First of all, I was happy to see "Earth-0", or Htrae, on the giant cameo page. But something else was interesting to me. There is an earth where the "Superman Family" is battling some sort of Bat-clan. Is this an obscure reference to Alan Moore's "Twilight of the Superheroes?"

Is there anyone here who has read that script and would know that?

I thought exactly the same when i saw that earth.

Even i think they put all those Aztec stuff just to disguise the reference. :lol:

There were some comments on the DC Message Boards mentioning the "Twilight"parallels, and others pointed out Marvel's "Civil War" since Earth-154 + Earth-462 = Earth-616, the homeworld of the Marvel Universe.

See http://superman.nu/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2525&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= for related comments in this forum.

I thought that calling the Bizarro world "Earth-0" was a dig at the 1986-2006 DCU, since fans have been calling the post-Crisis Earth "Earth-0" for quite a while.

During Zero Hero the Post-Crisis Earth died and was reborn as Earth-Zero aka Earth-0 for Zero Hour.

Ah...didn't know that.

Here's a scary thought....Infinite Zero Hour four years from now!

You really think DC can hold a continuity together for 4 whole years before having to reboot?  That alone would be a feat worth seeing.

Really?  That's neat, but I don't remember it.

I was referring to the fact that many people I know were using the "Earth-0" expression long before Zero Hour happened.  They used it as the next logical number in the sequence:  Earth-2, Earth-1, Earth-0...

So now hearing DC try to pass off the current DCU "Earth" as "Earth-1" in Infinite Crisis is extremely jarring.  I don't buy it for a second, because the place is very different than the real (1970-1986) Earth-1.  The Earth with the "real" Superman - the only Superman who never showed up in IC!  It looks like DC is trying to claim that the post-Crisis Superman and the pre-Crisis Superman are one-and-the-same.

That'd be a pretty nifty trick.
