Move Discussions

Dru-Zod (DC Extended Universe) to Zod (DC Extended Universe)

He is never named "Dru-Zod" in any media, only "Zod". —MakeShift (talk · contribs) 10:49, March 28, 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose: The character is an adaptation of Dru-Zod. In the comics, "Zod" is the surname (so that's what he is usually called). So unless that is officially debunked as his full name in the DCEU, I don't see any reason to move it. DarkKnight2149 17:38, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
  • I can't say I see this as a reason to keep it as is, as that's a "guilty unless proven innocent" sort of approach. —MakeShift (talk · contribs) 04:13, November 23, 2017 (UTC)

Alexander Luthor (DC Extended Universe) to Alexander Luthor, Jr. (DC Extended Universe)

See the talk page. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 00:21, March 30, 2016 (UTC)

Titano (Earth-One) to Toto (Earth-One)

The Super-Ape was originally a non-super chimp named Toto. Naming conventions suggest a move. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 17:39, October 16, 2016 (UTC)

Thing From 40,000 A.D. (Earth-One) to Thing (Earth-One)

Never called "Thing From 40,000 A.D." in-universe. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 15:59, December 22, 2016 (UTC)

Every (Injustice: Gods Among Us) character page to Injustice: Earth One and Every (Injustice: The Regime) page to Injustice

See talk page. --- Haroldrocks talk 02:57, May 19, 2017 (UTC)

The Albino (Wildstorm Universe) to Albino (Wildstorm Universe)

We don't start character page name with "The". DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 19:57, July 30, 2017 (UTC)

Frank Chandler (Earth 2) to Charles Chandler (Earth 2)

Earth 2 Chas was introduced before Prime Earth Chas. Earth 2 Chas is only ever referred to as "Chas", however Prime Earth Chas, who is supposed to be a perfect doppelganger of his Earth 2 counterpart, is named Charles. I think that retoactively makes Earth 2 Chas' real name Charles, but, if that's too much of a leap, I'll accept Chas Chandler (Earth 2) instead. He just shouldn't be Frank. --- Haroldrocks talk 19:08, August 26, 2017 (UTC)

Where did we get the name Frank from? Just curious... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 01:27, August 27, 2017 (UTC)
Frank has traditionally been his name from the original Vertigo Hellblazer run from what I understand. It wasn't too much of a leap to think it carried over in the New 52 until The Hellblazer Rebirth threw us for a loop. --- Haroldrocks talk 02:06, August 27, 2017 (UTC)

Weather Man (Earth-S) to Weatherman (Earth-S)

This character is called "Weatherman" in-story and "Weather Man" in the story title. The in-story name wins. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:52, August 26, 2017 (UTC)

Weather Man to Weatherman

Three of the four characters on the page are "Weatherman". That should be the name of the page. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:54, August 26, 2017 (UTC)

Johnny Cloud II (New Earth) to John Cloud II (New Earth)

Technically, there is no Johnny Cloud #1. His grandfather, who he's presumably named after, was named Flying Cloud, Johnny was a nickname. However, there's another guy, a relative of Johnny II, named John Cloud who was introduced like 10 years before him. So now we have a Wally West Prime Earth situation where two cousins are named after the same grandfather. With a move, we'd have Flying "Johnny" Cloud, John Cloud, and this guy - John "Johnny" Cloud, which, IMO, is good enough. --- Haroldrocks talk 20:57, September 26, 2017 (UTC)

John Curry (Prime Earth) back to Danny Ruby (Prime Earth)

Sigh. The 5-issue-long reveal that his real name was John Curry was a red herring. John Curry is somebody else entirely, Debbie got the evidence wrong. Don't move this yet. The mystery's supposed to conclude next issue, and I don't want us to have to move the page again in a month if they decide to throw us for a loop again. I'll bump this when the issue comes out. --- Haroldrocks talk 03:24, September 30, 2017 (UTC)

Bumping. Yup, John Curry is a totally separate person. Danny Ruby's stuff needs to be moved to Danny Ruby (Prime Earth) and a separate page for John Curry has to be made in its place. --- Haroldrocks talk 18:06, October 28, 2017 (UTC)

Lucas Trent (Futures End) to Midnighter (Futures End)

"Lucas Trent" was never his real name. --FabioEscorpiao (talk) 02:35, October 15, 2017 (UTC)

S.H.A.Z.A.M. and S.H.A.Z.A.M. (Flashpoint Paradox) to Captain Thunder (Flashpoint Timeline) and Captain Thunder (Flashpoint Paradox)

To those confused, this is actually a mistake. The combined form of the SHAZAM kids is actually called Captain Thunder. I own both a physical copy of both Flashpoint Vol 2 1 and of Flashpoint Paradox the movie. To those who do not believe me, here is a link to a clip on Youtube of Wonder Woman vs Captain Thunder, and an explanation of Captain Thunder on comicvine. —ClassicFan92 (talk · contribs)ClassicFan92 (talk) 22:44, November 7, 2017 (UTC)

Savitar (Arrow) to Savitar (Arrow: 2024)

He does not come from 2024, but from either 2020 or 2021, so the page should not be moved. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ninja72 (talk • contribs).

Or at least, not to that. --Tupka217 17:42, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
There are so many possible futures / alternate timelines between The Flash and Legends, I'm not too concerned with moving Savitar. I think the idea behind naming it 2024 is because that's the year in the future Barry goes to look for help. So, even though Savitar was created in 2020 or 2021, he's from a timeline that Barry visited in 2024 and is being used as a catch-all term for characters from that timeline, not the year specifically.
While I'm interested in making pages for that alternate timeline / possible future characters from The Flash (2014 TV Series) Episode: The Once and Future Flash (because right now, they're just notes on the episode page which IMO is kinda lame), regardless, if we move Savitar, he should have the same designation as those characters. --- Haroldrocks talk 18:58, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Since 2024 is the only year from that alternate future that has been shown in the series, we need to have all characters from that future under the Arrow: 2024 designation. DalekSupreme13 (talk) 09:37, November 13, 2017 (UTC)

Counterpoint: He doesnt actually come from this timeline. He comes from a timeline, which was erased, when his future self from a few seconds later travelled to his time, turning him into a time remnant. (Ninja72 (talk) 16:04, February 3, 2018 (UTC))

Christopher Kent to Lor-Zod

The Prime Earth version is unlikely to ever go by "Chris Kent." The birth name is the common denominator between all versions. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:38, November 19, 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. Unless we have some significant changes, Lor-Zod seems a far better optionGZilla311 (talk) 00:17, November 20, 2017 (UTC)

Late, but what about a split? There are Chrisses who aren't Lors and vice versa.--Tupka217 21:31, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Otto Muller (Earth-One) to Otto Müller (Earth-One)

In the comics, his last name is written consistently as "Müller", not "Muller". If, for some technical reason, we can't have a ü in a pagename, then the pagename should be changed to Otto Mueller (Earth-One), because when you can't use a ü, you are supposed to replace it with ue (not u) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 01:19, November 29, 2017 (UTC)

Major Holst (New Earth) to Major Holst (Earth-One)

A one-shot Pre-Crisis villain who died was probably not mentioned after the Crisis. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 20:50, December 4, 2017 (UTC)

I think the page has been deleted, making this moot Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:48, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Von Karnstein (New Earth) to Von Karnstein (Earth-One)

Max Regensdorf (New Earth) to Max Regensdorf (Earth-One)

1979 = Earth-One. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 01:03, December 16, 2017 (UTC)

I think the page has been deleted, making this moot... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:12, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
I think more of these one issue Nazis need to be deleted.--Tupka217 21:31, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Von Krizt (New Earth) to Von Krizt (Earth-One)

1964 = Earth-One. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 01:21, December 16, 2017 (UTC)

Thinker II (Earth-Two) to Thinker III (Earth-Two)

Batman fought a different Thinker in Detective Comics #125. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 21:20, March 2, 2018 (UTC)

Powerhouse (Earth-One) to Powerhouse I (New Earth)

Starfire, Supergirl Enemy (Earth-One) to Starfire (Earth-One)

See talk page. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:55, March 24, 2018 (UTC)

Ystina (Prime Earth) to Ystin (Prime Earth)

I can find no evidence that the Demon Knights version of Shining Knight was ever named or called "Ystina", and given that their gender is ambiguous, I see no reason to assume that their real name is anything but Ystin. -- Gnostic (talk) 05:11, April 18, 2018 (UTC)

Joshua Christian (Prime Earth) to Fan (Prime Earth)

It was established in Justice League (Volume 3) #41 that the Fan stole the identity of his childhood friend, Joshua Christian. The Fan's real name remains unknown and, with the series wrapped up, will probably stay that way. -- SadCryingClown (talk) 13:35, April 18, 2018 (UTC)

Has the real Joshua Christian ever showed up in the comics? -- Gnostic (talk) 07:05, April 20, 2018 (UTC)
Yes, in Justice League (Volume 3) #37 and Justice League (Volume 3) #41. -- SadCryingClown (talk) 08:14, April 25, 2018 (UTC)

Quietus to Quietus (Species)

Now that there is a major villain called Quietus in The Silencer Vol 1, Quietus will need to be made into a disambiguation page. I'm not sure whether Quietus (Species) would be the correct name for the Black Canary villains (are they a species?), but it's the best I could come up with. Samohyeah (talk) 23:49, April 25, 2018 (UTC)

Darkstars to Darkstars (New Earth)

Since their introduction in Prime Earth there is a need for a disambig page as there is now multiple versions, therefore Darkstars needs to be changed to Darkstars (New Earth) so the disambig can be called Darkstars. O21014 (talk) 13:54, May 17, 2018 (UTC)

Martha Kent (Superboy TV Series) to Martha Clark (Superboy TV Series)

Her sister's name is Cassandra Clark and Clark has traditionally been Martha Kent's maiden name. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 02:50, June 2, 2018 (UTC)

Buckskin Jim (Earth-Two) to Jim Kenyon (Earth-Two)

Per the first caption in the first panel of his first episode, in New Fun Comics #1, his name is Jim Kenyon. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 01:26, June 5, 2018 (UTC)

Black Manta (Prime Earth) to David Hyde (Prime Earth)

The Promotional magazine DC Nations #1 revealed that his name was David Hyde so his page should be moved accordingly. O21014 (talk) 16:25, June 6, 2018 (UTC)

Yep, page 14. Probably should make a page for it, but is it a continuiation of DC Nation Vol 2 or a whole new series? --
I's say it is a continuation.

O21014 (talk) June 15, 2018 (UTC)

Teacher Elider (New Earth) to Elider (Earth-One)

I cannot find where this character appeared (or was mentioned) post-Crisis. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 17:00, June 6, 2018 (UTC)

Is Teacher his first name? Otherwise, just Elider. --Tupka217 17:01, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
I have not read the stories, and do not have the slightest idea. Someone else will have to chime in on that. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:33, June 7, 2018 (UTC)
Teacher is just his title. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 20:39, July 6, 2018 (UTC)

Overman (Animal Man) to Overman (Earth-Seventeen)

He is from Earth-Seventeen, it is a textbook case of something that needs to be renamed, I think it might need to be here for renaming so here it is.Schroeswald (talk) 16:19, June 8, 2018 (UTC)

Spencer Gordon Bennett to Spencer Bennet

Misspelled surname. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 05:22, June 11, 2018 (UTC)

Also, not credited by his middle name on DC-related work. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 07:07, June 11, 2018 (UTC)

Doctor Doog (Earth-Two) to Doctor Doog (New Earth)

He appears in flashback in Starman Secret Files and Origins #1, though he is mistakenly called "Doctor Droog". DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 15:51, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

Linda Reed (Earth-One) to Linda Reed (Earth-Two)

She appears in Adventure Comics #167 in a Green Arrow story. Earth-One Green Arrow appeared first in Adventure Comics #218. Something0Something (talk) 17:15, June 24, 2018 (UTC)

Ramona Reed (Earth-One) to Ramona Reed (Earth-Two)

She appears in Adventure Comics #167 in a Green Arrow story. Earth-One Green Arrow appeared first in Adventure Comics #218. Something0Something (talk) 17:15, June 24, 2018 (UTC)

Unrelated, but what's the source for 218? Who's Who puts it at 250. And though one of these twins has another appearance in Solo #7 in an Earth-One setting, Solo is sorta non-canon. --Tupka217 15:41, June 24, 2018 (UTC)

Warren Thurston (Earth-One) to Warren Thurston (Earth-Two)

We're using Adventure Comics #246 as the Earth-Two/Earth-One cutoff for Green Arrow. So, this guy's on the Earth-Two side. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 03:35, June 25, 2018 (UTC)

Diana Dare (Earth-One) to Diana Dare (Earth-Two)

Trolius (Earth One) to Trolius (Earth-One)

Missing hyphen. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 01:13, July 6, 2018 (UTC)

Edward Raymond (New Earth) to Edward Rockwell (New Earth)

Ed's birth name, as revealed in Firestorm Annual (Volume 2) #1, was Edward Rockwell. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 18:50, July 8, 2018 (UTC)

That is true of Ronnie (his son, Firestorm) too. Are we ready to make that change? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 01:34, July 9, 2018 (UTC)

I cannot find where this character appeared (or was mentioned) post-Crisis. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 16:28, July 10, 2018 (UTC)

Sylvester Borgman (Prime Earth) to Sy Borgman (Prime Earth)

I can't find any evidence his name is actually Sylvester. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 10:55, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia, "Sy" is much more likely to be short for Seymour than Sylvester. Not that I think the page should be changed to Seymour Borgman (Prime Earth); I'm just wondering where Sylvester came from... Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:30, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

Sylvester Borgman (Old Lady Harley) to Sy Borgman (Old Lady Harley)

See above. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 10:55, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

Infinite Woman (Prime Earth) to Kyra Arg (Prime Earth)

The Immortal Men Vol 1 4 reveals her name is Kyra, and she is Klarn Arg's sister. Man Wolf (talk) 19:05, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

There are many reasons why siblings may have different last names. I don't think we should assume her last name is Arg. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:37, July 11, 2018 (UTC)
Especially since she's a cavewoman! Who knows how their naming system worked. For now, I think we should assume Kyra is her full name. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:41, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

Timber (Prime Earth) to Keshena Carpentier (Prime Earth)

The Immortal Men Vol 1 4 reveals her first name to be Keshena, and she is part of the Carpentier Family. Man Wolf (talk) 19:28, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

Tally Man I (The Tyrant) to Tally Man (The Tyrant)

There's only one Tally Man in this Elseworlds reality. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:18, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

Cairo to Cairo, Egypt

Dingbats to Dingbats of Danger Street (New Earth)

The official name is Dingbats of Danger Street. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:23, July 14, 2018 (UTC)

Pryllgu (Earth-One) to Pryllgu

Changing from character to race page. Kyletheobald (talk) 17:02, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

Rebecca Paige (Prime Earth) to Rebecca Barrow (Prime Earth)

Maiden name. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 09:23, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

Sindella Zatara (New Earth) to Sindella (New Earth)

1) "Sindella" is her maiden name, and thus the earlier name, which is what we like.
2) There isn't any evidence that she changed her name to "Sindella Zatara" when she got married anyway. The page is written as if she stayed just "Sindella", and that's what I remember too from the comics. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:43, July 19, 2018 (UTC)

Vampire Master (Earth-Two) to Bart Moore (Earth-Two)

Per the caption in the first panel of the Doctor Occult story in More Fun Comics #9. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 03:08, July 21, 2018 (UTC)

Doom That Came to Gotham to The Doom That Came to Gotham

Also characters within the continuity:

--HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 06:37, July 23, 2018 (UTC)

I think we need to talk about the. At one time, we never ever started any pagename with The, but now we do, depending on what kind of page it is. What are the guidelines? Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:49, July 23, 2018 (UTC)
It had to do with alphabetization, but I don't know how fixed {{TheSort}} is atm. --Tupka217 14:59, July 23, 2018 (UTC)

Name (Arrow) to Name (Arrow: Earth-1)

I.e. Oliver Queen (Arrow) to Oliver Queen (Arrow: Earth-1), etc.

Currently, although the page titles contain (Arrow), the infoboxes and categories contain Arrow (TV Series), which describes the show rather than the reality. Changing it to Arrow: Earth-1 allows the show and the reality to be distinguished, as well as making it consistent with Arrow: Earth-2, Arrow: Earth-3 etc. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 08:58, July 23, 2018 (UTC)

No. The same goes for every adaptation with a multiverse, like Smallville, the DCAU, and The Brave and the Bold. The main continuity gets the short title.
It's way too much work for no payoff to move them. As many of these are also linked on other websites, making them link to redirects hurts SEO. --Tupka217 12:03, July 23, 2018 (UTC)
What about keeping the page titles but changing the categories? --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 12:48, July 23, 2018 (UTC)
I don't see the point. Is it causing any technical issue? --Tupka217 12:54, July 23, 2018 (UTC)
Currently Earth-1 characters don't have a unique category. They're put in Category:Arrow (TV Series) Characters by both the infobox and Template:Arrow, while characters from other universes are put into the appropriate reality category AND also get the template putting them into Category:Arrow (TV Series) Characters. E.g. Oliver Queen (Arrow: Earth-2) is in Category:Arrow: Earth-2 Characters and Category:Arrow (TV Series) Characters, while Oliver Queen (Arrow) is only in Category:Arrow (TV Series) Characters. Changing the infobox from "Universe: Arrow (TV Series)" to "Universe: Arrow (Earth-1)" would make it consistent and allow Earth-1 characters to be distinguished from the rest. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 13:17, July 23, 2018 (UTC)
I don't see that as much of an issue. All characters with a short name are from the main continuity, the longer ones are the exception. --Tupka217 13:37, July 23, 2018 (UTC)
Like Tupka says, it'd be too much work. Not to mention, it wouldn't just be an easy matter of "Arrow: Earth-1". We have characters like Sara Diggle (Arrow) and John Diggle, Jr. (Arrow), who are exclusive to the pre-Flashpoint respective post-Flashpoint continuity. Then there's Lily Stein (Arrow), who was created thanks to her father interacting with his younger self. So, we'd have to factor in things like that. We might then end up with "Arrow: Earth-1 Pre-Flashpoint" and "Arrow: Earth-1 Post-Flashpoint" categories. Which, in turn, could mean that we'd have to do a massive amount of re-working, every time someone alters the timeline.KylieMfever (talk) 13:51, July 23, 2018 (UTC)

Reiser (Prime Earth) to Doomed (Prime Earth)

Reiser is his forename, not an alias. His surname is unknown. -- Something0Something (talk) 13:51, July 25, 2018 (UTC)

I'd be tempted to let this one stay as is. I know some people hate first-name-only pagenames, but at least this is a fairly unique first name. (Slightly off topic, how did this guy have his own series but never get a last name?) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:20, July 25, 2018 (UTC)
I second leaving it as it is along with the one below. As for him not getting a last name, it's possible that it is Sorentino. That's his aunt's surname, but we're never told if she ever married, if she is his maternal or paternal aunt, or if they even share any blood! Plus, out of all of his appearances (which I own, along with Roman's), they never once mention his surname, or if he even goes by Doomed. We hear Doomsday once or twice, but I've seen that he is editorially known as "Doomed." -- Bobbie goodman (talk) 22:44, July 25, 2018 (UTC)
Wow. Yeah, if no one in the stories ever actually called the character "Doomed", then we definitely shouldn't change the pagename to Doomed. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 23:15, July 25, 2018 (UTC)
Yep. And after thoroughly checking his appearances again, he's referred to as Doomsday by the general public (including himself), Doomsday Jr. by Tim Drake, and Reiser by assorted Titans (mainly Cassie). Bobbie goodman (talk) 23:32, July 25, 2018 (UTC)

Roman (Prime Earth) to Alpha Centurion (Prime Earth)

Roman is his forename, not an alias. His surname is unknown. -- Something0Something (talk) 13:51, July 25, 2018 (UTC)

Jason Woodrue (Batman and Harley Quinn) to Jason Woodrue (DCAU)

(And likewise other Batman and Harley Quinn characters.) The movie is usually considered to be in the DCAU. The article already has a lot of links to the DCAU wiki for DCAU characters. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 07:33, July 29, 2018 (UTC)

At the moment. this database is of the opinion that Batman and Harley Quinn is not part of the DCAU, although that is being debated (slowly) on the movie's talk page. That debate should probably conclude one way or another before any moves are made. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:44, July 30, 2018 (UTC)
Great, so why was this moved? Also, any move back would also affect the tie-in comics, but not the one appearance in JL Adventures. Which is just as little canon as this movie, but at least that's presented as related. --Tupka217 12:47, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Phantom Stranger (Prime Earth) to Judas Iscariot (Prime Earth)

He is Judas from Christian mythology, and as such should be moved to his real name. —O21014 (talk · contribs) 13:03, July 29, 2018 (BST)

I don't really agree with this one if for no other reason than SEO. Kyletheobald (talk) 16:50, July 29, 2018 (UTC)
Yup. SEO. --Tupka217 16:56, July 29, 2018 (UTC)

DC Beach Blanket Bad Guys Special Vol 1 1 to DC's Beach Blanket Bad Guys Summer Special Vol 1 1

Squid Gang to Squid Gang (New Earth)

Ki'Yep A'Ken (Prime Earth) to Kiyep A'Ken (Prime Earth)

I goofed, and accidentally typing "Kiyep" as "Ki'yep" once led me to create the page under that name. Total mistake, he is named as "Kiyep" in his only appearance. Man Wolf (talk) 08:08, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Category:Justice League: War (Movie) to Category:DC Animated Movie Universe

That's the name used on Wikipedia, but if we don't want that I'd accept almost anything other than the current name, which is awful. Category:Justice League: War (Movie) Characters contains characters who do not actually appear in the movie. Images with "Justice League: War (Movie)" as their reality automatically get categorized in Category:Justice League: War (Movie)/Images, which is supposed to be for movie screenshots. The reality and the movie need to be distinguished from one another.

If we go with this change, pages with "(War)" in their title should probably be changed to "(DCAMU)". --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 06:28, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

I'm just glad to hear this continuity has a name. But I wish the Wikipedia page gave more information about where the name came from, and how widespread its use is. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 20:40, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
Agreed on the lack of a source. And if (iff) we're doing this, written out in full please.--Tupka217
A quick Google shows the term "DC Animated Movie Universe" is already being used on,,,, and even its own wiki (! Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:15, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

Yes, but it does show the term is established fanon, and not made up by one guy on Wikipedia. It's in use by maybe five guys ;) Shadzane 💀 (talk) 22:29, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

Clement Carp (Earth-One) to Clement Carp (New Earth)

He appears in 52 #25. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 14:08, August 8, 2018 (UTC)

Are Clement Carp and Lawrence Loman the same? --Tupka217 14:13, August 8, 2018 (UTC)
According to the first note on Clement Carp (Earth-One) they are. Shadzane 💀 (talk)

Feitheran to Feitherans

The race has always been referred to as the "Feitherans". Plural. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:54, August 9, 2018 (UTC)

Harriet Pratt (DCAU) to Harriet Pratt (Prime Earth)

See the discussion at Talk: Harley Quinn: Harley Loves Joker. --HarleyWelcomeQuinn (talk) 13:42, August 10, 2018 (UTC)

Outsiders (Prime Earth) to Outsiders (Weapon Clans)

In order to split the Lemire/Sorrentino creation from the Prime Earth version of the team originally created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 20:46, August 22, 2018 (UTC)

John Wayne (Preacher) to Marion Robert Morrison (Preacher)

I didn’t research and thought John Wayne was his actual name. Crazylatin77 (talk) 16:09, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

If you look at the archives, you will see at least one discussion about real people and their birth names. (Search for "Cleopatra") The gist is, for real people only, we don't care so much about the pagename reflecting their earliest legal name. For real people, we are totally OK with their pagename being the same as their page name on Wikipedia. So this move is not necessary. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:18, August 29, 2018 (UTC)
Also, noone knows who Marion Morrison is. SEO won't matter much as this isn't something anyone will search for, but I'm going to cite SEO reasons anyway. I also suggest moving Marion Robert Morrison (New Earth). --Tupka217 19:36, August 29, 2018 (UTC)
Does the same apply to Norma Jean Baker (Watchmen)? Crazylatin77 (talk) 20:23, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

Andy Warhol (Watchmen) to Andrew Warhola (Watchmen)

I goofed and didn’t notice the red link had his artistic name instead of his real name. Crazylatin77 (talk) 16:09, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

Move not necessary, IMHO. See above. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 19:19, August 29, 2018 (UTC)
Agree. --Tupka217 19:36, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

Marion Robert Morrison (New Earth) to John Wayne (New Earth)

As suggested by Tupka217 above, "no one knows who Marion Morrison is. SEO won’t matter much as this isn’t something anyone will search for" Crazylatin77 (talk) 20:36, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

Mad Harriet (Smallville) to Harriet (Smallville)

The character is only identified by the name "Harriet". With this version being a human girl, it's unlikely that "Mad Harriet" is her name.KylieMfever (talk) 18:01, September 1, 2018 (UTC)

Hocus and Pocus to Hocus and Pocus (Earth-Two)

There is also Hocus and Pocus (Earth-508). Hocus and Pocus should be a disambiguation page. Hocus and Pocus (Earth-508) only appear once however. -- Something0Something (talk) 14:56, September 7, 2018 (UTC)

When we create pages for teams, we don't give them a Earth designation initially (unlike characters), because we are willing to accept some variations in teams. So if the Earth-508 Hocus and Pocus are roughly the same deal as the Earth-Two Hocus and Pocus (two amateur magicians (and a rabbit) who come to believe (erroneously) that they have real magic powers), one page should be fine. The move you want should only be done if the Earth-508 Hocus and Pocus are in some way different enough to warrant their own page. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 15:19, September 7, 2018 (UTC)
There are common ideas, but they aren't really the same. They can't use real magic and are aware of it. One day, Felix Faust (Earth-508) hides a magical item in Hocus' hat which gives it magical powers. That only brings them trouble but they never believe they suddenly developed magical powers. When Felix comes back to get back his magical item, Hocus and Pocus use it to defeat Felix. After that, they aren't really interested in fake magic any longer and want to become detectives instead. Is that different enough or are the ties t the original one still too strong ? -- Something0Something (talk) 17:37, September 7, 2018 (UTC)
In this case, the team is pretty much a single character. --Tupka217 16:05, September 7, 2018 (UTC)

Creator² (Earth-One) to Creator² (Earth-Two)

Creator² and his alien cohorts seem to be based in and native to the Earth-Two universe. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 00:39, September 11, 2018 (UTC)

Actors:Rachael McFarlane to Actors:Rachael MacFarlane

Typo. Crazylatin77 (talk) 06:58, September 15, 2018 (UTC)

Power Girl's Cat (New Earth) to Stinky (New Earth)

In Power Girl (Volume 2) #12, Power Girl considers several names for her cat before settling on "Stinky". She literally says "Stinky it is" in page 12. MektonZ (talk) 09:12, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

Linda Danvers (Earth-One) to Kara Zor-El Clone (Earth-One)

Linda Danvers isn't a distinct identity, but one she temporarily took from the real Kara Zor-El. To avoid confusion, she should be moved to "Kara Zor-El Clone".KylieMfever (talk) 17:48, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

Challengers (Prime Earth) to Challengers of the Unknown (Prime Earth)

Aside from a re-imagined team appearing early on in the New 52 in three issues in DC Universe Presents Vol 1, the team has been presented as the classic Challs, name and all. We should move the page to that. Kyletheobald (talk) 17:24, September 20, 2018 (UTC)

Azrael (Superboy TV Series) to Death (Superboy TV Series)

If "Death" is her real name, that's what the page should be called. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:30, September 24, 2018 (UTC)

Curtis Bohannon (Flash 1990 TV Series) to Curtis Bohannon, Jr. (Flash 1990 TV Series)

This is his full name. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 22:40, September 24, 2018 (UTC)

Saro (Planet) to Saro

The planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto all have (Planet) in their names, so that seems like the normal way to name a planet. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 07:38, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

Nope, it's a disambig thing. Because they're also Roman gods. --Tupka217 07:41, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

I sit corrected. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 14:34, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

Shade, the Changing Man (Shorts) to Shade the Changing Man (Shorts)

While there was a comma in the redlink from the DC Nation page I used to make the page, the comma is not presence in the show or it's name. Man Wolf (talk) 20:28, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

Purple Piledriver (Earth-One) to Purple Pile-Driver (Earth-One)

As far as I can tell, he only appeared in Action Comics #464 and Superman #371. In both issues, he is consistently referred to as the "Purple Pile-Driver". DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 14:28, October 7, 2018 (UTC)

Nora Allen (Arrow) to Nora West-Allen (Arrow)

Full name is confirmed in the Season 5 premiere. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 00:03, October 10, 2018 (UTC)

Orm (Prime Earth) to Orm Marius (Prime Earth)

Since his introduction in the New 52 Orm has been called by Orm Marius several times, such as in Mera: Queen of Atlantis Vol 1 2. His name should be changed to reflect this. O21014 (talk) 17:25, October 13, 2018 (UTC)
