Thank you for uploading new content to the DC Database project!
We have lots of images in our database, 138,964 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.
Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
As a guide, look what other images in a character's gallery are called, and continue with the same name and number. If you upload a first image of a character, use "[Name] [Universe] 001". Do not use parentheses, or the full pagename. Ignore the Universe designation if it is a New Earth character.
Issue covers should be given at least the title of the series, the volume and the number. A name similar to the issue is preferred: "Title Vol 1 1". Textless covers should be called "Title Vol 1 1 Textless". Files that do not indicate the issue number will be deleted.
Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
Selecting the proper license is vital to properly maintaining our images. Please choose the license which best describes the image you are uploading. The most commonly used are 'Comic Single Panel' and 'Comic Cover', respectively.
Other fields that should be filled in: Issue, Subject1, Artist. Add Source if you've taken it from a different site. If you've taken it from a different site and don't know the issue, DO NOT UPLOAD IT.
Just a quick note as to what qualifies as a "[Character X] villain". It has to be a villain solely or largely associated with that character. Not someone bigger who just fought them once, and not someone they fought when they are supporting characters to someone else, or members of a team (unless the arc focuses on them). Solomon Grundy is no more a Black Canary villain than he is a... well, random hero villain.
Fair point, he was added to her nav box by someone else so I was just adding him since he was on the list but Lady Shiva and Wizard are 100% acceptable then since they both have major story arcs dealing with Canary even though it's in Justice League and Birds of Prey its character defining for her, same for Cheshire, Harpy (see her in the Anti-Justice League and New52 Canary series), Tigress and Cupid. The issue with this is that while not always the title character Black a Canary is often the co-star of Green Arrow books with the actual plots following her as much as him.
Cruel and unfair as it is, if "Green Arrow" is on the cover, that makes it a Green Arrow villain even though she is a costar and deserves equal billing.
A character like White Canary is clearly a Black Canary villain, even though she appeared in Birds of Prey. Cheshire and the Ravens are not. The Ravens are a sort of anti-Birds of Prey; Cheshire has fought many heroes but is still just a Titans villain.
Harpies are a race. The only reason a harpy was in the Anti-Justice League was because she didn't have any villains of her own.
I think Solomon Grundy was just added to the navbox to pad things up, honestly.
Cupid, Dark Arrow and Big Game both appeared in the Green Arrow/Black Canary series and were fought by Canary (Cupid was even a primary foe of Canary). Wizard was the main fire in a storyline that gave Canary her sonic cry which is an essential part of her character and really cements him as a classic Canary for and Lady Shiva is enexplicably linked with Canary, fought her exclusively in Birds of Prey and even took the name Jade Canary after her rival. I'm willing to concede on Cheshire since she was only in Birds of Prey and didn't have an impact on Canary proper but I'm not sure about the tigresses since they both fought Canary as a primary foe (in Starman and Canary's Brave and the Bold stories and a few Injustice Society appearances as BC's analog) and Artemis has several stories where she and Canary reference the fact that they are rivals and even mentions that her mother considered Tigress and Sportsmaster her enemies.
Fair enough but the Green Arrow/Black Canary foes still count even by your standards. I'll let Wizard and Tigress go since it was tenuous at best. Still can't agree with Shiva, Cupid and Big Game since its her series they were in and in some cases first appeared in.
But more than enough to hold her focus for a year or more worth of stories and a change to her Identity to Jade Canary as well as having a major impact on Black Canary as a character. The main difference is that Richard Dragon aside the other characters didn't have much of a lasting impact on her or vice-versa. Batman fought Shiva many times and definitely deserves to list her as a foe but in the same case so does Black Canary, Gail Simone put a lot of puropose into connecting these two characters and added backstory and major character reveals and although it didn't carry over into the New 52 it was still a major part of the character until the reboot recently.
