I'm a fan of a couple Alternate Reality/Alternate Future storylines. Red Sun Superman, The Dark Knight Returns, House of M, AoA, etc etc. Never been a fan of Exiles or the What If series though.

  I love the Ultimates, but they were more variations of the original characters than contemporaries. The present mainstream characters are more the modern versions of the originals.

I love alternate universes because you can finally take a break from the original story and see comics in a different direction.  
 
I love marvel zombies and the issue of deadpool merc with a mouth where deadpool and headpool go threw different universes.  
 
I don't really like what ifs? though

@Primmaster64:  Oh yeah the Marvel, DC crossover. LOL Magneto and the Magnetic Men. Yeah that was pretty freaking awesome. Cobalt was my favorite.

The thing about alternate realities, for me, is that they offer an opportunity one of two things
1) The ability deal (once again) with the core components of characters, relieved from the web of interactions with pre-existing obligations and connections to currently running works.
2) The ability to make decisions that, in all honesty, would be wayyyyy to hard to make in an normal work. Like, in alternate realities you can actually kill someone. very refreshing. Heck, in early Exiles they made it a point to kill a main character like, every other issue or so.
 
Also, yes, I agree. Despite the years between in, Age of Apocalypse is still incredibly fresh feeling. I usually make a run through the entire collection every other year or so.

I've always believed that The Crisis on Infinite Earths was a mistake....
