With superman reborn superman post crisis stories and new 52 merged but my question is that stories of Superman Pre crisis / Silver age are canon?

Something of continuity pre crisis is again canon?

I don't think silver age/pre crisis stories are canon. It's only post crisis and new 52 merged together with a few minor changes.

@juanm578: Silver age was mostly all put out of canon with Crisis on Infinite Earths, that's why all of that era is called Post Crisis.

The Mxyzptlk stuff.

The JLA origin (based on Flash 22)

The Day of Truth (Superman Reborn call back)

Certainly more to come. If Flash 22 was an indication, things are about to get pretty interesting.

What's funny is that Superman was supposed to be the only one who remembered pre-Crisis Earth. So Byrne was a retcon of a retcon.

Technically everything since Action comics #1 is canon in the ongoing saga of the DCU. It's just that universe/timeline altering events occurred :P

But concerning what counts toward the Rebirth Universe, It's a post crisis dcu merged with the post flashpoint, Dr.Manhatten meddled dcu.

I'm not sure if even this new Superman timeline is still unaffected by Dr. M and it's inferred that it still is in the recent issues of action. Maybe it's still a compacted timeline with 10 missing years.

Anyway, aside from the recent issues of Action i'm developing my own head cannon to sort stuff out. Jon is definitely a spanner in the works of that development but i'm adjusting.

Also,

If Flash 22 was an indication, things are about to get pretty interesting.
