Savitar

Since Barry was Savitar at one point, wouldn't it make sense to include an image of Savitar on the image tabs? Just wondering WyronX22 (talk) 22:41, May 27, 2019 (UTC)

I would agree with this, Savitar did exist in the present day (same with She-cada) and there is no page for him.Schroeswald (talk) 22:48, May 27, 2019 (UTC)

I actually added it once back in October, but MakeShift undid it.Ninja72 (talk) 11:44, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Honestly, I feel it'd be reasonable for Savitar-Barry to have his own separate page, mostly because he's a character completely separate from Flash-Barry. Sddelano5 (talk) 23:21, June 2, 2019 (UTC)

IIRC He did Once Upon a time, it was merged to fit with how we’ve treated alternate timelines and time remnants before.Schroeswald (talk) 01:43, June 3, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah. I remember that. But, by my opinion, they could have separate pages because they're technically two different characters. Sddelano5 (talk) 02:10, June 3, 2019 (UTC)

Not to revive the discussion, but I learned the admins recently agreed that characters with multiple identities would only have the current one (Earth-2 Laurel's Black Siren pic was removed, because of that), with the exceptions of Mick as Chronos, since due to time travel the identity is still active, and also Hunter Zolomon, since he did not become Black Flash willingly. I think what makes Savitar different from Chronos is that the version of Barry, who became Savitar was erased from existence, which would make the identity inactive.Ninja72 (talk) 07:34, August 14, 2019 (UTC)

I gotta disagree. I feel Savitar is different enough from Barry to warrant his own page as well as keeping the current inforamtion on the current page Lordpkeravrium (talk) 22:19, December 16, 2019 (UTC)

Ok I know I'm very late to the discussion but if character images are based on whether they're active or not, it should be noted that Savitar is essentially in the same situation as Chronos because he's a frequent time traveler as well. (Yes he's erased but he can still appear after that point, see "The Reverse-Flash Returns".) The only difference is that Savitar's activity ended with him being erased while Chronos' ended with him turning back to normal Mick. But they were both still "terminated" in some way. However I don't really care about the image decisions either way, I just wanted to add my 2 cents because I find the topic interesting. Wikifan988 (talk) 08:10, June 3, 2020 (UTC)

What is the final decision on the Savitar debate? I feel it should be separated. I went to the category "Mythology" and saw Barry Allen, only to realize that "Savitar" is a mythological god. But I feel that it would have been more direct if Savitar was in the category instead of Barry. Bottom line: what was the final decision and should this section be closed? Bratpack2 (talk) 22:50, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

This section was not even about the separation, it was about whether he should have the image in the infobox or not. But, yeah, they have decided to split it again after that Zari situation on Legends happened and are planning to do so.Ninja72 (talk) 22:59, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Updating information

Barry is one of the 7 survivors of the original multiverse. Can admins update his status and all the other paragons whose pages are locked (if any). (Jman321 (talk) 07:46, January 18, 2020 (UTC))

And if Barry is one of the characters who is allowed their Earth-1 pages to continue post-Crisis without an Earth-Prime page, can we remove "(Earth-1)" from his name? I think the Barry who's a main hero of the Arrowverse that became a paragon that transcends from Earth-1 to Earth-Prime should be THE "Barry Allen" that doesn't need to disambiguate, while the disambiguation page should be renamed "Barry Allen (disambiguation)."


About Earth Prime

Should we say that Barry's home universe is currently earth prime without changing the title since he technically is still the earth one incarnation while still living on earth prime? Lordpkeravrium (talk) 20:56, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

I think we should change the title to just plain Barry Allen and rename the disambiguation page to Barry Allen (disambiguation) because this is the most important version of Barry in the Arrowverse as the main protagonist of the first direct spinoff of Arrow, and his show has way more episodes than the 90's Flash. SeanWheeler (talk) 06:36, January 28, 2020 (UTC)
I agree with that, but they said that since they are both the main characters of their own shows both should have parenthesis.Ninja72 (talk) 14:31, February 9, 2020 (UTC)
So this guy should have his Earth designation just because of one season from the nineties? Iris West was listed in the 90's main cast but typing her name alone redirects to the Iris West-Allen of Earth-1. SeanWheeler (talk) 23:00, February 12, 2020 (UTC)
That is a little bit different, since that Iris was in only one episode and never appeared again.Ninja72 (talk) 23:04, February 12, 2020 (UTC)
Well, Earth-1 Barry is on his sixth season while Earth-90 Barry ended after one. Earth-1 Barry has made many appearances on Arrow and brought Supergirl's Earth-38 into the Arrowverse, and was mentioned across all shows. Earth-90 Barry was just there for Elseworlds and Crisis on Infinite Earths and a small cameo in Welcome to Earth-2. Earth-1 Barry was a paragon who's now a part of Earth-Prime. Earth-90 Barry died as an expendable double. We all know which Barry is THE Barry Allen. SeanWheeler (talk) 18:47, February 13, 2020 (UTC)
Like I said, I agree, but it was their decision.Ninja72 (talk) 18:54, February 13, 2020 (UTC)

Barry Paragon of Love

Barry as The Paragon of Love should be included in character template under Codenames--MarkMcG978 (talk) 22:14, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

This page should be called Barry Allen, not Barry Allen (Earth-1)

Earth-1 Barry is easily the most referenced and thought-about version of Barry Allen. Sure 90's Barry is also the star of his own show but that show went on for only one season and was 20 years ago, and he is dead now. Basically, the vast majority of people on the online and on this wiki who would end up on Barry Allen's page would be looking for Earth-1 Barry Allen. Also as you can see on this very talk page there are already 2 other people who are thinking this exact same thing. Also I made a poll here and so far the majority of people agree the page should just be Barry Allen.

The worst thing that could happen if Earth-1 Barry's page was called Barry Allen is that someone would arrive on it looking for another Barry and then get there by clicking the hypothetical "for other uses, see Barry Allen (disambiguation)" that would be at the top of the page. I think having this happen sometimes is definitely worth how it would be easier and simpler to type [[Barry Allen]] instead of [[Barry Allen (Earth-1)|Barry Allen]] every time when linking to this page. Wikifan988 (talk) 23:46, June 3, 2020 (UTC)

I agree. This is the Barry Allen that's the star of the Arrowverse. Earth-90 Barry was only retroactively included in the Arrowverse multiverse with Elseworlds (or Welcome to Earth-2 if you count freeze-frame cameos), and Crisis on Infinite Earths showed that just about everything DC made is connected to the Arrowverse multiverse. Not to mention Earth-1 Barry has made 166 appearances while Earth-90 Barry has only made 29 appearances. And other Earth-1 characters that made more appearances than their alternate Earth counterparts didn't need (Earth-1) in their titles. SeanWheeler (talk) 04:40, June 6, 2020 (UTC)
