This had the knock-on effect of pretty much excising certain characters from the main DCU, for fear that a John Constantine and Franchise/{{Batman}} crossover [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids would encourage little kids to pick up]] ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}''. This meant that certain comics, though still technically part of the DCU, were [[ExiledFromContinuity unable to do "proper" crossovers]] or acknowledge that connection directly. This was relaxed occasionally for one-panel cameos (Constantine in ''ComicBook/{{Hitman}}''), characters whose comics have ended (Daniel from ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' appeared in ''JLA'', while Comicbook/AnimalMan and the Comicook/DoomPatrol have come back to Franchise/TheDCU full-time) and characters who have always straddled the divide between the two (ComicBook/{{the Phantom Stranger}}, Zatanna, et al). DC's 2011 partial ContinuityReboot brought several characters like Constantine and Swamp Thing back into the main DC continuity fold. The Vertigo-only ''Hellblazer'' continued to be published separately until issue 300 in 2013, when it was replaced by a main-DC-universe ''Constantine'' title. This left Vertigo proper no longer publishing any ongoing title featuring characters originating in the DC universe.

Some Vertigo series are technically part of Franchise/TheDCU, due to using DCU characters, and WordOfGod says the [[TheVerse shared universe]] titles like ''Comicbook/{{Hellblazer}}'' and ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' ARE part of the mainstream [[Franchise/TheDCU DCU]]. However, not all of them are always {{canon}} for the DCU characters, and some of them effectively take place in a world of their own. These include:

* ''Comicbook/AnimalMan''

Many of these were remakes of old DCU properties, given new life through clever writing. ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', ''Comicbook/AnimalMan'', ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol'', and ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' are probably the exemplars here. It seemed the rule was "The more obscure, the better"; series like ''Brother Power: The Geek'', a two-issue TotallyRadical attempt from the '60s to appeal to the "hippie" market, were brought back as [[DarkerAndEdgier dark, edgy romps]].

The Vertigo line was edited by Karen Berger from its inception in 1993, until she stepped down in 2013. It was Berger who edited Alan Moore's Comicbook/SwampThing, and brought Creator/NeilGaiman to prominence on Comicbook/{{Sandman}}, the series that led to the formation of the imprint.
