Multiverse 101: Welcome To Earth-X

Earth-X has been teased quite a bit this year. Not only did we get a glimpse of it in the trailer for the upcoming CW Seed series Freedom Fighters: The Ray, but this week we learned this year's DC TV crossover would see the villains of this alternate earth invade our world.

In short, Earth-X doesn't seem like a nice place to be. However, we can't help but wonder what exactly is the story behind this alternate reality known as Earth-X...

Created by Len Wein and Dick Dillin, Earth-X first appeared in the pages of Justice League Of America #107 back in October 1973. A parallel world within the Pre-Crisis Multiverse, Earth-X is a world where the German's emerged victorious during World War II.

The Freedom Fighters, originally from Earth-Two, migrated to Earth-X in an effort to help America fight the forces of Adolph Hitler. However, President Roosevelt would end up passing away from a massive heart attack in 1944, leaving the country in such a state that Nazi Germany was able to develop its own arsenal of atomic weaponry.

Despite this terrifying development, neither side was willing to use such destructive means for fear of retaliation by the enemy. This resulted in the remainder of the conflict being fought using conventional warfare, dragging on until the Nazi's were successful in developing mind control technology that allowed them to win the war in 1968.

Despite the victory, some proved to be immune to the effects of the mind control devices, and small resistance pockets began to form in various cities.

Come 1973, members of the Earth-One Justice League and the Earth-Two Justice Society arrived on Earth-X to aid the Freedom Fighters in their fight against the Nazis. In the ensuing conflict, it was revealed that a computer brain had taken control from the Nazis and replaced the leaders with android replicas. While several heroes would perish in the battle, including Red Bee, Plastic Man, Invisible Hood and Red Torpedo, the Freedom Fighters and their allies would eventually emerge victorious.

Like we said above, Earth-X doesn't seem like the nicest place to live, but we can't contain our excitement at seeing this parallel world crossing over with the DC TV Universe this Fall.

Are you looking forward to meeting the villains - and heroes - of Earth-X this season?

Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!

New Godzilla Image Teases King Of The Monsters

Director Mike Dougherty has taken to his official Twitter account to tease a brand new image from the set of the upcoming Godzilla sequel - this one teasing The King Of The Monsters himself.

The new image showcases some sort of cockpit accompanied by a projection of Godzilla appearing on a screen behind it. You can check out the new image posted below...

The new film will follow the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Starring Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, and Aisha Hinds, the Godzilla sequel arrives on the big screen in March 2019 - as the third entry of the ever expanding Monster-Verse.

Russell Tovey Joins The Arrowverse As The Ray

Quantico vet Russell Tovey has joined the ranks of DC's ever expanding Arrowverse.

Tovey has been tapped to play The Ray in the upcoming four-part DC TV crossover event this coming November - which will see the villains of Earth X attack the heroes of our world. Tovey will also voice the heroic character in the upcoming CW Seed animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray.

The official character description for The Ray is as follows:

Raymond “Ray” Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a “genetic light bomb.” The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists.

The character first appeared in 1973, but the show's version will more closely resemble the hero seen in DC’s Multiversity series. Freedom Fighters: The Ray will debut on The CW’s digital channel later this year. Fans will meet the new hero during the four-part DC TV crossover airing Monday, November 27th and Tuesday, November 28th.
