    But DC had lots of titles that didn't interconnect with each other and existed in different continuities, then later established that they are all on Earths in the Multiverse. And the Mulitiverse was infinite--the implication being that every Earth existed in the DC Mulitverse, even Marvel and other publishers' comics.

    Including another company stories/comics sounds really like Morrison's Hypertime concept

I think that ended up being part of the downfall for dc's new 52 initiative.
    I think the Ultimate universe expired because they killed everyone.

    Anyway, multiverse with continuity all the way.

    I'm not only for an infinite multiverse, but I'm also a fan of the current infinite multiverses concept.
    I'm kind of curious to see if DC does anything with the idea. They kind of been playing around with it in Justice League right now, but I want to see some of these other Multiverses.

    Single universe.

    Single universe.
    Never felt the need to have other characters versions.
    If you want it put "elseworld" label on it and leave alone main earth and continuity.

    To an extent, the idea of having only a "single universe" and no Multiverse in DC Comics is laughable. Alternate timelines, Elseworlds, pocket universes are functionally the same thing as a Multiverse - settings featuring alternate versions of familiar characters outside the confines of 'mainstream' continuity.

    That said, I don't really have an appetite for the Pre-Crisis set-up of having the JLA on one earth, JSA on another earth, Marvel Family on another earth and so on. I think the ship has sailed on that one. Like it or not, the popular perception of the DCU today has the JSA as WW2-era precursors to the modern heroes, Shazam fighting alongside Superman, and the likes of Blue Beetle and the Question co-existing with the Justice League.

    Multiverse all day every day. It gives writers more freedom.

    I love the multiverse. I wish DC Comics would come out with a book that shows a map of the multiverse and an explanation of each one. Think like the Hyrule Historia or the Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia I would buy that in a second. I mean they made collectible books like the Anatomy of the Superhuman so they could do something like this for the multiverse.
