How about adding specific story references for details like the capital punishment and supreme commander? It would be interesting to know where such things have been mentioned. Member 7 20:33, 17 December 2007 (CET)

I think I read it in the latest Fantomen, where it was a Lee Falk-story, if I am mistaking, it must have been in the issue where the first part of that story is. (it is a kind of sequel) Concerning death punishment for drugdealing, it was explicitly said in the story where Diana's cousin, Don Palmer gets caught with drugs on him. It has recently been published in Fantomen. In 1992 (at least published then, I think something like the 12th issue of that year) there also was a story when Worubu got caught with drugs and actually met the mysterious Commander. The idea that they are using hanging in Bangalla as a capital punishment is not surprising at all, since it is a former Commonwealth country, I was upset when Team Fantomen recently released a story where the Singh-pirates tried to kill the Phantom with an electric chair, that had been used in the old times.

The thing about the president being able to momentarily suspend some laws, has been in the daily strip very recently and was actually published at fantomen.com in swedish; Luaga hear that he has a corrupt man in the office and takes two witnesses on that he suspend the law about attacking and beating the president in order to have fair fight with the guy. The story was "The Doorman". Karl MAN--130.236.60.32 15:23, 18 December 2007 (CET)
The problem is to write these things smoothly into the text. I do not think that I want to do it. Karl MAN--130.236.60.32 17:51, 18 December 2007 (CET)
I created templates for footnotes (it was about time anyway). This way we can add references just like on "real" wikipedia, both to stories and other sources. Member 7 18:49, 18 December 2007 (CET)

Names

I noticed recently that the country was called "Bangali" in the Christmas Album, in the story "Mr Big", I cannot remember the exact year, though I think it was 1997, 1998, 1999 or 2000, most likely 1999. In this story, Luaga was called "Lumanda Luaga". This makes me wonder if this is a name actually used by Falk or a hybrid between Bangalla and Bengali, though it seem more likley to be Falk's creation. Anyone who know what Falk actually have calle his creations throughout the years, Swedish Phantom readers, like myself, are probably most used to the first versions but what other names have been used. (particulary the names of this country) Karl MAN--Karl MAN O 12:03, 31 January 2008 (CET)
