not sure where it fits in but there is Tangent Comics, they have a lot of Dc characters with entirely different looks and powers.

example: Superman is a normal human that is evolving superpowers and the Green Lantern is a girl that has a magical Lantern that can bring people back from the dead.

wish I could help, but since I don't read much from DC or at least havn't in ten years, I know nothing, by the Summer of 2008, I plan to read more DC, maybe this will help me understand the DC Universe.

hopefully by the end of 52 i'll have the full multiverse mapped out

i think they say a few in Inite Crisis #1

Last month's Wizard had a two page article. The ones listed were New Earth (as the main DCU), then 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 17, 22, 34, and 50 like in the link that fesak gave. Not sure if the other ones are 100% accurate by DC's standards. Wizard made a point to say that without those 11, that leaves 41 universes yet to be explored. To me that sounds like the Vertigo universe, etc may not be set in stone.

#25 Posted by Maverick_GL5.0 (30 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe this will help. I found over on DC Countdown Boards. Credit goes to Munkeypunk:

New Earth All currently published superheroes and villains.

* After the destruction of Alexander Luthor's Multiverse Tower in Infinite Crisis, the parallel Earths that had been created merged into a new single world, "New Earth." New Earth is currently the core existence of the DC Universe.

Infinite Crisis #6 (2006)

Earth-1 Unknown.

* In 52 Week 52 (2007), Rip Hunter mentions that New Earth and Earth-1 are separate universes.

Pending publication.

* Resembles the pre-Crisis Earth-Two.* This Earth's Power Girl and Superman are missing.

52 Week 52 (2007)

Earth-3 Post-52 The Crime Society of America and the Jokester.

* Resembles the pre-Crisis Earth-Three and the Antimatter Earth.* Solicitations referred to it as the "Crime Syndicate", but later it is referred to as a "Golden Age" "Crime Society" which coexists with the Anti-Matter Earth's Crime Syndicate.* Other comments refer to it as being a "world full of evil doppelgängers of Earth-2."

52 Week 52 (2007) (cameo) Countdown #32 (2007) (full)

Earth-4 Alternate versions of the characters purchased from Charlton Comics such as Captain Atom, Blue Beetle, Nightshade, Peacemaker, The Question and Judomaster.

People are separated by genetics and those with the strongest genes are taken away and made to breed with others while those with the weakest genes are killed.

52 Week 52 (2007) (Cameo) Countdown To Adventure #2 (2007) (Full)

Earth-12 Characters shown in Batman Beyond.

The Countdown: Arena website later suggested the official designation to be Earth-12.* Batman Beyond is a part of the DC animated universe, a cohesive universe of several animated series based on DC Comics properties, such as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited and others.

Pending publication.

Earth-13 Alternate versions of characters shown in some Vertigo Comics titles.

* Existence of this reality based solely on information from interview involving Keith Champagne. Champagne claimed a vague recollection of Dan Didio's complete Multiverse and said that Earth-13 was "Vertigo, sort of"* Notable is that some Vertigo stories and characters take place in standalone continuity (such as V for Vendetta) and others are part of the main DC Universe (such as Swamp Thing, Hellblazer and Black Orchid) but rarely appear in mainstream publications.

Don't want to confuse anyone but there is a Batman Beyond universe in the new Multiverse. Also there is a possibility of a Dark Knight Returns universe which has well: All Star Batman, Batman/Spwan, Holy Terror Batman and other issues written by Frank Miller. It's just speulation but I did see a comic panel with Batazrro and Batman Beyond Terry McGinnis.
