At San Diego Comic Con, and in cooperation with Entertainment Weekly, DC Comics released the Map of the Multiverse, a wild, multi-tiered schematic for how all the realms and 52 Earths interact. Click below to view the image at full, high resolution size.



Included in the map are 52 earths, numbered from 0 to 51, as well as realms that DC Comics fans have never seen portrayed in relationship to the Multiverse before, such as:

  • Apokolips and New Genesis,
  • Heaven and Hell
  • Dream and Nightmare
  • The Underworld and Skyland (home to the Olympian Gods)
  • The Source Wall
  • The Speed Force
  • Limbo
  • The Rock of Eternity
  • Wonderworld
  • The Realms of the Lords of Order and Chaos
  • The Bleed

While all the earths will be named (except 7, which are being left open for future creators) and referenced in the Multiversity series guidebook, the nature of the following earths has been confirmed:
