Multiverse is the term that refers to the collection of all individual dimensions (or planes) of existence, including both Heaven and Hell dimensions. For an unknown reason, many higher beings had the dimension known as Earth playing a central role in their plans.
Notably, the term “universe” denotes only a single dimension.
Behind the Scenes
- The Buffyverse is the shared fictional universe in which the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel are set. This term, originally coined by fans of the TV series, has since been used in the titles of published works, and adopted by Joss Whedon, the creator of the fictional universe. This universe has been expanded in licensed comics, novels, games, among others, although not always contributing to the canon history.
- The term “multiverse” was used only once by a character, in Lorne: The Music of the Spheres.
