Slight spoiler from All-New X-Men.

Now that the original 5 X-Men are supposed to be permanently residing in 616, should the ones that have their future selves still around get new pages? Its going to get pretty confusing for Beast, Iceman and Cyclops (and possibly Angel, I'm not sure what's going on with him at the moment).

No, we don't want separate pages for alternate reality characters.

When does a alternate reality character get his own page? For example, Ultraman is Superman's evil alternate reality counterpart and he has his own page. Having a different name had anything to do with it?

There are a few exceptions which there are no clear rules about, but many appearances, lots of interactions with the main reality and different name and personality from the original helps.

@fesak: These characters are staying in 616 for the foreseeable future and already have different personalities to their 616 counterparts - especially Cyclops. It is likely to develop into a similar situation to that of Supergirl/Power Girl so at what point would we make the character pages separate?

@fesak: I see. Ok, thanks.

Not after four issues, maybe if they stick around for a couple of hundred.

@fesak: Fair enough. I expected that they might not get individual pages so soon.

The only (sometimes) exception to what fesak is when characters are taken from the public domain, but even then they should have substantial differences

Ugh. God. No.

The two Sabretooths deserve separate pages long before these stupid freaks.
