    Dunno if the Earth 12 and Earth 16 designations still stand for the Batman Beyond and YJ universes respectively.

    Oh, and there are these additional earths rumored to appear in Multiversity-

    Earth 4: A world based off the Charlton characters and inspired by Watchmen
    Earth 10: A world where Nazis won WW2
    Earth ???: An earth based on the status quo of the 90's DC, with Wally West as Flash and Kyle Rayner as GL
    Sorry, but I don't know what that means.
    I seriously miss Captain Mar-Vell.

    Are there any Earths that are not primarily superhero-oriented? I mean, we have superheroes. Practically boatloads of them on the regular DCU Earth. Why do we need so many planets with more of them?

    It means "Earth One Original Graphic Novels". Right now there`s been only "Superman: Earth One", by JMS and Shane Davis. Volume 2 is in the works and should be out next year (I think), and "Batman: Earth One" is currently in production by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank to be released later this year.

    The PIC I posted is the cover for Superman: Volume 1.

    I believe that Superman: Earth One Vol 2 should be out this fall.

    Ah, now it all becomes clearer. Forgive me, I'm very new to DC, and knew nothing about these graphic novels. Is this Earth based on the pre-flashpoint main DCU Earth, or is it someplace totally different?

    But "day one" was before the reboot to the DCnU took place in September of last year.

    If there's no new reference to it being "Earth-16" anywhere other than the Young Justice TV show or the comic book based on the show, maybe it's not part of the newly (re)formed DCnU Multiverse.

    Has there been specific references since September? (I honestly don't know since I don't watch the show and don't regularly buy the comic book.)

    I think the OGN format was a long time coming. I see it as a huge part in the future of comics.

    According to Dan DiDio on his Facebook page there are still 52 Universes, but most of them have been re-started in the new 52.

    Outside of Prime Earth there are only 3 numbered Earths:

    Earth One- Of the OGN line (Still waiting to hear if if that makes Superman:Earth One the first Post-Flashpoint book).
    Earth 2- Which came out last week.
    Earth 23- From Action Comics #9

    Dan also stated that unless it is numbered, no Earth is officially part of the 52 Multiverse. Which brings into question where did Superdoom come from?

    Maybe Morrison will (eventually) address that in Multiversity.

    (But also, take everything DiDio proclaims with a grain of salt . . . and maybe a shot of tequilla.)

    If you're more familiar with Marvel, think of the current Earth One as DC's Ultimate line, except so far all the stories are solely happening in graphic novel format, no individual comic issues. So Earth One is not based on nor relies on any previous and existing other timelines/universes/anything...it's just its own thing.
