Expand Expy to cover characters who appear in other people's work who are not Captain Ersatzes. Wicks that misuse it for Captain Ersatz would need to be hunted down and fixed.
Make Expy the supertrope, and move the current idea of Expy to a new subtrope. Make Captain Ersatz a subtrope, as well.
Launch the third trope that covers the ground between the two and fix all the wicks (can I say ouch?). See if misuse continues at the same rate afterward.
Merge Expy and Captain Ersatz, and have done with it. All uses would be correct and an automated rename could (maybe) be done
Rename Expy. This could be done in conjunction with any of the above.
