Thanks to DC’s Elseworlds imprint, fans can read stories about alternate versions of their favorite characters. Don’t get me wrong, I love the classic characters, but there’s something to be gained from observing how they function in different environments.
Just because Batman is a hero on Earth Prime doesn’t mean he is going to be a hero everywhere in the DC Universe. Elseworlds allows some of the best talent in comics to come together and come up with a radically different identity for established characters. Not all of the versions stick, but it’s always interesting to see how things can be re-imagined. The Elseworlds imprint was such a success that Marvel even started publishing similar “What If?” stories to keep up with popular demand for new versions of older characters.
