Justice League members with shorter Wikipedia pages than Sam Fuld

by Colin Wyers

Here, in no particular order, is a list of Justice League members with shorter Wikipedia entries than Rays outfielder Sam Fuld, who clocks in at 10,154 (including his 165 references):

This is only the Justice League proper - I'm pretty sure that if you were only in the Justice League International or Justice League Detroit you have a shorter Wikipedia entry than Rabbit Maranville.

I think that part of it is that a couple years ago, Wiki decided to focus on being more of an encyclopedia instead of a repertoire of all things knowledge. As a result, a bunch of pages were just pruned to the Most Important Details, as opposed to cataloging everything someone had done. Sports subjects can kind of be off Wiki's radar, whereas comic books, video games and other Internet popular subjects were heavily pruned.

I didn't know about this change. Thanks for that. It creates some interesting thoughts about collecting knowledge.

I'm guessing you grew up with the satellite-era Justice League of America from the early 80s. In fact, it almost seems as if you used this pinup as a reference:

...except you left out Snapper Carr (unless he has a really long Wikipedia entry. I'm not checking.)

I don't understand. He's not good. What's the appeal?

Dang, now I'm heretical.

How can you not have a huge wikipedia page when you have amazing accomplishments such as being placed on an all star ballet and warming up as a pitcher. Lets all enjoy watching Desmond Jennings rise and leave this guy to sell insurance.
