A play on of words indicating that those who read The Phantom are "phans" (read fans) of his. Most words in The Phantom community universe that begin with an "F" sounding phrase can sometimes be converted to the "ph" equivalent, e.g.:
- fan to phan
- forum to phorum
- facts to phacts
- figures to phigures
This is never found in the comics themselves, something that is unique to The Phantom community.
