Okay, Here´s Astro-Man´s Image by Grant. Please Edit it as you wish.

So why are we taking the Heroes category out of Astro-Man? I can see he's lumped under sci-fi heroes, but in that case every single atomic hero should be there too and yet, they aren't. He's a superhero first and foremost, not a sci-fi hero. It's disingenuous to stick him in that smaller sidelined category when there are dozens or more heroes that could be stuck in that category but are in the heroes category. For example if, as I was doing last night, you decide to comb the Heroes category for a good PD/OS alternative to Superman, you miss out entirely on this guy, which kind of misses the point. I'll reiterate. He's a superhero. Not a sci-fi hero. Save that for the Flash Gordons and the John Carters. Vagrant Lustoid (talk) 15:14, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

One's a sub-category of the other so a single page shouldn't be in both.Cebr1979 (talk) 15:41, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

That doesn't explain why you took him out of the Heroes category instead of the Sci-Fi Heroes category. As I said, he was designed with the intent of being a Superhero. The description for the Sci-Fi Heroes category is "Science Fiction comic characters such as space heroes (like Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, Superman, John Carter, Gullivar Jones) characters from the future, or other characters that fit classic science fiction conventions" and Astro-Man is not any of that. He fits classic superhero conventions, so he should be in the Heroes category. Vagrant Lustoid (talk) 11:26, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

I got as far as "That doesn't explain why you took him out of the Heroes category..." and stopped. If you want him in the Heroes category... Put him there! Be my guest! BUT: take him out of the Sci-Fi Heroes category first. Problem solved! Also: if you're gonna do stuff... do it while logged in as you and not some random IP. If you're gonna do stuff as some random IP... don't throw a freaking tantrum when it gets undone. Look at what I just had to undo with the Pulp categories page. IPs are dumb. If you think I'm going to explain every single IP edit I undo... you're wrong. Log in or don't bitch.Cebr1979 (talk) 13:37, April 30, 2016 (UTC)
