To provide context, Marvel's official press release about the series unambiguously states:
Emmy Award-winning writer and illustrator Genndy Tartakovsky, known for his beloved animated series "Dexter's Laboratory," "Samurai Jack" and "Star Wars: Clone Wars," revives the fan-favorite tiara and chest hair-riffic open yellow shirt in a new out-of-continuity four-issue run taking a super-satirical look at 1970s Marvel comics.
Yet they've inexplicably both assigned it the appropriate alternate universe designation and not.
As someone who had submitted an Appendix profile for this reality, I can clarify what had happened: it was originally assigned a universal designation while a profile was undergoing editing, but later I was told that the CAGE! Vol 1 series was ruled to be part of Earth-616 by Marvel. I was just surprised as the Appendix editor who informed me of that, but the decision apparenly came from Marvel and not just the Appendix team.
Retcons can happen both ways, I suppose. Plenty of the material is now being treated as being different from the universe it was originally announced.(Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas Vol 1 1 is the first one that comes to mind). Not to mention that the original link is long dead anyway.
From the Appendix, the source was a Marvel Fact File
Anyway, as for the CAGE! question, well, the Earth-36121 designation was given but then it appeared that while Marvel did advertise it as out-of-continuity, they apparently backtracked and ruled it as 616 in Marvel Fact Files (which is officially licensed & sometimes even overseen by Marvel & all), hence the update to remove the separate designation after we realized the separate designation was a mistake.
I'm still trying to figure some stuff, but it's the end, the solution seems to be consider each time the Suns of Cinnibus are summoned, the principality should be noted as invoked (as it is stated the principality -not the dimension- is invoked for the power in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z #7 (the contrary I had started to do, but I assume it's possible that I will have to correct stuff from the beginning again as I complete pages, starting with Cinnibus), though the actual places exist (Marvel Tarot #1+Journals of Ian McNee on the Appendix, related to the Ian McNee handbook in the two handbooks I've mentioned).
It's kind of overkill, and in some cases unclear which or which is invoked (though, as said previously, it seems the principality is always the target of the invocation).
So for an invocation with the spell seen, the page would display:
I've more trouble for cases such as the invocations of the Sons of Cinnibus, as I don't know if they are the seven sons of Cinnibus (Earth-616) with capital letters, or simply the Seven Sons of Cinnibus (whether the dimension or the entity) as a title (+ it's not a spell). In such case, I'd stick until further notice with
Possibly with an hidden note for both Cinnibus to explain the uncertainty of which (or both) Cinnibus is invoked.
While creating/completing pages, I also try take the time to correct or complete the comics pages involved, to avoid the relative problem of what happens when Asgard (Realm) and Asgard (City) (or Olympus (Realm) and Olympus (City)), where some pages had been "corrected" simply by replacing Asgard by appearances and/or mentions of the two places (I admit there was countless pages involved, but still, there are more than a few errors IIRC).
If you haven't the time to check, feel free to pass on those, the "old" pages and categories (as well as the movetags) are kind of "step-markers" in the correction process (I see better what has really been read/completed...). I'll also try to take the time to deal with renaming the pics (though there aren't much for those pages).
I think I'll pass. The majority of the issues where the spell is used or invoked were published before I was born or very young. So, I would only be able to check a few issues. Like you said, it gets confusing, and I'm not very familiar with Doctor Strange's spells.
I don't if you've noticed, but the site has been acting weirdly and one of the templates that is affected is Marvel Database:Automatic Image Template. Its fixable by just editing the page, however while I was looking through the images that use the template, it seems to have issues categorizing everything correctly. I hate to be a pain, but could I get your assistance in removing this template and switching it over to the manual style
Whenever you move pages for comic book issues and volumes, please remember to actually move the original volume page to the new address instead of creating a new page for it, as Fandom's Terms of Service requires that an article's edit history be retained. Thanks.
Hey, I see you've been adding image artist information which is great, however please ensure you're adding the correct person to the correct field. For your work with Marvel Zombies you don't use cover Artist for the internal images and you listed the penciler and letterer in the wrong fields.
What exactly is the qualification for resolving disputes while moving pages? Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-138) and Illyana Rasputina (Earth-18133) both had ongoing discussions on the talk pages less a week old when they were moved. I don't mind being overruled by a majority of voices at all, but in both cases only one other person ever got to voice their opinion.
Which is why I'm asking you to at least check if there is an ongoing discussion on the talk page. Would it be okay if I put move tags on those two pages back? If people decided to leave them as they are now, that's fine, but at least the decision will be motivated.
This is something I have also wondered, since some of the pages I add a move tag on seem to be moved without anyone else joining in the discussion and I don't know if the page is just being moved blindly or if others have talked amongst themselves about it then decided, same for pages that are tagged to be moved but ultimately do not get moved.
I can't give you an exact amount. If you search the Internet, the prices tend to vary. If you go on eBay, the prices vary from $30 all the way to $125. It is eBay, though, so I wouldn't be too sure on the authenticity of the products.
Hey, You added all the information with sources to Norman Dribble (Earth-33⅓) but he hasn't any appearances listed, since I don't have access to many of these old reprints, would it be possible for you to go back and add his appearances to the prevalent comics?
Thanks, this brings up a second question, how much of the Earth-33⅓ strips do you have access to, since there are sparse entries for other series beyond the Secret Wars II, but my brief searches have pulled up the potential for a lot of Marvel UK stuff to contain the panels.
