with all those stories about universes being erased, changed and reborn...i say everything happened that the reader has read before!!!
and i certainly won't let the picture that i have of some characters in my head be destroyed just because DC says they are more relatable that way
They are so relatable to me because these are the characters i grew up with...and all the stories that i read just makes the connection stronger
and no reboot or relaunch or retcon is going to change that
