Should we make this distinction? Yea or Nay? --rEGULAR gUY (☎) 20:31, January 5, 2019 (UTC)

I think it'd be too messy. We can't assume every superpowered human is a meta, magic and tech based powers aren't always obvious for example, but way too many probable metas aren't specifically identified as such. ― Psypher 20:54, January 5, 2019 (UTC)
It would probably only be those explicitly mentioned as such. Gar does note "Openly Meta" as a concept, though I think that there would be really dubious cases. Eg. Count Vertigo was surprised by superstrength and called Superboy a meta before realising who he was. Think there could be a lot of mistaken cases like that when other factors are at play.

I understand both of your points, though check this out. In a recent Reddit AMA, when asked if all metahumans were decedents of Vandal, Greg and Brandon answered that Cassie Sandsmark, Wonder Girl, is an example of a metahuman "who's meta-abilities come from HER father, Zeus." Cassie is a demi-god. So, I assume, in their minds, that "metahuman" may be a blanket term for just any human with superpowers on Earth-16. --rEGULAR gUY (☎) 22:22, January 26, 2019 (UTC)
