: : what i meant was the main continuity. there are several batman series that take place within the DC universe (batman, batman: gotham knights, batman:legends of the dark knight, detective comics, etc.). something like the dark knight returns is an elseworlds tale, one that occurs outside of the main dc universe. it's DC's version of Marvel's What If? series.

: I mean I can kind of see what you're saying, but "The Dark Knight Returns" is really the DC universe in the future. Everything else is the same. The 'Elseworlds' books are Batman in weird places/times like him w/Dracula, in the Wild West, etc.

dark knight returns came before elseworlds existed. it's considered to be more or less the first elseworlds story though (or am i thinking of something else?). either way, it's not necessarily what will happen in the future, it's only one possibility. kind of like kingdom come.
