I just want to make sure I got this right: Are Powergirl and Huntress now on Earth 1, or are they somewhere else entirely? It's never really explicitly stated.

Earth-2

Earth-1 is a universe populated by hipsters.

Earth-2 was where they were from, but they hopped dimensions. Or did I completely misread two whole books?

They started on Earth 2, followed some tunnel and have arrived on Earth 1, the nu52 Earth. The hopping happened "5 years ago". The World's Finest book, for the most part, seems to take place in the "present."

The pic of Superman in his T-Shirt and jeans uniform shows that Helena and Karen wound up on the Nu52 Earth.

It's funny, I keep calling it Earth 1, the Nu52 Earth... I wonder if it is... has that been confirmed? Which I'm sure it will be, or at least they don't want to confirm it, because then it would only feed the idea that they can "go back."

Do the people on Earth 1 know about the other Earth's yet? Probably not. But...

It's actually called "main DCU earth" by DC editorial according to an article I saw over at The Beat.

Earth 0? Hm. Why not call it Earth 1, that seems to make more sense. It means it can only go up to Earth 51 then, cause it ain't the nu53.

What's Earth 1 like then? And Earth ZERO... as if it's nothing.

I guess I can get behind Earth Prime... though, you have to wonder what someone on Earth 12 might think, "Hey, WE'RE prime, you're Earth 4..."

Earth-1 seems to be reserved for the Earth-1 graphic novels.

So then it's 0 to 51 for the Earth "names."

Assuming that the post Infinite Crisis limit is still in place. Though two are up for grabs since the Vertigo Earth and the Wildstorm Earth were merged with Earth-0/Prime/Main.

Isn't "Earth Prime" supposed to be our Earth and without superheroes until Superboy-Prime discovered he had powers?

My gut says yes, just because of the nu52, yeah, I know it had to do with the number of books, but, it seems to be a number they like...

That was the old continuity.
