Articles

Articles should have the following elements:

  • The first appearance of the articles title within the text should be in bold type.
  • Words that are themselves titles of additional articles should be linked only on their first occurrence in the article.
Internal links add to the cohesion and utility of DC Animated Movie Universe Wiki by allowing readers to deepen their understanding of a topic by conveniently accessing other articles. These links should be included where it is most likely that readers might want to use them; for example, in article leads, the beginnings of new sections, table cells, and image captions.

Character Articles

Character Template

  • The Infobox should only contain canon information, i.e., information stated or seen on-screen, or confirmed off-screen.
  • Unknown information (real names, relatives, etc.) should be omitted if not confirmed in one of the ways stated above.

Article Body

  • The first instance of a character's civilian name as well as the first instance of their superhero(s) should be in bold type.

Sections

A character article should contain the following sections in order:

  • A brief summary or so, summarizing who or what the article is about. This section should come before any section headings. i.e.,
