Infobox comics character instructions

{{Infobox comics character}} is currently being revamped. These instructions may be slightly out of date.

The infobox should use {{infobox comics character}} as shown below. Copy and paste the following text at the beginning of the comic book character's article:

{{Infobox comics character
<!--Wikipedia:WikiProject Comics-->
| character_name = 
| image          = <!-- filename format only -->
| imagesize      = <!-- default 250 -->
| caption        = 
| alt            = 
| publisher      = 
| debut          = 
| first_series   = 
| first_episode  = 
| first_comic    = 
| creators       = 
| voiced_by      = 
| based_on       = 
| alter_ego      = *
| full_name      =
| species        = <!-- optional -->
| homeworld      = <!-- optional -->
| alliances      = <!-- optional -->
| partners       = <!-- optional -->
| supports       = <!-- optional -->
| aliases        = <!-- optional -->
| powers         = 
| cat            = 
| subcat         = 
| hero           = 
| villain        = 
| sortkey        = {{subst:PAGENAME}}
| addcharcat#    = 
}}

*- Previously titled "real_name"

  • Parameter notes:
    • Do not delete a parameter - leave the field blank if there is nothing to enter.
    • The image field is setup use the file name only and without braces. For example: image= example.jpg
    • The imagesize (width) parameter is set up to only accept a numeric value. If left blank or if a string (such as "225px") is entered, the image will default to 250px wide.
      • If you find the image to be too tall, reduce the size below 250px.
      • The parameter is capped at 250. Entering values greater than this will result in the default setting being used.
      • The image will also cap at 450 in height.
    • The caption will appear below the image. Keep it short, but indicate the comic book and issue # if it is from a comic book, in the form Wolverine #17 (typed as ''Wolverine'' #17)
    • Providing the alt parameter keeps in line with Wikipedia:Alternative text for images. It needs to contain the "text alternative" of the image. This is not the same as the caption. It should also be kept short, but needs to be descriptive of the image.
    • For the debut field, provide the first appearance of the character. Example: Incredible Hulk #181.
      • If a character originated in another medium than a comic, use first_series and first_episode for the first appearance (instead of debut), and then first_comic for the first comic appearance, which will be placed below.
    • For multiple creators or powers, separate each with <br />. For example: creators=Stan Lee<br />Jack Kirby
    • Alter ego and Full name are mutually exclusive; the former is for articles where the character has a superhero name, the latter is for characters that go by a shortened version of their given name or a nickname.
    • Alliances include any current or previous team affiliations. Please stick to notable affiliations. Affiliations also works for this parameter but is being phased out.
    • Partners include any current or previous partners. Please stick to notable partnerships. Also, please avoid "employee/employer" relationships.
    • Aliases include any significant alternate names. It should not include nicknames, epithets, or short-lived names.
    • Powers include significant current and previous powers, and other notable abilities. This should be a short list, without description. Keep longer prose for the article text.
    • This template is designed to place the articles into the relevant "<Publisher> <character type>" categories.
      • Entering the appropriate type of character at cat will place the article into that subcategory of characters.. Due to naming conventions for categories, the entry at cat must be lower case. For "superhero" and "supervillain" enter just "super".
      • Subcat must be used to enter a comic book publisher. Entering this without cat will place the article in to "<Publisher> characters" category.
      • Hero and villain are logical functions that work with "cat= super". Each will add the article to the publisher specific "superhero" and "supervillain" categories.
      • Sortkey is required for use with cat. It can be changed for forcing a different sort in the category. This parameter will not recognize a leading space.
      • Additional "<Publisher> <character type>" categories can be added with addcharcat#. Replace "#" with a number (currently the template is set up for 2 additional cats) and list the full category title. Please list the publishers in publication order.
