    Dick and Bruce being in bed together, topless.
    Superman being the Last Son of Krypton since there are Kryptonians all over the place.

    I don't remember that being a problem.

    He seemed to think the mainstream universe was his own personal sandbox he can treat like his own headcanon.

    He thought there needed to be disruption of the status quo every 5 years or 10 years. He has compared it in one interview to an enema. If you look at his reign of DC, it kind of matches in that he tries to crash the plane every 5 years:
    2006 - Infinite Crisis
    2011 - Flashpoint
    2016 - DC Rebirth
    2020 - 5G (averted beause he was fired)

    The goal is not the throw away everything, but to hold on to what makes the most sense, what is the strongest for the series and strongest for the books and then move out from there because if you held on to every single story, there'd be no stories left to tell.
    The problem is he's a terrible manager so his "enemas" end up being creative editorial disasters. And he doesn't have the creative instincts of people like Giordano or Berger and instead of getting post-Crisis DC, you end up with shlock like New 52 instead.
