In that case, I think it's more likely the Wiki information was added either by Kevin Grevioux, or by someone else at Marvel, in advance of it being used in a comic.|
: They've never appeared in any official
: handbook listings though. And all of their
: comic appearance are with out real names.
: The whole "Christian Cood"
: sibling, and Redneck's real name thing MAY
: have come from the X-Men Last Stand novel,
: but I've got all the handbooks, and the
: UncannyXMen.net write ups have them listed
: as unrevealed names, and every source that
: I've seen EXCEPT for wiki, and a couple of
: wiki sites like marveldatabase including the
: sibling relationship and still not including
: the real names.
: But no, this had to have come from wiki,
: because there was no other source.

: It's possible that they got names in one of
: the Official Handbooks too. But yeah --
: Lord how I hate Wikipedia misinformation.
: Thanks for the info. Poor Tattoo.

: She was Tattoo, Christine Cood, a member of
: the Xavier Institute student body who had
: become a member of Quentin Quire's Omega
: Gang during the riot at Xavier's. She was
: under the influence of the evil force called
: Sublime while high on Kick a drug that
: enhances a Mutant's abilities tenfold, and
: also allowed the sentient force called
: Sublime to control individual's actions.
: Tattoo, Redneck, and Tattoo's brother,
: Radian (Christian Cood), were all placed
: under arrest. They went to human jail, and
: then served out terms working for
: humanitarian organizations and charities in
: third world countries afterwards, according
: to Wolverine's 'sentencing.' This is
: possibly where they became connected to the
: Warriors, perhaps working for the Taylor
: Foundation while helping out with third
: world charities.
: Either way, we've learned for sure that
: Longstrike was Tattoo, and we can infer that
: Radian is Phaser.
: Some have extended this to meaning that
: Redneck, the third of the trio to be jailed
: and to lose their powers is Skybolt.
: An important thing to note though about this
: revelation and what it means... to
: In addition to calling Longstrike both
: Christine and Tattoo, the issue also has
: Phaser called Christian. Given that the same
: source of their being siblings (Wikipedia)
: also had Radian named Christian Cood, I
: think we know a couple of things. One,
: Longstrike and Phaser are indeed Tattoo and
: Radian. Two, Wikipedia added their being
: siblings and Radian's real name to
: continuity, as these were NEVER facets of
: their character to appear in the comics. It
: MAY have been from the X-Men: the Last Stand
: Novel adaptation, by Chris Claremont, but
: I'm not sure, I've not read it. It is the
: only source for their Wikipedia entries that
: I've not read and recently checked
: thoroughly as well. I too have spread
: support for the theory, and it is apparently
: true, but having looked at it, Wiki has now
: served the function of either making up a
: character's real name and making two
: characters related, OR bringing in out of
: continuity stuff from a movie novelization
: into continuity. Either way, score one for
: Wiki misinformation.

: She has a brother, presumably both of them
: used to have mutant powers, and her name was
: Christine. Was she anybody we should
: recognize from somewhere else?
