Nomenclature

Adding "Magnus" really isn't a big deal, but I don't believe Colossus has gone by "Peter" in some time. It's not a huge deal, but I guess is depends on how closely we want to follow the actual information from the issue. Inside the front cover of the issue Colossus is identified as "Piotr Rasputin". Additionally, Emma Frost is identified as the "White Queen" and Namor as "Namor, the Sub-Mariner". I still feel like they should be labelled in the summary page accordingly even if they don't use those specific titles in dialogue. It's just my personal opinion though, and I feel like we've had this conversation before and I've been out ranked:-/ --Gipdac 17:34, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

X-Men Vol 3 #20 includes Storm calling him "Peter" (and "Peter" is the English equivalent of "Piotr", so both are equally correct, and why I won't change someone's "Piotr" to "Peter"). As for Namor being identified as Sub-Mariner and Emma as White Queen, I'm not sure why they chose to do that, since neither actively goes by those names (and, if you check the roster in the back, Emma is listed as Emma, and Namor as Namor, while Cyclops is listed as Cyclops, etc.). We don't list them as such because it's not accurate in current continuity. That may change, and it's certainly true of certain past issues, but it's not true right now. But Erik Magnus Lehnsherr is no more or less accurate than Erik Lehnsherr, and Piotr is no less accurate than Peter, so there's no need to change them. Whichever's first on the page should be what stays, unless something else is more accurate.
