    Yeah, but the same could be said about Wolverine or Wildchild... Marrina whilst as a Leviathan... Northstar the terrorist... yet they're all considered heroes(or at least AF/X-Factor Wildchild was even after killing people).

    Yeah, I'm gonna go with 'put Alpha Strike under villains', add her to the membership, wait for them to strike and capture them all while they're off work.

    Fair 'nuff.

    But all Heather had to do was take her child, which she could have easily done without melting the heads of two relatives who really weren't doing anything wrong or endangering Claire in any way.

    It may have been mainly written this way for shock-value. If so, it was effective. But not having any real follow-up to it, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Heather was a hero; how does she feel about this act? How does she come to terms with it? Is she a wanted criminal? Does anybody else know what she did? Is she racked with guilt? Leaving us hanging with these questions, knowing full well it could be years before somebody attemtps to answer any of them, is cruel and unusual punishment. Why write it, if you are not going to properly finish it?

    That's my take on things.

    But you're right, other heroes have gone there.

    I imagine the several witnesses who watched it and commented on it at the time do.

    Oh I agree, but the 'villain' tag is a grey area.

    It may have been mainly written this way for shock-value. If so, it was effective.
    It was 100% for shock-value, definitely.

    But not having any real follow-up to it, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Heather was a hero; how does she feel about this act? How does she come to terms with it? Is she a wanted criminal? Does anybody else know what she did? Is she racked with guilt?

    I'd imagine they would have followed it up, but sales didn't give them the chance.

    Another call for updates!

    Anyone fancy taking a character and just filling in a bit more about what they've been up to over the last few years?

    And if anyone would like to separate the Nemesis entry into three individual ones that'd be great.

    Done.

    Still needs work; I'm not certain I divided the abilities correctly, and I didn't know off the top of my head which issue Nem II first appeared in.
    The page which has them all as one person still exists.

    Nems I and II could use character images.

    Oh, and we still haven't made a page for Alpha themselves! Agh! Get on it, Mik!

    Incredible Hulk #279 - I've added new scans; are we going with the new or the old? (There are advantages to each.)

    Alpha Flight 616 -
    Okay, I've added an entry. It's very rough, all information is off the top of my head, and I didn't go into much detail about the team history - I only included enough information to allow for all volumes (including Omega Flight). There are probably character / team links that need looking at (is this Talisman I, II, or III? - that kind of thing).

    There are almost no pictures.

    The former team members are listed in the order I remembered them (oh, and I've got Northstar as a current member - I suspect people will disagree), and are probably not comprehensive. I don't even know what 'associates' is supposed to include.
    And, tbh, I don't know where they're currently headquartered. I put it down as Dept H.

    Please, people, take a look! It's still a draft.

    ~ Mik

    OK I fixed them for you, -K-M-. Turns out the .png file format IS supported by VaultWiki. Please disregard previous bad advice.

    I'm not sure what you did but basically what I did was:
    1. save image on my local c: drive.
    2. click "upload new file"
    3. typed in the file name of the image exactly
    4. inserted the image and resized to FULL size
    5. published the "page" - i put page in quotes because it's an image page that resides on the server, not a text page that is public.
    6. edited the shadow and shilohs pages so the name I typed in step 3 is in the "img" tag.

    Yeah still no go. Getting frustrated, says [h=The following errors occurred with your submission]3[/h]
    • You must attach a file with the same filename as this article's title.


    It was exact and still didn't work. Can you add this image as well for the Happy Clams?



    EDIT:Oh and Chinook II?

    OK done. But what you did seems to be a mismatch between the name of the image page and the inserted filename. When you get the error "
    • You must attach a file with the same filename as this article's title.



    scroll down to the box that says "Title" and change it so it matches the filename
