So curious, which series, franchise, shows, whatever have the best Parallel/Alternate Universes do you think?

My favorites are among: DC stories(Elseworlds, Classified, Crisis, Earth 2, Injustice etc), Star Trek, Fringe, Sliders, Mortal Kombat(MK:SM and outside media) and that's my favorite series/franchises with the best Alternate Universe stories.

What are yours?

Marvel has the best IMO

Marvel is ok, I enjoy DC's more personally. Does image have one at all?

@vaeternus: technically speaking there are only a few characters that share the same universe(mostly the heroes share the same universe I believe).

@vaeternus: I believe almost all titles from the 90's and Invincible share the same universe. Walking Dead, Saga, Chew, etc I believe are in other universes.

Kingdom Come and Red Son alone make DC the winner.

X-Men (Days of Future Past, Age of Apocalypse, Age of X, etc) very hard to beat.

I'm not sure I see what you mean, saying you think entirely different franchises are all about of the same universe/multiverse? So you think TMNT Universe is the same as DC and MK universe? :-/ *confused* If so I respectfully disagree :)

Dragon Ball. :D

Sorry I was talking about Image comics

#19 Posted by Pwok21 (2263 posts) - - Show Bio

Animewise, the Fate franchise has great alternates.

Comicwise, probably Marvel due to the sheer amount of Universes.

TV-wise, Twilight Zone is a clear winner.

Transformers,although the advantage Transformers have is that, there is no single definitive universe.Each new series represents a new universe under the Transformers brand.

#21 Edited by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

Kind of like what DC does with the cartoons in a way(separate from the comics, but yet based on DCU)

@joeagentofhand1, ahh ok lol that makes sense.

Star Trek the Mirrorverse is better that the JJ abramas universe

#23 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

I do love the ST mirrorverse, that'll be the next ST pack I pick up with alternate realities

#24 Posted by Betatesthighlander1 (7462 posts) - - Show Bio

Star Trek the Mirrorverse is better that the JJ abramas universe

this (especially in DS9, well, and Mirror, Mirror, really any time it appears it's great)

I'm liking Earth 2 at the moment, but in general, I find Marvel's universes more interesting

#28 Edited by stoneo (324 posts) - - Show Bio

@vaeternus: Yes, several actually. There is the one that Fionna and Cake live in and the Pillow World Finn traveled to and has children from. In the Leech it is also mentioned that their are many alternate dimensions/universes that can be traveled to through certain means.

#29 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

@stoneo, oh neat. Yeah, never got into happy time, is that the kiddy show? i'll have to google it

#30 Edited by Fuchsia_Nightingale (10180 posts) - - Show Bio

DC

#31 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

Yep, I like DC too

#32 Posted by Xaa (313 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:Turtles Forever

#33 Posted by guttridgeb (4831 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel just about has the edge over DC.

#34 Edited by Beast_of_Brass (153 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel in this case.

#35 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

Was never a fan of MU Alternates, to me DC has far better stories with Crisis, Elseworlds, Classifieds, He-Man, Vertigo etc I can be here all day really.

Of course for TV, Twilight Zone has among the best. Star Trek.

I don't think Fionna and Cake's "universe" is truly an alternate universe, isn't it just fan-fic written by characters on the show?

This.

"What if . . . ?" was great and should've been able to last but DC has the best alternate stories.

Hmm would the EU count as a parallel Universe to G-Canon? If so Star Wars SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

#44 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

Didnt lucas himself confirm years ago that the eu i sw isnt canon?

But I concur dcu is the best with alternate universes

#45 Posted by alvanorichie (4 posts) - - Show Bio

Thor`s parallel world is my favorite.

#46 Edited by Cara_Hunter (3687 posts) - - Show Bio

Tower Of Babel, it should have been cannon and they made Batman waaaaaay too weak on that Arc it's worthy of a smh gif.

My alternate universe where I am Vegeta...Prince of All Saiyans. No but seriously, I'd have to say that Muppet Christmas movie where Kermit wishes he was never born.
