Quote1 Tadahhh! Superman saves the day again. I know he's only a cartoon here -- but mom says there's a whole other universe where he's real! Quote2

The DC Universe is an alternate multiverse within the larger omniverse. Its primordial universe was briefly combined with the Earth-616 reality to form the Amalgam Universe. Citizens native to that reality sometimes refer to their primordial universe as the "New Earth" universe.

The Avengers met a Squadron Supreme-like group called the Justice League of America from this universe during an adventure involving the Grandmaster.

It should not be confused with Earth-Crossover or Earth-74425, in which counterparts to both DC and 616 individuals coexist; with Earth-3839; or with Earth-9047, in which parodic counterparts to both DC and 616 individuals coexist apparently in different pocket dimensions.

New Earth


  • Although Spider-Man and Superman had "met" in previous crossovers, they were part of a separate continuity. The events of Avengers/JLA are thought to be in continuity for Earth-616 and New Earth, as the Krona egg created at the end of the event was shown in a subsequent JLA adventure. Of course, characters from neither company can be shown thinking too clearly about the crossovers, as it would likely be a copyright violation.
  • Numerous figures and settings in the Marvel Multiverse have mimicked aspects seen in this otherwise separate multiverse. This includes both Hyperion and the Sentry's conspicuous resemblance to the main hero of this Earth, the solar-powered alien "Superman", as well as teams like the Squadron Supreme paralleling gatherings in this universe such as this Earth's premiere defensive force, the Justice League (a comparison drawn by Hawkeye), and entire universes such as Earth-31916 (with its own variant version of the Squadron) and Earth-4290001 (guarded by the Great Society) that mirror it.
  • DC Comics (or at least television series based off them) are apparently published in the Marvel Universe. During the first story arch of Runaways the characters referenced the Smallville TV series and later explicitly compared the entrance to the original Hostel (Bronson Canyon) to that of the Batcave in the Adam West Batman show.
