Does Power Girl count?

I don't really consider movies to be alternate universe, so I do not include them (though I love Nolan's Batman and movie Superman). My following favourite:

  • KC Superman (if that counts)
  • Earth 2/GA Superman
  • The Dark Knight Returns Batman
  • Power Girl

"Do you think this 'A' on my head stands for France?"

The best/worst line of dialogue from any Ultimate Universe book.

Superman: Red Son, I always liked how Mark Millar kept the core of Superman but ran with the soviet ideologies. And it appeals to my history nerd.

Old Man Logan or All-Star Superman, maybe All-Star Batman and Robin. All slightly different takes on popular characters that were fun to read.

Ultimate Cap, Kingdom Come Superman, Old Man Logan and Terry McGinnis.

Movie-Iron Man they made that character intresting. I actually like comic version of the character because they make him more like the movies

TV- Deathstroke from Arrow

Animation- Artemis know nothing of the character or if she's even real in the comics but i loved her in Young Justice

Comic Alternate Universe- Hard to pick but eventually decided on Flashpoint Batman. (IDC if it's technically an alternate timeline or whatever) Thomas Wayne was just such an awesome Batman.

Honroable Mention go to Ultimate Hawkeye,Cap,Iron Man,Spider-Man, and Old Man Logan.

That's hard but here's my favs or some at least:

-DCAU Batman( I mean come on, if anything this version lived up more to the comic crazy version with dodging Darkseid's beams lol)

-Terry McGinnis/Batman Beyond-Just an awesome future Batman.

-Owlman(an Evil Batman is just cool)

-Ultraman(evil Superman is different)

-Injustice Earth 2 Evil Superman(let's face it this version of Superman makes Ultraman look soft lol)

-Flashpoint Batman aka Thomas Wayne-Really just badass and answers the question "how would Batman act if he didn't care about killing and used guns" lol(yes early Batman did use guns sure but not to Flashpoint's Batman extent lol)

- Superboy Prime(k he's a bit of a d-bag but that's what you like about him lol)

-Jay Garrick(Earth 2) Flash

-Red Son Superman

-Superman Prime 1 Million

-Old Man Logan

-Smallville Superman

-SA Superman

-Earth One Superman

-Evil Spock

-Future Spiderman

-Alternate Earth Spiderman
