I would agree, the DC Universe "New Earth" is now clutter Earth, with all the characters residing there.

Earth-17 is a weird medieval post-apocalyptic world with armored knights riding albino mutant horses.

Those are the original Atomic Knights, from the "Strange Adventures" series.  And those "mutant horses" are actually giant Dalmations.   Wink  Originally the Knights were survivors of "The Great Atomic War of 1986", but the global catastrophe was later vaguely described as "The Great Disaster".  Kamandi's adventures were also retconned as part of this world.  See:  http://www.toonopedia.com/atomic_k.htm

Booster Gold series sounds promising. I guess Dan Jurgans is revisting his ACCESS character from the Marvel vs. DC series with Booster's new crossing time & dimension thing. Wink

Too late.

So it turns out not only can Superboy-Prime change the fabric of reality by punching a wall, but Mr Mind can actually EAT time.

I guess the modern fan-boys are happy that "Silver Age silliness" is a thing of the past.  Cheesy

Still and all, good to have any multiverse back.  If this means limited series and one-shots set on other Earths, like the Marvel Family Earth, Charlton Earth and that intriguing "Nazi League" Earth, then I'm in.  But if we only see the other Earths in cross-overs with "New Earth" characters, forget it.

Dark Knight Returns

Based on the cover to Booster Gold #1, there's a possibility this is Earth-7.

Two questions: 1-where is Will Eisner's Spirit? on Earth-2 with golden age heroes  or on Earth-5 ? 2- the Earth of Timely-Marvel characters is in those 52 Earths?  And if anyone have a friend in DC comics...please i want my Weisenger silver age earth (Earth 6,like 60s or Earth 50 like 50s are good for me). Thanks.
