This may be the fifteen years of Games “pick and choose your own canon” Workshop talking, but unlike many people I’ve seen in the fandom over the years, I don’t care about “what is and isn’t canon.” I separate things between ‘official’ and ‘fanworks’ and that’s that. And I can’t say I’m worse off for it.
Yes, the cartoon supersedes the comics and not the other way round, but they’re both official material to me. Even when they contradict each other, because I don’t feel said contradiction matters or destroys anything.
It’s not like canon is guarantee of quality anyway, on either side of that fence. And if I feel something doesn’t ‘belong,’ I just go “not canon as far as I’m concerned” as opposed to “not canon, objectively, for everyone, fullstop.”
I guess not considering canon something sacrosanct makes me pretty fluid about how much it actually ‘matters.’
