What does it have to do with the Master gods Database Wiki? Edit
The goal of the Master gods Database Wiki is to present canonical information of the Young Justice TV show in an encyclopedic format. Therefore, we disallow fanon and/or material from the DC Comics as a means of filling in gaps or answering unanswered questions. This does not preclude, however, deductions based on canon facts or basic common sense, as long as they are clearly presented as such and never construed as confirmed canon.
Despite its title, Young Justice is not an adaptation of Todd Dezago and Todd Nauck's Young Justice series of comics, but rather, an adaptation of the entire DC Universe with a focus on young superheroes. Additionally, the show reportedly follows a continuity considerably different from that of DC Comics, instead covering a "young DC universe" (Earth-16), which corresponds to the present time of our world and frees the show from established continuity restraints. This means that when a particularity pertaining to a place, character or event is not mentioned, accounted or implied on-screen ― or off-screen by the developers ― one should not assume that those unstated details coincide with the comics. Just because Superman has super-breath in the comics, it doesn't mean that it should be conveyed into the show's canonicity, in the lack of canon background minutiae.
Here at the Master gods Database Wiki, our main concern is to register only canon facts, leaving unspecified details to appropriate background sections. Albeit, there are exceptions.
Given the scope of the Young Justice universe vs. the amount of background details unaccounted for, we are compelled to resort to a modicum of comic book-based conjecture to circumvent certain conventions and impediments.
Conjecture is permitted in two situations:
- Names for characters, places, and objects seen on-screen but not named otherwise,
- Names of species for the character infobox.
Character names are absolutely necessary, so as to create articles for unnamed elements of the Young Justice universe. Conjectural species names is acceptable because most species are unstated on-screen, which means that even identifying as "human" is a mere assumption. Therefore, it's only suitable to recourse to DC sources in order to identify alien species, and assume that they correspond to their Young Justice iterations.
However, conjectural alien species should not spawn new articles.
How can we distinguish Canon names from Conjecture? Edit
In every article with a conjectural name, the "Background Information" section should include an explanation for it.
