Due to continuous retconning and a usually sliding timescale, sometimes it can be hard to decide on what is really canon in a fanfic set in the DC Universe. According to the PPC Manual, this has made most agents give up on it, but some still accept missions there.
The Batman continuum is divided into sub-continua that, while related, have no contact with each other, shown by an extension onto the Continuum Identification Code of the two movieverse sub-continua. The movieverses are referred to colloquially as the "Nolanverse" and the "Burtonverse," named after the most prominent director of each. Other sub-continua include the DC animated universe (see below) and the main series of DC comics, to be subdivided accordingly from there.
The Diniverse is the collective universe made up of various animated DC series that were worked on by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. It is a fairly tightly connected universe in comparison to the main comic universe.
The Diniverse is comprised of the following shows:
- Batman: The Animated Series
- Superman: The Animated Series
- The New Batman Adventures
- New Batman/Superman Adventures
- Justice League
- Static Shock
- Justice League Unlimited
- Batman Beyond
Other Animated Adaptations
There have been several cartoon shows based around DC characters that exist outside of the continuity set by the Diniverse. These adaptations are for the most part lighter in tone than the Diniverse (apart from Young Justice, which rivals the Diniverse in regards to maturity of tone and overarching continuity).
Other notable DC cartoon shows include:
- Teen Titans - The Teen Titans cartoon show focuses around the adventures of five teenage superheroes: Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Raven. Individual episodes vary from serious and somewhat grim to off-the-wall comedy. Its overall design is heavily influenced by anime.
- Batman: The Brave and the Bold - A Silver Age-influenced version of Batman that is visually and tonally distinct from the Diniverse. Each episode features Batman teaming up with another (and generally less well known to the general public) DC superhero, including the Blue Beetle, Plastic Man, and Red Tornado.
- Young Justice - This show focuses on a team of teenage superheroes and former sidekicks who have come together to complete covert operations assigned by the Justice League. Members of said team initially were Aqualad, Superboy, Miss Martian, Robin, Kid Flash, and Artemis.
A comic series written by Neil Gaiman, intended to show a darker, scarier side of the DC Universe. The seven Endless, including the main character Dream, exist within this 'verse. However, this has not restricted them to just the DC Universe.
In the PPC
The DC Universe has different minis for different series. The mini for Teen Titans is the mini-Slade, created at the Official Fanfiction University of Teen Titans. The mini for Batman-related names is the mini-Bat-Mite.
