Actually, DC is NOT saying the Batman continuity is unaltered. For example, they're now saying Tim Drake was never "Robin". They now claim he began super-heroing as "Red Robin", a show of remembrance and respect for Jason Todd's Robin (when Jason was thought dead).

We also know that things Batman was involved in where other parts of the DC Universe are concerned couldn't have all happened the way they did in the previous timeline, since much of the rest of the DC Universe has changed, Batman being indirectly affected.

Then there's the matter of Helena Wayne of Earth 2 having at some point taken over the identity of Helena Bertinelli. Did she do this before The Huntress first appeared on the mainstream Earth? After? Was Huntress ever Batgirl?

How did Bruce father Damian in his Batman identity when he couldn't have become Batman yet at that point in time?

Too much HAS changed, even with stuff we HAVE had explained, let alone stuff we haven't.

As for Jade, don't forget that since Alan didn't even EXIST in the 40's of the mainstream nu DC Earth, Jade couldn't have existed either.

I know all about the RED ROBIN/ROBIN fiasco but DC's *official* stance (until its not and they change it again) is that all the BATMAN classics are still considered in continuity, we've already seen DEATH IN THE FAMILY and the KILLING JOKE acknowledged, just to name 2) We also no that its canon, in the NEW 52 that Dick Grayson served as Batman for a year whilst Bruce was "missing".

Don't get me started on the whole was there a Helena Bertinelli on Prime Earth thouugh, that just gives me a headache!

My point is that DC's *official* stanc e going back to the interviews done by Didio and Bob Harris) is that G.L and Batman have not been rebooted.

I agree this is very flimsy and hard to accept but it *is* the official policy.

I hope you had a good Christmas anyway though (and apologies for the greatly delayed reply!)
