Earth-3 is a retro-themed reality in the Multiverse, protected by Jay Garrick aka The Flash. Zeppelins are very popular on this Earth.

History

At some point in 20th Century, Jay Garrick became a famous speedster superhero, known as The Flash.

Some time after his rise as villain, the speedster Zoom of Earth-2 travelled to this universe and kidnapped Jay to bring him to his home Earth in order to steal his speed to avoid death. Then, he imprisoned him in his lair and created a time remnant who took Jay's identity as the Flash of Earth-2.

When Zolomon was defeated by Barry Allen, the Flash of Earth-1, Jay Garrick was rescued, regained his identity and returned back home.[1]

After discovering the reality-changing problems caused by the Flashpoint, Barry Allen tried to travel again back in time to change the reality but was pulled out from the Speed Force by Jay Garrick who took him on Earth-3 where he explained him that there could be serious consequences of altering time, discouraging from trying again.[2]

In 2016, The Flash tried to stop a bank robbing operated by his arch-nemesis, the Trickster but was almost killed when the latter activated a time bomb. The Flash of Earth-1 travelled just in time to Earth-3, saving Garrick and explaining him that he wanted his help and advices in taking down his foes, the God of Speed Savitar and his enforcer Alchemy.[3]

Later, when Jay Garrick agreed to stay imprisoned in the Speed Force in order for Wally West to be set free, Jesse Quick came to Earth-3 to become its new protector.[4] Eventually, Jay was freed from the Speed Force and returned back to his universe.[5]

Years later, a now retired Garrick and his wife Joan tracked anti-matter signatures, coming from all over the Multiverse. When the Flash of Earth-1 came to Earth to seek their help after discovering that the Crisis had shifted to 2019, Garrick showed him a map of the Multiverse with his discoveries, suggesting to see what was coming: the Garricks built a neural hyper-collider that projected Barry's mind into the space-time, letting the young hero discover the incoming destruction of the Multiverse.[6]

When the Crisis erupted, this reality was destroyed when an anti-matter wave was unleashed upon it by the Anti-Monitor[7]. After the Paragons rebooted the multiverse, Earth-13 was restored along with the other Earths of the multiverse.[8]

Trivia

  • The retro style of this universe suggests a loosely inspiration from the Pre-Crisis' Earth-Two.
    • The presence of the Garricks, who appeared for the first time on Earth-Two in the comics, also leads in that direction.
