Earth-18 is one of the many realities in the Multiverse. It is set in the Wild West era and, at least, one Lazarus Pit exists in this world.


At some point in time, Jonah Hex became the owner of a cave in North Dakota with a Lazarus Pit inside.[1]

Earth-18 was depicted on a map of the Multiverse which Jay Garrick showed to Barry Allen.[2]

During the Crisis, after the Anti-Monitor had destroyed countless Earths, Earth-18 housed the last functioning Lazarus Pit in the Multiverse. When Sara Lance, Mia Smoak and John Constantine came to this universe in search for the Pit, Hex confronted them but was overpowered by the heroes: Sara also scarred him; then, they revived Oliver Queen thanks to Pit's waters.[1]

Later that day, this universe was annihilated by an antimatter wave that the Anti-Monitor had previously unleashed into the Multiverse.[3] After the Spectre and the Paragons rebooted the Multiverse, Earth-18 was restored along with all the other destroyed realities.[4]
