C 05:07, December 1, 2018 (UTC)

Palmer (Smallville) to Jessica Palmer (Smallville)

When I created articles for several of her co-workers (identified by Bryan Q. Miller as Morrow, Ivo, Strange and Magnus. All said to be significant DC characters), I added conjectural first names for the men. However, with Palmer (and Strange), I refrained from adding a conjectural first name, as my first thought was that she was a gender-reversed Ray Palmer (and gender-reversed means I can't use the male name). However, since then I've remembered Jessica Palmer (Earth-15) (a blond woman with the last name "Palmer"). With the Palmer in the season 11 comic being a blond woman, it's entirely possible (if not probable) that she might be Jessica Palmer.KylieMfever (talk) 09:00, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

Jessica Palmer was not a gender-reversed Ray Palmer. Earth-15, not Earth-11. Honestly, this article can just be a footnote on the comic page. --Tupka217 09:30, October 24, 2018 (UTC)
I'm not saying that Jessica Palmer's a gender-reversed Ray Palmer. Just tried to give some backstory to why I didn't put a first name on the article, when I created it (don't think I even knew Jessica existed at that time). What I'm saying is that there is a strong possibility that this Palmer woman is an adaptation of Jessica Palmer.KylieMfever (talk) 09:34, October 24, 2018 (UTC)
No. There's conjecture and then there's just plain guesswork. I mean, why Jessica and not Avril? --Tupka217 09:52, October 24, 2018 (UTC)
Well, Jessica's blond, while Avril a brunette. So, some of it comes down to physical appearance (i.e. hair color).KylieMfever (talk) 10:20, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

Suicide Squad (Prime Earth) to Task Force X (Prime Earth)

Task Force X should really be titled with its formal name instead of the team's nickname Suicide Squad. Also the fact that different versions of Task Force X such as Task Force XL now exist provides further reason to move. O21014 (talk) 16:01, November 7, 2018 (UTC)

I'm going to say no on this one. In previous continuities, there is a difference between the two. I'm definitely not going to move such a high traffic page if there's no source given. --TupBot217 (talk) 13:45, February 9, 2019 (UTC)

Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) to Oliver Jonas Queen (New Earth)

Standard conventions. Also, we are inconsistent about middle names. Why is this? —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:19, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

Most pages don't use the middle name in the page title. I'm not sure why any of them do unless they're commonly called by both names, John Henry for example. Also this page was moved for SEO purposes. I think a larger discussion would be needed before moving this. Kyletheobald (talk) 18:27, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
What are those SEO purposes and are there any metrics to validate them? —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:29, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Certain, high-profile pages were moved to make them show up higher in Google results and lead more traffic to those pages and the site. Tupka would be the one to ask for a fuller explanation. Kyletheobald (talk) 18:38, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Tukpka217, is there any evidence that this is useful? —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:43, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Because it has both the name and the alias in the title, we'd cast a wider net in terms of search terms. It's be a shame if people were to look for Superman or Clark Kent and our page on him be buried because it's stuck at Kal-El. This was thought of before Prime Earth, and whether to swap pages is a debate we've been putting off all the time. Even if we switch, Oliver Jonas is a fuck no. --Tupka217 18:52, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
You removed my questions: Are there are any data showing any benefit to these rule-breakings? Also, why is "Oliver Jonas" a "no" but John Henry Irons and Jon Michael Carter are not? This is not an obvious question to me. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 22:11, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
John Henry Irons is allowed because "John Henry" is functionally his first name. He introduces himself as John Henry, and people call him John Henry when they first meet him before eventually shortening it to John.
And do you mean Michael Jon Carter? That's a little more obscure and it could probably be shortened to Michael Carter with no problem, but I think it is because whenever he gives his real name (which isn't that often) he always says "Michael Jon Carter". Of course, no one ever calls him "Michael Jon" or "Michael" or even "Jon", everyone calls him "Booster". Shadzane 💀 (talk) 23:49, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
I do mean that, thanks. Goofy error. But yes, that's a great example--I've never seen anyone reference him as "Michael Jon", even his sister. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 01:41, November 13, 2018 (UTC)
We also use middle names in page titles sometimes for disambiguation purposes. However, I don't think that applies here. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 20:10, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
I want to get rid of the SEO titling system very badly because New Earth has been retired for years so all we're doing is boosting outdated pages. But if we finally get rid of it, Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) will have to be moved to Oliver Queen (New Earth) because every Green Arrow page uses the Oliver Queen title even when his middle name was revealed and we only use middle names in titles when they are an important part of their identity. SeanWheeler (talk) 03:06, December 26, 2018 (UTC)
I'm hoping that eventually my suggestion to move the SEO stuff to Prime Earth (located here) gets agreed on but for now it should be Green Arrow (Oliver Queen), and even then it should be Oliver Queen (New Earth).Schroeswald (talk) 02:22, January 6, 2019 (UTC)

Ultramarine Corps to Ultramarine Corps (New Earth)

Not sure why this needs to be posted since it seems uncontroversial but it's lacking a universe designation. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 18:19, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

Is there a need to disambiguate? Low priority. Blank to () require a bit more attention than regular moves to prevent Authority-style muckups. --Tupka217 18:52, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
Not sure what this means but I thought that the standard here was to have a paranthetical that says "[Name] (Universe)". So that is not the case? —Justin (koavf)·T·C 22:11, November 12, 2018 (UTC)
That's the standard for individuals, but not for groups. (I don't know why, it goes back to before I started here). Shadzane 💀 (talk) 23:38, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

I'm not sure if that would be good for - wait for it - SEO. Disambigs for two things, especially if it's a character and the title of said character, just creates a short page with nothing for the spiders to pick up.--Tupka217 15:19, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

Characters by religion (pluralize)

Justin (koavf)·T·C 05:54, November 22, 2018 (UTC)
They're not singular, they're adjectives. I think that was the plan, if we standardize it, I think we should move the plural nouns to adjectives as well. --Tupka217 14:56, November 22, 2018 (UTC)
Why would we do that? E.g. Category:Characters_by_Nationality is in the form Category:Afghans, not Category:Afghan. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 20:52, November 23, 2018 (UTC)
Fine by me. --Tupka217 14:09, December 5, 2018 (UTC)

I'm not sure I'm on board - primarily for the following reason:
The move bot can't move categories. Categories can't be renamed. You have to change the manually added category on the character page to make the change. So, the challenge is then to find a way to use Tupka's AWB bot to run a replace on them instead, delete the old category, and make a new one. Adding categories to the Move category may or may not (I'm currently diagnosing the issue I'm encountering) cause the python code for the Move script to break.

That said, I'm going to remove these tags, and add this conversation to their talk pages in the mean time. - Hatebunny (talk) 01:25, January 2, 2019 (UTC)

I'm open to discussion on this but there are lots of clone characters with page names formatted this way or similarly. Kyletheobald (talk) 08:18, December 1, 2018 (UTC)
Disagree: As Kyle says, it has been tradition/policy to name clones with "Clone" at the end of their name instead of "II". If we want to change that, we'll need a major discussion to change it for all pages, not just this page. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 16:08, December 3, 2018 (UTC)
How many "[x] Clone" pages do we have? It can't be that many. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 08:38, December 5, 2018 (UTC)
Looking at Category:Clones:
  • 144 pages
    • 23 using "Clone";
    • 3 using "(clone)";
    • 9 using a Roman numeral; and
    • 106 using either just a name or just an alias.
- Byfield (talk) 13:08, December 5, 2018 (UTC)
Those three () should probably be moved, then. The numerals are probably a bit confusing because that's also used for multiple unrelated - cf. Olivia Reynolds. And it might unconfuse Paul Kirk. --Tupka217 14:09, December 5, 2018 (UTC)
I disagree: "[name] (clone)" is a much better title. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 03:10, December 7, 2018 (UTC)

Grammatical error in title as the s's should be capitals, also I forgot to list the reality.O21014 (talk) 18:54, December 20, 2018 (UTC)

On the issue of the reality. The naration box above the story title states "Welcome to Earth-X..." as does the background material presented in the DC Nation page. It looks like we have a third "Earth-X" to deal with and all of the character pages created for Freedom Fighters (Volume 3) #1 need to be moved.
- Byfield (talk) 03:10, December 21, 2018 (UTC)
In the DC Nation Venditti says its a continuation of the Multiversity: Mastermen story which is based on Earth 10. Also in The multiversity guidebook Earth X is listed as an alias of Earth 10 so I think its based in the New 52 multiverse.

Black Manta (DC Extended Universe) to David Kane (DC Extended Universe)

I'm pretty sure it was reported somewhere that Black Manta would have the real name David Kane. Whether it's a rumor or we missed something, I think we should check and verify. He's David Hyde in the comics, so where did the Kane name come from? If we can find a verified source that he's David Kane, then the article should be moved and not have him treated as unnamed. But if we looked everywhere in the movie and verified sources and can't find the name, then we don't move him. SeanWheeler (talk) 04:10, December 22, 2018 (UTC)
