75 years (and 6 years) of Batman

It’s “Batman Day” today (so say DC Comics), and the character was first published more than 75 years ago, in 1939.

One major difference between Batman and Superman is that while the ongoing narrative of Superman has been completely “rebooted” many times, most (but not all) Batman comics published could be said to “count”, still.

For example, Batman #244 published 1972 includes this panel -

     

- and it’s still a major chapter in what’s understood to have “gone before” the Batman comics of today, (redrawn again and again as a flashback). Damian Wayne was the result of this meeting of hero and villain.

"The New 52" relaunch put a Six-Year timeline on the "comics time" of the caped heroes’ existence. Yet the union that created Damian Wayne (as Batman and Robin #0 of "The New 52", which is the story of a decade of "comics time") was years before that.

Link, my thoughts on how to resolve this contradiction.
