In DC Comics continuity, there is currently a pretty big multiverse. In it, the main earth is Prime Earth. There are a lot of them, like Earth-23 with a black Superman as the president of the United States and the very spooky Earth-13 with Superdemon as its protector.

This seems like very prime-earth-centric terminology. Do other continuities’ inhabitants view their worlds as Earth-0 and as the main world, as far as we know based on comics?

    I believe in one of the CW Flash episodes Harrison Wells from Earth 2 says something along the lines of "you are Earth 2 to us". – Parrotmaster Feb 12 at 8:21
  • For fairness' sake, would you go with something like 'Earth 1', 'Earth Prime', 'Earth A', 'Earth Alpha', etc? – LogicianWithAHat Feb 12 at 12:32

    It struck me as odd in the Flash show when characters would appear and say things like "I'm from Earth-2" or "I'm from Earth-3". How did they even know which Earth they're from? – Raj Feb 12 at 15:19

The only moment I can bring to mind is not strictly DC canon. (But then, after never-ending reboots, what is canon?) The image below is from the epic "Avengers/JLA" crossover event and neither side looks to be conceding to the label of "Earth-Two".
