Fandom Headcanon Accepted!

Okay, so everybody hear knows what a fandom is, right? A collection of folks who are fans of a certain concept, idea, series or genre of works (ie Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Marvel or DC comics, etc).

What you might not know is the meaning of headcanon: A bit of trivia-type knowledge that is attributed to a certain fandom, despite never having been established fact, or even potentially being the exact opposite of an established fact; in essence, fandom fantasy as opposed to fandom fact.

Here, you can share some of your favorite headcanon from ANY superpowered, superhuman or supernatural fandom, or even come up with your own. To begin, I will give a few of my personal favorites:

1. Numerous Time Lords have been discovered on Earth through time, other than those shown on Doctor Who, and have become famous throughout human history. These include:

-Ms. Frizzle (The Teacher | TARDIS: Her 'magic' school bus | Companions: Her students)
-Mary Poppins (The Nanny | Bag obviously employs Time Lord Technology)
-James Bond (The Spy | How many faces has he had already?)
-Waldo (The Wanderer | His cane is maybe sonic?)
-Carmen Sandiego (The Rogue | Where in Space-Time is Carmen Sandiego?)
-Willy Wonka (The Confectioner | Recent regeneration looks eerily similar to Johnny Depp...)
-Michael Jackson (The Singer | Not very creative with his regenerations...seems only capable of getting lighter and more feminine?)
-Santa Claus (The Toymaker | TARDIS: His sleigh | Companions: His elves)

2. The Devil walks among us, and his recent efforts have resulted in the targeting of a very specific family. Despite the inaccurate chronological order in which the events were recorded in film, his tracks play out as follows:

-First, a series of disturbances is recorded within the Rimbauer house, Rose Red, over a hundred years ago. Deaths disappearances and all manner of other misfortunes abound. The house eventually goes dormant.
-Next, paranormal activity arises within the residence of one Carol Ann Freeling, a young psychic girl who is just discovering her powers. Her family is attacked numerous times, but eventually the evil is defeated, and her family escapes their clutches.
-Then the Freelings' cousins, the Lutzes, come under tremendous supernatural assault and abandon their new Amityville abode just 28 days after moving in. This, occurring thirteen months after estranged cousins on the mother's side, the DeFeo family, are found murdered in the same house, due to the same supernatural causes (which had been undisclosed to their incoming cousins).
-After the Lutzes, their cousins the MacNeils find themselves confronted with the frightening and powerful ancient spirit Pazuzu, who ends up taking hold of their young daughter Regan. They have to call in specialized help, but eventually are relieved of the spirit's malevolent presence.
-Trouble resurfaces again at the Rimbauer estate, Rose Red, but is defeated again, albeit after a much more trying bit of effort than the original attacks.
-Following the MacNeils' ordeal, their cousin, a Mr. Guy Woodhouse and his wife Rosemary find themselves pregnant as they prepare for to make a new life for themselves as newlyweds in Paris. Though, as it turns out, Mr. Woodhouse's benefactor (Mr. Roman Castevet), his wife, and their friends are all Satanists, who have plotted to take over the Woodhouses' lives, and utilize Rosemary as a vessel for the Devil. Though, this time, the family does not escape the clutches of evil. The baby is born, and is named Adrian Woodhouse.Though, in a few days' time, Adrian's mother comes to a point where she can see not only the evil that her benefactors have wrought for her life, but also the evil that her child is capable of. The Castevets' police reports indicate it was suicide, but a keener eye would make of it something more insidious.
-Regardless, the publicity surrounding the young boy's mother is far too inconvenient for the likes of the Castevets' plans. They ship the child, in secret, off to Rome, where he is unwittingly adopted by another relative, whose wife just lost a baby in childbirth. He is swapped out so that the wife never knows she lost her child, and the Castevets can give Adrian a clean slate. His surname is changed from Woodhouse to his adopted father's surname Thorn, and his first name Adrian is dropped in favor of his middle name...Damien.

So there. What do you think? Accepted or no? Have you got any ideas of your own?

3. As of the events of The Legend of Korra, Toph is not only still alive and kicking, but after years of training and refining her skills under the tutelage of her old friends Iroh and King Bumi, she has become an elite member of the Order of the White Lotus. In the process of her journey to search for enlightenment (prompted by her White Lotus affiliation), she has not only mastered conventional Earthbending (including Metalbending and Sandbending), but also Glassbending, and Lavabending (like the villain Ghazan).
