My only problem with how continuity is treated...is if a lazy writer whines about how his hands are tied and just spits out some POS that completly ignores everything that came before.
See: John Byrne's Doom Patrol.
Now...the look of Abram's Trek? I ain't got a problem with it. DC's constant rebooting, and not even being sure THEMSELVES (right before the last reset) of the details of their flagship character's origin? BIG problem.*
*I refer to John Byrne's perfectly fine redo of Supes after COIE. (See I don't hate all Byrne's stuff) out of the blue not being good enough and being shoehorned aside for Waid's Birthright.
