I feel like on the canon pages where the "appearances" list is, there should be a listing of the character's first true appearance. Something like (First Appearance, Non-Canon) or something.
The reason is, it almost feels like it's taking credit away from that character's creators. Even though the Legends page is still there, I still feel like the origin of that character should be linked on their canon page, but made aware to readers that that origin book/comic isn't canon.

Anyone is free to add information about original Legends appearances in the behind the scenes sections of relevant pages. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:34, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
I was thinking about that too, I'll keep my eye out for doing that when I see it then. Thanks. JuniBug (talk) 04:38, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing a little while ago, as it is pretty deceptive. StarsiderSWG (talk) 16:01, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
There can't really be a "First appearance, noncanon" notation on a canon page, because a noncanon book/comic wouldn't even be listed in a canon article's Appearances list. But "First canon appearance" could alert readers that the character/item/concept originated in a noncanon source. (Elaboration in Behind the scenes is good for significant subjects, but probably overkill for workaday items like the glowrod.) Asithol (talk) 20:49, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
