60's Batman created "The Bat-Tusi" dance. That makes him the definitive Batman.
And the manga may not be real canon. I don't know. Who knows what crazy shit goes on with Nintendo continuity. All I know is that when the games weren't able to portray Samus with any sort of personality, the manga was the earliest attempts to fill in the blanks. So, when Samus has post traumatic stress disorder, is obssessed with a baby Metroid, or something like that that's already been shown as part of her character, I'm willing to accept it a little more.
If that works for you, good. I chose to ignore that all those cutscenes happened.
