Okay, in real life, the world has seven continents, with America being North America and South America. Now does it ever say in one of the shows that there are only six? Cause it seems to me that they actually follow the real world's geography in these continuities.
DCAU takes place on Earth-992. It is here where all the DCAU shows take place. The Batman from DCAU has been seen in the mainstream DC Universe as a Batman from another earth. The mainstream Superman has even met him. Interestingly enough, the events of Batman Beyond also take place on another parallel earth, Earth-12.

- DCAU takes place on: Earth. No other numbers are given, even though several alternate earths have been shown. So this is quite irrelevant. -- Tupka217 17:20, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Quite irrelevant that the Earth of DCAU exists in the mainstream comic universe as part of the multiverse? --Duel44 00:40, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
- It's not part of the mainstream multiverse, pre or post Crisis. I haven't come across the term "Earth-992" in any canon source (please name it if there is one). Earth-12 features (so far) a Batman that resembles Terry, but that doesn't mean all the events of Batman Beyond take place there. -- Tupka217 07:27, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
The numerical designation of Earth-992 was given by John Wells, a comics historian best known for his research into the history of DC Comics, after the month and date -- September, 1992 -- that Batman: The Animated Series went on the air. On the cover of Superman: The Man of Steel #37, the DCAU Batman appears among many other Batmen from parallel earths. --Duel44 20:07, March 21, 2010 (UTC)
