The Amalgam Universe, also known as Earth-496 and Earth 1996, is a parallel universe created and destroyed as a result of a cross-multiversal conflict between warring cosmic beings.


When two entities known as the Brothers (the embodiments of both the Marvel and DC Multiverses) remembered each other's existence, they pitted combatants from their respective realities together. The winner would then destroy the loser (and its own respective multiverse). To prevent this from happening, the Living Tribunal and the Spectre joined forces and combined the two universes together, creating the Amalgam Universe. This universe had its own unique history which was a combination of both multiverses.

With the help of the hero named Access, the Living Tribunal and the Spectre managed to separate the two realities once more and the Amalgam Universe ceased to exist. Later, one of its heroes, Doctor Strangefate, would return and attempt to revive it and, while Strangefate was defeated, it would ultimately be allowed to continue in its own pocket reality, which was given to Access for safekeeping.[1]

The Amalgam Universe currently exists as part of the new infinite Multiverse created by Pariah during the Dark Crisis.[2]
