UNIVERSES – Marvel’s Earth-616

Getting into comics can seem difficult to the newcomer.  What are the different universes and why are there so many?  Lets look at the Marvel Universe…


Earth-616 is the Marvel’s mainline universe, home of the familiar Marvel characters.


That’s about it.  Marvel hasn’t had all the resets, reboots and continuity changes that DC has.  However, every now and then a story arc temporarily changes it into another universe and there are some alternate futures.

Temporary Changes.

Age of Apocalypse (1995)


The character Legion, son of Professor X tries to kill Magneto in the past, accidentally changing time and temporarily turning Earth-616 into Earth-295.

Amalgam (1996 & 1997)


On two occasions in temporarily merged with the DC Universe (in 1996 & 1997) to create the Amalgam Universe.

Age of X (2001)


Became Earth-11326

House of M (2005)


Professor X and Scarlett Witch combined powers to give mutants what they desired, the world became Earth-58163.
