Merger

I want to raise discussion on the possibility of merging Buddy Blank (Earth-AD) into Buddy Blank (New Earth). It doesn't really make sense to divide the character between Pre-Crisis and Post-Crisis designations, because until Countdown all of his Post-Crisis appearances use the original version. Pretty much nothing is compatible with the Countdown version, and it seems silly to make that the main character page. My proposal is to have them merged into one all-inclusive Buddy page that contains information on both versions of the character. I realize this might be controversial with Earth-AD, but I think it would be for the best. I would be willing to do all the work myself.

Wasn't Countdown ruled non-canon? Or was that Trinity? Anyway, yeah, merge. --Tupka217 (talk|wall) 12:02, April 22, 2012 (UTC)
I think either way we go could lead to some confusion while searching but Billy's idea sounds the best. If he is willing to do the work on it, he can write it up so that it makes sense. The only problem outside of writing it up might be that other people see the all-inclusive page and decide there are other characters who should be that way and try it themselves.

I agree that it should be merged too as it's the best solution but as for the other users thinking that this would be a trend we could either make OMAC specific templates that signify it's unique status or we can point to other characters or teams that have had similar situations such as the Green Lantern Corps within the New 52 and Phantom Stranger who continued his stories through CoiE.
