Apparently we’re arguing over the importance of canon now. Ay dios mio. Well, this is something that matters to me as a writer, so here’s my two bits.
IMO, the biggest problem we have is that the community (fandom, artists, and critics – and that Venn diagram is far from a 100% overlap) is really discussing two things when they talk about “canon” for a franchise. One type of canon is continuity – the sequence of events that takes place in a story or series of stories set in the same timeline. The other is what I’m going to refer to here as legacy – the body of stories and/or legends that constitute the foundation of a setting/franchise/narrative.
They are not the same thing.
