I've just added an entry for the Zoo Crew (of Capt. Carrot fame). I figured it'd be worth adding given the big role Superman plays in the team's origin/first adventure (though since "New Teen Titans" and the Zoo Crew series itself aren't on the "official" list of canonical sources, I wasn't sure about adding it at first...):

Unless, you can find at least one appearance in any of the canonical sources, it has to be removed.

I disagree with the entry for the following reasons:

1. I have no problem with non-canonical references being included (spelled out in full) if the character later appeared in canonical works.

2. If we allow references to  non-canonical stories, why not let in references to all DC, including Justice League etc. Tons of Justice League is referenced in Superman stories. I still think Black Lightning was a mistake, based on preferences not on guidelines.

3. There are hundreds of 70s and 80s canonical stories not included in Supermanica. I keep thinking that the Bronze Age fans could start on those rather than favorite DC comics from the time period. I don't even like the Bronze Age but I've been trying to enter the stories.

I still think that Supermanica has many hundreds of references to go before entries based on non-canonical sources should be included.

This entry is very well done, and the material it covers seems to be a part of Superman's extensive story.

I think it makes sense to keep it.

Well, you're the boss...

But i still disagree, I could write very well done entries for Kanjor Ro or Starro and Superman met them both and both are referred to in stories but they aren't canonical.

It is well written, so if it is to stay then this page needs to be edited:

Like I said, I wasn't sure if this entry was appropriate or not (there's a "Mary Marvel of Earth-S" entry that doesn't refer to any of the listed canonical sources either); the Zoo Crew characters didn't show up in any of the Superman-related titles proper pre-Crisis, so I'll understand if anyone wants to take the entry down...

I like the entry, to me it just seems like the canonical sources are getting expanded too much.

There was a Muhammed Ali entry last year that was OK but it didn't stay.

I guess I'm just a big rules person, maybe I need to take a break from Supermanica.  Wink
