Details about the nature and make-up of the parallel Earth 2 in the DC New 52 Universe are scarce ("There are new characters, new enemies and new conflicts," says DC), with only Paul Levitz so far providing anything in the way of details in discussing his upcoming Earth 2-centric series Worlds' Finest. But Thursday morning through DC Comics writer James Robinson provided a few more brief details regarding his May-debuting series with artist Nicola Scott, Earth 2.“I’m excited and eager to let people know all the facts about the new Earth 2 comic, but for now I have to remain vague,” teased Robinson to DC Comics.com. “Earth 2 is a world that’s very like our own, but at the same time vastly different. It has known great conflict and danger…a dark menace defeated but at a great cost both to the Earth and to its superheroes of that time. Now, in the present as new menaces emerge to attack the Earth, so new heroes must emerge too, learning to work as a team (or perhaps Society is a better word) while facing these new threats head-on. Who are these heroes? Will their powers include speed, bestial fury, and maybe even green light? Wait and see.” Look for more details as they emerge.
