  • Hi! Did you just added all the category you added to this page, because they were on the 616 version, instead of sticking to what is said in the game ? Thanks for replying.

    • That's correct. I had made the assumption, given the little information shown about this version of Fin Fang Foom, that the information implied by those categories (i.e., that he can breathe fire, is a Malkuan, etc.) held true for this version as well. Similar assumptions appear to be made on other articles of characters that only make brief cameos in other universes, so I figured it was okay here. If this is not the case, I will refrain from including all but the most self-evident categories (in this case, categories such as "Dragons") in future cases like this.

      In fact, it's quite the opposite: Editors copy-paste everything without relevancy, often just for the badges, and in the end, it's a mess.

      There are a few unformal rules, as we haven't yet edited a more "official" set of rule:

      • Everything must be referenced (Actually that's official)
      • Everything has to be verified.
      • There are more obscure "rules" about who could be put like this: Let's assume Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are really not mutants (cf. Original Sin). An alternate version of them published before will still be mutants, except if they re-appear and it is stated otherwise. It's kind of a tricky situation.

      Concerning the powers and the physical caracteristics, I consider we have not to state anything unproved. For example, many users put in the infobox the hair and eyes colors of versions of Spider-Man and Green Goblin, even when they never remove their masks. Same goes for the copy-pasting of height and weight, relatives who doesn't even appears or mentioned in the issues where those versions appears. We don't have to add them because it is not relevant, useful or even true. The principle of the Multiverse make that everything can be the same or different, until proved (It's like the Schrödinger cat, now that I think about it). Indicating something that can't be proved, and that is possibly false, is consequently useless and irrelevant.

      (For the powers section, personnally, I do it this way: I add a sentence according to the case, and as I like to do things clearly, I also add the displayed powers when there is):

      • If powers are used and fit with those of the mainstream version (or another): "Seemingly those of ****"
      • If powers aren't used but seemingly/surely possessed: "Presumably" or "Possibly those" according to the cases
      • If there are no powers displayed and presumably none to display: We had nothing. There is nothing to add, and write "None, human" in the powers section instead pf writing the story explaining there is no powers here is just laziness.

      If you want to edit, better for you to know the character of the page.

      Also, concerning Fin Fang Foom, you could have see that the references were way earlier than the game.

      I think that's all. Ask me if you have any question! (Oh, and also, those rules apply to the level classification also, like Omega Level Mutants. I try to have a strict respect of this rule, in opposition to the things we can see on other parts of the internet)
