Prime Earth, also called Earth-0, DCnU, and simply New 52, is the universe in which acts as DC Comics's current main continuity. Replacing the previous continuity known as New Earth after the Flashpoint event.
Prime Earth was formed by the temporal merging of the disparate New Earth, Vertigo and WildStorm universes, in an effort by Pandora and The Flash to restore the time stream to its intended nature, though the meddling caused various changes to occur.
