Post-Crisis Batman Canon

Ever wonder about the Batman canon? It can be sporadic and change depending on the writer. However, thanks to some stringent research, I have narrowed down the main plots that make up most of the Batman canon.

Now obviously, I’m talking about the Batman storyline that rests in-between the Post-Crisis and Flashpoint events. Final Crisis mixed it up a bit, but that mainly effected Superman. If I included everything before or after, this list would go on for days.

As such, I narrowed it down to the story-arcs that had lasting effects on Batman and his family while they were fighting crime in Gotham City. The list is in chronological as I can tell.
