"The multiverse has a way of aligning fates...It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this Earth, Clark Kent is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses."

This article is about the location set in the Smallville universe. This article only contains information relevant to the Arrowverse. For information regarding that universe, please see Earth-167.

"You will always be my greatest enemy on any Earth. It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this Earth, Clark Kent—heh heh—is Superman."
Lex Luthor to Clark Kent[src]

Earth-167 was one of many universes in the original multiverse.


During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Clark Kent of this universe was visited by Clark Kent and Lois Lane of Earth-38 and Iris West-Allen of Earth-1, who attempted to ask him to join them to stop the Anti-Monitor. However, Lex Luthor of Earth-38 appeared and sent them away, before attempting to kill Clark. He realized that Clark no longer had his powers, before Clark punched him and Lex disappeared.[1]

Earth-167, along with the rest of the multiverse, was destroyed by antimatter during the Anti-Monitor Crisis.[2] However, a new universe was created by the Spectre and the Paragons as part of the new multiverse, which is said to be identical to this universe.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • This universe is seemingly home to the Smallville television series. The number 167 is a nod to the show's producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar both being born in 1967.[4]
    • However, this Earth being part of the Arrowverse multiverse is somewhat inconsistent with both Season 10 and the comics continuity of Smallville, in which the Smallville Earth is classified as Earth-1, while there are others such as Earth-2 and Earth-Majestic. Also, in the comics continuity of Smallville, the heroes encounter and defeat a species named Monitors, dedicated to erase the multiverse using a form of antimatter nicknamed "The Bleed". Due to these multiple mismatches, whether or not this universe is the exact same one of Smallville is highly questionable.
      • This may be explained as a result of a group of "local" multiverses similar to the local 53 universes originally known to exist to the residents of Earth-1, as well as some residents of Earth-2 originally referring to their universe as Earth-1 before learning the correct designation. For instance, Harry Wells of Earth-2 once mentioned that he thinks of Earth-1 as "[his] Earth-2"; considering Earth-2 (his home) to be what he'd refer to as Earth-1.[5]
  • In the DC Comics, Earth-167 is the universe where best friends Lex Luthor and Clark Kent are Superman and Batman respectively.
    • This can also be seen as a nod to the series itself where Clark and Lex were initially friends before becoming enemies.
