The tag wiki:

For questions about Marvel Unlimited, an online service that distributes Marvel Comics. It was launched in 2007.

There are 4 questions tagged with this. Two of these are wrongly tagged:

When and why did the Marvel Universe start to have alternative Universes?

How has magic changed in the Marvel Universe?

Other two are correctly tagged, but one is closed. Do we really need the tag?

Besides, does this tag really adhere to the policies of this site?

    I vaguely remember in one tag cleanup event suggesting removing a "shop" tag (think it was comixology), and was rejected. So yeah, they're valid. – Radhil Sep 27 '17 at 18:50

Yes, if (big if, see bold text below) there's at least one valid question specifically about an aspect of that service.

Of the two where it clearly didn't apply, I removed the tag. Of the other two, one is already closed. The last one is this:

Marvel Unlimited - comics aimed at young children

To me, this feels like a shopping question. It's asking for details about shopping for a service. Sure, it's a specific service, but it's still a shopping question. The answer could very well be outdated considering it's an ongoing, changing service.

It's akin to asking "Is X show available on Netflix?" which is off-topic.

So, in my opinion, this last question should probably be closed as off-topic, and then the tag removed from the closed questions as it's not really necessary. But, so long as we decide to keep that question open, the tag fits.


If tag is to stick around, I would expect a more appropriate use to be asking stuff about Marvel Unlimited related to the general Marvel fandom or the company, rather than just general "can I read X on Marvel Unlimited" questions. For example "Why did Marvel launch Marvel Unlimited?" or "Are some comics released exclusively on Marvel Unlimited (and not in print)?"

  • The question seems a reasonable one. A month has gone by and this is the only answer. It has had no downvotes, but only one upvote (mine - today). That doesn't seem enough to constitute consensus. I hope others will chime in, or at least vote. – Blackwood Oct 28 '17 at 3:43
  • @Blackwood The problem is most people don't care about such small tagging issues like this. Sometimes we just need to make executive decisions that follow best practices, we don't need a full community overview. – user31178 Oct 29 '17 at 3:57
