    Move discussion at the joker[edit]

    This is a discussion that is of relevance to this project. here

    Invisible Woman[edit]

    Which version of File:Invisible Woman.png was better? User:NeoBatfreak uploaded a different picture over the older one. (talk) 11:41, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

    Hard to say. The new one is less representative of how she's normally drawn, but does show her actually turning invisible. The old one is a more traditional style and costume, but the blue lightning effect on her head doesn't really show her powers. I recommend seeking a third option. I tried to find one myself but had to abandon the effort immediately. Even with safe search on, the image results for "Invisible Woman" aren't something I can have on my workstation. Argento Surfer (talk) 13:57, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
    The new one has her going partially invisible, which illustrates better her powers, but it's also "incomplete", as her arms are not fully within the frame. Also, it has less "empty space" around. Keep it for the moment, but an alternative would be better. Cambalachero (talk) 14:00, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

    Category:Marvel vs. Capcom fighters[edit]

    Opinions on Category:Marvel vs. Capcom fighters and its usefulness? (talk) 23:24, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

    We similarly have a Category:Super Smash Bros. fighters. I think these evolved from the practice of creating categories for fighting game characters for stuff like Street Fighter. I think this question may fit better at the video game WikiProject. Is it a defining characterstic of these characters that they have been playable in this large franchise? I personally think yes. ~Maplestrip/Mable (chat) 10:07, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
    It's clearly defined and not duplicating another category. Seems fine to me. Argento Surfer (talk) 12:36, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

    The King of Fighters 2003[edit]

    I've been meaning to expand the articles from The King of Fighters and realized I there was a comic that was translated to English: 2003. I don't know if this is the project to discuss it but I thought I would need advice. In regards to reception I only found four sources:

    • Thomas, Lucas M. (March 8, 2008). "The King of Fighters 2003 Vol. 1 Review". IGN. Retrieved July 29, 2008.
    • Sparrow, A.E. (May 27, 2008). "King of Fighters 2003: Volume 4 Review". IGN. Archived from the original on October 3, 2015. Retrieved August 23, 2008.
    • "External Book Reviews: The King of Fighters 2003: The Comic, Volume 1". Genji Press. April 4, 2007. Archived from the original on March 4, 2016. Retrieved October 8, 2015.
    • Leary, Ben (October 15, 2008). "King of Fighters 2003 Vol. #05". Mania. Demand Media. Archived from the original on October 18, 2012. Retrieved November 12, 2010.

    You think this has potential to create an article. I have no idea since I have never created a comic article. Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 22:36, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

    Just the sources you brought up here is a bit weak, but one or two more reliable sources and it would make a fine article, I would say. Notability guidelines for stand-alone comic books aren't particularly different than those for stand-alone video games. I have no idea if Genji Press and are reliable myself. Of course, you can always write about it on the main franchise article and split it off summary-style if needed. ~Maplestrip/Mable (chat) 08:21, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

    I'm sure Mania is reliable based on it's owner but I don't know about Genji.Tintor2 (talk) 13:48, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

    Found another one

    Superman (Donnerverse) sandbox[edit]

    I recently created this. Inspired by the likes of all those other based on spinoff articles and seeing if I can make a few more. Does anyone feel that this might be acceptable or ready for Wikipedia? Also if so what might be a good title for it since I feel that "Donnerverse" is most likely a fan name?

    Carnage cameo in Venom movie?[edit]

    So we know that Woody Harrelson makes a cameo at the end of the Venom movie as a serial killer claiming "there will be carnage". As far as I can tell, the character is unnamed, but it is likely that this is an easter egg to suggest that the character is Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, which is WP:OR without a WP:RS to back that up. this edit by User:Kirbanzo which I removed initially as unsourced, and they restored with a source (after accusing me of being disruptive on my talk page, albeit for removing an unsourced claim), makes the claim that Harrelson is set to reprise the role in a sequel. The source makes the claim that "Marvel fans will know Harrelson’s character as Cletus Kasady" which may or may not be dubious. I do find the claim of him appearing in a sequel to be especially dubious, since the source only says "Since Harrelson only cameoed, there’s no doubt he’s signed on for a Venom sequel with Hardy. Perhaps the film will be called Venom vs Carnage" which is clearly very speculative. (talk) 15:02, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

    I agree that the source is speculation at best. Is Harrelson credited in the film, and if so, how? I suspect that that'll be the clincher, although doubtlessly other sources will emerge in the coming days 'confirming' this as Kasady. --Killer Moff (talk) 16:10, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
    I was pretty sure Harrelson is signed on for a sequel, but his quote here isn't as clear as I remembered. At this time, I think speculation about his identity and his role in the sequel is WP:CRYSTAL, and I would omit it. Argento Surfer (talk) 16:49, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
    • Ok, source is flawed upon further review. Free to remove as WP:CRYSTAL. Kirbanzo (talk) 17:32, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
    How about this source? Jhenderson 777 17:09, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

    I have seen the film and he is pretty prominently credited as the character, so there should be a decent source somewhere to back that up. - adamstom97 (talk) 01:47, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

    Category:Fictional humanoids[edit]

    User:Davidgoodheart has been adding Category:Fictional humanoids to a variety of different characters as seen here; I'm not even sure what is supposed to be in that category, but surely it does just belong everywhere? (talk) 04:56, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    The reason that I had added humanoids to the Fantastic Four is because thing and the other one that (shown glowing with the letter A on his outfit) are both humanoids. I also do not understand why you said not to include people like lizard on the list. And why don't Red Skull, Feral (comics), and Hobgoblin (comics) belong on the list? These are clearly humanoids, so what is your reason behind this? Davidgoodheart (talk) 06:54, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    The problem lies in that the parent article for the category is List of humanoid aliens, and all the characters you've mentioned here are mutated humans rather than aliens (although there is an alien Hobgoblin). The category and parent article as a whole do seem rather ill-defined, though, and probably require more work. --Killer Moff (talk) 09:59, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
    Isn't anything resembling a human a "humanoid"? I do think the category name should be made more specific. ~Maplestrip/Mable (chat) 12:55, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
    Ill-defined is putting it mildly. Sub-cats of Fictional humanoids include "Disney Princess characters‎", "Fictional elves‎" and "South Park characters‎". Pairing it to the list of Humanoid aliens is a real stretch. Argento Surfer (talk) 13:08, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
    @Killer Moff: Mutated humans? Well since you put it that way I would say that you are right. Thanks for giving me that information as I had not considered that before. Maybe you can see if there is anyone else you can add to the list. Davidgoodheart (talk) 21:10, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
    I can't speak for Killer Moff, but when they described the category as "ill-defined" I doubt they are going to be adding any more characters to that category. 2600:1700:E820:1BA0:EC00:758E:87AE:9323 (talk) 13:01, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

    The main article here is Humanoid: "something that has an appearance resembling a human without actually being one". By various definitions these includes real or hypothetical species which are outside the genus Homo, humanoid robots, mythic humanoids, a number of depictions of extraterrestrials in both science fiction and ufology, and various fantasy races. Humans have a tendency to craft characters in their own image, as noted by Xenophanes:

    • "Men make gods in their own image; those of the Ethiopians are black and narrow-nosed, those of the Thracians have blue eyes and red hair." Dimadick (talk) 12:18, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
    Not according to the description at the top of the category page. Argento Surfer (talk) 12:38, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
    The description should be changed as it actually contradicts both the main article and parent category Category:Humanoids.Dimadick (talk) 14:59, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

    Ambiguous Params on Template:WikiProject Comics[edit]

    Howdy all. I'm doing some cleanup of pages that are tagged as needing an infobox when the already have an infobox. In the process I came across Template:WikiProject Comics and discovered a small issue. Unlike the majority of templates that use Template:WPBannerMeta, the WP Comics one uses {{{image}}} & {{{infobox}}} (almost all others use {{{needs-image}}} and {{{needs-infobox}}}). The issue is that {{{image}}} can be interpreted two ways... Some people read is as "this article HAS an image" and some read it as "this article NEEDS an image". So this leads to people (with the absolute best of intentions) misusing the template and thus categorizing pages incorrectly. I have updated the template to allow for {{{needs-infobox}}} to work IN ADDITION TO {{{infobox}}}. In the mean time I am tracking pages that are using the deprecated parameter with Category:Pages using WikiProject templates with deprecated infobox param. Since I have no affiliation with this project, I just wanted to throw this out there so people know that the heck I'm doing. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, don't hesitate to {{ping}} me! --Zackmann (Talk to me/What I been doing) 19:26, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    Character templates[edit]

    I think in particular IP has kind of been going berserk with these lately; witness these on Nova as just one example. There might be other users doing this too; will let you know if I see more. 2600:1700:E820:1BA0:9558:F3CD:6F7D:348C (talk) 04:57, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

    Supreme Intelligence[edit]

    Does anyone have sources to add to Supreme Intelligence which is currently at AFD? Has there been any hint as to the character's possible involvment in future MCU films? (talk) 21:29, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

    Graphic Novel vs TPB[edit]

    I'd appreciate some input on this merge discussion. Thanks! Argento Surfer (talk) 20:45, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
