Earth-162 was an alternate dimension in the Pre-Crisis Multiverse.


After being scolded by the Kandorians for failing to live up to his many goals (enlarge them, cure Kryptonite, end crime etc.), Superman used a machine he devised powered by the various forms of Kryptonite in order to increase his intellect a hundredfold in order to complete his tasks; it succeeded, but also split him into two near-identical beings, Superman-Red and Superman-Blue. Together, they created a New Krypton from the remains of the old and enlarged Kandor on it, created an anti-evil ray which ended all villainous tendencies — the use of which caused a reformed Lex Luthor to develop a panacea that cured all physical ailments and defects — and transformed their Earth into a paradise. Retiring, Superman-Red married Lois Lane and moved with her to New Krypton, while Superman-Blue wed and remained on Earth with Lana Lang, devoting his life to science and tasking his Superman Robots with solving any future natural disasters.

Superman's friend Batman also split himself into two beings to make his crusade against crime more efficient.

This universe was presumably destroyed during the Crisis on Infinite Earths and then (presumably) retroactively saved from destruction during the Convergence event. If it wasn't restored by Convergence, it was definitely restored in the Dark Crisis when Pariah recreated the infinite Multiverse.[1]
