The Marvel Universe is in an alternate multiverse which has its own series of superpowered beings, such as the cosmic radiation powered family the Fantastic Four, the hard-luck, wall-crawling web-slinger Spider-Man, the mutant X-Men that defend a world which hates and fears them, and the union of their Earth's mightiest heroes, the Avengers.

Some denizens of the DC Universe have encountered beings from, or have traveled to, these Marvel universes.[1] The Justice League met The Avengers from the Marvel universe during an adventure involving Krona.

It is the primary Marvel universe and is sometimes designated as the Earth-616 universe by its own natives. During one instance, the primary Marvel universe was combined briefly with New Earth to form the Amalgam Universe, in which superpowered beings from each universe were merged into beings with characteristics from both (e.g., Super-Soldier, a merger of Superman's cells and Captain America).[2]

History: The following is a bulleted list of historical events that took place between the Marvel Universe and the DC Universe.

Differences with the Marvel Earth

  • There is no recognized analog to the Speed Force in the Marvel universes. The Flash, having traveled to the Marvel Universe with his powers, found it difficult to maintain its internal vibrations in order to remain there due to the absence of Speed force.[4] Hence most speedsters in the Marvel Universe are usually not able to attain lightspeed directly, unless they exist as, or are able to convert into, light particle beings such as the female Captain Marvel.
  • Chaos Magic is much less powerful in the temporarily shared Marvel universe.[3]
  • There were considerably fewer active heroes during World War II on Marvel Earth (A logical reasoning if you compare the number of All-Star Squadron members with those of the Invaders and All-Winners Squad).
  • The Marvel counterpart of Adolf Hitler was killed by Human Torch [5], and resurrected by Zola as the Hate-Monger.
