Portal/template placement

Shouldn't this ability only be in the Heroes Evolutions portal and not the episodes portal?--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:43, 20 November 2008 (EST)

  • But, when magnetism only appeared in Heroes Evolution, we put it on Abilities portal.--Henryp
    • Ah, you're correct. I see we put it on both portals then as well. Magnetism was an Evolutions ability first, then it was a Graphic Novel ability, and finally an Episode ability. Good example. I've changed this ability to use the Evolutions template, though, since it's primarily an Evolutions ability.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:28, 20 November 2008 (EST)
      • Though it is a power related to evolutions, it doesn't really need to be directly linked on the Evolutions template, since there are already 3 iStory-related links that can lead to it, and it doesn't really stand on its own. It's also the only power on the template right now. --V2Blast 21:58, 3 December 2008 (EST)


is this the best the people could come up with? Primal Rage? He induces Primal Rage, it isn't his Primal Rage. So shouldn't it at least be Primal Rage Inducing? or how about Ferity Inducing, or Mental Reversion, or at least add the "Inducing" part to the name of the ability.--Shadowulf1 (talk) 22:43, 1 December 2008 (EST)

  • I guess the writers could have been clarified the name better, but overall it's a good name, imho. PS: I added your sig for you, Shadowulf. Please remember to add it to future comments.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:25, 3 December 2008 (EST)
  • I don't really like it either but we should let it be. For the moment at least Titan3510 12:30, 7 December 2008 (EST)

Request to change image

  • Could we change the main image for the ability? The one from the graphic novel is more appropriate given the nature fo the ability while the one from the interactive game was just a little plain. Horrorman 10:52 25 December, 2008 (EST)
    • Sorry, I didn't see your question before, but the graphic novel images don't really show the abilities function any better than the live-action video photo from the iStory, and live-action photos normally trump drawings.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:00, 30 December 2008 (EST)
      • Was just coming to ask this. We don't know the actor in the real image (although he looks slightly like Francis Capra), and I'm not big on iStory, but have we even found out if that specific person is Ricardo Silva? -- Tristan0709 talk 02:49, 21 March 2009 (EDT)

Abilities Portal

Shouldn't this go into the Graphic Novel Abilities Portal? It has been used in the Graphic Novels ability. --Scorvi12 23:45, 14 April 2009 (EDT)

  • The issue is when an ability is seen in the graphic novels as well as the Evolutions content, which do you put it in? This issue is being discussed at Talk:Portal:Abilities#Powers from iStories. Personally, I prefer to see live action content take precedence over illustrated content (meaning this ability would be classified as an evolutions ability). However, I don't have a real strong preference one way or another. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:55, 14 April 2009 (EDT)
    • I think it should stay as it now is, as an Evolutions' ability, for that reason. Live-action Evolutions content has always been above graphic novel content in precedence.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:05, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

Can someone...

...please tell me where I can find the heroes evolutions videos of ricardo in level 5? Oh and the one of the german's magnetism that is mentioned above. Thankyou. --mc_hammark 17:47, 29 August 2009 (EDT)

  • The video of Ricardo can be found here. The German's magnetism was never shown in a video, but was seen in a few pictures, which can be seen here and here. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:54, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
