Is Vanth Dreadstar part of the Marvel Multiverse?--Max 23:49, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think so. It's owned by Jim Starlin and not all of "Dreadstar" was published by Marvel. Even part of the Marvel Stuff has been reprinted by Dynamite Entertainment. A couple more are announced even. Beast of Averoigne 05:06, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm probably going to delete this article.--Max 06:37, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Hm. Conan isn't Marvel Property either... And what about Rom, Spaceknight on whom the Copyright is somewhat in Question? Beast of Averoigne 07:31, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Rom and Conan have appeared in Marvel Universe stories. This character has had no interaction with the Marvel U and the creators have taken him elsewhere. This character is off-topic, like the Transformers.--Max 07:48, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Well, Spider-Man had an appearance in Transformers # 3 back in the 80s. ;-) Beast of Averoigne 08:07, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Everyone shares the same Omniverse, but the link between Dreadstar and Marvel's sector of the Omniverse (the Marvel multiverse) is way more tenuous than that between the Transformers and Marvel. There is, as noted, a Spider-Man (and various other characters) in the Transformers reality (actually, realities, since there's the Marvel UK and Marvel US Transformers timelines, which are different), and there's another link provided by Death's Head, who travelled from Transformers (Marvel UK reality) to 616 with a few intervening stops. But it's a longer haul to connect Dreadstar to Marvel's realities. The shortest route I know is that Dreadstar met Nexus (cosmic executioner of mass murderers) via interdimensional travel, Nexus at another time met Madman via another interdimensional crossover, Madman encountered Superman in a similar manner, and Superman has encountered the 616 heroes a couple of times. So no, evidence is against Vance being part of the Marvel multiverse. Lokiofmidgaard 09:56, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
That Nexus-Guy isn't a Marvel Character (or one ever published by Marvel). Neither are Superman or Madman. So, I don't think they count. ;-) This Way all DC-Heroes (or Image or whatever) that ever crossed Paths with Marvel Heroes (or met another Guy who crossed Paths with a Marvel Hero) would have to be included. Dreadstar however had over 20 Books published by Marvel (only counting the ongoing Series, no Epic Illustrated or Annuals). If a Guy like Megawatt, who, if I'm not mistaken, had only one Appearance to date, gets a Profile, shouldn't a Guy with more than two Dozens worth of own Books published by Marvel (plus Appearances in Epic Illustrated and a couple of Annuals) get one too?! Why bother listing the Books if not?! Beast of Averoigne 10:48, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

"That Nexus-Guy isn't a Marvel Character (or one ever published by Marvel). Neither are Superman or Madman." That was the whole point of what I was saying. Dreadstar is very far removed from Marvel, despite having once been published by the,. You have to take a circuitous route through numerous non-Marvel realities to make an in-story connection between him and any Marvel character. Lokiofmidgaard 12:18, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Megawatt actually appeared in an Earth-616 Spider-Man story. That's enought reason to include him. We also list Alf's comics; it doesn't mean we create a profile for him. Transformers was probably a bad example, I admit. This subject has been discussed on the forums already. [1] At any rate, there is no evidence of this character being relevant to the Marvel multiverse and being derserving of his own profile. Doesn't make him a bad character, just off topic. I'm giving anyone who cares time to move this info to another Wiki, but otherwise, consider it a done deal. --Max 11:03, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I took Megawatt because he is 616. ;-) And because he has only one Appearance which is close to two Decades old. I'd just think, that more People would come looking for Dreadstar than for Megawatt because their is a certain kind of "following" in either the property (Transformers) or the Creator (Starlin). I don't see that with Megawatt, most readers probably don't even know that he exists. Despite the Ref here: where do I find these Forums? I dimly remember trying to log on (or register) once, but it didn't work than (some update or something) and than forgot about it... ;-) Anyway, I didn't know about any Discussions on the Forums, so, I had to mention it. :-P Beast of Averoigne 11:44, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Found the Forums, alright. :-) Beast of Averoigne 11:49, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
