I see a lot of people spelling "Hydra" with all caps. Hydra is not an acronym. It's named for the mythological sea creature (cut off one head, two will grow in its place). The official Marvel page spells it as a word, not in all caps.

http://marvel.com/universe/Hydra

Anyone who feels like doing a mass cleanup, have at it, I guess. Unless I'm mistaken.

It appears that in the MCU, HYDRA is indeed spelled with all capitals. Wikipedia spells it with just the "H" capitalized; but the MCU wiki, general Marvel wiki, and most sources I can find spell it "HYDRA".

You're right that it's not an acronym though.

None of those sources are official though, are they? Just asking in general, not trying to question your evidence.

No, they're not, but neither is the Marvel Universe page, with regards to the MCU.

However, it appears that you are right; there's an Ao S episode titled "Love in the Time of Hydra".

Oh, I thought everything that applied to the Marvel Universe also applies to the MCU, unless otherwise stated. Like, if, for example, a character's birth date is never stated in the MCU, we just assume it's the same as in the comics.

But if something in the MCU contradicts what's in the comics, it's something that's one way in the comics but another way in the MCU. I hope I explained that well.

No, because that doesn't make any sense. For example, there a lot of heroes who don't exist yet in the MCU, because their movies haven't come out. We don't assume they exist unless they actually show up in an MCU-canon medium.

You're right in this case anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

A simple question: Why is Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl) listed in the characters page (MCU Others)? Was she confirmed somewhere?

Thanks!

It seems that troper KINGOFCHEESE added her to the list sometime ago. I do remember seeing a few articles online which rumored that Marvel was working on a New Warriors TV show with Squirrel Girl as one of the main protagonists, but I don't think anything official has been confirmed by anyone within Marvel.

I wanted to replace the current page image with the following, given there's official group art out there with more of the characters thanks to civil war and newer seasons of some of the included shows:

Exact same format as current image, just with more of the characters and some updated art from the current seasons of various shows, and extra dr strange image now that ant-man and black panther are in the top half. Does anyone have any issue with this? Is it worth a larger discussion?

Image changes are handled on the Image Pickin' subforum, not on Discussion pages. You're more likely to get a response that way, at that.

Also, if you see a mod message saying not to change an image, I really wouldn't advise removing the message and changing the image anyway...

Subforum is broken due to upgrades.

Otherwise that's completely fair, my apologies.

Could Commuting on a Bus possibly be applied to the Hulk/Bruce Banner in the MCU? It seems to fit, though the trope page doesn't even seem to have a film examples section. Hulk was initially one of the main 4 Avengers in the MCU, with his own movie alongside Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America. Now each of them is at or on their way to their third movie while Hulk just shows up for the main Avengers films.

I'd imagine there aren't film examples on the page because there aren't a lot of film franchises long enough or with enough characters for the trope to apply. I think you could make a case for this example though.

I suggest we use Spider Man 2017 with a custom title of Spider-Man for the future film if no alternate title is used

I think so as well.

We need to decide since it keeps getting edited back and forth ''Series/{{Agents of SHIELD}}'' or ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''?

The latter. The former is simply unnecessary waste of markup space.

Should Guardians of the Galaxy REALLY be counted as a Bittersweet Ending? It's not like Groot's death stuck, and while a large number of the Nova Corps did die the film doesn't really treat its ending as anything other than happy. Even Thanos and Nebula still being out there makes it seem like more of a happy ending with a sequel hook.

Methinks you'll have more success when asking in one of the media threads in the forums.

So, I know that on the one hand, if someone is looking for fanfic involving specific characters it might be simpler to just go to the rec page for their movies, but doesn't it seem like it might be better organized in general to consolidate all of the recs onto one page, with different folders for different characters/movies/whatever, rather than checking four different pages for fanfic recs because there are so few on any given page, or because something might have been recc'd on multiple pages, or because someone is unsure of the correct page to rec something?

If, for example, someone were looking for Loki fic, they'd have four different pages to search (Thor, Thor 2, The Avengers and the MCU main page) and comparatively little actual content per page, because they're all split up. It gets even worse if you're looking for stuff involving Coulson or Tony Stark.

I'm just wondering if it wouldn't be easier to get rid of the individual movies' fanfic rec pages and group all of the existing recommendations on the MCU rec page. What does everyone else think?

Any thoughts on when we should make new pages for the Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and the SHIELD TV show?

Well, Work Pages Are A Free Launch, so I say at once.

Okay, I really have to ask. . . should the *title* of an upcoming movie be spoilered, ever?

Nope.
