View full history
The Supermen of the Multiverse are an army of alternate versions of Superman, gathered together by the Captain Marvel of Earth-5 and the Question in the Ultima Thule to fight against Mandrakk the Dark Monitor. The Supermen are able to overcome the vampirized Ultraman and Mandrakk with their solar-based heat vision so that the Green Lantern Corps can stake them. The Supermen also help bring Earth back to its proper place from where Darkseid had drawn it.
Prior to the army being gathered, Captain Marvel, Superman, Captain Atom of Earth-4 and the Ultraman of the Multiverse were gathered by Zillo Valla to combat Mandrakk. The ship they travel in, called the Ultima Thule, is later used by Marvel and the Question to travel to other worlds to recruit Supermen. The Supermen land in Limbo, where Ultraman betrays them and joins with Mandrakk. After Ultraman's defeat, Superman tells Billy to go and gather Supermen, leading to the formation of the Supermen of the Multiverse.
Amongst the members gathered, they include:
- Overman of Earth-10, a world where the Nazi Party won World War II, and the world is now a utopia built upon genocide and suffering.
- The Superman of Earth-30, a world where he is a champion of the Soviet Union.
- General Zod, of Earth-15, who had succeeded Superman as a hero
- Apollo and Mr. Majestic, previously of Earth-50, home to the Wildstorm Universe. Now dwellers of the mainstream DC earth.
- Icon, originally a Superman-type analogue from the Dakotaverse, which was later merged with New Earth.
- President Superman, an African American Superman who is President of the United States on his world.
- Sunshine Superman of the Love Syndicate of Dreamworld, a world based on drug culture of the 1960s and 1970s, previously mentioned in Animal Man.
Other possible members mentioned were characters inspired in Superman analogues from other companies (Marvel, Image, Malibu among them), but there was no confirmation:
Others members of the team visually resembled Ultiman, Omega the Unknown and Realworld's JLA Superman.
