Earth 2 (AKA Earth-Two) is a alternate universe in the DC Multiverse, in which the heroes of the Golden Age have lived on and grown older.  Earth 2 was the original DC Universe in the Golden Age (from the late 30's to the mid-50's).  The characters weren't originally intended to inhabit the same continuity but over time the characters met, most notably in the first Justice Society of America stories.


Though there were super-powered beings for the longest time, the superhumans (and superheroes) first emerged during the depression.  The first truly notable one was Superman, a young man who began his career by fighting crime in Metropolis, with a big focus on social injustice, fighting slum lords, abusive husbands and lobbyists.  Soon, other heroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and the Green Lantern emerged, using their powers to fight criminals.

A large number of these heroes emerged just as America was beginning their involvement in World War II.
