Mr. Greg Weisman,
On this posting, there will be no questions. However, it seems only fair that Iâd tell you something that I feel you may want to know. You may recall from at least two postings that I telling you about the post-Flashpoint DC multiverse. My suspicions were correct; DC Comics appeared to have cleaned the entire DC multiverse and are starting fresh. Hereâs what I do know thus far and wish to share with you:
THE NEW DC MULTIVERSE THUS FAR (Post-Flashpoint):
a. First, we have our mainstream DC universe (aka. DCnU), but we still donât know if its designation still remains as New Earth/Earth-0.
b. We have Earth-23, which was introduced in Action Comics #9. The Superman of this Earth seems to be modeled after our current President. His Kryptonian name is Kalel (and thatâs how itâs spelled within the comic), while his human name is Calvin Ellis. Iâd like to tell you other things I found out about this Earth, but I not that good at explaining it in great detail. Also, other parallel Earths were shown in that comic, but unfortunately there were no designations shown.
c. The last one is the re-imagined Earth-2, which is introduced in the new title, âEarth 2.â Just like the first Justice League story arc when the relaunch started, the first issue took place five years in the past. Apokolips is the threat once again, but here, Steppenwolf, and not Darkseid, is leading the invasion. Earth-2âs Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman die stopping the invasion, while the Supergirl and Robin of Earth-2 (who become Power Girl and Huntress as will be shown in âWorldsâ Finestâ) follow an unknown person through a Boom Tube and end up stranded in the mainstream universe (at which in this point in time the events of the first arc of the relaunched âAction Comicsâ was taking place). Also, we get see the new younger versions of Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, and Al Pratt before they became the heroes they are supposed to be.
This now leaves the place of at least two pre-Flashpoint parallel Earths within this new DC Multiverse in question (or at least, in my mind, it does):
a. Earth-16 is the first one. While this world was introduced with existing information post-Infinite Crisis, this world was never touched upon again until you ârebootedâ it for the setting for âYoung Justice.â I might say that was the best decision youâve ever made. You may recall from an earlier posting that I asked if you or your co-workers have ever confirmed with the higher-ups at DC Comics on whether or not your interpretation of Earth-16 still exist within the new DC multiverse. Iâll probably find out your response to that particular posting when it comes.
b. Earth-1 is the second one. This parallel Earth is the setting for DC: Earth One graphic novels. Itâs hard to describe, but what I can say is that itâs sort of like the equivalent of Marvel Comicsâ Ultimate Marvel universe (by way of being introduced to new readers, among other things). I think J. Michael Straczynski was the guy who started this parallel DC universe.
Hope you didnât mine me telling you all this. I just felt that you needed to know whatâs been going on in the new DC multiverse.
Thanks for taking the time to read this posting!
Thanks. I haven't always had time to keep current. None of this effects episodes of YJ, which was all locked long ago.
