Chapter 7 The Modern Age Pt-4 (2011-Present) the “New 52” Prime Earth and Earth 2

Click here for Chapter 6

Following a company-wide reboot in 2011, the “52” multiverse ceased to exist. Instead, we have the “New 52” featuring all-new Issue #1 stories set on Prime Earth, Earth 1, Earth 2, etc. New Earth had merged with Earth-13 (Vertigo) and Earth-50 (Wildstorm) in the wake of the Flashpoint event and had its history rewritten as a result, creating The New 52. (DC still published stories set in the “52” Multiverse Earth-1, Earth-16 and Earth-40 after the reboot.)

August 2011 “New 52” (All DC comics reboot at #1)

After Flashpoint V2, The Flash and Pandora altered the timeline and the multiverse was changed. The DC Universe (New Earth), the Vertigo Universe (Earth-13) and the Wildstorm Universe (Earth-50) have merged, bringing in Vertigo characters Constantine, iZombie, Hellblazer, Swamp Thing, Shade, and others, and Wildstorm characters including Voodoo, Grifter, and Midnighter. The main universe now is called “Prime Earth”
