Link broken

Marvel link is broken.

In that above code, change http://www.marvel.com/universe/{{{marvel}}} to http://www.marvel.com/universe/{{{Marvel}}}. It currently links to the wrong place because the parameter is case sensitive. Digifiend (talk) 23:25, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

I hope it works now. Thanks for reporting! —Mrkermit (talk) 23:39, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

Link broken again

Marvel.com no longer has a universe. It's all closed for editing. The character pages are still present at marvel.com/characters/ but they're all marked with disclaimers. Psicraft (talk) 03:11, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

Don't change anything yet? Marvel.com still has a lot of redirects in place, apparently. Their new system doesn't seem to be easily convertible from their old system from the outside. It uses lowercase and hyphens only.
Non-character pages are still missing, but that's a problem for a different template. Psicraft (talk) 03:39, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

"Killed by" link problems

The killed by ____ using "Current Alias" is problematic, as many articles put a link around the alias, or add references to it. This causes the template to fail to find the "killed by" category.

It also poses problems for characters that recently had an alias change. Psicraft (talk) 08:44, May 19, 2018 (UTC)

I agree, dead characters should be handled differently than putting it in the "Current Alias" section. — Emitewiki2 (talk) 03:14, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
