Earth-154 and Earth-216 are closely related alternate realities best known for being home to Superman Jr. and Batman Jr., the Super-Sons.

There were slight differences between Earth-154 and Earth-216:

  • The names of Batman and Superman's wives were known on Earth-154: Kathy Kane and Lois Lane.
  • Superman had graying temples on Earth-154 by the time his son reached his teens, he didn't seem to have aged on Earth-216.
  • Flying cars were common on Earth-154 by the time Batman and Superman's sons reached their teens while technology was much the same as the real world 1970s on Earth-216.
  • Batman was such a popular hero on Earth-154 that so teenagers wear Batman costumes that Bruce thinks nothing about his son going out in costume sans mask. There is nothing shown on Earth-216 even remotely resembling this.

The events of Earth-216 were duplicated in a computer simulation where Superman and Batman did not create a mother figure for their offsprings.[1]

It was later established that that Earth-216 was a hypertime reality and therefore wasn't destroyed in the Crisis on Infinite Earths event.[2]

Since Convergence prevented the destruction of DC's multiverse it can be assumed that if Earth-154 was destroyed in Crisis on Infinite Earths it was restored to existence.



  • Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium identifies Earth-154 as the original universe featured in World's Finest #154 and Earth-216 as the "Super-Sons Earth" which first appeared in World's Finest #215. However, for indexing purposes, the DC Database has chosen to use Earth-154 as the main universe designation for the stories featuring Batman, Superman and their offspring. It is considered that this "merger" doesn't affect continuity since there are no indicators that both Earths contradict their respective timelines.
  • A duplicate recreation of the Earth-154 Super-Sons' Universe was created during the Infinite Crisis. This recreation and all of its inhabitants were destroyed at the end of the Infinite Crisis.
  • There was another reality (Earth-391) where Superman and Batman had sons but events clearly show it was not related to either Earth-154 or Earth-216.
