    Default Elseworlds. What are some good ones?

    When DC started doing the Elseworlds stuff back then in the 1990s I only saw the usual of Batman, Superman and at least one Catwoman one.


    We're there any Elseworlds issues for characters like Flash or Aquaman or any other character?

    For the most part, Superman and Batman hogged most of the Elseworlds Titles, unfortunately.

    Some non-Supes and Bats Elseworlds that I really like are:

    Justice Riders (Starring the JLI in an old-west setting)

    JLA: The Nail

    JSA: The Golden Age

    Kingdom Come (Duh)

    Kid Flash (A tie-in to "The Kingdom" starring Iris II)

    I made a thread about the lack of Elseworld's imaginings for other characters aside from those big two (and WW being included as a supporting character). There really is a lack of them.

    That being said, the original "Flashpoint" was really good.



    This article is pretty revealing of the story, so I suggest reading it first. But if you want to know more, check it.

    Side-note, New Frontier is one of the best JLA Elseworld's.

    He is too. Before the Flashpoint that caused the end of happiness and good, back in the 90's, there was an Elseworlds story called "Flashpoint".

    And yeah, New Frontier rocks as well.

    Definitely The Golden Age. A 4 issues elseworlds series staring the JSA and related characters.



    Another good one is Superboys Legion



    DC also did Elseworlds in all their Annuals in both 1994 and again with the Legends of the Dead Earth Annuals in 1996. The ones in 94 were more your traditional Elseworlds stories while the 96 ones were all set in the far future.

    Well...

    They did Elseworld annuals in 1994 and it featured a bunch of characters like The Flash and Green Lantern.

    IMO Superman has benefited more than anyone else from the Elseworlds books.

    Non Superman/Batman ones that are good are a bit thin on the ground:
    Green Lantern: 1001 Emerald Nights
    The Golden Age
    Elseworlds' Finest: Supergirl/Batgirl.

    I didn't personally rate The Nail - though the art is stellar.
