10 Future Versions Of Heroes BETTER Than The Original

The future we've all been waiting for.

DC Comics

There have, over the years, been many alternate futures in comic books and future versions of the heroes we love.

Often these storylines feature an evil version of a well-known superhero, corrupted by the dark terrors the future holds: like an evil version of the Hulk who has gone crazy from gamma poisoning, or the Injustice series, where Superman has become a dictator.

There is something special, however, about those times that the window into a hero's future shows us a character who can not only go toe to toe with their predecessor, but are actually better than the original.

Sometimes the mantle of the superhero has been passed down to some new young hero trying to prove their worth, while other times the future version of the hero is just an older incarnation of the original character. Either way, these new heroes bring something new and exciting to the existing mythos.

It takes something special for a future version of a hero to be better than the classic original, but here is a look at ten future heroes who do just that.
