The DC Universe (or DCU) is a comic book continuity in which the DC comic books take place. The DC Universe is home to some of comics most prominent and famous superheroes.

Continuity HistoryEdit

The actual creation of the universe is shrouded in mystery, save that it is against the rules of the universe to see its birth due to the dire consequences.  In the early days of the universe, a race of powerful entities was born on the planet Maltus, which had formed their own great civilization.

Publication HistoryEdit

Though DC characters had interacted with each other for a while (starting with New Fun Comics #1), the characters were not actually established as being in the same universe All-Star Comics #3 with the appearance of the Justice Society of America. Sometime in the 1950's, new characters were introduced who would also go onto to live in a shared continuity. Later, it would be established that the Golden Age characters existed in a parallel universe called Earth-Two, which means that characters who were established in the 30's and 40's now had pasts that differed from their first appearances.
