  1. When did Earth-8 get destroyed? Was this earlier in JLA?

    1. It was one of the Earths that The Gentry went after in Grant Morrison's The Multiversity

  2. Wasn't that Earth-7 (the equivalent of the Ultimate Marvel universe)? Thunderer (the Thor analogue) was the only one to survive from that world, but I thought Earth-8 (the equivalent of the main Marvel universe) survived. Maybe I was wrong. I haven't read Multiversity in months.

    1. flipping through it again, it does look like there was a lot of damage done to the city when they were fighting on Earth-8 in the last issue of Multiversity. A but a bunch of people from that world definitely survived, though i am not sure about how much the Gentry destroyed. Since we really only see the rubble/ wreckage in that local area I'm not sure how widespread the damage was.

    2. Yeah, I haven't read it since it came out and was really under the impression that the Gentry wiped it out, but I could just be basing the the destruction on what we saw and exaggerating it. Havok shouldn't have survived though.

    3. yeah, he got shot in the head by Not-Hawkeye, and then looked into a cosmic egg or something and appeared to die. I guess he got better?
