I tend to feel that its function is as much providing extras and fix-its as continuing the canon, but I certainly see the arguments for adhering to the tone and subject matter of the canon.

I think fanfic has multiple functions. And yes, fixing and continuing canon are good ones. I feel its purpose is whatever we want it to be.

My preference in my fandom is for very realistic fiction. That's what got me into X-Men in the first place, the ability to kind of squint mentally and believe it's all real. So, for me, the fighting is part of that. Which doesn't mean it *has* to be "on screen" but I've found there are things I can do with it that I couldn't when writing just what happened before and after the battle.
