At the end of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the last remaining universes were merged into one and became the current DC Comics Universe. But what if those five Earths were separated after the Crisis and continued on independent of each other? These stories explore what they’d be like.

The time is not long after the Crisis, except that in this continuity the last five universes, having briefly merged during the Crisis, have separated once more. The only parallel Earths to have survived the destruction of the Multiverse are Earths One, Two, X, S, and Four. One exception is Earth-Three, which was absorbed intact by the antimatter universe of Qward, where it now exists. And the humor-based cartoon worlds of Earths C and 12 are actually otherdimensional realms where the laws of comedy (rather than physics) apply.

The Five Earths Project began as a group of five Yahoo! Groups, where we originally posted the first drafts of all stories before they were officially archived here. If you have an idea for a story for any of the groups below, please be sure to read our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) & Guidelines page. Then submit a brief story proposal at the Five Earths Forum.
