Trivia!

It's been a while since we had a trivia thread, so I thought I'd start one up.

I'll start with a nerdy comic book question.

The slogan for DC Comics' Crisis on Infinite Earths was "Worlds Will Live, Worlds Will Die." It was true -- a lot of worlds died. But there were survivors, so here's the question: Characters from how many different Earths (and which Earths) survived the Crisis?

I know that characters from at least Earth's 1-2-3 both died and survived.

I'm not sure if there were any more than that though.

Moving to nerd talk.

The question isn't who died -- it's who survived.

We know characters from Earth-1 survived, so that's one.

Characters from Earth-2 also survived, so that's a second.

How many (and which ones) had survivors?

I don't think anyone from Earth 3 survived. If I remember correctly, Earth 3 was being destroyed at the beginning of the first issue, and I don't remember anyone escaping. I think it was mostly Earth 1, 2, X (Quality heroes), S (Fawcett heroes) and maybe Prime? (Superboy from Earth Prime survived anyway, which is kind of strange, because Earth Prime was supposed to be our world, which has no superheroes). Anyway, those remaining worlds combined into one Earth. If I'm remembering this wrong, or if some new info about the Crisis was later revealed that contradicts this (I don't read much DC these days), please correct me.

I might as well give the answer, since this thread has more people making fun of my nerdliness than it has guesses.

Earth-1 (Too many to name, including Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Kid Flash, and Wonder Woman).
Earth-2 (Lots of members of the Justcie Society, including the Flash, Green Lantern, Hourman, and Sandman, as well as others)
Earth-4 (The Charlton characters like Blue Beetle and Captain Atom)
Earth-S (The Fawcett characters like Captain Marvel)
Earth-X (The Quality heroes like Uncle Sam and the Black Condor)

Those are the 5 Earths that were merged in the Crisis. There were also survivors from:

Earth-3 (The young Alexei Luthor survived)
Earth-6 (Lady Quark)
Earth-? (Pariah's unnamed Earth)
Earth-Prime (Superboy)

So I think the total is 9.

Ah, I forgot all about Earth-4, Alexei Luthor, Lady Quark and Pariah. But then again, I haven't read the series in about 15 years. Thanks for the refresher. Maybe I should read them again, as it's been quite a while for me.

Are you sad that your reign is over?
