  • Marvel, in their comic books use the word "nannite", whereas in most other science fiction use "nanite" for their nano-scale distributed tech. I too, think it's dumb, but I would prefer to stay with the source material's spelling.

    • Are you sure it's safe to assume "nannites" is the general spelling used in all of Marvel and wasn't exclusive to Uncanny X-Men #446? Because most comics I've read that talked about nanites, they used the word "nanites" (issues from She-Hulk, World War Hulk, Hulk, Dark Avengers, All-New Wolverine and X-Men: Gold are some examples I can provide). If that's the case, I don't think it's bad to assume "nannites" is a misspelling or an alternative spelling which could be ignored.

    • Fair. It's in multiple issues, but it's probably only Chris Claremont's comics. The article in question (Sage (Earth-616)) is 90% Chris Claremont's comics so you might not be surprised that all my research for it saw just the one spelling.

    • Understood.

    • The first instance I read of this spelling was probably: X-Treme X-Men #30
