Name

Moving to Casket "Marvel Universe Wiki on Marvel.com calls it "Casket" and a Google phrase search confirms that as most common" - and while I agree with the move, both of those are utterly terrible reasons for moving it. It's a major error to assume information to be correct because it is on a wiki site that anyone can edit, even Marvel's own one, and the internet, where false information is frequently copied from one site to another by people who don't bother to do their own research (just see how many sites, this one included, have copied false character names initially posted on Wikipedia). The reason it should be moved to Casket, rather than Cask, is because (1) Casket is a type of box, while Casket is a type of barrel, and the picture clearly shows this item to be the former, not the latter, and, more importantly (2) that's what the comics where it originally appeared called it. Later comics have sometimes made the error of calling it a cask, but the comics that introduced the artifact called it a casket. Those are the valid reasons - not what the internet thinks.

The real name is "Casket of Ancient Winters." Thor #346 had it named as such in a thought bubble when it was introduced. Casket is by far the most common term used for this item. -- WarBlade (talk) 02:04, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
