I always look at it like this... Superman can still be the last son of Krypton because in my mind, Zod and Co. come from the Phantom Zone so they survived by default, Supergirl is still the biological matrix and Conner Kent (Superboy) is a clone from Superman's DNA.

That is the continuity that I will follow until I die.

The reason why some fans come down on Batman 89 so hard since the Nolan films have been released is 2 fold: the Nolan films are newer and fans of the actual books don't read the 70's and 80's source material that the 89 film was based upon to understand how much more pure the 89 film is compared to the modern crime-drama trilogy that Nolan created.
