Isn't "Earth Prime" supposed to be our Earth and without superheroes until Superboy-Prime discovered he had powers?
Yes. It's also home to the Mark Waid Legion.

They're just an club of husky blokes that grow their beards out right?

Still nothing to do with superheroing?

Officially I think its now "Earth-0" or "Earth-Prime."

It's actually called "main DCU earth" by DC editorial according to an article I saw over at The Beat.
I read something to this effect too. I think it was in an article with, oddly enough, James Robinson talking about the Earth-2 book. But I think it was on Newsarama, and either Robinson or Newsarama writer, via footnote, said that DC editorial had contacted them and said that the New52 Earth was called "main DCU Earth" and that whatever term Robinson had used was not correct and that this was how the current Earth was to be referenced in articles.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I wasn't that impressed by Earth 2. I liked the art a lot; the story not so much. It is clever to turn the old Justice Society -> Justice League chronology on its head and have the Earth 2 Flash, GL etc be successors to the modern versions of characters like Superman rather than decades-older antecedents. I liked the touch of having the "S" on Superman's cape designed after the Golden Age Superman's (and coincidentally like the one on Cavill's costume in the upcoming movie).

It'll be a shame to see Kara trade in her Supergirl outfit for that lame PowerGirl costume they've designed.

I think the name of the main continuity earth is pretty easy to come up with. It's the new 52 earth; so why not call it Earth 52?

"The new 52" sounds to me like a completely new multiverse.

When really... This should be considered the 53rd world surely?

Because they're calling it the main DCU Earth.

Oh yeah, the art. It was quite good. Wonder Woman was done better here than in her own title.

I wasn't too impressed with Power Girl's costume either. I liked Helena's Robin outfit though and hope to see it again.

Sort of odd to go from Supergirl to Powergirl if the implication is that these are their grown-up identities? Is Powerwoman taken?

This is like how Captain Marvel Junior can't say his own name?

"An Ape can say no to a man, but a man can never say no to an Ape."

but in truth it's more equatable to a lady changing her name for marriage.

You know if these suffixed 'girl' Super heroines chose their names when they were still almost children and felt compelled to express the change in their identity brought on by puberty...

Is Reed Richards a paedophile?

Sue Storm was 18 and he was 42 in the fantastic four #1.

Something like that.

But listen carefully to a woman about to be wed, complaining about changing her name on all her important paperwork, bills, credit cards, clubs and identifying documents, it's an expensive and pointless slog.

They do go on.

Brand identification.

Besides 90 percent of the people these "girls" meet are going to be punched in the face by these "girls" and after the fact, for these villains and assholes, what's going to leave a more humiliating stain in their memories, being beat up by a woman or being beaten up by a girl?

Yeah, that costume is pretty awful. the P around the left boob is just weird. No woman would have ever designed that.

Why do you think Lesbians can't be fashionable? Or at least have common sense? A Giant Stylized P around your boob? Only a dude would think that looks good.

fashionable smashonable.

I know they can (sometimes) be as unforgivably sexist and charmingly predatory as any man.

Lesbians make me seem like a better man.
