Fair use rationale for Image:Wolverine3.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Wolverine3.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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with Image:Wolverinevo.PNG[edit]

The image Image:Wolverinevo.PNG is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --06:56, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

I like Logan, but I hope, they make a movie without him, so other charakter can develop. --Fried-- — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.141.183.170 (talk) 21:31, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Collected together, these 3 are effectively an image gallery. There's also the nagging problem that there is very, very little difference in how the character is depicted without the costume.

I'm not convinced there's even enough reason for one of these, let alone all 3.

And please note, the 1996 image is up for deletion here.

And Taslogan.jpg has been deleted. - J Greb (talk) 13:20, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
And the last two pulled... To be brutally honest, having a costume/cowl-less image for each show isn't going to fly. A great effort was made to keep the character's "civilian" look consistent. One image, and the film is the most compelling since it's also "this actor played..." is sufficient.
Now if we were to get into the costume variants...

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Withdrawn. Given that the related move discussion resulted in Wolverine (character) remaining where it is, the fact that I did not specify a move target has seemingly clouded this discussion. I'm going to withdraw this discussion, and start a new one below. Steel1943 (talk) 18:21, 28 August 2014 (UTC)



Wolverine in other media? – The current title is incredibly ambiguous, especially given the fact that the current primary topic for the term "wolverine" is the animal, not the comic book character. However, I'm not sure what to rename the page ... but it would have to be something less ambiguous than the current one. Relisted.

Wolverine in other mediaWolverine (character) in other media – The current title is ambiguous, especially given the fact that the current primary topic for the term "wolverine" is the animal, not the character from the comic book series. Since the related move discussion resulted in the character's article remaining with the title Wolverine (character), this article's title should match to avoid confusion for readers finding this article, and then thinking that it is about a subject listed on Wolverine (disambiguation) other than the character. (Please refer to the previous move discussion on this talk page for more information.) Steel1943 (talk) 18:37, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I'm going to ever-so weakly oppose. Re the disambiguation I think a relevant question is, would Jeff Hardy (professional wrestler) or Hugo Viana (fighter) be likely to get into "other media"? And what about this little fella. Until the game sonic the wolverine comes out I don't think other media greatly applies to non-mutants without adamantium skeletons.
