How do you place a picture Q-Swizzle 15 (talk) 14:38, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

King Hyperion formatting

I did some edits to Mark Milton (Earth-4023), just adding links to characters and teams, and the formatting of the page now seems to be off, but I can't see why that would be. Can anyone help and tell me how I managed to mess it up? It says there is a citation error, so I corrected the references to the "{{r|}}" format, but that doesn't seem to have helped - for some reason the Footnotes are just not appearing either.

Beast's Powers

With Beast having a new mutated form, what does that mean for his powers? Will they increase or decrease in any particular way? Leoman9999 (talk) 21:19, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

Need Finished Series Suggestions

Hi. Could you guys suggest a completed series or completed arc with ending that a newbie could read? Fyre839 (talk) 23:14, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

Sure. What kind of stories do you like to read?
Artful Dodger (talk) 01:41, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

Any story from Marvel is fine. I just hate waiting a month before I can continue reading the next chapter. I just like some nice series that's interesting to read.

The World War Hulk series are pretty self-contained and have been wrapped up. For X-Men, I enjoyed Age of X and if you really want to dig in, you can hit the House of M / Messiah Complex / Second Coming arcs, although those are much more widespread. Any series you read will have future consequences of course, so there may be some plotlines which don't get resolved.
You can also check out any of the Category:Limited Series on the site. By their nature, they are self contained.

Thanks a lot. I'll check all those out.

Cyclops Marvel Now! costume color

So I'm thinking of doing a Cyclops Marvel Now! costume... but I'm having trouble figuring out the actual color. Would people say its a navy blue like his astonishing/schism costume? Darker? More of a gun metal? Black (or almost black). Or is it tinted red? The Marvel Heroes picture shows more of a black with red highlights...

Not sure...

Jumping In

Um. I attempted to create a page for the Hyperion in Jonathan Hickman's Avengers run with practically no data. Then I went to write it into the paes, but found a note specifically asking people not todo that. Now I need to get rid of my Hyperion. How do I ask for a page to be deleted? CaptainKobold (talk) 21:49, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

Edit the page you made and add the code {{delete|Whateveryourreasonis}} and type your reason inside the brackets. That will tag the page and an admin will see it.

Character Template

I was wondering if I could copy the template (a simplified version maybe?), and also have help with it for a certain wiki. This wiki is currently not ready for members, so a link is not posted as of yet. If any member is able to help me add the template, I will gladly post a link. And if not, please let me know. Thank you.:) --Firestormblaze

Character Identification


Trying to find out who this is

What happened to the passengers whose plane intersected Thor's hammer in Fantastic Four #536?

In Fantastic Four #536, Mjolnir returns to Earth. On the second page of the comic the hammer's "trajectory intersected a small private plane that had departed the Seattle-Tacoma airport twenty minutes earlier, inbound to Los Angeles." JMS writes that "what happened to the plane and its passengers is another story, for another time." Was that story ever told? Thanks. NokiaTouchscreen (talk) 06:42, June 29, 2013 (UTC)


As x-23 only has adamantium claws and not her whole skeleton, if she cut off her hands or feet, would they grow back with bone claws or would they grow back without claws, meaning she would need to reattach the original hands and feet to still have claws? I'm asking because I read somewhere that to escape handcuffs x-23 cut off her hand but I didn't find out what she did after that. --Coop3 (talk) 21:03, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

Question on a comic book

I have recently came in contact with a marvel comic FOOM TEN vol.1/no.10. The issue is in good shape and does have the poster still intact on pages 16-17. It does however have a mailing slip on back side. Just looking for any information and what it might be worthDano3271 (talk) 19:30, November 1, 2013 (UTC) Thank You! Dan

Hi Dan,
We don't typically deal in value here, but we recommend for that. Best of luck!

This page seems completely dead but I thought I'd ask about Power Man and Prodigy

Why do Victor Alvarez (Power Man) and David Alleyne (Prodigy) have the exact same costume in the exact same colors? It's completely ridiculous. NokiaTouchscreen (talk) 09:21, November 23, 2013 (UTC)

Nope, it isn't dead. Most people just don't use it.
As for their costume similarity, I don't know. Maybe the artist liked that style. I know that Prodigy has had several costume changes, so maybe the artist just didn't realize it.
