Hey DCU team,
So what I’m struggling with is the sense of continuity in some of the Rebirth Era comics.
Mainly the following:
How can Harley Quinn be in Coney Island AND imprisoned and a member of the Suicide Squad?
How can Dick Grayson be a one man show in Nightwing and then the leader of the Titans in Titans? I haven’t finished reading all of Titans Rebirth Era yet but I have finished all of Nightwing and I don’t see how it fits?
How does this “New Super-Man” fit into ANY sort of cannonical story? That entire character just seems so… forced.
Lastly, Barbara Gordon, is she in the Birds of Prey or taking vacations to Asia? Again, I haven’t finsihed the series but I’m not seeing any sens of continuity.
I haven’t even made it to Damian and Jon in “Super Sons” but I’m sure I’m going to have contnuity questions regarding the events of Damian and Jon in Teen Titans and Superman: Son of Superman.
I like to read the stories in order and I only like to read the ones that are cannonical. I have scoured the internet to find a list of which Rebirth Era comics are cannonical and which are “alternate stories”, but I can’t find anything. All I could find was a theory that Harley Quinn on Coney Island isn’t cannonical, and the Suicide Squad is.
However, what it seems like is that only the Rebirth Era series that have a REBIRTH comic to start the Era are actually cannonical. For example, Batgirl and The Birds of Prey started with a REBIRTH comic, but Batgirl did not. It seeems like The Birds of Prey is more cannonical because of that. Same with Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad started with a REBIRTH comic so it feel liks that is the actual cannonical story. However, this theory doesn’t work for Titans and Nightwing because they BOTH started with a REBIRTH comic.
Which stories are actually cannonical and which ones are alternates? I want to read all of them, but I want to start with the actual canon story in its actual canon order. Help me out, please!
Thanks for your time guys. You’re killing it with this sight and I look forward to more content!
P.S. PLEASE give Dick his Nightwing costume in Titans already… you’re killing me with the anticipation!
