We covered the important things that have happened in continuity in order to show as complete a picture as possible, but for the characters we took an approach that would allow anyone to look at any of the characters and understand who and what they're looking at.
have any of these events occurred in the DCU ? at this point in time , what continuity has DC got ?
Zero hour hasnt happned , invasion hasnt happned , so therefore this product inaccuratly portrays the DC universe.
PRE reboot , these events would have made sense, but to me if you took the character now , the ones that DC are producing , there inaccurate and misleading....

Check the copyright date on the inside of the Heroes' Handbook. 2010. The New 52 "direction" didn't exist in 2010. The project was started with the actual, long-established, DC Universe in mind.
The New 52 didn't exist at DC until late spring of 2011, and it wasn't inflicted on the rest of humanity until that autumn. It wouldn't be practical to try to do a series of game books based on variations of properties that are being continually redesigned as the game books are being worked on.
the heroes handbook was still in design in may 2011 , not yet released http://mutantsandmasterminds.com/dc_adventures/2011/05/
I am not saying it wasnt practical to design various iterations, I just feel both GR and DC knew of the changes to characters , and to be truer to the customer , they should have designed the books around what is being produced now.
I admit , my point about the movieverse versions was out of kilter with what I said before, I apologise.
