Universe-#?[]

If a boatload of 'Imaginary Stories' have been retconned into numbered Pre-Crisis Universes and even the DCAU gets acknowledged as Earth-992. So what is this one? We can't let Marvel keep kicking our butts on Multiverse Management. Some member of this community has got to know. And that universe designation should be included either in History and/or Notes. --Earth-742 (talk) 01:45, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

I've yet to see an official source for 992 (though the Superboy TV series is confirmed as 988). There is no official designation for this, just like pretty much every other adaptation, and the majority of Elseworlds. Our opinions on this matter do not matter. --Tupka217 01:57, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, Tupka. Though I have yet to lay eyes upon, let alone purchase, Absolute Crisis on Infinite Earths I would suspect it is there. It is cited for all of the Imaginary Stories I've seen retconned into Pre-Crisis universes now destroyed. I've also seen many Elseworlds now indexed here with Earth-# designations. I came across 992 for DCAU on the Elseworlds Versions of Batman page of the Batman wikia. Thanks for mentioning the Superboy TV series is confirmed as 988!! I'll add it to my list! --Earth-742 (talk) 03:43, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
The list is here. No 992. --Tupka217 10:42, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again, Tupka! That will help me a lot! As typical of DC, they are dropping odd bits in various publications (seeming at random). I think the Super Friends was cited as listed as 508 in The Essential Wonder Woman Encyclopedia. Go fig, right? --Earth-742 (talk) 22:01, February 24, 2015 (UTC)
DC Super Friends Vol 1, the 2000s series. AbsCOIE (and EWWE) treat the old Super Friends as more or less Earth-One. I've got a collection of (crappy) scans from EWWE on multiverse here. --Tupka217 22:05, February 24, 2015 (UTC)
