What Should I Call My DC Fanfic Universe? (FEEDBACK REQUESTED)

So, as one can tell, I’ve written a number of DC Comics-related stories on FanFiction.net, all existing in the same alternate universe (AU) I’ve been crafting. They are as follows thus far (and you can click on the images to view them)…

“As Bruce Wayne contemplates if his father would be proud of the decisions he’s making, he learns that, for one night, Thomas Wayne was The Batman. But why, and how did Bruce never learn of this until now? Only one man can tell him the truth.”

“Superman must contend with a threat that is clearly out to get him, creating a liquidized Kryptonite meant to kill him. Can he learn who is responsible and stop them? Meanwhile, a young man who idolizes The Last Son of Krypton finds himself thrown into the mix and pays a terrible price. Is he a victim, or a hero?”

“Only four women can protect Platinum Flats from mobsters, supervillains, secret organizations, and paranormal/supernatural threats. They are Black Canary, Huntress, Batwoman, and Raven: the Birds of Prey!”

There’s also a one-shot quickly approaching release, even though I’ve been saying that for like a month now, called Will & Hope. It’ll focus on John Stewart, who is the only Green Lantern on Earth, Wally West, the new Flash who is armed with the blue light of hope, and Bleez, a Red Lantern coming to try to kill them both. Finally, after all that, I plan to eventually do a Justice League fanfic, which will involve heroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Cyborg, and Martian Manhunter, as well as a classic JLA villain as the main antagonist.

So, as you can see, I’ve created quite the little universe out of these tales, and I haven’t finished yet. However, this has brought a dilemma to my attention: What do I call it? I mean, if it’s all gonna be part of the same AU, shouldn’t I give that universe a name or title of some sort? That way, when you see the title of the story, you know it’s part of this same storyline?

One idea I had was to call it Earth 52. The reasoning behind it was that, if my understanding of the current DC Multiverse is correct, there are only supposed to be 52 realities in the comics: Prime Earth (as of the New 52) being the central reality, and Earths 1 – 51 being showcased in other works, such as the Earth 2 series, the Earth One stories for Batman and Superman, and Earth 3 playing a huge role in Forever Evil. Hence, Earth 52 is the reality that doesn’t exist in the comics, and is therefore something I can use for myself.

Another idea I had for a name was Infinite DC. Basically, it takes its name both from Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis, and Ultimate Marvel. Also, it exists as a reality that is, in many respects, influenced by the events of an infinite number of other realities, what with it being a fanfiction inspired by the comics, the tv shows, the movies, and so on. Thus, in that sense, it’s a clustering of all the various interpretations of the stories, which can further motivate and inspire events within it, kinda like Hypertime when it was still around.

What do you guys think? Vote below which of the two I came up with sounds better, and/or add your own suggestion in the comments section below. And hey, feel free to let me know what you think of my fanfics, be it good, bad, or indifferent. Ja né!
