The Dimension of Dreams is an astral realm created by mankind's subconscious psyche, ruled by the being called Nightmare.[3]

Alternate Universes

Earth-9047 (the Humorverse)

On Earth-9047, The Living Nighty-Nightmare shares his home dimension with ugly beings, thus the location itself is called the Dimension of the Great Unshowered Ones, Realm of the Living Nighty-Nightmare.[4]

In Earth-96173, the dream dimension is known as the lower astral planes. Human dreamers visit this harmless dimension, within and beyond the material plane. However, a powerful sorcerer like Morgan le Fay can trap humans in the dream dimension and send them to the dangerous higher astral planes, from which they could not escape by themselves. When she ensnared college student Clea Lake that way, Lake fell into a coma until she was mystically rescued by Doctor Strange.


In Earth-700029, Emma Frost invented the Dream Machine to allow individuals' conscious access to the Dimension of Dreams. However, the designs were later stolen by Russell Tresh, who used the Dream Machine for subliminal advertising and his own gain. He was eventually stopped by Emma's students, who used the Dream Machine to trap Tresh's consciousness in the Dream Dimension.[5]
