I might be way off here Jamie, but that entry was originaly published in Marvel's X-Men: the 198 Files. Check it out for yourself -- IRISH 01:09, 15 March 2006 (EST)


It was taken from the X-Men: The 198 Files entry that I wrote. --ComiX-Fan 01:27, 15 March 2006 (EST)


Certainly, it was my mistake then. I apologize. I have seen other works here taken from Wikipeia, et al. and just wanted to make sure everything was kosher. Eric, I had not recalled that was from 198 files... I know this is your work as well, but to maintain the highest level of integrity possible, shouldn't it be quoted as being taken from MXM: 198 files? Once your work is published, it is "Marvel's" work, only written by you. I think the Marvel admin team should make a citation policy, from which we could all agree to properly attribute works. Plus, this will make it MUCH easier to do fact-checking. :)
