Earth-1218 is the designation given to our reality, where super-heroes and other super-powered beings don't exist. This universe may appear somewhat dull from a cerebral perspective, but it does have its good sides, for those willing to recognize them.
All heroes and villains are fictional characters and are currently owned by Marvel Comics. The first of these characters, Namor, the Sub-Mariner, appeared in a comic book entitled Motion Picture Funnies Weekly published in April 1939, followed soon after by the first issue of Marvel Comics, which would later provide the name of the publisher initially known as Timely Comics. Although numerous characters associated with Marvel would rise to popularity in the 1940s, the so-called "golden age" of Marvel (a.k.a. "Age of Heroes") is said to have truly begun with the publication of Fantastic Four #1 in 1961.
- Current known residents are 7.53 billion humans and other species of animals found on Earth. However, it is probable that there is more life elsewhere on another planet.
- Our reality was first given a reality designation in the letters page of New Exiles #3, and it's numbered after the birthday of the editor of said book, Jordan D. White (December 18).
- It is possible that 4 years of comics in our universe are the equivalent of 1 year in the mainstream Marvel Universe, as it is revealed in 2013's Indestructible Hulk that 2008's Skrull Secret Invasion happened one year ago in Earth-616. This would mean that from 1961 (the debut of Fantastic Four #1 and the beginning of the "Age of Heroes") to 2017, only 14 years have passed in Earth-616 . Also, in the prelude of Amazing Spider-Man Vol 3 #1, which was when Peter Parker got bitten by the spider, 13 years had passed. Excluding time-skips, this may prove this theory.
- An alternate version of this universe was seen in the Spider-Man Animated Series episode "Farewell Spider-Man". This universe had its own version of Stan Lee.
- Tragically, our Earth was destroyed by an incursion, according to Tom Brevoort. However, thanks to Reed Richards after the events of Secret Wars, our reality was restored back to normal.
- Gwenpool claims she's from this universe. Since she factually never existed in our world, she's merely from a universe similar to ours, with the main (if not only) difference being her existence.

White on Twitter: "I just want to say, also, that when I took the opportunity to give our reality a number and gave it my birthday, I did it for just vanity and coolness reasons... but it is actually super-appropriate & meaningful to me that my reality is the one where the supernatural is not real.".
