Subj: How about the "real" definition, as per science...

Reply Subj: I think some people at Marvel don't know the difference between the multiverse and omniverse (New Exiles #8 spoilers)

First, the Captain Britain Corps. was based on the multiverse and now the omniverse and now the Exiles is based on the omniverse instead of the multiverse where they still travel in alternate marvel universes.

The multiverse is a unlimited row of universes that are somewhat similar to each other like Marvel's What If or DC's Elseworld

While the omniverse is a unlimited row of multiverses like Marvel, DC, Image, and other competitive companies.



... the one some of us would like Marvel to use if they, like, could (it seems that most comic book authors don't know jack about science... they're good marketers though!)...

1) The Multiverse: a sub-set of possible Universes within all possible Universes including the unique space-time continuum used as a reference point (i.e. "our" Universe OR perhaps the 616 if that is the one being referenced). Oddly enough physical evidence for multiversal "entanglement" may actually exist in the form of the distant "WMAP cold spot", a cosmological oddity. These postulations support that brain-blasting set of ideas known as string theory.

2) The Omniverse: this is not a term used widely by physicists but I wonder if mathematicians use it. Yes, Omniverse means literally "all possibilities" that can ever be imagined and then more. In other words it's another name for infinity but there can be a structural component to it whereas infinity is just that, "the infinite" (actually mathematicians can "work" with infinity in certain ways... as in Taylor and McLarin series as well as in other more esoteric ways). The Omniverse is Infinity, connected to the more limited Multiverse connected to the unique Universe. The Omniverse is Infinity is that which is even beyond all imagining: EVERYTHING, so much so that it even encapsulates nothing... Wow. Man.

OMNIVERSE... Hey! They mention Gruenwald!
