The DC Multiverse is a fictional continuity construct that is used in DC Comics publications. The Multiverse has undergone numerous changes and has included various universes, listed below between the original Multiverse and its successors.

The original MultiverseEdit

CatalogedEdit

Originally, there was no consistency regarding "numbered" Earths—they would be either spelled out as words or use numbers, even within the same story. For example, "Crisis on Earth-Three!" (Justice League of America (vol. 1) #29 (August 1964)) uses "Earth-3" and "Earth-Three" interchangeably. However, a tradition of spelling out the numbers emerged in "The Most Dangerous Earth" (Justice League of America (vol. 1) #30 (September 1964)). This convention was disregarded in Crisis on Infinite Earths, and it became common practice to refer to the various Earths with numerals instead. Infinite Crisis used both, but Crisis On Infinite Earths: Absolute Edition and everything after 52 have referred to the alternate universes with numerals.

Because 52 introduced another set of Earths, The Flash: Flashpoint changed the nature of many of those Earths. The New 52 and Convergence restored the Pre-Crisis Multiverse; all Pre-Crisis Earths below 52 are spelled out (i.e., Earth-Three), realities from the 52 Multiverse use a hyphen (Earth-3), and realities from the New 52 Multiverse use a space (i.e., Earth 3). This helps, as The New 52 introduced a Dark Multiverse that uses negative numbers (i.e., Earth -3).

Also, Earths that were "revealed as a distinct parallel Earth in The Kingdom #2", i.e., part of Hypertime, are marked with a "*". Variations of some of these worlds appeared in the 52 and New 52 Multiverses, which are also Hypertime realties.[1]

Designation Era Inhabitants Notes First Appearance
Earth-Zero Infinite Crisis Earth-Zero is populated by Bizarro versions of various DC characters
  • Earth-Zero's only appearance was in a single panel in Infinite Crisis #6. It is a homage to Htrae, the Bizarro World, with its population of Bizarros and its cubical shape. The original Bizarro World was not a parallel Earth, but another planet that existed in the same universe as Earth-One.
  • This was one of the proposed names for the post-Zero Hour DC Universe after a somewhat definitive timeline was established[2]
Infinite Crisis #6 (May 2006)
Earth-One Pre-Crisis DC's Silver Age heroes, including the original Justice League of America: police scientist Barry Allen as the Flash; test pilot Hal Jordan as Green Lantern; Thanagarian Katar Hol as Hawkman; scientist Ray Palmer as the Atom; and reporter Clark Kent (Kal-El), who as a teenager became Superboy before starting his career as Superman.
  • The default Earth for most of DC's comics during the time the original DC Multiverse construct was in use, Earth-One was by far the most populated and widely explored and it retained dominance over the other four worlds which were merged with it during the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline.
  • First described as a distinct Earth in The Flash (vol. 2) #123 (September 1961), first named in Justice League of America (vol. 1) #21 (August 1963)
More Fun Comics #101 (January 1945)

The Earth-One Batman and Gotham City first appeared in Detective Comics (vol. 1) #327 (May 1964)[3][4]

Earth-Two Pre-Crisis DC's Golden Age heroes, including the Justice Society of America, whose careers began at the dawn of World War II (concurrently with their first appearances in comics): chemistry student Jay Garrick as the Flash; radio engineer Alan Scott as Green Lantern; archaeologist Carter Hall as Hawkman; pint-sized powerhouse Al Pratt as the Atom; and Clark Kent (Kal-L), who began his career as Superman as an adult.
  • Politically, Earth-Two was different from the Earth-One template modeled after Earth-Prime. For example, Quebec was an independent nation autonomous from Canada, South Africa had abolished apartheid sooner and the Atlantean countries of Poseidonis and Tritonis were both ruled by a queen, not a king, their inhabitants displaying surface-dweller features and no capacity for underwater survival, as the Atlantis continent had been raised to the surface (the model was the Atlantis seen in Golden Age Wonder Woman stories).
  • First described as a distinct Earth in The Flash (vol. 2) #123 (September 1961), first named in Justice League of America (vol. 1) #21 (August 1963)
  • Hypertime version called Earth-2
New Fun Comics #1 (February 1935);[5] retconned to The Flash (vol. 2) #123 (September 1961)[6]
Alternate Earth-Two (Earth-Two-A) Pre-Crisis a variant of DC's Golden Age Superman and possibly other heroes
  • Clark Kent worked for the Daily Planet under editor Parry White in the 1940s and 1950s (on the regular Earth-Two Kent worked for the Daily Star, his editor was George Taylor and Perry White was a reporter)
  • Suggested by E. Nelson Bridwell in the Superman Family letters page to explain inconsistencies in 1940s and 1950s Superman stories with Earth-Two history
  • First named as a distinct Earth in The Official Crisis on Infinite Earths Index (March 1986)
  • DC Wiki suggests that the Golden Age appearances of Superboy might have been on this Earth. Note: this is different from Earth-Forty, where Superboy was already a famous superhero who grew up and regularly operated in Metropolis.
Debatable
Earth-Three Pre-Crisis The Crime Syndicate of America, evil versions of the Earth-One heroes (Ultraman, Owlman, Superwoman, Power Ring, Johnny Quick); the heroic Alexander Luthor; and briefly his son, Alexander Luthor, Jr.
  • History was "backwards": American Christopher Columbus discovered Europe; Great Britain won its freedom from the United States; President John Wilkes Booth was assassinated by a crazed actor named Abraham Lincoln; the United States flag's colors were reversed: black stars on a red field, with alternating blue and black stripes; and all superheroes are supervillains and vice versa.
  • A Hypertime version of Earth-Three was seen in Another Nail

  • Earth-Six is apparently ruled by a royal family of superheroes (Lord Volt is referred to as the king, and he mentions his family's reign over Earth). On this Earth, America lost the Revolutionary War, and technology appears to have advanced more rapidly than on Earth-One. Earth-Six was destroyed in Crisis, with only Lady Quark surviving.
Crisis on Infinite Earths #4 (June 1985)
Earth-Seven Infinite Crisis Dark Angel, an evil analogue of Donna Troy
  • The Anti-Monitor saved Dark Angel, just as the Monitor had saved her good counterpart Harbinger.[7] The only known survivor of Earth-Seven, Dark Angel escaped the compression of the Multiverse to torment Donna Troy across several lifetimes.[7]

Nelson Bridwell, and/or appeared in The Brave and the Bold and World's Finest Comics.[16]

UnclassifiedEdit

Before the formal creation of its Multiverse, DC would use the "imaginary story" label to denote stories that did not fit and never were intended to fit into its canon—a tradition it would continue even after the creation of the Multiverse. Alan Moore's "What Ever happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" (Action Comics (vol. 1) #583 and Superman (vol. 1) #423) in 1986 was the last Pre-Crisis story to use the label.

By contrast, other stories were clearly intended to be canonical, but various details were wrong or there were stories told in other media that were never said not to be canonical. As a result, fans and editors would create other Earths to explain things like the Super Friends comic (set on what writers referred to as Earth-B[24]).

Also there were many "one-shot" Earths (such as the Earth shown in "Superman, You're Dead, Dead, Dead" in Action Comics (vol. 1) #399), for which few details were provided and would not be named until Crisis on Infinite Earth: Absolute Edition (November 2005) was published. Finally, not all alternate reality stories were assigned a name. These included (but were not limited to) the two-page "How Superman Would Win the War" (1940), the ancient Greece/ancient Israel mash-up world from Action Comics (vol. 1) #308 (January 1964), the Earth where "The Super-Panhandler of Metropolis" and "The Secret of the Wheel-Chair Superman!" (Action Comics (vol. 1) #396-397) take place, and some of the Earths seen in Superboy (vol. 4) #61-62.

DC's one universe, one timeline idea was silently killed off with the creation of the pocket universe (which was to explain why the Legion of Super-Heroes still remembered a Superboy when none existed in the Post-Crisis reality). The Official Crisis on Infinite Earths Index (March 1986) and The Official Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover Index (July 1986) formally canonized the "Crossover Earth" where the Marvel and DC characters co-existed, making multiverse-changing events problematic at best. Then, you had parallel universes (like that of the Extremists) where the counterpart of Earth had a different name, as well as the realities of the Darkstars and Justice League series.

Crisis on Infinite Earth: Absolute Edition (November 2005) formally canonized and named many imaginary tales, the Tangent Comics universe and some Elseworlds as part of the Pre-Crisis Multiverse, even though some (such as the pocket universe) had clearly existed after the Crisis.

In the "With A Vengeance!" storyline in Superman/Batman, the Multiverse is visited by Bizarro and Batzarro. The Joker and Mr. Mxyzptlk summon Batmen and Supermen from various realities, both previously established worlds as well as unexplored ones.[14]

Convergence retroactively prevented the destruction of the original DC Multiverse, so all the Pre-Crisis earths exist but in an "evolved" form, though all characters in continuity or canon can be used by writers.

Designation Era Inhabitants Notes First Appearance
The Post-Crisis Earth Post-Crisis All residents of the reconstituted Earth formed following Crisis on Infinite Earths
  • This universe has various derivations, explained as manifestations of Hypertime and influenced by the actions of Superboy-Prime. This Earth blends elements of the last five universes existing prior to the Crisis.
  • This Earth existed until the events of Infinite Crisis and the creation of New Earth, though the events Zero Hour: Crisis in Time, JLA/Avengers and Infinite Crisis, as well as Hypertime, changed the history of the reality.
  • This Earth is dubbed "Earth 2" by the Antimatter Universe's Lex Luthor, who dubs his own Earth "Earth 1"
  • Fans have often called this Earth "Earth-Sigma", as Sigma means summation—in this case, the summation of five other universes[25]
Crisis on Infinite Earths #11 (February 1986)
The Antimatter Universe Post-Crisis The Crime Syndicate of America: Ultraman, Owlman, Superwoman, Power Ring, and Johnny Quick; the Justice Underground: Alexander Luthor, Sir Solomon Grundy, General Grodd, Q-Ranger, Lady Sonar, Star Sapphire, and the Quizmaster
  • A Post-Crisis Antimatter Earth with a Crime Syndicate whose motto is "Cui bono?" ("Who profits?"), inspired by the Pre-Crisis Earth-Three. Originally, the Luthor of the CSA Earth, upon discovering the positive-matter Earth, named his world "Earth 1" and the positive-matter Earth "Earth 2" (no hyphens). Subsequent appearances revised the naming convention and simply referred to it as the Antimatter Universe's Earth, and also established that the CSA's Earth existed in the same Antimatter Universe as Qward.
  • This Earth was destroyed and then recreated due to the events of JLA/Avengers #1 (September 2003)

Gotham City Garage Post-Flashpoint Variants of Prime Earth characters
  • An Earth where the entire continent, except for Gotham City (renamed "the Garden"), is a wasteland
Gotham City Garage (vol. 1) #1 (December 2017)
SuperFriends Pre-Crisis variants of Earth-One heroes and villains
  • The Earth where the SuperFriends animated TV series and comic books took place
  • There are many contradictions within and between the animated TV series and comic books
  • Based on The Official Crisis on Infinite Earth Crossover Index (July 1986) the comic book should be part of "Earth-B", but there are continuity issues. For example, SuperFriends #12 (June–July 1978), where Dan the Dyna-Mite is shown alive and well, conflicts with JSA: The Golden Age (1993), where his brain was replaced with that of Adolf Hitler's and he was killed by the JSA.
  • This may have been Earth-B2
TV: SuperFriends - "The Power Pirate" (September 1973)

The Fourth World Pre- and Post-Crisis Darkseid, Orion, Mister Miracle and Big Barda
  • The Fourth World is a continuum inhabited by the New Gods. Its two main worlds, New Genesis and Apokolips, are mirror reflections of each other: New Genesis, the bright, glorious home ruled by Highfather, and Apokolips, the fiery, horrific home of the evil warlord Darkseid and his minions. Inhabitants of these worlds have been frequent visitors to the Earth-One and Post-Crisis Earths, but it has been shown that they could venture into any number of alternate worlds. The Fourth World was not affected by the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths.[citation needed]
Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #133 (October 1970)
The Dakotaverse Pre-Zero Hour Icon, Rocket, Static, Hardware and the Blood Syndicate
  • In 1993, word of a gang war on Paris Island resulted in Mayor Jefferson ordering enforcement officials to spray every gang member present with an experimental tear gas laced with a radioactive marker that would allow the police to track the participants down later. Survivors then became known as "bang babies" and were given mutagenic abilities.
  • Following the death of Darkseid (as chronicled in Final Crisis), the space-time continuum was torn asunder, threatening the existence of both the Dakotaverse and the mainstream DC universe (containing New Earth). Dharma was able to use energies that he harnessed from Rift (upon that being's defeat) to merge the two universes, creating an entirely new continuity.[27]
Hardware #1 (April 1993)
Trinity Post-Crisis Justice Society International
  • A spell that was to replace Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman as the Trinity of New Earth was corrupted, resulting in a major alteration of New Earth's history. The Justice Society of America did not disband in the 1950s, but became Justice Society International and created a mistrust of the heroes who would form the Justice League. The reality tried to replace Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, but continued efforts to become the Trinity by the spellcasters made the reality inherently unstable, with a rapidly changing history.
Trinity (vol. 1) #18 (October 2008)

The 52 MultiverseEdit

A new Multiverse was revealed at the end of the 52 weekly maxiseries.[28] Unlike the original Multiverse, which was composed of an infinite number of alternate universes,[29] this Multiverse is composed of a predetermined number of alternate universes, which were originally referred to as New Earth and Earths 1 through 51, although erroneously in Tangent: Superman's Reign #1, New Earth is referred to as Earth-1; however, in Final Crisis: Superman Beyond #1, New Earth is instead designated Earth-0. Dan Didio has since explicitly denied that New Earth is Earth-1.[30] The alternate universes were originally identical to New Earth and contained the same history and people until Mister Mind "devoured" portions of each Earth's history, creating new, distinct Earths with their own histories and people, such as the Nazi-themed version of the Justice League that exists in Earth-10.[31] Each of the alternate universes have their own parallel dimensions, divergent timelines, microverses, etc., branching off of them.[32]

The Guardians of the Universe serve as protectors of the new Multiverse.[33] Each universe within the Multiverse is separated by a Source Wall, behind which the Anti-Life Equation keeps the universes apart.[34]The Bleed permeates the Anti-Life Equation in unpredictable places[34] behind the Source Wall,[33] allowing for transport between the universes. The destruction of New Earth would set off a chain reaction that would destroy the other 51 alternate universes at the same time, leaving only the Antimatter Universe in existence.[33] As a consequence of Alexander Luthor, Jr.'s attempts to recreate the Multiverse,[35] 52 new Monitors were created to oversee the 52 universes created afterwards.[36] The Monitors seek to protect the Multiverse from people who crossover from one alternate universe to another, through the Bleed or through innate ability, who the Monitors have labeled "anomalies".[37]

A partial list of some of the alternate universes that make up the new Multiverse was revealed in late November 2007.[38]

The Multi-MultiverseEdit

The New 52 and DC RebirthEdit

The Flashpoint story arc ended with a massive change to the Multiverse; to what extent it is entirely new, and to what extent it is as it was formed in the wake of 52, has not fully been established. Some worlds, like Earth 1 and Earth 23, appear to be entirely untouched, while others, like Earth 0, Earth 2, and Earth 16, have changed drastically. A number of worlds from the previous Multiverse were also reassigned; for example, Earth 31, originally the alternate Earth where Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns and All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder is set, is now occupied by post-apocalyptic waterworld analogues of Batman and other DC staples. In July 2014, a map of the Multiverse was released, in promotion of Grant Morrison's The Multiversity series.[77][78]

There are 52 Earths in the local Multiverse home to the DCU Prime Earth, though due to the time-traveling interventions of Brainiac, the Hal Jordan of the Pre-Zero Hour New Earth DCU, and Superman of the Pre-Flashpoint New Earth altering the course of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, an infinite number of universes from previous incarnations of the Multiverse exist beyond these 52. This new model of creation involves multiple incarnations of the Multiverse suspended within a "Multi-Multiverse", with individual Multiverses existing as 'bubble' sets of grouped universes, such as the local 52. In February 2018, the Dark Nights: Metal series disclosed the existence of an additional Earth within this context, populated by sapient metasimians.[79]

Infinite CrisisEdit

Designation Description
Prime (Earth-0) Home to legends like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, this universe is where hundreds of heroes and villains originate. The keystone upon which the Multiverse rests, and so the Monitor has great interest in maximizing the fighting potential of its populace to better defend it from extra-dimensional threats.
Arcane (Earth-13) The Shadow League, a cabal of twisted sorcerers, lusted for absolute rule over this Earth. Blinded by ambition, the Shadow League performed a ritual that extinguished the Sun. With eternal night blanketing Earth, the world's most powerful magicians united to reignite the Sun, but its new arcane heart forever altered life on Earth. Heroes and villains have since adapted to their magically infused environment, developing strange new abilities.
Atomic (Earth-17) As the Cold War was brewing between the world’s superpowers, a mysterious object from space crashed into Kansas. Mistaking the crash for a first strike, the United States unleashed its full nuclear arsenal against the Soviet Union, who retaliated. The ensuing nuclear war instantly vaporized 97% of all life on this Earth. The survivors hope that the Earth can be healed, but the nuclear aftermath has left them with scars that never will heal.
Gaslight (Earth-19) The Victorian Era has swept through this Earth and a prosperous Age of Invention has revolutionized society through powerful steam technology, and this amazing progress is only the beginning. Heroes and villains have begun to emerge from all corners of society, and with them bringing new sources of power and problems far stranger than steam and gaslights.
Nightmare (Earth-43) Tales of horrors prowling the night were once just legends on this Earth - until the darkness returned. Ancient and terrible powers beyond comprehension awoke and brought with them an army of monsters. In fighting these creatures, some heroes have fallen, twisting into monsters themselves. Heroes and villains have set aside old rivalries and are united in fighting the darkness that threatens to engulf their world forever.
Mecha (Earth-44) On this Earth, there were no heroes, until a league of scientists known as the Justice Consortium created them. Technology had always been advanced on this Earth, but these new robotic creations were able to think and feel and wielded powers beyond anything yet seen. They now defend the Earth from threats within and beyond, particularly the Doom Legion and their villainous assassin robots.

A convergence of MultiversesEdit

The end of the Convergence series resulted in the retroactive saving of the Pre-Crisis DC Multiverse. In an interview Jeff King stated, "The battle to save not one, but two multiverses in Convergence provides it", and later states, "In Convergence #8 we reference Multiversity and show you some of the Post-Convergence worlds that make up the reconstituted DC Multiverse. In many ways, the number of Worlds is now infinite. There may even be more than one Multiverse.", as well as, "Post-Convergence, every character that ever existed, in either Continuity or Canon, is now available to us as storytellers.".[189]This leaves open the question of how (or even if) the Pre-Crisis, Hypertime, 52 and post-Flashpoint Multiverses interact.
