A Word on Alternate Earths:
DC Comics© used to use the idea of multiple Earths to separate several groups of their heroes (1940s heroes, 1960s heroes, and evil nemeses therof). When they wished to publish new adventures of heroes that others originated, but that they had acquired publishing rights to, the idea was expanded so that each company recieved its own Earth for their heroes to cavort in (for example, Earth-S for the Fawcett heroes, Earth-X for the Quality heroes, etc). For the purposes of my Marvel Super-Heroes© campaigns, I expanded the idea still further, adding several new Earths to the list. However, the list is my own, developed some 15-20 years ago, as of this writing. As such, the list does not match some of the other work available on the Web.

That's okay!

Use this stuff if you want; but please, save the eMails on this particular subject. I know some of the other work out there, and have read (and enjoyed) much of it. But, this is my Site, so my takes on the fictional characters we all know and love are the ones that I will focus on. So, enjoy what is here, and take it all for what it is worth (i.e, a silly little pass-time activity). Think of the spirit that used to exist in the comics themselves, and don't let a non-critical inconsistancy ruin your day. Modify this stuff to fit your own campaign. I won't mind, or complain. Really. Anyway, enjoy.


Earth-1 was the standard, "default" Earth of DC Comics' Silver Age stories. This means that, unless stated explicitly otherwise in the story, it was the setting for nearly all stories from 1955-85. This was the only Earth, I am convinced, that needed to be "cleaned up," continuity-wise, in 1985.

This was the first Earth to be explicitly presented as an "alternate Earth," in the classic Flash of Two Worlds story. The characters themselves were DC's original Golden Age heroes of the 1940s, which inspired the newer characters of Earth-1. It was also the most well-mapped out of the alternate Earths, thanks largely to the work of Roy Thomas.

This is the requisite "backworld," where everyone who is good on one Earth has an evil counter-part. It only appeared in a handful of stories, so there is lots of room to make it your own -- just keep in mind that the metaphysics of this place seem to be geared toward evil.
