The High Evolutionary created the first version of Counter-Earth as a purer version of the original Earth. As in so many myths, however, an evil force (in the person of the Man-Beast) jogged his elbow. Counter-Earth turned out to be a lot like the original, except that there were no super-heroes. Dismayed, the High Evolutionary sent Warlock to his world to straighten it out.[2]

The High Evolutionary placed Counter-Earth a micro-second out of dimensional synch to hide it from Earth. Counter Earth was eventually stolen by the alien Sphinxor, on the orders of a fantastically powerful alien race called the Beyonders, who placed it in a museum.[3] When fighting against They, Warlock discovered that Thanos destroyed Counter-Earth when he had the Infinity Gauntlet in his possession.[4]

Under unknown circumstances, Counter-Earth resurfaced, now exclusively inhabited by the New Men.[5]



  • Counter-Earth was surrounded by a Time-Lag Barrier that separates Counter-Earth from the Original Earth.[6]
  • By existing out of phase on a different vibrational frequency from the regular Earth, the Counter-Earth also avoids affecting the balance of the Solar System.[1]
  • Due to the High Evolutionary's preachment, the inhabitants of Counter-Earth regard their planet as the prime "Earth," whereas the original is to them the Counter-Earth.[1]
