That's what I've always thought, that it's futile to try and gauge what's canon when there's been so many different interpretations of the character that have impacted the main continuity. Something like The Dark Knight Returns, for instance, is technically "else-world" but it has had an incredible amount of influence on everything Batman that came after it, including the Burton and Nolan films. So I really don't care what's canon and what isn't at the end of the day, they're all valid interpretations and stories.

And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
