Morrison's Multiverse!

I'm creating this thread with the intent that it will act as both a compendium and reference-source for those interested in Morrison's take on DC cosmology. So without further adieu...


The 52

Thanks, Mike. I welcome any additions to this thread, so long as they are centered around Morrison's Multiverse/cosmology. That being said...

On Earth 51, BiOMAC located numerous RL comics within Darkseid's tomb--a bonafide guide to the history of the DCU. Said comics not only detailed the original discovery of the pre-Crisis Multiverse, but also chronicled the events of:
-Crisis on Infinite Earths
-Zero Hour
-Infinite Crisis
-52/Countdown
-Final Crisis
-Flashpoint

I also wanted to place more emphasis on this panel, as Hypertime was once again referenced as part of DC cosmology:

The above considered, the events of Multiversity do not appear to be set in pre-Flashpoint continuity, as some may have previously thought.

As of now, there isn't a preboot Earth that has been revealed within Morrison's Multiverse. However, there are "7 UNKNOWN WORLDS" among the 52, which reside in Universes: 14, 24, 25, 27, 28, 46, 49. Evidently these Worlds were created by an Inner Chamber of 7 Monitor Magi for a mysterious purpose yet to be revealed:

I honestly have no clue what the Unknown Worlds might be. Only time/future issues will tell...

That's absolutely brilliant. So all those events still happened.

Has the 7 Monitor Magi appeared, yet? I don't remember. Also, it says WORLDS, so these worlds might not be an alternate earth.

They are earths. They are called Earth 14, Earth 24, etc... Also it's mentioned that 49 is "the most mysterious of 7 unknown Earths". With that said, one of these unknown Earths (14) seems quite intresting and unique as evident by that fact that it is sorta doubled on the map (it's right above Earth 0 on the map). It's opposite is also Bizaroworld which is the only other unusual shaped Earth.

So, if Flash is always at the center of everything and the Speed Force is what chooses the Flashes, what/who is the Speed Force and is it what is ultimately in control?

Great job man.

Thank god Morrison's adding some consistency to this whole shebang. Much needed!

You should try applying this new information when rereading Final Crisis, especially Superman Beyond. Adds a whole new level of flow to it.

Yes. Morrison essentially canonized every major event/continuity DC's ever had. This doesn't mean he'll use them... But he at least recognizes their existence within this event. thumb up

Hard to say... But Libra said the same basic thing about speedsters back in Final Crisis:

I really have no idea why Morrison - along with others that ive seen, like encyclopedias for instance - consider the Barry/Jay meeting as being the issue where the discovery of the multiverse takes place. Not only did Wonder Woman discover it before him in the golden age, but Barry himself, in that same comic book title, goes to another universe/dimension for the first time in Flash #108. Flash #116 even begins having designations for those universes/dimensions. While the "discovery of the multiverse" is credited as happening in Flash #123.

Neither is the concept of alternate versions for that matter. Again, in a flash comic (golden age), All-Flash #11, featured an alternate version of the Flash (Jay, back then) and Joan.

Flash #123 put a link between the golden age and the silver age; establishing that the heroes of the golden age reside on Earth-Two, while the silver age heroes on Earth-One, that's what it did (along with the fact that Jay/Barry became aware of it), but it never discovered the multiverse. The idea that the Flash is at the "center of everything" seems to be forced, tbh.

So, which one is Wildstorm? I was disappointed not to see it in the list.

no.


that classic wonder woman stuff never actually went on to say that what she saw was a universe though--only a twin earth. splitting hairs, maybe, but the grander idea of a SERIES of parallel earths was never entertained at all. other dimensions had been mentioned a few times after that wonder woman story as well--adventures on other worlds for example had the concept of the 4th dimension established.

i think the aspect of that classic flash #123 that has made it so important is the fact that barry actually READ about jay in comics in barry's world. the meta-textual approach was the first of its kind and was enormously original--and really it's the concept morrison has taken to the nth degree with this series.

i think the first ever official designation of earth 1 and 2 didn't happen until the jla/jsa x-over in 1963. garrick was of course part of that jsa team. that was also one of the first BIG events (as they were considered back then) and even used CRISIS in the titles for the first time--CRISIS ON EARTH 1 and CRISIS ON EARTH 2. but it really only had legs because of the flash story imo. gardner fox wrote both the jla story and the earlier flash. no one knows him, but he really was that era's grant morrison. i think that's why morrison went to such lengths as to even SHOW scenes from that flash book AND the x-over in the guidebook. dude KNOWS his history and isn't afraid to acknowledge the work of his predecessors. mucho respect for that alone.

the unknown worlds are a great addition. i also LOVED how he mentioned hyper time in the book a couple times.

this empty hand character seems to be the one responsible for the gentry and everything else. maybe responsible for the speed force? can't wait.

great idea galan. thumb up

So DC is back to being ONE multiverse of 52 universes, with Prime-Earth back to being New Earth?
