Current known or inhabited Earths are not all specifically named in the Worm Universe. As of Arc 28, there were over a dozen Earths accessible from Earth Bet.[1] Some contacted worlds are unknown to the general public and were classified.[2] Over two years after Gold Morning,[3] there were 47 cataloged Earths, of which nine were currently inaccessible.[4]

There are many, many Earths that are not easily accessible. Each Shard resides on another Earth (or multiple Earths), linked through the dimensions.

Indexed WorldsEdit

Earth AlephEdit

Earth Aleph is the home to the Travelers.  It is a world that diverged paths from the time of Scion's first appearance. This world has variations of everyone born before said appearance (about 30 years before the start of Worm), though anyone born after may not have a duplicate in Earth Bet. It is much closer to the world of the readers than other Earths, even Earth Bet,[5] but it still has capes. However, they're much weaker than the ones on Earth Bet.[6][7] As duplicate of the part of the population that earth bet has at least with people over 30.[8]

Following Gold Morning, Earth Aleph was sealed off from the rest of the multiverse.[9][4]

Earth BetEdit

Earth Bet, also known as Earth B,[10] is the main setting of Worm. It is believed to have diverged from Earth Aleph around 1983[11].  It is the home world to Taylor and the majority of the other capes in the story.

Bet has dollar coins instead of bills, major terrorist attacks did not occur here, but the damage that people with superpowers did more than compensated.[5] The Cold War fizzled out when Scion entered the picture[12] and interfered with nuclear weapons testing.[13] There are the remains of an abandoned base on the Moon that was being created by Sphere.[14][5] Superhero comics are somewhat less popular and developed on Bet than in the real world.[15][16]

Earth Bet had a population of roughly 6,979,019,555 in 2011, according to the Number Man.[17]

Two years following Gold Morning, Bet was undergoing evacuation[18] and had been deemed uninhabitable. Threats included disease, pollution from abandoned chemical and nuclear sites, and lingering parahuman threats.[19][20] Some areas experienced unseasonably cold weather, with contaminated snow and groundwater. American refugees travelled for days to reach a portal to Gimel, and faced screening from authorities before being let in.[18]

Earth GimelEdit

Earth Gimel is an alternate Earth connected to Brockton Bay Bet, which seemed to have diverged from other human occupied earths roughly five thousand years ago.[21] There were a rare few native settlements.[22] It was an underpopulated world and was designated for evacuation of much of the East Coast.[citation needed]

As of two years after Gold Morning, there were five points of settlement on Gimel, with civilization growing outward from those points. It had been checked by thinkers to ensure that it was somewhat safe, but much of the planet was still unexplored.[22]

The American colony on Earth Gimel and associated territories became known as Gimel.US.[23][24] It and the surrounding areas had a population of roughly 50 million. The major city established on Earth Gimel after Gold Morning was simply known as "The City".[25][22]

Earth C Edit

The Earth containing New York C, in the Epilogues.[26] Possibly another name for Earth Gimel.

Earth Dalet Edit

Earth Dalet is an alternate Earth set up for refugees prior to Gold Morning. Zion attacked there in his rampage across the Earths.[27]

Earth HeEdit

Earth He is an alternate Earth used to evacuate Western Europe and Northern Africa minus the English speakers.[28]

Earth ZayinEdit

Earth Zayin is an alternate Earth used as a refuge. Sleeper followed into this world, presumably through a portal near his home in Mordovia,[29] and would later "subsume" it.[30] The very fact that he entered Zayin causes everyone else to write off the whole dimension as a lost cause and hope he remains there.[31][32][33]

Earth MemEdit

Another world colonised from Bet, which had sporadic contact with Gimel.US and was considered safe.[34] Likely the home to another specifically American colony.

Earth NEdit

Tattletale visited this world on a mission.[35] There was a portal to this world from the City on Gimel in the Norfair span.[36]

It's likely that this is officially named Earth Nun.

A PHO post that made reference to "noon" may have been referring to this Earth.[37] This post stated that one could easily reach the corner worlds from "noon".[38]

Earth Samech Edit

Earth Samech was a Cauldron controlled Earth.[39]

Earth Shin Edit

Full Article: Supreme Earth.

Sometimes known as Earth S. A world with parahumans, but no superheroes. Non-powered people are treated like second-class citizens. There was a takeover on a global level by supervillians, a group called 'The Supreme'. Said villains are very well organized by their leader: Goddess.[2]

Earth TavEdit

A world dedicated to Australian refugees, with a population of just over two million people. The largest settlement was attacked by the Yàngbǎn with the intent of conquering the planet for the Chinese Union-Imperial, but their attacking force was annihilated by the Simurgh.[40]

Earth AchatEdit

The Europe of this world was home to a toxic mold which caused illness in an expedition sent by a former Earth Bet government.[41]

Earth ChameshEdit

This world had some native inhabitants. A family from Bet accidentally blundered into a settlement there that the Guild was in the process of contacting, causing much confusion.[42]

Unindexed worldsEdit

Shamrock's WorldEdit

The home Earth of Shamrock. Contained live-in temple-schools.[43]

Sveta's WorldEdit

The home Earth of Garotte. There were legends of "branded" all over the world, demons or abominations that would come and kidnap people.[44]

Contessa's WorldEdit

The world Fortuna was home to. Eden's crash-landing tore a hole into this world,[45] allowing her to cross over and encounter Eden directly. This world seemed to have a very low level of technology, and Fortuna was unaware that people with dark skin existed.[46]

Doctor Mother's WorldEdit

The world Doctor Mother was home to. Eden's crash-landing tore a hole into this world, allowing Doctor Mother to cross over.[45]

Eden's WorldEdit

The Earth where Eden crash-landed, tearing holes to Contessa's World and Doctor Mother's World. Cauldron constructed their compound around her in Côte d’Ivoire. This world featured a number of monsters created by Eden's impact.[45]

Other Refugee WorldsEdit

Also colonized as of Golden Morning were a South American world that had their main settlement obliterated by Zion, and an unnamed world conquered by the Chinese Union-Imperial and used as their base. There were over a dozen worlds colonized from Earth Bet at this point.[1]

Other Inhabited WorldsEdit

There were a number of other known worlds with native civilisation as of two years after Gold Morning.

Among the most notable, all of which had parahumans, were:

  • A world "at constant war".
  • A theocratic world.
  • A world filled with Case 53-like monsters.

[47]

Corner WorldsEdit

A nickname for Earths that were relatively inaccessible, requiring travel through multiple portals to reach from civilisation. Many of the small colonies on these worlds were dominated by Parahuman dictatorships.[24]

TriviaEdit

  • The Earths within the Worm Universe are mostly named after the letters in the Hebrew alphabet.
    • The known Earths correspond to letters numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 13, 15, 21 and 22.
    • Achat and Chamesh are named after numbers instead; the Hebrew numerals for one and five.

  3. Our best count right now, excepting areas we cannot fully access, is that portals, devices, and tears between realities are currently allowing access to forty-seven Earths.

Earth Aleph, which most Earth Bet residents are or were familiar with, has been blocked off as well. - Excerpt from Glow-worm P.1

  12. Unlike the major players in the Cold War, the monsters he was thinking about weren’t so rational that they’d stand down with Scion in the picture. - Excerpt from Interlude 15.y
  13. That's essentially it. Scion was stopping raiding groups and paramilitary groups in Africa and the Middle East, and then began to respond to weapon testing in much the same way. Scion shot down one test missile from a country away and then hit the launch facility. This wasn't widely publicized, but it did have ripple effects in terms of culture and America's military spending/focus.
    Part of Scion's motivation in doing so was to prevent a scenario where the shards couldn't find hosts (for much the same reason, he would have gone out of his way to stop, say, String Theory). Part was Norton's instructions. But the countries basically realized that it wouldn't work. - Elaboration on spacebattles by Wildbow

  17.

  20. • Earth Bet has been deemed uninhabitable. Contrary to popular belief, radiation is not a major concern. However, many industrial sites were either destroyed or have weathered the last two years of neglect poorly, with chemicals leeching into groundwater and settling in valleys. Terrible numbers of deceased humans and other living species have led to other health concerns, particularly in previously heavily settled areas that received heavy damage. There will always be those who attempt to hold onto what we have lost, and many persist in trying to maintain some existence on Bet. However, new incidents arise on what seems to be a weekly or twice-weekly basis, with one in three having to do with powers, the powered, untended tinker technology, masters, and lingering threats. We may one day return to Bet, as some groups have fervently expressed a desire to do, but we have a great deal of work to do before this is possible. It may not happen in our generation or our children’s generation. Be aware that if you choose to return to Bet (and most authorities agree you have the fundamental right to do so) you may have to re-apply for entry and you will very likely be putting your well being in peril. - Glow-worm P.6
  21. The deviation point seems to be nearly five thousand years ago. Several teams are working on analyzing the sites where humans settled, looking for the cause of extinction. - Excerpt from Imago 21.5
  22. 22.0 22.1 22.2 Earth Gimel has been partially explored and checked by thinkers. There are no guarantees. Except for some rare indigenous colonies, it is unsettled. Gimel has five major points of settlement, with civilization finding its foothold around these points. The City, as of yet unnamed, is the primary US point of settlement and one of the primary waypoints. The City is a megalopolis with a commonly cited population of fifty million.

    [A18 11:12:35] Cap: things are really coming together like crazy. new skyscrapers every day, new stores. good and almost like a city in Earth Bet but it isn’t really home

  30. One Earth was already lost to us, destroyed by Scion in the first day he'd been traveling universes. The South American refugees who had fled through there would be either eradicated or reduced to such a small population that it barely mattered. Earth Zayin, too, was gone, subsumed by the Sleeper. - Cockroaches 28.5
  31. The largest settlements that remained, the most obvious targets. There was one in Zayin, but the Sleeper had followed the refugees in there. Even if it still stood after Scion's visit, there was no helping any of the refugees there. - Venom 29.9
  32. Sleeper. I could see him, sitting on a lawn chair on a balcony, reading a book out loud to himself. More trouble than he was worth. I let him be. - Speck 30.4

  41. Exploring the uncharted is exciting, but if you aren’t equipped, you can come to harm, even if the world is uninhabited. One ex-Bet government (which shall remain unnamed) sent one expedition to Earth Achat. The Europe of that world was home to an invasive species, which grew as a tubular mold in dark, shadowed spaces, particularly in forest. Eating food exposed to the spores these molds created causes stomach cramps that progress to reflexive vomiting over the course of two to five days. The vomiting then lasts another two to five days, causing death by dehydration for any who don’t receive care. - Glow-worm P.6
  42. Do not travel to inhabited worlds. Absolutely do not make first contact. [...] a family traveled across Earth Chamesh and happened across a settlement we were currently talking to. Much confusion and concern was had and we are still recovering. - Glow-worm P.6

  47. there is a world not far from us which is at constant war. there are tears in reality they can use to reach us and they have a lot of incentive to do so. they have parahumans too.
    there is a theocratic state which is more distant but they have some parahumans too.
    there is a world of monsters like Weld and his irregulars.
    there are others, smaller. there are probably others who we haven’t been told about. - Glow-worm P.8
