"I always bring up Afterlife with Archie, wherein they told a different kind of story, they approached it from a different angle, but it was still Archie and Reggie and Betty and Veronica and all the characters you knew. It's just that they were tweaked a little for the story being told.

So with the Scooby Doo stuff, I'm not looking to tell people, "I know Scooby better than anybody else — I'll just change everything!" No. I'm trying to approach the characters by keeping as much of who they are as is possible within the limits of the story.

I'm not looking to do a complete revamp of Scooby Doo. I don't think there's any reason to.

It seems like there's two definitions of Elseworlds: the "what if?" kind, where one thing is different and it changes everything, and the "in a different universe" kind where everyone works in a coffee shop etc. I tend to be more fond of the latter type and comics lend themselves to it big time.

This is one of which I was always rather fond. I think because Gotham lends itself to Gotham by Gaslight AUs, obviously, but this one adds that Lovecraft sensibility that's different from the Gotham we have now, yet not actually all that different.

"Jason? You down...here?"

So my favorite Elseworld this year is The Doom That Came to Gotham. )

[livejournal.com profile] inboots in another community was saying: "there are at least two known universes out there where magneto and rogue are star crossed lovers, one where reed richards has an affair with elektra natchios, but none (that i know of) where charles and erik are buddies and live long happy lives, where is the justice tbh?!!!! "

Which prompted me to say "oh, there is a what if when that's the case, although it's not very good."; and then promise to post it on S_D.

So there you go:

6 pages from "What if Magneto had formed the X-Men with Professor X" from 2005 )
