Conjecture, in the AEMH wikia, is speculation and inferences based on something else than canon, and any kind of non-canonical material.
What does it have to do with the AEMH Wiki?
The goal of the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes series Wiki is to present canonical information of the AEMH in a encyclopedic format. Therefore, we disallow fanon and/or material from the Marvel 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.
It's a known fact that the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest heroes series is based on characters, events, and places from the Marvel comic books. The creative team involved in the AEMH used the DC comics mainly as a primary resource to lay the foundations of the Animated series or to kick off its storylines. However, they used those elements at their own discretion and convenience. 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 Because Iron Man enrolled in the Massachusetts insitute, that doesn't mean that such fact should be conveyed into the AEMH canonicity, in the lack of canon background minutiae.
Here at the AEMH series Wiki, our main concern is to register only canon facts, leaving unspecified details to appropriate background sections. Although, there are exceptions.
Given the scope of the AEMH 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 and real names for the character infobox.
Character names are absolutely necessary, so as to create articles for unnamed elements of the AEMH (Mandarin). Conjectural species names is acceptable because most species are unstated on-screen, which means that even identifying Tony Stark as "human" is a mere assumption. Therefore, it's only suitable to recourse to Marvel sources in order to identify alien species, and assume that they correspond to their AEMH counterparts.
However, conjectural alien species should not spawn new articles.
What is considered canonical in the AEMH?
Everything that is stated and confirmed on-screen, or off-screen by the show's creators (writers, producers). The latter includes, but is not limited to, interviews, audio commentaries, and DVD features.
