Post mid-season 2 image?

Before I go on, I may as well ask so it's recorded somewhere: why use a 1990s Trickster image when he's clearly being the Trickster now? I get that's what this canon's version supposedly wore before being incarcerated, but even then some characters (like Mark Mardon) have "civilian/(insert nickname)" photos and they're wearing the exact same clothes. Just something I'd bring up for discussion.

And secondly, my main topic, since it's been over a month, so I suppose it wouldn't hurt to propose a new image(s) for the character's infobox. In addition, I'll add brief description of why I think they're potentially ok images to use...

  1. Prison Screenshot 1 - Shows what the Trickster's been doing after Flash defeated him. Fits the character as well as show that Trickster is (possibly) one of the more deadly enemies, given his obsession and the wall-full of drawings depicting the Flash's demise.
  2. Prison Screenshot 2 - Same thing, but adding Trickster doing his own Flash-themed arts and crafts.
  3. Lair Screenshot 1 - Trickster after Weather Wizard mentioning his "flair". Plus, with a grin, he shows that he evidently loves his job at wanting chaos.
  4. Lair Screenshot 2 - Shows that Trickster has some standing with the two Rogues. Plus, another grin.
  5. TV Screenshot - Yes, the "You wanna roast chestnuts?" moment in the previews, one I couldn't leave out. Seemed appropriate to include it on the list, though I'm sure it's not the best candidate.

Before anyone points it out, yes, I purposely used images where Mark Hamill did his Joker-esque smile. But I hope any of these seem suitable or maybe improvements can be made? Just for one's consideration, and apologies if this is the wrong way of doing things. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 05:50, January 17, 2016 (UTC)

There's really no point in an aeimage if it's barely a different look of the character.User:TimeShade/sig 06:02, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry but that makes no sense. It's like saying why update the images of Barry Allen, Oliver Queen, etc when they look the same as they do in their Season 1 appearances. Or, if you need a villain example, Slade Wilson, whose image is not from a Season 2 episode (would say Season 1, but he didn't have an eye-patch then). -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 15:29, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
Not what I'm saying at all. If you want, you can discuss for his civilian image but reason why some have similar attire on both images, is because their AE image, they demonstrate their powers.User:TimeShade/sig 18:14, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
That's actually what I meant for this discussion to be about. Any of these 5 images as potential candidates to update the Civilian image. Didn't recall if this Wiki updated their images upfront or if they had a voting system; I assumed the latter(?) -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 20:43, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
Ah, my bad. We don't have a voting system for infobox images like some wikis.User:TimeShade/sig 22:06, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
For the first topic; while it's ultimately up to the admins' to decide, I'd still like to contribute my thoughts on the matter since it's an open discussion. I actually also have the same problem but I just didn't bother to raise questions about it since I saw the image was selected by an admin =P. I thought it was odd to use an although-concidered-canon-but-def.-aged image to showcase the Trickster at his "prime" (aka 10 years ago in-universe), rather than his present-self; note that, when he first got out of jail and teamed up with his son, after they revealed themselves (then-disguised-as-waiters), his hair being more disheveled, he still referred himself as the Trickster, so technically, that could have also been seen as a proper representation of the Trickster identity, a present one no less, just that it does not have the impact the 10-years-old-with-costume has.
Tbh, that image might not even be needed in the infobox since it represents him a long time ago and his current self already represents both pretty much. User:TimeShade/sig 22:06, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
On that note, I just want to make sure, is "no point in an aeimage if it's barely a different look" also the reason why Shawna Baez and Lisa Snart don't have the alt. image even though they do have code names?
For the second and main topic, if there is a vote, I'd vote for the second one (him raising the lightning bolt cutouts) cuz I actually had that in mind myself bahaha. Sammm✦✧(talk) 21:39, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
Second one. -- Thepsychofroggy, 4:52 PM, January 17th 2016

Ok, so as TimeShade said, there is no voting system. So it would seem (hypothetically) I could've posted an image in the first place. Nevertheless, I'll go with using this image as that's the one being picked so far...but rather have an OK before doing anything rash. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 15:06, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

The Flash Wrist Bomb

Is no one going to mention how the bomb on flash wrist by The Trickster is similar to the one used in the dc animated movie Justice League: Doom? And put this info on the behind the scenes section of The Trickster?CarverSindile (talk) 23:04, November 3, 2016 (UTC)
