Co-creator[edit]

Stan Lee is not the "creator" of the various characters listed on this template, but rather the co-creator of them. In every case, there was also an artist involved in creating them. It's an important distinction, commonly misunderstood, and I don't think Wikipedia should contribute to the confusion by misreporting the facts like this. And I'm sorry, but "we're doing it wrong elsewhere too" is a really poor argument for doing it wrong here.-Jason A. Quest (talk) 17:22, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Tons of characters are created by several people. I don't care to make a major multiproject decition here. As far as I care calling someone simply "creator" is not incorrect.★Trekker (talk) 18:58, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
I know you don't care. This is addressed to people who might. -Jason A. Quest (talk) 19:13, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
In that case it would be good to take it up with a couple of projects, instead of wasting time here on one single template. This templates talkpage is for talking about this template.★Trekker (talk) 19:16, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
