    Broadly speaking Yes, I explained up above. But cast your mind back to the 1986-88 years, we saw at the end of the Crisis that the remaining earth's were Earth's 1 & 2, Earth-Shazam, Earth-Charlton, and Earth-x. And out of those earth's we know only 1 & 2 had a Superman, hence the revised Superman being a merged result of the histories of Earth's 1&2

Why would you possibly assume this? The revised/post-crisis Superman is most certainly NOT the E2 Superman who went to the paradise dimension w/his history and memories.

It's questionable if he is the anything of the pre-Crisis Superman because they have radically different memories and pasts. It would make sense if it was the E1 Superman who was revised; but this was not shown or made explicit at all. Indeed, at the end of COIE, we are left w/E1 Superman left intact *as* the E1 Superman.

I'm not talking influences; I'm talking in-continuity reasoning.

Look, I (kinda) get what you're saying, but I'm not convinced we (or DC) believe that post-Crisis Superman is E1 SUperman in any shape or form. Therefore, it begs the question (for me, anyway). . what the hell happened to the Man of Tomorrow?

    As with Batman's past adventures large swathes were either erased or rewritten.

No, Batman's bronze age history (and memories of it) remained very much in tact (except of course his Worlds Finest adventures w/pre-Crisis Superman).
