Earth-N52 is one of the many realities in the Multiverse.



In the course of years, this reality saw the rise of a great number of heroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and many others.

At the beginning of the Crisis, the Anti-Monitor unleashed an antimatter wave in order to destroy all the realities in the Multiverse: Earth-N52 was among the very first realities to be reached by the antimatter wall.

Nash Wells, who had just reborn as Pariah, was teleported to this universe in the middle of Heroes Square in Metropolis. He witnessed as the anchorwoman Bethany Snow revealed on TV how the heroes of Earth-N52, who had previously assembled to stop the wave, were annihilated by antimatter.

Pariah tried to rescue a father with his son by protecting them with his new powers: however, he couldn't prevent their demise and was also forced to see this universe die (i.e. get destroyed) before he was teleported again to another universe.[2]

One month later, after the Spectre and Paragons rebooted the Multiverse,[3] Earth-N52 was restored to the existence along with the other destroyed realities.


After the rebirth of the Multiverse, the heroes of this reality were brought back to the existence on the Post-Crisis iteration of Earth-1.[1]
