Which is the earth in which is set Superman vs Wonder Woman? Clark Kent work for Daily Planet,and the editor of Planet is Perry White,and Superman have the last and definitive type of shield logo on the breast.So is sure that is not earth-2. Opinions?

It's the same Earth that Superman battled Ali & Spiderman respectfully in two dollar deluxe formats; Earth-Crossover!

It was Earth-1 of course.

Superman vs Marvel heroes is another Earth.

Given that the battle between Superman and Wonder Woman took place during World War II and that it involved Hitler and the Spear of Destiny, I have to guess that this story took place on Earth-2.

I gotta wonder - was this the first appearance of Albert Einstein in a Superman comic?

Superman vs Mohamed Alý and vs Spiderman and Shazam is earth-1.

At the time, Spiderman was an inhabitant of the Marvel Universe and Captain Marvel lived on Earth-S.  I haven't read the Shazam issue, but I seem to recall that in the Superman/Spiderman crossover, there was no mention of alternate earths - Superman's Metropolis and Spidey's NYC just both existed on Earth.

Kind of odd that he didn't appear in a 70s Maggin comic (or did he?  we haven't got that far in Supermanica).

The earliest ref I can find is "the Einstein connection" from 1986.  And "DC Challenge".

I don't -think- the Spear of Destiny factored into the Superman vs. WW book, but it's been forever since I've read it.  Baron Blitzkrieg (first introduced as an Earth-2 character) and the samurai dude were the villain enemies, and this was around the time that Lynda Carter WW was in the 1940s.  I think the intent was that it was Earth 2 or at least "not Earth 1".
