HistoryEdit

Earth-818793 is the universe in which most of the comics published by Dynamite Entertainment are set in.

NotesEdit

  • Earth-818793 could be considered Dynamite's equivalent of Marvel's Earth-616 or DC's Prime Earth/New Earth.

TriviaEdit

  • Earth-818793 is also home to some non-Dynamite licensed characters, courtesy of Dynamite's many crossovers with other publishers. Examples include Lara Croft, Witchblade, The Darkness (all Top Cow/Image), Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees (both DC/Wildstorm), and Cassie Hack (Devil's Due and later Image). Some crossovers (including Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness) do not exist within this universe.
  • The Top Cow Universe (or a variation of it) and Earth-818793 appear to be the same as some of the events of Army of Darkness follow on from Monster War.
  • Earth-818793 was named by Marvel Comics when Ash Williams met the Marvel Zombies in the Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness limited series. Although Ash's home universe wasn't mentioned by number in the crossover itself, it was given it's official number in the Marvel Zombies: The Book of Angels, Demons & Various Monstrosities handbook. The Earth's number itself follows Marvel's tradition of numbering it's universes after significant "real world" dates, 818793 represents the years that the films that make up the original Evil Dead trilogy were released: 81 (The Evil Dead), 87 (Evil Dead 2), and 93 (Army of Darkness).
  • Earth-818793's history has been altered on multiple occasions thanks to the actions (or sometimes lack thereof) of Ash Williams. The first instance of Ash re-writing history (and the one that caused the most significant changes) occurred in the second volume of Army of Darkness, where he had completely undone everything that had happened in his life after he returned from 1300 AD. This causes several continuity errors across multiple Dynamite titles, with most being unresolved.
