Earth 22 is one of the worlds of the Multiverse in the New 52.


After the retirement of Superman led to the mass surrender of the superheroic old guard, a new generation of superbeings ran amok until the destruction of Kansas forced Kal-El's return. Eventually, after several failed attempts at containing the situation with his new Justice Society of America, nearly leading to a nuclear apocalypse, he and his allies pledged to work with humanity rather than above it to solve the problem.

Its heroes would come to aid in protecting the Multiverse against The Gentry.[1]

It was later revealed to be one of the many universes destroyed by Perpetua.[2]



  • This Earth is based on Mark Waid and Alex Ross' Kingdom Come, and is the direct continuation of the pre-Flashpoint Earth-22 and the pre-Crisis Earth-96.
  • While the continuation of Earth-22, it is unlikely this version of Superman went through the events of Thy Kingdom Come, as Earth 0 has significantly changed since the events of Flashpoint.
  • The existence of the Thom Kallor Starman in this universe indicates that some variation of the Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds event may have occurred in the New 52, as Starman was originally brought to Earth-22 on his way to New Earth in order to prepare for the resurrection of Superboy. However, it may simply be a version of Starman native to this universe.
  • Earth 22 is opposite Earth 7 in the structure of the Multiverse.
  • While he existed on Earth-22, Superboy doesn't appear to exist on Earth 22. When the Justice Society of America encountered Kon-El's Earth 0 counterpart, none of the members recognized him and they were genuinely shocked by his origins.[3]
