Earth is the homeworld of humanity and though at times dismissed by other "more advanced" worlds as a backwater planet, Earth has often found itself the center of events concerning the very fate of reality itself.
These reality-changing events, primarily referred to as a "Crisis," have not passed without affecting the Earth and its position in said reality. The reality changes making and unmaking the planet and its history, either as the sole universe or part of a multiverse, itself part of a larger omniverse. To differentiate this Earth amongst the infinite number of variant Earths, designations including "Earth-1," "Earth-0" or "Prime Earth" have been applied though have changed with each successive Crisis event.
In current day, the Earth is 1 AU from the sun, with a sidereal revolution of 365.26 days and a rotation period ("day") of 23.9 hours.
Earth is the keystone of the 52 world multiverse, a nexus of supernatural forces, ofttimes bridge to the Antimatter Universe of Qward and a frequent site of alien invasions due to Earth's unusually high concentration of super-powered beings, both indigineous and extraterrestrial. This has concerned many alien worlds and led to the Dominator-led Alien Alliance invasion.
Starting in the early to mid 20th Century and continuing into the late 20th through early 21st Century, Earth saw an explosion of super-humans. North America saw the highest population of super-humans with comparatively fewer in the Southern Hemisphere. Astronomer and physicist Ted Knight theorized this was due to cosmic rays hitting the North American continent at a greater rate than compared to the rest of the Earth.
