Government or AWI

I think that it should be noted that this could have been a government bust instead of an AWI one. (This is not likely, but still there is no conformation on this man's position.)

  • I'd be hesitant to call it a government bust for two reasons. First, there were not FBI, CIA, CDC, or any other markings on the van, uniforms, etc. That's pretty atypical of the government. Second, there's a lot of unknowns about the situation -- like what was it that actually led Ted to Billings, or what made Ted believe that this guy was somehow linked to Pharmatech Industrial Building? We have to use a bit of faith that Ted was right in his linking the two, in which case this guy would be somehow linked the pneumatic syringe, and is, ipso facto, linked to the AWI. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:48, 26 February 2007 (EST)

Who is this guy?!

Does anybody else think this guy looks like Thompson? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:04, 27 February 2007 (EST)

  • Yeah, thats the first thing I thought when I saw the picture (before seeing this question even) --Frantik (Talk) 08:22, 27 February 2007 (EST)
    • It's mostly the lips and the eyes, but even his facial structure is so similar. I wonder if they'll ever reveal this is Thompson or not... — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:55, 27 February 2007 (EST)
    • He looks a lot like Thompson. --Xmuskrat 16:18, 27 February 2007 (EST)

Name Change

Now that he's gone from "AWI leader" to "The Company leader," it sounds very much more like he is the Big Cheese, and not just a leader. I think it might be better to call him either "Company leader" or "The Company official". Any other suggestions? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:11, 28 February 2007 (EST)

  • I suggest "Thompson" ;) or perhaps assistant to the regional superhero? I dunno.. though anything with leader does make it seem like he's the head honcho --Frantik (Talk) 07:14, 28 February 2007 (EST)
  • Something else for certain, this name implies that he is the head of the whole company, and there's nothing to prove that, so I think a name change should occur--Koruzarius 22:00, 13 March 2007 (EST)
    • I agree Heroe 20:28, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
  • I think "A Company leader" would be fine. He is definitely a leader, yet "A" doesn't confuse him with being "The" leader. For this same reason, I don't think "The Company official" is the best choice--though better than it is now, it still assumes he is the main official. (I also think "A Company official" would be fine.) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:13, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
      • I think either would be a little weird. We don't generally use articles on character's names (Engineer instead of The Engineer, for example), so 'A company leader' would be really awkward (and would need much piping in sentences). The "the" in this case is attached to The Company, not to the man.--Hardvice (talk) 23:59, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
        • How about something like "Company search team leader" or something similar? Heroe 00:05, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
        • Right, that's the whole point, that "The" is attached to the Company ... but it's misleading. It's a perfectly descriptive title, but can give the impression that he's the leader of The Company, rather than a leader of The Company. I don't have another suggestion. Maybe drop the article altogether and just put Company leader? ... (Or I still say "Thompson" is the best choice.) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:45, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
          • Email Greg Beeman and say "So this dude in the comic is supposed to be Eric Roberts amirite?" I actually kind of like "Company field leader" or "Company search team leader". More descriptive, less confusing.--Hardvice (talk) 00:52, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
        • Ted just calls him the "man in charge". Well, that's helpful. Or not.--Hardvice (talk) 00:54, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
          • Tim Sale is my domain, you've got Beeman. :) Yeah, let's just go with "Company field leader" and be done with it. I want more Gumby. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:56, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
            • Don't encourage me. I'm fighting down the temptation to add a "Gumbyspotting" Fan Creation article.--Hardvice (talk) 00:58, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
              • Oh, I'm the wrong person to discourage that, I'm completely for it. If we can have a page about a fictional relationship between two fictional characters and rack up 143 page edits, we can certainly have a Gumby page! — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:02, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
              • Go for it. It sounds like people would get a laugh out of it. I know I did. :) As for the name "Company field leader" sounds good to me, too. (Admin 01:05, 15 March 2007 (EDT))

Heroes Interactive (The Hard Part)

  • During Heroes Interactive for the episode The Hard Part, one of the question was Thompson re-captured Ted Sprague with ... the correct anwser was Liquid concrete ... As this is, to my knowledge the only time where liquid concrete is mentioned, that would make the Company field leader Thompson ... I unfortunately missed the opportunity to grab a screenshot of the question, but hopefully someone else saw it and can validate what I am saying :)--LeoChris 21:15, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
    • That's good enough for me -- I say combine the articles. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:27, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

History merge

Sorry to post here, but this concerns the redirect and not the article on Thompson.

This page needs to be properly merged (delete Thompson, move this there, then restore Thompson and rollback) in order to attribute the HDYSAEM sections on Thompson's page with this page's authors. Regardless of the licensing, that just seems like the right thing to do.--Tim Thomason 20:02, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

  • We can merge this discussion history with the discussion history at Talk:Thompson if needed, but it seems kind of pointless. There are no open discussions on this page (save this thread), so this page serves as an archive of previous discussions. As the link above says, any new discussions should be posted on Talk:Thompson. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:51, 6 June 2007 (EDT)
