Is Batman Inc. on main continuity?

This has me crazy!! Morrison's run on Batman Inc. stared back before the New 52, then Leviathan Strikes came half year ago (saying it was placed on pre-Falshpoint) so right now:

Where is it placed?!? It can't be post-Flashpoint because the events on Leviathan Strikes are canon, and Stephanie was on it, and now on the New 52 she doesn't exist!!!!!!

WTF happens with this?!?

I dunno it's confusing, I think Morrison is just ignoring the fact that the universe that kinda rebooted, and is gonna finish his story anyway. I'm guessing it's canon, at least whatever has happened post New-52 is anyway.

Batman Inc. is canon. I'd assume the parts of it that took place Pre-Flashpoint did happen, they just happened a little differently in this new timeline.

Something that just irks me: and it takes an estute eye to hone in on, Batman Inc 3 when Dick and Bruce are looking at a web of interconnected characters (and Grant Morrison arcs) theres a picture of the Club of Heros from the 70s. Briefs, pixie boots, exposed legs and all. In fact, most of the web is made up of pre-New 52 appearences. Damnit, Morrison follow the established design continuity!!!

Unfortunately that cr@p is. He neither cares for canon or continuity so get use to it.

Batman Inc. Vol 1 is not canon, but parts of it are just like the rest of the pre-DCnU. I just think of it as non of it is canon and the story is just continuing while everything is unfolding. THe only thing I really hope they don't bring back, is that Bruce Wayne is financing Batman Inc. That was the stupidest plot point I have EVER read

I try not to think about it too much. Things get very confusing when one tries to place everything from 7+ Bat-Books in one schrunched up and already confusing timeline.

Please, like Grant cares about continuity.

It's to confusing and annoying to be in both timelines so I dropped it

Batman Inc aside from Snyder's and Tomasi's titles is by far the best featuring the bat. Far better than Dark Knight and Detective Comics.

If you cant handle sifting through the continuity then maybe comic books shouldn't be your hobby. lol

Batman inc is pre dcnu. DC only allowed it to be a monthly new 52 title to take up a comic slot that could be used on anyone else.

Donna Troy, Hawkworld, Power Girl. That is all.

Donna Troy, Aquaman, and Hawkman will always be the most confusing characters of all time. Batman Inc. just has few errors here and there. The only part that annoyed me is in Batwing they mentioned how Bruce Wayne is funding Batman (which really irritated me)

@hoole100: Why I would want to confuse myself? There's a reason why the only reboot-thing I have read is Flashpoint :P
