Sometimes though, the powers that be can get rather liberal with their interpretation of the term "cameo."

Like when they incorrectly apply it to first appearances?

It can't be a cameo, since Wolverine was a new character.

But here's a textbook example of a cameo featuring Superman from Animal Man #2:

And this is still a horrific misunderstanding/misreading of even the dictionary definition.  

We won't even get into the horrific misunderstanding/misreading of the definition as it relates colloquially to comic books.

According to cgc, Animal man 2 is a Superman appearance. Its probably right because that seems enough to be a full fledged appearance. Does anyone know if cgc has ever clearly explained how they distinguish b/t cam and app?

CGC, like most folks, doesn't care about D.C.

Okay I suppose but what would that have to do with anything here? Maybe it's to imply cgc didn't put much thought into that particular notation?

I was just joking. I only have my opinion, but if there is no real bearing on the story, then it should still be a cameo to me .... like if I show up at my ex-wife's wedding reception, pound a few Michelobs, and get out before she knows I was there.... that's a cameo on my part. ASM Annual 1 has several cameos. ASM 18 as well, has a few cameos. As the hobby gets more and more slab oriented, it will become increasingly difficult for people to comprehend much of anything that actually happens inside the book. Plus , if a cameo isn't something deemed important to the SOL's.... it's no wonder people can't grasp the meaning of the concept anymore. GOD BLESS...

There is no consistency to CGC's notes, which is why I always tell people to disregard them entirely (well, plus there are some that are just blatantly wrong).

But a cameo is just a more specific description of an appearance, so they are technically correct.
