I am practically in love with the DC Multiverse! So many different stories and versions of characters impress and challenge the imagination of the reader. What if the League was evil? Hop on over to Earth-3 and take a look. What if they were born in Victorian England? Join Earth 19's Wonder Woman and Batman to learn! The lovers of the Multiverse were given a gift from the brilliant Grant Morrison with his most recent series: THE MULTIVERSITY! We have seen a map of this multiverse, and in January, a guidebook to the crazy multiverse that makes up DC comics was released to the public. However, in both the map and the book, there was a missing piece...actually SEVEN missing pieces. There were 7 earths that were kept hidden! In this week's Fanboy Theories, I am going to explain what I think these hidden earths could be.
Earth 14: Injustice
Earth 24: Batman Miller-Verse
Earth 27: Smallville
To those who haven't heard, the next DC Animated Movie is an Elseworld's story that revolves around a more volatile and violent Justice League. The members are Superman(The Son of Zod raised by a Mexican immigrant farming couple), Wonder Woman(Bekka of the New Gods), and Batman(Kirk Langstrom, a Vampire-esque version rather than Man-Bat). For this story, Bruce Timm(The brilliant mind behind the DC Animated Universe) has announced that there will be comics centered around their world(specifically a series for each of the members leading into a team up), an action figure line, as well as a three part miniseries called Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles on the Machinima website which apparently lead into the movie...This seems like a LOT of work put into just an elseworld, doesn't it? This is an interesting take on the league, created by a man who made some of the greatest animated series of all time. This is a relatively new development, but its still a fun theory to be in the multiverse.
If you haven't had a chance to read the hilarious exploits of the Justice League 3000, but its been one heck of a ride so far. We are introduced to new versions of some of the greatest heroes, coming up with some humorous situations. We learn after the first volume however Ted Kord and Booster Gold are present in the future, after being found frozen...Ted Kord also talks about Elongated Man and Maxwell Lord...All three supposedly either written out of continuity or haven't been fully stepped into their roles in the case of Kord. Also if this was the future Earth-0, that makes THREE Boosters on this earth, as he makes no reference to the other Booster, and doesn't know Kord. This has to be a different earth from the norm, and by extension SOMEWHERE in the multiverse. There is just one tiny inconsistency that could debunk this earth...Isn't Darkseid supposed to be the same everywhere since he's a god? If so, WHY IS HE A HEAD IN A JAR!
Were you honestly surprised? This universe grows bigger and bigger every year with new episodes, in-between season comics, even new shows. We started off with the "retold" origins of the Arrow, but by the middle of the second season, this earth steps up to the multiversal bat. In the very first episode of their second series, The Flash, a traveller from the future shows on a newspaper that there was a "Crisis" and "Red Skies"...This earth is going to be in a multiversal crisis in 10 years... We see Barry grow in the past year and now he is able to time travel! It's only a matter of time till he travels not forwards or backwards, but sideways...TO ANOTHER EARTH!
As I stated last week, this is just my theories on the hidden multiverse earths. If you have an opinion on my theories, or your own theories on the hidden earths, leave a comment below and I'll seeya all later!
