Who to Keep?

I started pruning the sub-categories. I feel that Ace of Space doesn't need one, for example. Hawkman does. What do we feel are the minimum requirements for this, and does someone want to help cull the unworthy and flesh out the worthy? In my opinion, a character whose origin has been revised fewer than three times doesn't need a subcat. "Flash Origins" can act as a catch-all, but "Barry Allen Origins" and "Wally West Origins" should exist also. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 17:45, April 30, 2018 (UTC)

I think anyone whose origin story has been told multiple times, with varying details is a go for this category. Which is to say, Batman remembering the currently-in-continuity death of his parents in an issue about something else is not an origin issue, it's just a reference to the origin. Whereas a story in Secret Origins, or (for example), that one Gotham Knights issue where they expand on the Killing Joke's pre-red hood origin for the Joker might count as well. First appearances for random characters with only a handful of appearances, etc. are probably not worth the effort.
Regarding sub-categories for Wally West and Barry Allen - that makes sense, and is possible with the variable option in the {{Origin}} template. - Hatebunny (talk) 18:11, April 30, 2018 (UTC)
characters only one origin and sometimes no other appearances don't need a cat.--Tupka217 18:15, April 30, 2018 (UTC)
