Alongside the debut of Grant Morrison’s Multiversity #1 (major spoilers here), and on the same day that Image Comics The Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen remarked on the Muliversity’s “Dino Cop” parody, DC Comics released a video explaining the multiverse map (massive version is here) that was released around SDCC 2014 tied to Multiversity.
Some surprises include:
- Krypton’s Phantom Zone is part of the Underworld that is across the multiverse’s Skyland.
- Skyland is the seat of the Olympus as well as other pantheons noted.
- Beyond the Source Wall is not a further multiverse, but the Source which is the mysterious source of all creation.
With that, the term “known multiverse” appears to mean simply “the multiverse”.
In addition, as we’ve noted before, The Multiversity appears to be part of a broader plan by DC Comics building to some interesting things in 2015:
With that, check out DC’s multiversity map easter eggs video. What struck you about it?
Lastly, if you check out DC’s interactive map of the multiverse you’ll see that you can click on certain Earths and they take you to “character” web-pages for each multiverse Earth. There’s only four accessible Earths, so far, via the preceding DC link: Earth 0, Earth 7, Earth 8 and Earth 23; it is strange that Earth 2 isn’t. Stay tuned for more as The Multiversity progresses.
Thanks for reading. All feedback welcome.
