Which means that its not the same "Kingdom Come Superman" that appeared in the mini.

In his appearance in All-Star Batman & Robin, it's mentioned he tried to poison the water supply a year ago. So that means All-Star Batman & Robin is year three. We can assume Jim Gordon adopted Barbara Gordon during year two.
And I'll say again......."Thats not that long ago and it would be too soon [imo] for her to be so freely calling James and Barbra, Mom and Dad".

And so far it doesnt seem like she's adopted.granted it is something that could come out later but it wouldnt be very inconsistent.

I call kissing and holding hands on a date, romantically involved. They hooked up. Sure, it was only one date, but it happened.
To me "romantically involved" implies something other then 1 hook up and a date.

Anytime you add the worded "involved" into a statement it implies a greater degree of activity in the topic being spoken of.

Same here.

Today is a good day to die...
