There was something about putting the truth on paper, bringing facts into the light of day where everyone could look at them, that made my fingers move faster – it was becoming one of my favorite sensations on earth. ― Lois Lane: Double Down
I'm gonna summarize the whole DC Multiverse AND NO ONE CAN STOP ME
The default universe where the New 52 takes place and stuff
You know those graphic novels written by J. Michael Straczynski, Geoff Johns, and Jeff Lemire that made new young versions of Superman, Batman, and the Teen Titans? That's where this is
The fact they all have "Earth One" in their titles also might've been a clue
It's where Earth 2 took place (hence the name)
It got destroyed by Darkseid, but now the Justice Society heroes have a NEW Earth 2
It's a whole thing
Good is evil, evil is good, and everyone's an asshole
Home to Grant Morrison's Watchmen homage starring the Charleton Comics characters. I like it more than the actual Watchmen because it doesn't have the Comedian.
Home to Captain Marvel. It's essentially a redone version of the Pre-Crisis Earth-S. Also everything is drawn by Cameron Stewart, and that's always a plus.
Home to Stan Lee's "Just Imagine" versions of the DC heroes. Also this Wonder Woman's design is awesome.
A reference to the Marvel Ultimate Universe. The Gentry destroyed it at the start of Multiversity, leaving only Thunderer alive. He's basically Aborigines Thor.
A reference to the normal Marvel Universe. The Hulk equivalent, Behemoth, is blue and wears a diaper.
I don't get it either.
Home to the Tangent Universe created by Dan Jurgens. The character's names are familiar, but their powers and appearances are different. For example, Harvey Dent is the Superman, a being of unmatched mental power. Green Lantern raises the dead. That kind of stuff.
Kal-L is raised by Hitler and helps conquer the world. Uncle Sam reemerges years later to kick his ass.
The gender swapped universe, with Superwoman, Batwoman, and Wonderous Man, who has a very spiffy cape.
Remember Batman The Animated Series, Justice League, and Batman Beyond? This is where all of that took place.
A universe where magic is the dominant power. The Superman equivalent here is Superdemon, who is basically Etrigan with Superman's powers. Which is awesome.
It USED to be the perfect Earth until Superboy-Prime had a temper tantrum back in Countdown and blew it the f*ck up. Now all that's left is a Green Lantern battery called the Cosmic Grail.
Superman basically ended all crime right before he died and left his robot army to guard the planet, so the current generation of heroes are kinda bored.
Some dumbass pressed the big red button in 1963, and the world got nuked. Now the Atomic Knights of Justice have to ride their giant dogs around and try not to get killed by Darkseid.
A slightly different version of the Justice Riders universe. They have a telegraph Internet.
Home to the stories Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and Wonder Woman: Amazonia.
Home to Doc Fate and the Secret Society of Superheroes. Also I want to cosplay as Doc Fate or the Mighty Atom. Because they both look cool.
Home to the characters from A New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke.
Home of the characters from Mark Waid and Alex Ross' Kingdom Come. You should read it, by the way.
Where all the heroes are black and Batman's the token white guy. Also Superman is president.
Earths 24 and 25 are unknown.
Home of Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew. It operates on cartoon physics.
Earth-27 and Earth-28 are unknown.
The Bizarroverse. It am not opposite of normal universe at all. It am completely normal.
Home of the characters from Superman: Red Son. Which I also recommend.
Everyone's a pirate.
Home of Aquaflash, Bat-Lantern, Wonderhawk, Black Arrow, and Supermartian.
The real world.
A reference to Astro City. Also Bruce Wayne was inspired by a stingray in this universe.
A reference to Image Comics' Supreme. Also Bruce was inspired by an owl this time.
Home to Justice 9, who are homages to Big Bang Comics. This Bruce was inspired by a suit of armor.
It starts as Batman: Thrillkiller, but then it gets really weird. I'm not sure what it becomes.
Where Superman and Batman: Generations takes place. The characters there age in real time.
A reference to T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents.
The evil version of Earth-20. Also Sinestro wears a very nice suit.
A reference to early Image Comics, although thankfully Liefeld isn't involved. Also I really like their Wonder Woman's design.
Full of adorable chibi version of the DC heroes and villains who are actually robot minions of the Empty Hand.
All the superheroes are vampires. Also this is the only other Earth besides Earth-3 to have an Ultraman instead of Superman.
All the heroes are robots.
Home of Superdoomsday, who is what happens when a clearly evil corporations turns Superman into an antihero.
Earth-46 is unknown.
Home to the Love Syndicate of Dreamworld (Sunshine Superman, Magic Lantern, and Speed Freak) Grant Morrison made in Animal Man years ago. Also home to Brother Power the Geek, a Bruce Wayne who was inspired by a shooting star, and Prez.
This world is basically every comic book cliche multiplied by a million. They have super-FOOD here, for crying out loud.
Earth-49 is unknown.
Remember the Justice Lords from that one episode of Justice League? This is where they're from.
Where all of Jack Kirby's DC creations live. Kamandi, OMAC, and the New Gods all live here.
Sormik week day 6! Woohoo! I’m back. No baby Sormiks this time, but have all the more fluff. This one is for @amarietie/ @tmariea for Storms in Our Blood. Today’s theme is “Lastonbell—Promises/Acceptance”, and although this scene indeed takes place in Elysia and has nothing to do with the Lastonbell promise, I figured the prompt was as good as any to do a marriage proposal. I… I went over the top with the cheesiness, didn’t I? *hides* The layers have fancy names to distract from the ridiculous romance going on here. Like “background panels”, background background”, “fucking rain”, “fucking lightning”, “rainy bits” and “rainy muchs”.
Anyway, I’m sorry this is so rushed, but I hope it gets the idea across just fine! I really really hope you like it, Mari! :,) This is my little thanks for your kind words and deeds for me, and for your Earth Armatus Rose occasionally saving my ass in ToLink, hoho. HAPPY SEVERAL MONTHS LATE BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING
For everyone else: go read the story, it includes more artistic use of seraphic artes, and more kisses in the rain, if that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what to tell you
Harley is aware of the numerous/alternate time lines and sometimes gets them mixed up. She once called Zatanna to ask her how she and Constantine were fairing with their adoptive daughter, Raven (Bombshells). She got really confused and thought it was a prank, Harley realized her mistake and said, “Whoops, wrong universe."
I was re-watching Say Uncle recently since the show is coming back in two weeks and I really don’t have a lot going on while I’m looking for a job. Now, as I was watching through it something caught my eye that made my theory senses tingle.
Obviously, Say Uncle isn’t canon, but the fact of the matter is that it exists, so if it’s not explicitly canon it is at the very least a part of it’s own canon: an alternate universe where the events of SU still take place up until that point, but in which Say Uncle is canon as well
Now back to what I saw that piqued my interest. The frames were brief but there was enough time to pick out a list of individuals who Uncle Grandpa had helped out prior to the episode
For the sake of brevity I’m not going to include all of the, but among those listed are characters from Dexters Lab, the Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd ‘n Eddy, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.Basically, Uncle Grandpa has met with pretty much every Cartoon Network character since the mid 90′s.From this we can conclude that this episode’s universe overlaps in some way or another with the multiverses of each of these shows, and this is huge news, because it means the things those shows overlap with are are also in the same multiverse.
For the first branch, let’s go with Billy and Mandy, because that’s the smaller one and when I say this is huge I’m not exaggerating. If anything i’m endaggerating, this shit is goddamn brobdingnagian.
Now, this should go without saying for those of you who watched this growing up, but for those of you who didn’t or just don’t remember very well, but Billy and Mandy takes place the the Lovecraft Mythos, with Billy having summoned both Cthulhu and Yog’Sothoth at different points in the show. The Lovecraft mythos, which has been added to by horror writers for almost a century is nothing short of enormous. Even non-horror series have had Cthulhu appear before, including South Park, Rick and Morty, and Gravity Falls (the last two of those also intersect with each other directly, as Grunkle Stan’s mug entered a portal in the latter, only to emerge from one of rick’s portals in the former)
At this point ladies, gentlemen and assorted third parties, we are no longer in the mere scope of Steven Universe, but if you thought we were done here, you’ve got a whole other thing coming. I’ll leave Gravity Falls for later, because what it connects to is kind of the cherry on top of everything for me.
Okay, Powerpuff Girls. Where is this going to go you may be wondering? Well fucking watch this
Okay, wait, please come back!
I know, I know, the nu!PPG and TTG are probably the most hated cartoons on the planet right now but let’s be real here. This isn’t the first time the Powerpuff Girls and DC comics have overlapped. The girls met the Justice League in the original series (along with Major Glory from Dexter’s Lab), and DC has been producing the PPG comics for years now. This is just the only image I could find that has both on screen together, and this is where things get interesting
The DC comics multiverse, home of Superman, Wonder Woman, and every iconic super hero or heroine who’s had a god awful movie in the past few years, is massive, and has crossed over with almost every huge universe in some way or another. Hell, even Marvel is in there. Deadpool and Deathstroke are canonically different versions of the same guy.
You realize what this means don’t you? Your LarsXTony Stark slash fic is canonically viable! Also this thing is only still growing. As of late, DC has added the Watchmen to the total canon
And the silver age batman has met Scooby Doo.
As of Mystery Incorporated, all Hanna Barberra cartoons such as the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Johnny Quest and even The Venture Bros are part of the same multiverse, which means that what we were calling the “Steven Multiverse” now includes all of DC, Marvel, Cartoon Network, the Lovecraft Mythos (including the works of Stephen King). And can you believe we still have more?
Duck Dodgers is an honorary Green Lantern, which at this point may not even phase you, but once Warner Brothers gets added to the mix, things star getting weird, and mind you, this is weirdness in a multiverse where Steven Universe exists somewhere alongside Rorshach.
See, with the introduction of the Warner Brothers and all they entail, we now have to contend with the world of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, where Daffy Duck appears alongside Donald as an actor portraying his cartoon self, which just raises more questions about this megaverse’s own ontology. Who the fuck expected to be gaslighted by Jessica Rabbit?
If it’s any consolation, the megaverse doesn’t give a fuck, since now that Disney is in there, we can add in Final Fantasy by way of Kingdom Hearts
At this point this has just gotten ridiculous. Between Steven Universe, Kingdom Hearts, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty the Powerpuff Girls, and lord knows what else, half the fucking fandoms on this shitty website now take place in the same universe. For fuck’s sake, Space Jam and Steven King’s IT now take place in the same multiverse! At this point, the only thing left to do is give you that cherry on top I promised in the beginning.
Remember how I mentioned I was saving Gravity Falls for last? Well, here’s the fucking roots of the iceberg. See, this show isn’t the only place where Gravity Falls appears. It’s a minor detail snuck in by a background artist and found by a redditor, but there is one last map on which gravity falls is marked, and it’s found on the wall of noted conspiracy theorist…
wait for it…
Jude Harley, from Hiveswap, the long-awaited Homestuck game due to come out next January. Yes, you heard me, Homestuck’s in there too!
