Earth-85 is an alternate universe, first described in Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium. It is inhabited by characters who made their debut post-Crisis, though they were later retconned, making their earlier appearances problematic in terms of the larger continuity.
The primary subjects of this reconciliation attempt are the Captain Marvel of Shazam!: The New Beginning (Volume 1), The Tin Roof Club, and Hawkman of Hawkman (Volume 2) though it also covers material outside those three main subjects.
Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium stated that the following stories/comics were appearances of Earth-85:
- Action Comics #588
- Action Comics #611–614, 623–626
- Batman: Bride of the Demon
- Batman: Brotherhood of the Bat
- Batman: League of Batmen
- Batman: Son of the Demon
- Creature Commandos (Volume 1)
- Detective Comics #569–570
- Hawkman (Volume 2)
- Power of the Atom #4
- Shade, the Changing Man (Volume 2)
- Shazam!: The New Beginning (Volume 1)
- Earth-85 as a "non-canon New Earth" serves the same purpose as Earth-Thirty-Two and Earth-Forty for Earth-One and Earth-Two.
- Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium lists entire issues rather than specific stories in Action Comics Weekly as being Earth-85 stories so it cannot be determined if stories that don't contradict larger continuity told in those issues happened on New Earth, Earth-85, or both.
