Chapter 5 The Modern Age Part-2 (2006-2007) Post-Infinite-Crisis Multiverse - featuring New Earth

Click here for Chapter 4

Post Infinite Crisis Multiverse to the discovery of the “52” multiverse.

The Multiverse is back. Much of the action during this period still takes place on “New Earth” now sometimes called Earth-0, (called Earth-1 or Prime Earth by some). The period runs from re-creation of the Multiverse in Infinite Crisis to the creation of the “52” Multiverse in the May 2007 final issue of the weekly imprint “52”.

New Earth is a composite of the pre-Crisis Earth-One, the pre-Crisis Earth-Two, the pre-Crisis Earth-Four, the pre-Crisis Earth-S, the pre-Crisis Earth-X, and the Dakotaverse.
