I was wondering, would it be allowed to add a page for Kal-El's incarnation from the one-off "Bump in the Night" story in DC House of Horror #1? It's not much, but it's a notice departure from the norm.
I'm not sure if it's allowed to add about these one-offs from the specials is why I ask.
I'm working on Reiser' history and I've almost finished it up to his involvement with the Titans. I'm not sure how to write the summary of the events that take place in the second story of Convergence: Superman Vol 1 2.
Anyway, I was wondering whether or not it would be frowned upon if I was to just copy paste the summary in the Convergence issue. From what I can see, it is accurate (I compared it directly to the issue).
I was going to ask Hatebunny (he was the one that wrote the synopsis), but he hasn't been active for a while.
Copy and pasting is usually tricky subject matter, so I usually suggest against it.
I'm not sure how long the history section you're writing is, but it doesn't really need a single comic synopsis in it anyway. That whole story in Convergence: Superman can be boiled down to two sentences at most for a history section:
"One of Reiser's early acts of heroism was attempting to stop a robbery but, due to his monstrous form, he was incorrectly assumed to be a villain by his superhero roommate the Alpha Centurion, who he had yet to tell his secret." Or something.
It doesn't need the play by play of bullets flying, him running away, blah blah blah.
Hey there, I was having a chat with Tupka in the hopes of utilizing the "titans" URL for a wiki covering the upcoming TV series Titans. He didn't take issue with it, but suggested I consult the other admins. Would you have a problem with this?
Hey, I appreciate you following up, I should've said something in the edit summary,
It's not that your edit was wrong or factually incorrect in any way, it's more about conciseness and housekeeping. Items like unnamed gear and weapons tend not to get mentioned in the equipment and weapons section. Usually, that spot goes to stuff like Riddler's Staff or Penguin's Umbrella or, in a sense, big stuff. (This isn't always the case, sometimes unnamed items can get a mention if they're, say, vital to the character but not important enough for a page. Gray area stuff, you'll-know-it-when-you-see-it stuff, y'know?)
Also, the trivia about her interaction with Kate Kane seemed negligible. From what I've read, and I've been following the series, their interactions haven't really accumulated to anything "trivia worthy", again that section's usually reserved for slightly bigger things in terms of who, what, where, why the character is so it doesn't get bloated with tiny little details.
So, just to restate, there wasn't anything wrong or bad about your edit, it was just a little too small to deserve mentions like that. Does that make sense?
Are you still reading Forager? I just read the last one and have no idea what's going on anymore. Besides that, I don't know if we're supposed to recognize any of those characters or not. I'm not as up on my Kirby stuff as I thought.
I am, I've just gone into some serious hibernation in anticipation of Justice League (which hopefully I can finally see today). I haven't gotten the chance to read the latest issue yet but, honestly, I'm not the best at Kirby either. We'll see.
I respect that. I guess the whole point of the series is that Forager is hopping in between realities that, I guess, exist but kinda don't exist?
I made all those Prime Earth pages for characters awhile ago, thinking it was Prime Earth this whole time, but they could probably all be scrapped and funneled into their old (probably New Earth) versions. If that's the case, though, then we should probably funnel Forager into his New Earth version as well and just say this series is a continuation of that.
I'd like to wait until this ends and we see the Young Animal crossover before we do anything drastic. He could be hopping between realities or this could be one of those things where events happened the same on both Earth-One and Prime Earth. It's just interesting to me that guys like the Hog, Dr. Spider, Dr. Skuba, and Chagra seem to pick up right after their 70's stories end in cliffhangers.
Agreed, waiting is fine. That's the assumption I originally made, too - that the events just so happened to be the same between the two continuities. The same thing is happening in Doom Patrol, where Morrison's entire run seems to still be totally canon. I'm fine with putting a pin in this and coming back when we have a conclusion to work with.
Not yet, but I will right now. I have the first two issues of Imaginary Fiends in my queue to read too, there's been a bit of a backup. I'm not predicting a perfectly smooth way to solve everything with Bug, but we'll see.
I read it, it doesn't really answer anything, but I definitely think the whole series was meant to just continue characters Kirby started, like you mentioned. I'm still siding with what I said earlier about going back and funneling all the characters into their respective original-Kirby character pages - Bug, and everybody else, is New Earth, not Prime Earth.
I'll try to get it read soon. The only reason I hesitate moving to New Earth is that the rest of the Young Animal books pretty clearly don't take place on New Earth. Even the backup feature seems to be set on Prime Earth. I'm wondering if we're reading to much into something just meant to showcase Kirby's creations.
Hey, hey! I just wanted to drop a line with a major thumbs up attached! You've been on an epic roll, and you've really been inspiring me lately to improve my own contributions to the wiki. Well done, friend. :)
