The canonicity of the series was disputed. The first twenty issues were officially classified as "Infinities" stories, meaning they were completely non-canonical, although some characters, concepts and stories appearing in these issues have been referenced in other EU works. The last five issues of the series, published after long-time editor Dave Land stepped down, are canonical so long as they don't conflict with established ideas. As of the Disney buyout and the old expanded universe being declared its own separate continuity from the current timeline, the stories are solely part of the ''Legends'' universe now.
