I'm not sure that It Takes a Village, Part 1 is talking about François Duvalier, but rather his son, Jean-Claude Duvalier. The Haitian was a teenager in 1992 (Company Man). Even if we stretch that and say he was 20 years old, that means he would have been born in 1972. François died in 1974, and I don't think, even by a stretch, the Haitian looks to be 2 years old in the ITaV,P1. I'm guessing that Duvalier is referring to to Jean-Claude. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:48, 29 May 2007 (EDT)

  • That was my though too, I'm guessing this was from late near the end, ealry 80s, as he couldn't have been much older by 1992 compared to this GN. I didn't want to speculate, and was hoping for now that more will be revealed in the future issues of the series. Alex W (talk) 13:56, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
    • True, there's some speculation invovled as to when the GN takes place, but some of it is necessary speculation. We don't know the Haitian's true age, but we can deduce it was somewhere in the 1970s or even 1980s. We know he was a minor in Company Man (Thompson calls him "a boy"). No, we don't know his age, but some speculation is definitely necessary to say that he wasn't a boy in 1972. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:18, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
      • Yeah, he could be as young as 6 in this GN, which if in 1983 could still have him as young as 15 in Company Man, so I agree it's highly likely to be Jean-Claude. Alex W (talk) 17:42, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
      • This should just be deleted. --Heroe!(talk) (contribs) 16:01, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
        • Duvalier may be more significant in the next installment of the GN, so I don't know if it's necessary to delete it right away. Of course, it can always be re-created, too. --Ted C 17:16, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
        • Why? He'd mentioned three times in the graphic novel, and this article provides some information important to understanding the context of the story and provides more sources of information. Alex W (talk) 17:42, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
        • I'm not sure why it would need to be deleted since he's mentioned quite a few times (3 I think) in today's GN. That's more than, say, the redhead prisoner or the cape-wearing boy. I do think it should probably be converted to a reference article, though, since the guy is never seen, and is not a typical character. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:43, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
