Truth be, no single story is ever really "right" or "wrong", but simply a
matter of how the writer views the characters. That being said, there's
also different versions of what is "canon" in the StH universe, coming
from Sega, two versions from DiC, and the ever-evolving Archie comics, as
well as a sort of "shared universe" here on the Internet with certain
original characters created by fan writers that get used by others, such
as Bookshire and Packbell.
