Notes

  • The Daily Planet was also the name of a column appearing in DC Comics to advertise upcoming projects.
  • Discrepancies between Earth-Two and the actual Golden Age stories caused E. Nelson Bridwell to suggest the existence of an "Alternate Earth-Two" (Earth-Two-A) which was formally canonized in The Official Crisis on Infinite Earths Index (March 1986). Strickly speaking there wasn't an Earth-Two Daily Planet.


Trivia

  • One of the Daily Planet's major stockholders is Bridwell Communications. Bridwell is named after DC editor, E. Nelson Bridwell.
  • In the 31st century, there's a newsfeed called "Daily Planets".
  • In Prime Earth has been revealed its full address for correspondences: The Daily Planet, 2525 Broadway, Metropolis, NY 10025[9]
