10 DC Alternate Universes You Won’t Believe Exist

9. The Hippy Universe - Animal Man #23

DC Comics

In an alternate universe where the Justice League chose the significantly funnier name of the Love Syndicate of Dreamworld, the world revolves around drug culture similar to that found in the original hippy movement.

In accordance with this, each hero has a name that revolves around some form of sixties drug slang, with the Flash being named 'Speed Freak', and the Green Lantern being named 'Magic Lantern'.

This initial team would also - for indiscernible reasons - contain a neo-Nazi, and a vaguely punk looking version of Batman and Robin - all of whom would be removed when the team were reintroduced in the Green Lantern series. Instead, the League would get themselves a leader, in the form of the teenage President of the United States, affectionately known as Prez Rickard.

When a chill collection of weed-smoking superheroes are one of the tamer DC universes, you know the multiverse is well and truly weird as hell.
