Who determines these powers?

I mean, Doctor Doom has the power of Radiation and Electricity Control? I don't ever remember that.

Also, Doom is listed as having a "7 Intellect", apparently thus making him omniscient. Well, Doom is DAMN smart, but omniscient?

Doom is a strange character when it comes to powers, He is ethier a great scientist or a Master of dark arts or both, It really depends on the writer and universe, In some stories he has out the electrcity of his suit, But the radiation one is new to me!

Doom is smarter than reed reed is said to be the smartest man alive. doom proved to be smarter many times. Prime example capturing Odin and so on... stealing the Silver surfers powers could be the point where he WAS omniscient

Someone has put radiation on all the Fantastic Four too, perhaps they believe that's how they got their powers. Same as when a while ago someone put Genetic Manipulation on nearly all mutants. Noobs.

Alright, then is there a way to remove this? Doom and his "powers" have nothing to do with Radiation.

While I can see this with the Fantastic Four, they don't have any control over radiation itself. They don't emit it, they don't control it.

When someone goes to look up a character, they don't want to see a list of fifty different powers - they just want the relevant ones. EVERYONE has Unarmed Combat, but I think we all agree that this "power" should only be listed with individuals who have shown to have some sort of skill or natural ability in it. Wolverine, yes, Franklin Richards, no.

I think the radiation has to do with his nuclear-powered suit

Really? I didn't actually know that all the character bios on this site had unarmed combat. I'm gonna check that out now and laugh at it.

He doesn't have Radiation or Electricity control they should both be removed.

Then how is this done? I don't believe it to merely be a matter of one going unto his page, clicking the edit button, and removing them. Is there a moderator or some site admin to contact? This may all sound trivial, but it is little errors like this that work to debunk the interlining truth to the whole site. While we all enjoy looking up our favorite characters, there are some that we go to looking for more information on - and no one wants to walk away suddenly believing this character to have some sort of power they don't, like Electrical Disruption (why is that a power of its own, by the way?).

Moderaters are G-Man, Captain Cascader and Red LAMP. They approve any edits for people with less than 1000 points and anyone if they are deleting. Anyone can edit any page. They get a lot of submissions so some things slip the net, that's why it's down to all of us to edit if we see a problem. At the moment, none of the pages are locked (like African Elephants were on wikipedia, thanks Stephen Colbert). One of the reasons the forums are here is so that we can discuss encyclopedia content.

Actually, anyone can edit these powers, but admins then have to remove them. I just removed them, and thus they should be gone when/if an admin approves the changes, which usually takes 0-24 hours.

This idiocy still continues? I will do everything in my power and use all of my considerable resources to put a stop to this.
