Favorite Elseworld?

#1 Posted by Methos (40532 posts) - - Show Bio

just curious, for all those who actually remember and love the old Elseworlds, what was your favorite Elseworld?

now to avoid the massive flood of votes for Kingdom Come, i won't count that one as it would be an automatic win lol

so any other Elseworld, if you're not sure of them, go to the Elseworlds page and see the list i've collected of every published Elseworld.

Personally my top three are...

  1. Superman: Darkside

  2. Dark Knight Returns

  3. Superman: Distant Fires

Anyone else?

alright since ive only read three KC, Dark Knight Returns and Red Son ill have to say

Dark Knight since KC is taken off the choice list.

It was just a REALLY cool take on our favorite depressed man in tights. I just loved it that simple

Red Son was also cool but it didnt hit me the way KC or Dark Knight did.

I think I've only read one, and it's my favourite comic book of all time. DKR was and still is an incredible book, and my favourite take on Batman.

Darkchild says:

"In Darkest Knight was AWESOME"

I've read that too, but I think I'll need to read it again to analyze it better.
