Duckworld is planet almost identical to Earth in the reality designated Earth-47920, later retconned to Earth-791021. It is inhabited by anthropomorphic waterfowl and poultry called Duckworldians, and is the 'homeworld' of Howard the Duck who was somehow transported to Earth-616.
Return to Duckworld
Howard and Beverly Switzler arrived on Duckworld. In this world Beverly is considered the freak. Howard was eventually realized to have been the drake who had vanished a few years back. Initially fleeing from overzealous worshippers, Howard led Beverly back to his former home, the base of the WACkies, and they learned what Gander had done. Howard spoke up to the crowd, denouncing Godfrey and revealing the message he had intended for them. Though initially reluctant, the Duckworlders agreed to start thinking for themselves, while Gander vowed vengeance for losing his franchise. Howard worked to win his people over to Beverly, appearing with her on the Tonight Show with Johnny Quackson. In a "This is Your Life moment" Howard was reunited with his parents and his sister Theresa now a nun and brother Orville now a mortician. However, the next guest, Dr. Ludwig von Cluck a chicken, actually a paid agent of Gander attempted to use his "Surrogate Sniffer" super-vacuum machine to expose Beverly as a robot. It exposed her...by tearing off all of her clothes.
The appearance of a naked human appalled the Duckworlders, Howard and Beverly fled alongside fellow guest Truman Capoultry. A former ally of Gander, Capoultry wished to follow Howard's word and helped them escape. To help them return to Earth, Capoultry brought them to Ducktor Strange, Mallard of the Mystic Arts, who was a drunk living in an alley. Before Strange could do anything, Gander, MacDrake, and their allies showed up and attempted to gun down Howard, Bev, Capoultry, and Strange. Bev kicked a trash can into their attackers, after which they overpowered them one by one. Strange cast a spell sending them back to Earth, and while Gander saw this as a chance to revive the WACkies, Capoultry vowed to write a new book, telling the true story of Howard, which would foil Gander's plans.
Stu the Human
Stu Cicero was transported to by Artie Zix Duckworld. Attempting to go incognito via a fake duckbill mask (and fooling no one), Stu located Ducktor Ducktor Strange. Though Strange didn't recall he had such powers to send Stu home, Stu reminded him that he had done it once before and Stu was sent back to Earth-616, arriving through the Nexus of All Realities.
Deadpool the Duck hailed from this reality He was recruited as a member of the the Evil Deadpool Corps convinced by Dreadpool into joining his task to eliminate every Deadpool from the Multiverse. He was killed along with the rest of the corps.
Howard the Duck and the Daydreamers believed to have found themselves on Duckworld. Crowds of Duckworldians surrounded them, eager to welcome their hero home. In an effort to keep the excited mob at bay, Tana Nile picked up the Man-Thing and begins swinging him about like a baseball bat. The Daydreamers duck down an alleyway and stealthily make their way towards Howard's home. Howard does not know why he is being hailed as a great hero, and he frankly doesn't care. The Man-Thing begins to lose his cohesion, and Tana has to help him along.They arrive at the house of Howard's parents, June and Ward. It is an idyllic two-story home with a perfectly manicured lawn and a white picket fence. June and Ward come out to greet the newcomers and they welcome Howard with open arms. Following a quick repast, Howard decided that he has had enough. He knows that this is not his true family and that his home life was never this perfect. As he shook his head in denial, the imagery washed away and all is revealed to be an illusion.
Points of Interest
- Duckworld is not the original homeworld of Howard the Duck, as flashbacks confirmed that alternate Earth Earth-791021 was inhabited by various species of anthropomorphic animals, not just ducks. However, Howard has visited Duckworld and treated it as if it were his own homeworld, suggesting that his Earth and Duckworld have merged, perhaps in a manner similar to the various times Earth-616 has been merged with the Earths from other realities (c.f. Amalgam, House of M, Chaos Engine, etc).
- This reality number was assigned by the Marvel Appendix based on Steve Gerber's birthday (20th September 1947).
- Duckworld was featured in the 1986 Universal movie adaptation of Howard The Duck, as an alien planet in the same universe rather than another dimension.
