If you read Time Masters Vol 1, you'll see that Vandal Savage being Cheops is perfectly possible. It is very likely that Savage assumed his role after Khufu was killed by Hath-Seth. Also, maybe Khufu and Queops are different people in the DC Universe.
A whole bunch of G.Age comics that until quite recently were available online at CBP have vanished. Like 3/4 of all issues of Captain Marvel Adventures. Which is weird; why wouldn't it be all of them, or none of them? But it's most of them, AND there's a note there, asking their contributors to NOT upload those issues. U got any idea what's up with that? Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 11:18, April 17, 2019 (UTC)
We had a thread about it on Discussions a while back, but can't find it. Short version: DC.
A lot of Golden Age Captain Marvel stories were pulled down at the request of DC's IP lawyers who said it was no longer public domain. Presumably because with the success of the movie, they want to offer it at DC Universe.
So according to DC IP lawyers, some-but-not-all of the G.A.C.M. stories were never in the public domain? Dudn't sound right. Did they try to take down all of those stories, but partially fail? Or did their argument only apply to some of them but not all of them? Why, innuddawoids, are there still SOME G.A.C.M. stories still up?
DC asked Comic Book Plus to remove certain issues because those issues are not in the public domain (per DC). We don't know what DC's legal argument was (because Comic Book Plus is not sharing the letter DC sent them), but apparently Comic Book Plus found the argument convincing.
If I had to guess, I would guess that DC found paperwork showing that Fawcett did renew the copyright on those particular issues. If your next question is "Why did Fawcett renew some issues and not others, seemingly at random?" I cannot answer that, but I can totally believe that it happened, because Fawcett's comics division was shut down and I can buy that renewing the copyrights was a low priority.
Would famous artists and people like Neil Armstrong be qualified to make a profile on? I’ve already made one for Andy Warhol, but since you removed his appearance from the movie, I would like to know if there’s something wrong about it.
Sorry, I didn't mean to undo Andy Warhol, as the page already existed. I'll fix that.
For the rest, see the link I referred to (which you may already have done). And you may be right, Neil Armstrong and Leonid Brezhnev and a few others may qualify for pages under #3 (Major Historical Figure), but not all of them...
Personally, I'd say no to them because they are too recent (who knows if rock & roll will even be around in 100 years?), but since we didn't come up with a definition for Major Historical Figure yet, I won't object if you make redlinks for them. (Someone else may, but not me.)
What I'm gonna ask might date a bit, but on the issue Adventure Comics #218, you added this a few years ago:
This issue of Adventure Comics is considered by some comic indexers to be the first issue to regularly feature the Green Arrow of Earth-One. Other indexers place the dividing line between Earth-Two and Earth-One elsewhere. The DC Comics Database has selected thus issue.
Do you, by any chance, remember the source of the indexers using #218 as a reference ?
No. I just added that note because Adventure Comics #218 was already where we were making the split, so I figured it needed a note, but because I didn't know the exact reasons I left the note vague. The decision to use that issue as the first Earth-One issue was made in 2011, long before I was here.
Actually that someone saw the movie redlinked everywhere and decided not to let it be a redlink. But I shan't take that jibe personally, as I genuinely did not know how the situation was and the practices were different back then.
We should probably apply the same logic to the other movie - it's by Spirit Films, LLC, OddLot, Lionsgate and Sony. Pity, there were a lot of nice subjects for Actor Pages in it.
Oh wait, are you talking about the Real People page (and not about which real people get their own pages)? In that case, I think every real person should be listed on Real People, but I've never seen any discussion about it....
