  • Hello, Shadzane.

    Given that:

    I came across the following reasoning:

    Maybe that later information should be moved to Rip Hunter (New Earth), instead of remaining in Ripley Hunter (Earth-One)?

    1. I'm trying to figure out what is the moment in Linear Men#History where I can write the time in which Rip Hunter (New Earth) became one of them (as per Legends of the DC Universe 80-Page Giant Vol 1 1#Synopsis for "Falling in Line") - after all, how can Rip Hunter join a time way after he founded that same team?! Either is another version of the character who founded the team, or the beginning of the history text of Linear Men is wrong.
    2. And, also, several article pages mention Rip Hunter (New Earth), when perhaps it should be Ripley Hunter (Earth-One), for example, Ripley Hunter (Earth-One)#History mentions "the mini-series The Kingdom", but, in The Kingdom Vol 1 2#Appearing in "Mighty Rivers" is a link to Rip Hunter (New Earth)?!?!?!

    Thanks, in advance.

    • Did you miss this paragraph of the history?

      "As the final effects of the Crisis took hold, Hunter discovered that he was now a man out of time without a home. No one remembered that he had existed. Even his old time traveling teammates had no memory of the Pre-Crisis world. Rip himself had been replaced with a new Post-Crisis doppelganger, also a master of time travel."

      The Earth-One Rip Hunter continued to exist after Crisis because of some cosmic fluke, probably related to time travel -- even though there was a New Earth Rip Hunter around to replace him!

    • No, sorry, I did not miss the history.

      But you miss the point that I made about the Note. Here are the full notes... the bit in bold is the one contradictory.

      This version of Rip Hunter, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions. Despite that, he still survived, because he was traveling through time when the original Multiverse collapsed.

      This full note seems obsolete (in regards to later storylines). And the bit in bold seem contradictory (if someone survives, then is not erased from existence).

      Like I said, I'm trying to figure out where in Linear Men#History can I mention that Rip Hunter joined Linear Men (as per Legends of the DC Universe 80-Page Giant Vol 1 1#Synopsis_for_"Falling_in_Line").

    • Yes, it is contradictory, because the first two sentences are from the template, and can't be rewritten or changed. So the third sentence is trying to explain that the first two sentences aren't really accurate.

      As to when Rip Hunter (New Earth) joined the Linear Men, and why he didn't meet Rip Hunter (Earth-One), and all of that, I do not know. I think you are going to have to read the actual comics, obviously our synopses aren't detailed enough to make everything clear. Also, as you mentioned in your first post, it is possible that we have some Rip Hunter appearances mislabeled.

      There's a lot of comics featuring Rip Hunter characters. :)

      In the meantime, I've already edited Linear Men article, and placed a sentence and its ref about Rip Hunter joining the team. The problem is that it causes a contradiction in the text, but I'm not doing anything more, as I lack the info, and also, the sentence I added has a ref. It is the first sentence that needs citation.

      I only contacted you, as you had contributed significantly to Ripley Hunter (Earth-One) in January 26, 2016.

      Someday, someone might untie the contradiction. That's my hope.

      Thanks, anyway. :)

  • You posted a dead Earth B/Earth-Thirty-Two timeline link in the talk page of Earth-Thirty-Two and I really want to see it.

  • I saw Ink was 2019 and tried googling and couldn't find anything from 2018 so I assumed. I'm a lil oblivious. Shouldn't DC Ink be 2018, too?

      Loading editor
    • Well, it was announced and formed in 2018, but did DC Ink actually publish anything in 2018? It looks like they didn't publish until 2019. So maybe 2019 is correct for Ink. idk...

  • 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.

    • Hey, If I got something wrong, feel free to correct it. I don't remember Time Masters much, so I may have made an error.

    • Believe it or not, Vandal tried to take the identity of Doiby Dickles.

  • 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)

  • It's not actually a bot, it's a bot account. I'm logged into it in an incognito window.

    I removed it because we may want to prevent confusion with Michael Carter.

  • 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.

      Loading editor
    • 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...

    • Are David Bowie and Mick Jagger out of the question?

        Loading editor
    • 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 ?

      Loading editor
    • 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.
