Does Countdown still count in the DCU? I only ask because of the many inconsistencies between the various Countdown series, Final Crisis, and many Post-Countdown books. If you remember the Charlton Comics Earth 4 Captain Atom was killed by Monarch, but in the later Final Crisis: Superman Beyond series, Captain Atom was a Doctor Manhattan pastiche from Earth 4. So again I wonder if some kind of not should be made in the article.

To quote from Final Crisis: "Ignore Countdown; Focus elsewhere". Not canon.--Master Chump 02:38, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
That doesn't mean it was not canon, just that in terms of the larger picture it had little to no meaning. Besides each of the 52 earths had alternate timelines so there is flexibility in major events in each of the worlds.--BruceGrubb (talk) 17:06, January 16, 2017 (UTC)
