What characters can and cannot be added to the database. (open discussion)
Created by Galactus, 2 y 1 mo 24 d ago.
There is at least one rule in place; No real world religion and politics on this website. This includes characters and forum topics, etc.
Now, where should the line be drawn when it comes to religious and political characters making an appearance in fiction?
If they are completely fictional, I think we can all agree that they can be added. What about characters that also exist in the real world?
This is an open discussion, but please keep it nice and respectful.

(Not religious myself, just amazed)
Comic politics however if different and great. Things like pro/anti registration or is the Joker really insane are excellent political discussions because its about fiction.
I was wondering if I could add all the Asura's Wrath characters and deities. There are quite a few but I feel they stack up well against most characters.
Shrek is already in this website : 512
how about Shrek (Meme Culture): infinite
There is Shaggy in here: 0
Shaggy (Meme Culture) : 558 Billion
Paul Blart is already here: 0
Paul Blart (Meme Culture) : 420 Billion
It's maybe more of a question if self-published characters should be in the db.
Thor. This isn't really in question.
Little Krishna. This seems different, but it's really not. The only difference is a lot more people believe in Krishna
Jesus (616) And the same argument here
Comic versions of real life people can be added, like Eminem (616)
But what about Obama (616)? Or any president? Or if we take a darker turn, Hitler (616)?
Character by character, what do people think?
Real world version shouldn't be added anyway, with some exceptions that might be fun in a battle, like; Wrestlers, Boxers, etc.
Maybe my other comment made it confusing.
We agree on the subject 😉

Who decides what characters are excluded to use in a battle and on what ground?
If that's the case, than any fictional character (even if it's modeled off of something else) can be added?
Is there any line drawn after that? Most US presidents are canon, and so are many political figures (like say, Hitler). Should those be added?
I don't see why Jesus (the Marvel version) wouldn't be added, since it's the Marvel version of Jesus, not the 'real' Jesus.
That being said; I wouldn't mind keeping him out (and other religious/political characters that ALSO exist in the real world), just to prevent situations like this.
But where does that end? Do we delete all Lucifer characters too? And Thor?
Why would some get a special treatment over others? Should we respect one religion more than others and thus delete their God(s)?
I'm open for discussion about this and even open for deleting certain characters, but not if it's done this way. Then you loose all your credit and I'll ignore your requests.
If characters like Jesus (who's canon in 616) can't be added to the site, why can other gods? I'm confused on what characters can and can't be added to the site. What about real people who have comic book version? Yahweh can, but jesus can't. Eminem can, but Obama can't. What are the rules?
