The best example I can give is to point to the mess that Warner Brothers made of the DCEU when they thought to create a comic book universe with no regard to continuity.


That universe was only a couple of movies old, so there was no continuity to contradict.

What made them bad was that Snyder's take on these characters lacked broad appeal.

Superman being sour didn't violate continuity in a universe where he had never been sweet. It simply wasn't one of the takes on how Superman should be that people wanted to see.

Superman rendering his teammates utterly pointless didn't violate continuity in a universe where they had never been close enough to him in power-level to be worthy allies. It simply wasn't a take on the characters that the general audience wanted to see in a team-movie.
