With timeskips between seasons becoming a series staple, I think it makes sense now to add profile images galleries to depict characters across the years. This had been proposed before, if memory serves me right, but at the time the tools to accomplish it were not as sophisticated as they are today. Image galleries are now built in infoboxes, and on top of being seamless are also very useful for articles such as the soundtrack and comics. The only issue is that you can't decide which tab is shown by default, and as per our Image policy, characters infoboxes must show the "character's most recognizable likeness". This would mean that a character with a season one picture and another from season two, would need to have the latter shown by default. This, however, can be done with javascript.

So, in short, I'm proposing we add an images gallery to characters who have undergone significant physical changes across seasons, for example Nightwing, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, and eventually Stephanie Brown, etc. This is not meant to show characters in and out of costume (Batman, Superman) or characters that look the same in both seasons (every member of the Light). I cannot stress this enough: I do not want infoboxes to become image galleries showing all aspects of a character's likeness. ― Thailog 12:41, August 19, 2017 (UTC)

Noooo! Add all the possible image for everyone! It must look like this! --Tupka217 12:50, August 19, 2017 (UTC)
If there are not objections, I'll update the image policy accordingly. I'd prefer explicit consensus over tacit, but nothing would ever get done otherwise. ― Thailog 13:42, August 20, 2017 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. ― Psypher 15:26, August 20, 2017 (UTC)
