Conjecture is speculation and inferences based on something other than the official sources or sources otherwise considered as valid.


The goal of the wiki is to present official information of the universe in an encyclopedic format. Therefore, using fanon and/or material from the DC Comics as a means of filling in knowledge gaps or answering unanswered questions is not allowed. Deductions based on scientific facts or basic common sense are allowed, as long as these deductions are clearly presented as such and never labeled as official information.

It's a known fact that the universe is based on characters, events, and places from the DC comic books. The creative team involved in the DCU uses the DC Comics mainly as a primary resource to lay the foundations of the DCU or to kick off its storylines. However, they use those elements at their own discretion and convenience. When a specific detail pertaining to a place, character or event is not mentioned, accounted or implied should not assume that those unstated details coincide with the comics.

For example, just because Dick Grayson became Nightwing in the comics, that doesn't mean that such fact has occurred in the DCU.

Our main concern is to register only facts, leaving unspecified details out of the information provided. Although, there are exceptions.


Given the scope of the universe vs. the amount of background details unaccounted for, we are compelled to resort to a modicum of conjecture to circumvent certain conventions and impediments.

Conjecture is permitted in three situations:

  • Names for characters, groups, places, and objects, confirmed to exist within the fictional universe of the franchise, that deserve to have an article, but have not been fully named otherwise. This situation particularly includes the full names of characters adapted from the comics whose full name is not totally revealed.
  • The full names of individuals, and the name of the species they belong to, in order to fill the character infobox.
  • Information regarding a particular character or event that is revealed for an alternate universe counterpart, and it is not affected by the points of divergence that led to that alternate universe.

Article Names[]

Naming characters, places and objects is absolutely necessary, at least, to create an article for the "existing but unnamed" elements of the DCEU/DCU.

Following the Naming Policy, these names must match the description given in dialogue as accurately as possible. Once the article is created, this name will be the one used to refer to the subject across all articles in the wiki.


Most human beings appearing in the universe are never stated as such on-screen, which means that, for example, identifying Emilia Harcourt as "Human" is a mere assumption. Therefore, it is suitable to assume that a character that appears to be a human being is an actual human being unless there is clear evidence to the contrary.

A similar approach can be used for other species, such as Amazons, Atlanteans or Kryptonians, given the context of their appearances in DCU media, who all have human-like features. As such, for example, every character with the basic physical features of a Kryptonian appearing in a Kryptonian community is assumed to be Kryptonian unless explicit evidence to the contrary.

This also takes into account the species that a character may belong to in the original comics. Every character is assumed to belong to the same species as he belongs in the original DC comics, unless explicit evidence to the contrary.

Usually, if that particular race has not been identified, the species in question would not be granted an article or a category (e.g. Yalan Gur’s Species).
