Reality names were reused several times. See also Earth-12, Earth 12. Earth-Twelve was a comical universe where a superteam called the Inferior Five lived, as did a version of Plastic Man who was actually the son of the original.
Earth-Twelve also had local versions of most of the major superheroes of Earth-One. Jerry Lewis lived in this universe, where he shared adventures with Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Batman also had a TV series in Earth-Twelve, then his identity was public there.
It was assumed that Earth-Twelve was destroyed during the Crisis on Infinite Earths but that was thrown into doubt when the Atom and Flash of Earth-898 glimpsed the Inferior Five on their way home indicated that the reality (or a very close analog) existed in hypertime.
In any case, Convergence retroactively prevented the destruction of the Pre-Crisis Multiverse but resulted in an "updated" form. How (or even if) this affected Earth-Twelve is unknown.
