If you're going to add to Elementals, more power to you. (I was also a big fan. ;p) Any help I can offer? Also, to join, go to the project page ("View project page" & use the "add yourself" link). Welcome. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 16:17, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

If you haven't already, can I suggest you create yourself a sandbox for a draft edit? (Open up my page, look for any of my "project page" links for the syntax to create one, & just change username & target pagename.) From there, I'd suggest copy-pasting from the existing Elementals page, doing the work in the sandbox, then just pasting back. (Probably not good to copy the whole page, tho; there's an unwritten Thing about doing that, & I don't know how to fix it. :( ) Doing it this way gives you plenty of time & avoids both edit conflicts for long work & the appearance of vandalism if you change big chunks before you get done with it all.

Glad to be of service. :) Anything else, you know where to find me. :) TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 22:00, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
IMO, most of your "combined" or "separate" issues depend on how much sourced material you've got. I favor separate character pages. (You don't need an enormous amount; have a look at Cap'n Jughead, frex.) I'm not a big fan of covering every detail of a character's history, but that seems to be the standard practise, so I guess it's your call. (Chances are, it's going to get put in anyhow. :( ) I don't distinguish between good & bad guys; the number of appearances will govern how much coverage they get, & so govern if there's enough to justify a sep page.
The team pages I've seen all have a capsule bio with links out to those; I'd go that way. Here, I'd limit to the major baddie(s), like Saker, & keep the less-frequent apps to a couple of lines, including the link out.
I'd subhead spinoffs/crossovers under publication history. It seems most sensible there, IMO. You're right, subhead them individually, by publisher, & I'd say chronologically (with dates): if there's, say, 2 Comico spinoffs (it's been too long for me to say offhand :( ), head it ==Publicaton history== ===Comico=== ====Spinoff 1==== (It'll format smaller text each time.)
IMO, you need to mention Willingham's "creation theory", because it's so different from any other. That said, I'd do it briefly on the team page, then break it out on a separate page, with as much detail as you can find. That will depend on how much is available; if it turns out you only get a 'graph or 2, a new page may not make sens. (It might do for a "creaton of superheroes" page, where the various methods could come home to, so...)
Do look at X-Men, Captain America, & Weapon X, for handling creators & contributors. You might only need something like Sable's page, with fewer involved.
On themes, IMO you get some leeway on the comics pages you won't get on the "straight" pages, since you'll tend to attract fans, not the uninitiated, & won't get hammered for "soft" sourcing. Don't ignore it, but don't feel you need to nail down every single detail with a fn. That said, you may still get tagged for "too in-universe" (Which I really don't get... How else do you describe a fictional character?); don't take it to heart.
I gotta tell you, this looks like a big job. I don't envy you for it. Good luck. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 00:01, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. I know you didn't make it, but you (through Kurt Parker) are why I found it. Spidey104contribs 16:08, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
