The microverse, as coined by Dr. Ryan Choi and initially referred to as the atomverse by Ray Palmer, is a nanoscopic or possibly an even smaller dimension existing within the multiverse. It is accessible by shrinking to a nanoscopic or possibly an even smaller size, as the dimension is essentially invisible to the naked eye.


While developing his A.T.O.M. Exosuit, Ray accidentally shrunk himself to such a nanoscopic or possibly an even smaller size that he accessed and was sent to the microverse.

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Harrison Nash Wells, Ray, and Ryan Choi built a device that can eternally shrink an individual once activated. This invention was used on the Anti-Monitor, sending him to and trapping him in the microverse for all eternity, rendering him completely unable to affect the multiverse as he is perpetually shrinking.[1]

"That's better. Possible trademark issues, but that's better."

  • Ray's attempt to dub it the "Atomverse" may be a tongue-in-cheek reference to how fans have dubbed the reality the shows take place in the Arrowverse.
    • Given that Marvel Comics has a "Microverse" also, the renaming may have been an in-joke about licensing conditions.
      • It's also an additional reference to how the Marvel Cinematic Universe had to come up with the name "Quantum Realm" due to the same issue.

Behind the scenes

  • In the comics, the Microverse is the foundation of all reality.
