List Of Every Alternate Universe Shown Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness
Spoilers for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness follow!
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, as the title suggests, delves much deeper into the concept of the Multiverse than Spider-Man: No Way Home did. Stephen Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is sent through numerous different versions of Earth, presenting fans to new worlds they have never seen before.
Of course, there’s the MCU Earth that everyone knows about, which is now officially known as Earth-616 owing to this film. There are many more worlds after that, and most of them have neither been classified nor given names because they pass by so fast.

America Chavez’s Earth (Unknown)
Viewers are given a brief glimpse of the Earth from which America Chavez hails. It looks that she grew up in another utopia with her two loving mothers.
With Loki, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, and Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania all focusing on the Multiverse, it’s probable that America Chavez will return, and fans will get to see more of her world.
Bee Earth (Unknown)
Anyone with a bee or wasp phobia will probably not like the brief passage through the universe, which appeared to be swarming with human-sized bees. It was a visually stunning view into this universe, especially with the beehive-like backdrop.
It passes by so swiftly, and there is no context or allusions towards any Marvel character, that there isn’t much to say about it. Unless it’s a reality where Swarm, one of the Sinister Six’s most shocking members, has seized Earth.
Comic Book Earth (Unknown)
Fans will notice that Strange and America travel through one Earth, which is totally animated in the style of a comic book. Though it isn’t identical, many people will remark that it has a similar animation style to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Some fans are hoping to see the Spider-People cross into the MCU with the upcoming sequel Across The Spider-Verse: Part One. Maybe they’ll run across Doctor Strange on the way.
Cubic Earth (Unknown)
Because of how it affects both Strange and America, this universe was heavily marketed. In this cubic-based universe, the acclaimed horror and superhero film director Sam Raimi demonstrates his expertise and passion of strange horror by turning Strange into a series of cubes that fall apart as the two swirl through portals.
The entire background consisted of cubes and rectangular prisms. It’s like a live-action Minecraft universe with a darker tone.
Illuminati Earth (Earth-838)
Earth-838 is the allegedly idyllic dimension where Doctor Strange and America Chavez land to seek help against the Scarlet Witch. It’s an universe where the last of Earth’s greatest heroes have established the Illuminati to protect the Multiverse from threats.
Earth-838 is the designation for this planet, while Earth-616 is the designation for the main MCU planet. Ironically, this isn’t far from when Mysterio claimed to be from Earth-833, raising the question of whether he knew anything about the Multiverse.
Incursion Earth (Unknown)
Doctor Strange failed and triggered an incursion of his reality on the final and worst Earth shown in The Multiverse Of Madness. He was also corrupted by the Darkhold, transforming him into Sinister Strange, a malevolent variation of Stephen.
Sam Raimi was permitted to completely embrace his horror roots in this alternate realm. It feels like a great confluence of Marvel and The Evil Dead movies, from the dark and murky aesthetics to the scares and even the way the sequences are edited.
Oceanic Earth (Unknown)
This one doesn’t have much to say. The powers that be in America banish her and Doctor Strange to an underwater world. The heroes go across this planet in a matter of seconds once more.
It may simply be an Earth entirely submerged in water. Or maybe it’s a universe where Namor The Submariner is the most powerful hero on Earth for obvious reasons.
Painted Earth (Unknown)
Doctor Strange questions if they were only sentient paint in one reality upon arriving on Earth-838, one of the only universes mentioned in The Multiverse Of Madness. American confirms that and even informs him that she’s been there before and that eating as a paint blob is quite difficult.
This Painted Earth, despite moving at the same speed as the other universes, has one of the most visually striking looks. Everything, even Strange and Chavez, is a form of paint, which was unique and gave an aesthetic the MCU had never done before.
Prehistoric Earth (Unknown)
Strange and America arise on a world populated by dinosaurs on one of the numerous distinct Earths. In a sense, the MCU created their own Jurassic World. There were a couple dinosaurs that flew by swiftly, including a theropod that looked like a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
However, this isn’t the first time Marvel has used dinosaurs. In the comics, there is an area known as the Savage Land, which is home to dinosaurs. This could be a way for the MCU to introduce the Savage Land.
Robotic Earth (Unknown)
When Doctor Strange and America Chavez flee Earth-616, America Chavez’s dimension-hopping abilities transport them to a number of different universes. Each one leads them to change in order to fit into that world’s appearance and operation.
One of these universes was a world populated entirely by robots. Since Strange and America pass through in a matter of seconds, there is no explanation or context provided.
Space Between Worlds
The audience are introduced to this dimension in the first scene of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. It’s the multiverse’s hub universe, containing the antithesis to the Darkhold known as The Book Of Vishanti, the most powerful weapon capable of stopping Wanda Maximoff AKA The Scarlet Witch.
It’s a vibrant, colorful universe that combines abstract space with floating architectural elements. It’s as as gorgeous as it is trippy, with the various roads and island-like architecture all created to mirror Doctor Strange’s distorted style, but with an added fantasy touch.
