Rick and Morty is a series with some of the most unique worldbuilding in all of Television. Sure, it isn’t the first or only show to explore the idea of a multiverse, in fact multiverses are more mainstream than ever. The MCU is diving into the multiverse headfirst, and Into the Spiderverse won an academy award for its multiversal feature film. But Rick and Morty explores the multiverse in a way that really only Rick and Morty can, and that’s through its titular characters, Rick and Morty. Particularly Rick and his place in the Multiverse at large as this all powerful science god. But we see it this way because of the specific Rick and WE follow in the series. The reality is that there are LOTS of Ricks and Mortys in the show, as showcased in multiple episodes, but most of them exist within a different set of social constructs as our Rick and Morty. And this is where the deeper and most interesting aspects of Rick and Morty’s multiverse exist. So today let’s take a close look at Rick and Morty, the Citadel of Ricks and the dark, troubling implications that come with them.
