I used to be a continuity freak but now I say screw it...

Comics such as All-Star Superman have proved to me that all you need is to get the essence of the character right and good things will follow...keep what works and discard what doesn't.

Besides, continuity is not nearly as realistically obtained now as it was from the 60s to the early 90s, through which you could more easily suspend your disbelief in the sliding time line. But now it's just been too damn long to maintain that time line.
This. That is why I tend to prefer elseworlds are one-shot stories that play with the concept of the character in an interesting situation. I've been enjoying "Old Man Logan" for that very reason.
