Re: I thought they said the JJ-comics were canon?

^Sure, if that's all it is, that's fine. But the problem is when people think of canon as something that some authority is imposing on them, or on the creators, and make a fuss about how unfair it is that they're being oppressed by this completely imaginary authority. Or when they embrace the idea of being controlled by that authority and refuse to let themselves read or enjoy any story that isn't part of the canon. All I'm trying to point out is that canon is not a value judgment or an arbiter of worth, not a basis for condemnation and exclusion, simply a classification.
