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 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 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:

As the UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks moved on, Creator/DCComics noticed they were publishing several series that weren't just ''dark'', they were ''mature'' -- with complex, thinky, often philosophical stories and deep, complicated characters, by names like Creator/AlanMoore, Creator/GrantMorrison, and Creator/NeilGaiman. Thus, to separate these from the "normal" [[Franchise/TheDCU DCU]] fare, they created the Vertigo Comics imprint.
