-Not all humor characters exist on Earth-12, however, since several humor series exist more or less in a realistic setting. Humor characters who live in fantastical settings, interact with fantasy characters, and/or use parodies of existing characters or people probably exist in the Earth-12 universe, rather than in one of the more realistic universes such as Earth-1 or Earth-2. We have done our best to categorize characters based on the above criteria.+Not all humor characters exist on Earth-12, however, since several humor series exist more or less in a realistic setting.
