Separate This Page?

Should this page be separated into two versions? I know the version from House of Mystery/House of Secrets is supposed to be the Biblical version as well, but I don't think that guy and the version with/of Vandal Savage can possibly be the same. Two pages or is there another solution? Kyletheobald 14:40, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah, there's the version from I, Vampire too, although he won't be a problem if we make a move. Kyletheobald 14:42, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

As I recall, the version of Cain from House of Mystery is a creation of the Dreaming, not the actual historicl Cain. Tony ingram 15:01, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

This Cain is not Vandal Savage. Tony ingram 15:07, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

For all intents and purposes this Cain page is used to describe the Cain from House of Secrets as well as the biblical one. I don't know who's original decision it was to include both interpretations on the same page but both characters claim to be the "historical" original, which Vandal Savage does too. Vandal Savage was redirected to this page when he claims he was/is Cain.
The Cain from I, Vampire is fundamentally different and I don't recall him ever saying he was the original sinner just that he was ancient evil. Plus he's blond so that just won't do and he'll be handled when we make the move. As for splitting the two "Cains" up and then considering Vandal's version too; how would you guys propose we split and name the pages if we were to do so?

As far as I'm concerned, Vandal is Vandal; his claim to be Cain is worth mentioning on his page and here as a footnote, but when people think of DC's Cain, they're usually thinking of the guy from House of Mystery. I know nothing about this new Cain, because I'm not buying any current DC titles since the reboot, but if he has a legitimate claim to the name (or seems to have) I'd suggest making him 'Cain (New Earth)) and renaming this page 'Cain (The Dreaming)'.
