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

History

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.[1] Superman tried containing the situation and confronted his enemies, however he slayed Captain Marvel instead of sparing him, while a nuclear blast killed many of his fellow heroes. This caused him to become a pseudo-authoratarian figure, taking up the responsibility of chasing and if need be, putting down any threats. The Sons and Daughters of the Bat, inspired by Batman, opposed him.

Its heroes would come to aid in protecting the Multiverse against The Gentry.[2] It was later revealed to be one of the many universes destroyed by Perpetua.[3]

Notes

  • This Earth is based on Mark Waid and Alex Ross' Kingdom Come, and is based on 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.
