Should Time Warp Vol 2 1 be listed as Rip Hunter's Appearance of Death? Blaxpidey (talk) 23:38, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

I'm gonna say yes, but time travel confuses me, so I wouldn't be surprised if another admin were to say no. --- Haroldrocks talk 23:45, April 7, 2015 (UTC)
Prime Earth Rip, perhaps. --Tupka217 11:41, April 8, 2015 (UTC)
Rip hasn't even appeared during the New 52 except recently in Multiversity. I'm uncomfortable counting a one-off Vertigo story as Prime Earth right now. Kyletheobald (talk) 15:16, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Pre 52 History

How does Rip's history before the event 52 fit in? In the 1990 book Time Masters, Rip's grandfather and even his cousin, Daniel Hunter (New Earth) are featured. Rip himself even references those events in JSA Vol 1 68 which also takes place after the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths which cements that Time Masters' Ripley Hunter is the same as modern day New Earth's Rip.

This directly conflicts with Rip being Booster Gold's son and raised to protect the time stream. This was most likely just a retcon from Booster Gold Vol 2, but at the very least said retcon should be mentioned in this article. Frankly, I'm just super confused, haha!

Timey wimey stuff. Good question. --Tupka217 00:00, January 27, 2016 (UTC)
I thinks it's fairly clear that Rip was retconned by Infinite Crisis. I'm not sure how to represent that in the history -- I don't think there is a set procedure for dealing with New Earth characters who were retconned by IC (or Zero Hour, or both). Shadzane 💀 (talk) 02:57, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

Real Name

In DC's Legends of Tomorrow, his adoptive mother/guardian said that his name was Michael, so could it be his real name in the comics? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Arthurrio (talk • contribs).

Adaptations are irrelevant to the comics. Unless they explicitly adopt it.--Tupka217 08:42, June 23, 2016 (UTC)
