Hey KalKent! I'm Marcus, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager assigned to this great wiki. I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff (not to take over). If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please contact me on my message wa. I've already contacted a couple admins yesterday and will be contacting a few more today. If you have any questions about my role, don't hesitate to contact me. There will be a blog explaining more about wiki managers in the near future as well.
We could just copy and paste plot synopsis from Wikipedia, but that would be plagiarizing. And it's not as easy summarizing the plot of a movie, as it is summarizing of a comic book or even a tv episode, since that's usually more draining of ones time.
People i know said that the new Marvel-Anime are either bonkers or just kiddy, but i think they are pretty awesome (with Future Avengers looking better then Disk Wars). Im not the greatest expert regarding Marvel, neither am i familiar with rules here, so could someone Update the Page of Earth TRN-642? Im sad to see not much of that Series, and i don't want to screw up
I've not seen anything of it either (apart from the intro and the fight scene of Hulk and Captain Marvel against Ares), since as far as I know there is no legal way for me to watch through said show (with or without subtitles), so I can't help you with that. I mainly created a page for the show and the reality, since I felt like people were glossing over the fact said show actually existed.
MCU wiki gives all of those characters separate pages named like "Sunil Bakshi (Framework)", which I don't think is right for this wiki either, as those aren't proper counterparts from an alternate universe. I was thinking maybe pushing them all to the Framework/Residents page, which would allow to both keep all Framework stuff in one place and also link to them from disambiguation pages. I also think this should only be done only for Framework recreations, while the main characters who were plugged in and actually lived those lives should not be included.
What do you think: should I bring more people in to this discussion, or am I allowed to proceed with the above? HBK123 (talk) 13:55, March 27, 2019 (UTC)
If they are different characters and have substainail details I would go with (Person (Framework) (Earth-199999) ) similar to how we treat Warp World or Heror Reborn. While it's a VR it could probably be treated as a pocket reality
Every single person has different history, but only a few play a prominent role in the plot. If you were to include cameo mentions and minor appearances, it would result in over 30 articles, which I don't think is productive, since very few people care to maintain TV articles anyway. MCU Wiki can afford it because of their more limited scope, but over here there are still redlinks for actual characters with 10+ appearances, and even main character pages stopped being updated years ago. I'm working on covering the most glaring omissions, but I still tend to just skip one-time appearances by non-comic characters, which Framework would have the majority of. Pushing them all on one page seems much more effective to me, and I don't know if any other virtual realities even have separate pages for them. HBK123 (talk) 14:23, March 27, 2019 (UTC)
Then in that case, I'm trying to switch over all these resident pages to be under one umbrella so they are easier to find I'd go with Character Index/Earth-199999 Framework Characters or some such, as long as they use the Character Index beginning
I was looking at Deadlands/Residents as an example. There's been a long discussion about it here, but the actual Framework article is still just a stub. Has there been any rules or consensus on how to title resident list pages? HBK123 (talk) 15:20, March 27, 2019 (UTC)
On the Deadlands it just hasn't been converted yet (Character Index/Deadlands or Character Index/Earth-13264), it's a big article. There are no rules or consensus, I'm trying to rein them into something easily findable.
I was hoping for a more elegant name that could be easily linked to from disambiguation pages. What about simply Character Index/Framework, then listing that as subsection of Earth-199999 on the Index main page? HBK123 (talk) 15:36, March 27, 2019 (UTC)
Is it okay to start adding Captain Marvel (film) spoilers yet? The movie has been out in most of the countries for almost 2 days now. Will I get banned for adding spoilers before proper U.S. release? HBK123 (talk) 12:08, March 7, 2019 (UTC)
You won't get banned for adding any, since this database is meant to be international. As long as it's gotten a wide release in whatever area, then it's considered release and open to be updated. If one wants to avoid spoilers until one has seen the movie, then one should stop visiting this site for a while. We used this also back when MCU movies came out 1 week before the US.
Please stop deleting my contributions and making changes that are not based in facts. In addition to being one of the most published comics historians around with various awards to my credits, I am the Director of the Wallace Wood Estate, co-author of the Eisner Award recognized Wood biography, Wally's World and am well recognized as the World's leading authority on Wallace Wood. All of my changes are based on many decades of research, 1st person experience, interviews (conducted by me and others), and my relationships with the related parties.
Sorry for chiming in, but I think I need to address an important issue, one that concerns two pieces of trivia that you added to the article of Daredevil #5. Since we are on the Internet, it's easy to impersonate people and hard to verify one's claimed identity. It goes against our best interests to present ourselves as a trustworthy source of information to let somebody claiming to be a certain person make unconventional changes and take their credibility at face value.
Additionally, it's in the nature of wikis to value the concept of a community over individual contributors. Because of this, for a casual reader it won't be a renowned historian who presented a certain piece of information, it'll be the Marvel Database itself, as if our site was a hive-mind. Not even experienced users can know who added what to a page without doing some extra work that involves checking a page's edit history. This is particularly tiresome if it's a page that a lot of people contribute to.
Because of these reasons, a contributor's own accounts are not enough to be considered infallible, which is why our site's guidelines require all sources of information need to be cited. Circling this back to the added pieces of trivia that I mentioned: while they are very interesting, I'm afraid that they will have to be removed unless you can provide a link to some reliable external source. It can be your own site, or some interview, or a book.
I hope that you don't take this the wrong way and understand that we're not trying to shun you or doubt your credentials, it's just the way our site has to process information since the Marvel Database is by nature a tertiary source of information like all wikis. Wikipedia themselves explain it very well in their Expert editors essay: "In Wikipedia, there are no listed authors. The only authority for content, is what sources say (...) it doesn't matter who you are or who you say you are - what matters is the quality of the sources you bring (...)"
All this has been addressed on various occasions including in the Eisner Award recognized Wally's World biography and the official Wallace Wood Estate facebook page at
I'm also attaching a screen capture of one such conversation in which Wood expert JDS and Kirby expert Evanier are in agreement that DD#5 cover is all Wood
In that case, it will be appreciated if you can go back to Daredevil #5 and add the sources for those claims using our citation guidelines. In the case of the book, it'll be better if you can consult it to be 100% sure that the stolen original art is mentioned there.
THIS professor was never named in the Sentry comics. I suggest to simply rename the page "The Professor". Naming it "Professor Cornelius" would be a mistake because Cornelius Worth (another Sentry ally) is a completely different character.
The Professor was identified as having the surname Cornelius in Sentry Vol 3 #3, but I think you may be correct that it was conflating characters. Either way, how best to resolve the situation should be discussed on the article's talk page.
It was probably an oversight of the writer. It should be noted that, in the Sentry's second miniseries, the unnamed professor and Cornelius Worth appeared TOGETHER in the same panel. Also, i deem quite unrealistic that they share exactly the same name. So it was maybe an oversight. Thank you for supporting this question.
Hi. I see that some TV episode pages have a still picture as the main image, while others feature a short trailer video instead. Which one is the proper and more preferrable way to do it? Would be it be appropriate for me to swap one for another so that episodes have more recognizeable images in category lists and such? HBK123 (talk) 10:22, December 27, 2018 (UTC)
As an unofficial rule, which we've had since 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.', is that we have a preview video as the "main image", assuming there is one available. That only really happens for shows that are released weekly, like 'AoS', 'Cloak & Dagger', and season 1 of 'Runaways'.
However that was mainly as a default because usually high resolution images of said images wouldn't be available immediately when said episodes comes out.
So for those that have videos, you can go ahead and replace with images. But remember to have the preview videos as part of the "| Recommended = " that is at the bottom of episode pages as a gallery. Much like how Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 11 does.
Quick question: I'm currently rewatching season 2 of 'Runaways', and in episode 9 is where Karolina starts hearing a voice calling for her, which she at first confuses for Nico. Is that voice meant to be Xavin, or the fourth unknown Gibborim? At first I thought it was the former, but then I realized that Xavin isn't fully shown until episode 11, which is where they start looking for Karolina.
The way I understand it is that Xavin has been trying to telepathically reach Karolina ever since episode 2 7, but that's just a theory. There were also hints as to most of the kids being possibly possessed (Nico having a different relationship with the Staff of One, Gert being sick, Chase choosing to leave the team, Alex becoming more violent), so initially I too assumed Karolina that was dealing with an internal parasite as well, but my understanding of it changed when she actually ran into Xavin. HBK123 (talk) 17:37, December 28, 2018 (UTC)
Also with Gert being sick because of being linked with Old Lace what she was sprayed by, and Nico being affected by the staff (like talking her in to killing Jonah, by whatever not disclosed by Tina regarding the staff). Although with those two on a second viewing it was obvious it wasn't because of the Gibborim, which I didn't think it was on first viewing along with Chase leaving. Although like you mentioned I did realize with Alex being more violent how that may be a hint.
But I wouldn't be surprised if said Gibborim chose to impregnate itself inside of Leslie, in order to be born in a body as a hybrid a la Karolina. I started to think that because I noticed that Leslie's belly was getting bigger unusually fast, unless I have the time-span wrong.
I try to not to put my personal theories on wiki pages, having been burned by it in another fandom. Unless something is stated pretty clearly in the source, sometimes it's better not to put into at all than add speculative stuff that can then spread to other places. HBK123 (talk) 18:22, December 28, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah it's always better to just wait (for this case assuming it's getting renewed). Like I remember when season 1 ended, one user added to Karolina and Jonah's pages that they were Majesdinians. But with the creative liberties they've gone with the show compared to the source material, I figured they were going with something else, so I just held it off until then.
