Thank you for uploading new content to the DC Database project!
We have lots of images in our database, 124,348 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.
Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
As a guide, look what other images in a character's gallery are called, and continue with the same name and number. If you upload a first image of a character, use "[Name] [Universe] 001". Do not use parentheses, or the full pagename. Ignore the Universe designation if it is a New Earth character.
Issue covers should be given at least the title of the series, the volume and the number. A name similar to the issue is preferred: "Title Vol 1 1". Textless covers should be called "Title Vol 1 1 Textless". Files that do not indicate the issue number will be deleted.
Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
Selecting the proper license is vital to properly maintaining our images. Please choose the license which best describes the image you are uploading. The most commonly used are 'Comic Single Panel' and 'Comic Cover', respectively.
Other fields that should be filled in: Issue, Subject1, Artist. Add Source if you've taken it from a different site. If you've taken it from a different site and don't know the issue, DO NOT UPLOAD IT.
Yeah I see what you're saying. So far I've added the premiere assassins I could think of, but I was unsure about adding more from the assassins category, since I don't have references for them. Do you think it would be better if we got rid of it?
Technically, in the comics, when Barry Allen was in the Crisis on Infinite Earths, he runs so fast that he turns into pure Speed Force energy and goes back in time to give his past self superspeed. That is how Barry acquired his powers. He never went to Wayne Manor to gain superspeed. Barry's future self is the reason he even has superspeed in the first place.
Barry has still been shown to use his ring to carry his suit, meaning he's wearing the metal suit, and it's already been established that he uses electromagnetism to put on the suit. He has not yet shown the ability to create any Speed Force constructs, so I really doubt he does this to manipulate his mask. That wouldn't really make sense since his suit isn't a construct. It's pretty clear he's just using the magnetism to manipulate the suit.
Barry said in issue zero that metal reacts strangely implying he can't control his suit and he also implies he can make a suit when talking to Wally saying "I forget we could do that" and we have seen pre 52 Barry make a costume so we know he could make one before. Also we have seen Wally use the ring as a focus for the speed force suit so Barry may be doing the same.
Also, I think you should stop putting that Barry has moved at lightspeed to exit the SF and Time Travel, despite what the rules were pre flashpoint. We know this wasn't the case when he time traveled, because he used Daniel's power to do so, and Daniel's power is not speed based, but time based instead. Also there is no proof that you have to move at light speed to exit the Speed Force. All we know is that you need a lightning rod. That's it. The only time a speedster has been stated to move at lightspeed was when Wally entered the Speed Force.
Barry made the choice to run into the speed force before so he still ran faster than light then and it wasn't the treadmill's momentum that carried him as Elias says "what are you doing" upon seeing Barry intently running into the sf not having the momentum of the treadmill carry him. So even if exiting the sf isn't faster than light he has still ran in using his own power before moving faster than light.
Sorry maybe I was unclear I am talking about the time with the treadmill but it was Barry who ran in at light speed the treadmill didn't carry him Elias sees Barry run in of his own accord not be carried that's why he asked what he was doing.
Yes, he ran at light speed, but because of the treadmill's momentum. The reason Elias asked what he was doing was because he told him to stop before he goes that fast. It's clearly stated that this was because of the treadmill.
Barry says "my only shot of finding them is creating another wormhole and running into it" he ran that fast by himself, he said he had to make a wormhole and run in he didn't use the treadmills momentume. The only reason he even used the treadmill was to give power to the city.
the wormholes are caused when he approaches light speed, and it's already been stated that he can approach light speed on his page. The wormholes are not the same as what wally did to enter the Speed Force. What he did was become energy by moving past light speed, then entering the Speed Force.
The rule to enter the sf is to run FTL so logically Barry should have had to run faster to enter. And in issue 6,7 it says when Barry approaches the speed of light he is running at 80% and when he opens the wormhole he was running at 100% so he still ran at the speed of light at least.
Okay but still in issue 6 and 7 it says when Barry approaches light speed he is running at 80% Elias says this when fighting captain cold he opens a wormhole at 100% so he was running at speed of light then so even if the treadmill helped (which I don't think it did but that's a difference of opinions) he still has run at at least light speed before.
not necessarily speedsters have gone faster than light before without going in the speed force. If Barry had a lightning rode (Iris, his friends, dad) he would not enter the speed force. And to evacuate that many people he would have to go faster than light.
like with the wally west nuke thing the comic says "at a hairs breath short of the speed of light" but the wiki says he has to move 13 trillion times the speed of light. even though he stated he is moving slower than light logically he would have to be moving faster than light. Just like you would have to be moving faster than light to evacuate Tokyo in 30 seconds
I don't know man, there's not much evidence to this. It wasn't outright stated and if we add this info, we would just be assuming that you have to move past that speed, which hasn't been backed up by anything solid.
well the wally west feat states he is moving slower than light but the wiki contradicts this so even if its not stated I think its worth adding it could be something like "Barry can evacuate the city of Tokyo (which has a population of 16.32 million) in just thirty seconds- this feat would require him to be moving faster than light". If someone does the calculations to find how fast exactly he would need to go for example 10 times the speed of light (I picked a random number don't know if its accurate) than we can add that to.
Which Wally West feat are you referring to? And unless someone does the calculations to prove he is moving faster than light, we should leave that out. Although I think "Barry was able to evacuate the city of Tokyo (which has a population of 16.32 million) in just thirty seconds." is a good addition in itself to describe his speed. Honestly I don't believe he would have to be moving at the speed of light, let alone several times it to evacuate the city. Someone moving at the speed of light could go all the way around the equator approximately 7.5 times in one second, so I don't think it really adds up.
I was refereeing to the nuke feat for wally. and I think Barry would have to be moving faster than light to evacuate them. though I'm not sure how to calculate the exact speed do you think you could do it or know anyone who could.
Thank you so much for acknowledging my humble little skill category. You're the first user outside myself to add a character.
I'm stoked just to have anyone add it with citation, but if you really want to make me happy, is it possible to also add a brief description of how Max Mercury utilises it? Not necessary I'm just really curious. Thanks again.
Good work on that beta page. That should save us some time.
Now, about the possibility of it becoming public, it should be handled with care. Waiting 2 years until everything in Rebirth is developed is silly and not practical. However, we'd like to have a page with a clear explanation as to how Wally got trapped before he returned. That doesn't mean we need all the answers, but just one simple logical explanation, which so far, DC has failed to deliver. The point of that is to give people a clear idea of what happened to Wally and how he really came to be. So far in the beta page, we are still assuming that Kadabra was entirely responsible for his disappearance, which is not true after the events of The Flash (Volume 5) #9.
That said, I do believe that the longer we should wait is until the end of this year and no more. If by then, we're still in the dark about this, then we proceed with the moving anyway.
Once again, good job on that page. It shall be very useful.
Thanks! Waiting until the end of the year seems fair, hopefully we will get more explanation by then, but isn't Kadabra responsible? I thought in Flash #9, Wally distinguished that Kadabra erased him, but didn't erase the ten years? Wouldn't that confirm he's responsible, or am I misunderstanding what you were saying?
He's responsible for erasing Wally's memories from everyone's minds, because he wanted Wally to be forgotten so he couldn't return. However, he did not force Wally into the speed force; someone/something else did and Kadabra took advantage of that fact. And, yes he also did not erase the decade from the DC universe.
Hey, you were right... mostly. I was told to read Titans 3 and it turns out Kadabra is in fact responsible for Wally's disappearance. I was confused because of the Rebirth Special. There, it says that Wally was trapped in the speed force, while the Titans storyline says that it was the time stream.
Anyways, despite that contradiction, we seem to have an answer for that at least.
I would say it was the Speed Force because that's what Wally said and we saw him trying to escape it in the Rebirth special. I think Kadabra may have just said that either as an easier way to get his point across without trying explaining to Linda what the Speed Force is, or he isn't aware of the Speed Force.
I haven't read it yet. I'll get it this weekend. After that we need to move the current prime earth page and include the initial of the middle name so it changes into Wally R. West (Prime Earth). After that page is moved, then we can create the page for the titans Wally. I'll discuss it with the other admins and I'll tell you when everything is ready. It should be ready by next week.
On the same subject, will a bot also be used on the appearances/images for Rebirth Wally that link to Flash (Wally West), when they should be linking to the new Wallace West (Prime Earth)? If not, should I start on fixing this? It's not too much that must be changed.
All those appearances should be changed manually. However, since Wallace West (Prime Earth) is not yet cleared, it would be wrong to start now. The moment that page is moved and the link is clear, then we're good to go. Normally, it takes between a couple of days to a week before a bot moves a page. Let's see how it goes.
I suppose they saw the red-link in the disambig and copied the content from the existing page. It should be fine. I already used your page to replace the previous content. You can now proceed to change all the links you mentioned before.
No, thats only for New Earth Wally. I believe we should better start a new sequence. If the new picture has Wally in his Flash costume, upload it as "Flash Wallace West Prime Earth 001". This will help differentiate it from Kid Flash.
Also, in my opinion, we don't really need pages for comics that haven"t yet been pubished. I wouldn't create a page for a comic more than a few days in advance. We're a database, not a PR firm. We don't need pages for everything DC solicits three months in advance.
Sorry for the rant, but it's a pet peeve.
