I tried to color it for you, but I don't know if I'm happy with the results.  Check it out:

The only problem I had was that I made an error in the entry name itself...I wrote "Joe meach" with a lower-case "M."  I couldn't find any way to correct it, though I see now that it's corrected itself...or perhaps Rao did it.  Anyway, just for future reference, is there a way to fix an entry name when we goof it up?

That was me, I fixed it.  I moved the page from "Joe meach" to "Joe Meach."    Moving a page seems to be one of the special powers reserved for the site administrator.

Good question. I've been trying to figure that one out myself. By the way, Klar, would you mind terribly if I expanded on your Titano write-up? I'm planning on writing up an entry for the Atomic Skull, and since I have to cross-reference it with Titano anyway, I thought I might add to it.

Another suggestion for categories comes to mind. Maybe we should include an Objects category that would cover such things as the Phantom Zone Projector, Jimmy Olsen's signal watch, the ever-popular Supermobile and (of course) the various forms of kryptonite.

And while on the subject of Categories, I've been looking through them and I found that some of them have become sort of redundant. For example, we have a general category for Locations, yet we also have a "Geographic Locations" category, a "Planets" category, a "Dimensional Realms" category, and a category for Krypton itself. In my humble opinion, these should all come under the "Locations" category. That's how the official Star Wars site's databank handles it. We also have a "Villains" category and a "Criminals" category. Since these two are pretty much interchangeable, why not just have a "Villains" category and just leave it at that? The same thing goes for the "Aliases" and "Superman's Aliases" categories. These two can just be amalgamated into a simple "Aliases" category. These might make things a little less confusing to visitors.

Any thoughts?[/url]

Bill, go for it.  I do quick overviews as to jump start categories.  Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane are nothing but pics thus far...

Thought the Atomic Skull came much later (in the post reboot era but maybe that's another Atomic Skull) and since I stopped reading comics for the most part in the mid 70s there's plenty I dont know about!

Yeah categories - need one for creatures like the Matter Eater Beast and The Thing from 400,000 AD. Teleptahic hounds from Kandor would be animals, kryptonian me thinks.

What the heck were the names of those critters from Krypton with big TV sets on their heads which revealled what they were thinking?

How about 'Gadgets' for the PZ projector, signal watch, and Supermobile?  The various kryptonites could maybe get a 'Kryptonite' category, or just be part of one entry.

I don't know.  I don't think some two-bit inept mugger or jewel thief (a "criminal") from the 1950s is really in the same category as someone like, say, Brainiac or Mongul (a "super-villain").  If Criminals and Villains are combined, maybe there should be different name, something more general, for the category?

Klar, do you mind if I expand (or even replace) some of your entries with the material from Fleisher's book?
