Too much detail / huge[edit]

This template was way too big and had too much detail on team membership and a current storyline. With that removed, this is a great template. Removal follows previous discussions that have led to the deletion of membership-based templates. --Chris Griswold () 19:55, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Echoing ChrisGriswold, the "Creators" category is untenable, and I've commented it out until we can discuss this. We already have the article List of Marvel Comics people, which has 100-200 names. Are all those dozens and dozens of writers/artists going into that box? What's the criteria??? --Tenebrae 03:47, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Defunct Lines[edit]

We have 3 sections for former divisions (Historical, Defunct Imprints, Defunct Lines) and 2 for current divisions (Current Imprints, Current Lines). It's less precise but I think "Current Divisions" and "Former Divisions" would simplify navigation. Thoughts? RevelationDirect (talk) 15:06, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Line / Imprint[edit]

What's the difference in these categories? Argento Surfer (talk) 18:53, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Entries for Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and Official Marvel Index[edit]

I think the OHOTMU and the Official Marvel Index should get an entry in this template cause I see them as essential articles regarding secondary literature about Marvel Comics characters and comic books. Maybe under "Related"?

BTW: Are the Marvel Books not an adaptation of the stories/characters of Marvel Comics into book format? Shouldn't the entry then consequently be listed under "Adaptations"? - Weapon X (talk, contribs) Germany 18:34, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
