Do we have a source to cite?[edit]

"he has done battle with more superheroes from more franchises than any other comic book villain" More than Doctor Doom, for example, then? I'm not claiming this is untrue, but Arcade isn't the first character I'd think of in this context. Do we have a source? --Mrph 18:05, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Bias much?[edit]

"Arcade became one of the most popular villains in the Marvel Comics universe"

Fair use rationale for Image:ArcadeMarvel.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ArcadeMarvel.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

First appearance?[edit]

Is there any evidence that the Spidey-Captain Britain story was designed to appear in SMCB first, as this article suggests? I find this a little difficult to believe - I mean, where were the story breaks? Why would Chris Claremont and John Byrne do that in the middle of their run on Marvel Team-Up? I suppose the author of this article might be assuming things based on cover dates, but given that the US cover dates would often indicate the month the comic was to be taken off the racks as opposed to the month they're put on them (look at the indicia of any given comic and think about when you bought it), I would assume the MTU issues came out at about the same time. It just seems strange to describe Marvel Team-Up #65 as a "reprint" of something that was designed specifically to see print in that issue! MultipleTom (talk) 18:42, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

At that time, Marvel UK was reprinting US stories, not the other way around. Without reference this statement needs to be removed. Actually, much of this article is fannish opinions without citations.173.88.154.149 (talk) 01:51, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Article naming conventions[edit]
