Behind the scenes

  • This Earth has aspects inspired by the Kingdom Come series, such as the death of Lois Lane and the black Superman emblem
  • The number 96 references the year the Kingdom Come series was first released. It also happens to be the year Superman: The Animated Series premiered.
  • This Earth also takes inspiration from both the Brandon Routh and Christopher Reeve Superman Films. This includes:
    • use of the main theme by John Williams.
    • referencing Superman III, where Superman turned insane and then split into a separate Clark Kent and Superman, before fighting himself.
    • Clark comparing Jonathan Kent to his son, Jason, based on his and Lois's son of the same name from Superman Returns.
  • During pre-production, this universe was referred to as "Earth-6".[2]
