Description

After the conclusion of Crisis on Infinite Earths, the concept of a single Universe containing most elements of the "surviving Earths" was established and heavily enforced to avoid the continuity problems of the Multiverse. However, alternate realities that affected the new DC Universe appeared very quickly. In Superman Vol.2 #8, a Universe inside the Universe was revealed to have been created to preserve the Legion of Super Heroes' 30th century in New Earth. This world was used to allow crossovers with certain characters of the Legion of Super-Heroes and recreate characters that otherwise couldn't exist in the new continuity (such as Kryptonians, as in the New Earth Superman was the only survivor of Krypton). Alternate timelines were also used, the most notable event being Armageddon 2001 in 1991. An Antimatter Universe existed as well, which had some "reversed" events in a similar way as the former Earth-Three. The Earth within this Universe was called "Earth 2". In addition, there was a Limbo, where some heroes and characters that could not be brought back to "existence" after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, lived outside the Universe. An important rule in the new DC Universe was that there could only be one timeline, so any change caused by time travelers caused the destruction of their timelines of origin. Changes in the past were often "fixed" or have to comply with the present to prevent continuity errors. The need to publish stories outside the strict DC Universe continuity led to the creation of certain DC imprints. Stories that set DC characters in different situations after the Crisis On Infinite Earths, were published by DC Comics under the Elseworlds imprint. None of these stories were ever to be included in the "real" continuity of the DC Universe. In 1999, the unexpected and overwhelming success of Elseworlds's Kingdom Come and other stories, led to the creation of the concept known as Hypertime in order to publish crossovers with those characters and the mainstream continuity. This structure gave "existence" to alternate timelines, stories in Elseworlds, appearances in other media and any other appearance of DC characters in the past. The main timeline or "Central Timeline" was like a river and all of the alternate stories were branches of it. Hypertime was similar to the former Multiverse as it allowed each and every reality ever published to co-exist and interact as most branches tend to return to the original stream (explaining some retcons as well as crossovers). However, all realities existed within only one Universe. ***PLEASE "Thumbs UP", SUBSCRIBE & SHARE*** http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=mushedroom interested in more cool toys??? check out my 2014 comic con SDCC EXCLUSIVES HERE: https://www.youtube.com/user/mushedroom/playlists if you like Transformers: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlZthKzokMp_XJHvVuHQa6mUX0-RnqXjk for more QUICKIE CAR REVIEWS... check my QUICKIE CAR REVIEWS playlist: http://goo.gl/SXTaUA for more HOT WHEELS CASE UNBOXING VIDS... check my CASE UNBOXING vids playlist: http://goo.gl/omtCS4 if you like Lego: check out my lego playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlZthKzokMp_Or2hwW5cQbhaWBP9uRHhH if you like STAR WARS: CHECK OUT my Star Wars play list: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlZthKzokMp9ZYRQAiLTEiM3fZ6FQTifL if you like TRASH PACKS: check out my Trash Packs Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlZthKzokMp-R_CJ1kgD7Y3pTu5DUHjuT
