Canon (in the context of fandom) is a source, or sources, considered authoritative by the fannish community. In other words, canon is what fans agree "actually" happened in a film, television show, novel, comic book, or concert tour. The term derives from the theological concept of canon, the foundational texts of a religion.

Specific sources considered canon may vary even within a specific fandom.

Canon and Welcome to HellEdit

In Welcome to Hell, canon includes Erica Wester's Word of God, the initial comic, and the short film, though the short film is considered "most canon".
