Retcon is when a author or company completely erases or re-write a character(s),event(s), and or the entire series in a more logical manner to fix errors within the canon continuity.

Forced Retcon is different where the character is forced without any real reason to be re-written or erased from the continuity.


  • Pre-Retcon Means before the retcon.
  • Post-Retcon means the current version.
