For the whole season we thought of ZOOM's Earth as Earth 2, and Jay at the end says to call his world Earth 3, then there is Supergirl that for now we could say is Earth Supergirl or Earth S.

However in the finale ZOOM states that Team Flash's Earth is the central Earth from which all other alternates have emerged.

Thus we should consider Team Flash's Earth to be called either Earth Zero or Earth Prime, this would make ZOOM's Earth to be Earth 1 as it is the first parallel world for them to have encountered, and thus making Jay's to be Earth 2 which makes things a bit more sensible since in the comics Jay and the JSA are all from Earth 2.

Supergirl's Earth would still be Earth S for now, pending any upcoming merges.

I've always called "Earth-1" Earth Prime. And to me, Earth Prime IS Earth-1. So the numbering system still works.

As for Supergirl, I call her world, Earth-59 since 1959 was the year Supergirl made her debut in the comics.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
