    Multi. The market for The Teen Titans supplanting the Justice League, or The All-Star Squadron is probably small, but great stories can be told with them. The multiverse approach allows room for such niche properties, without overcrowding the main continuity.

    Today's publishers, however, wouldnt like it. If one of those alternate-world properties hits big (as Titans did in 1980), TPTB are going to want them handy for Events.

    Multiverse. The time before Crisis on Infinite Earths was perfect.

    Do you know that phrase "less is more"?

    It's bullshit.

    More is more, that's why it's called "more", not "less".

    Multiverse for me.

    Several infinite multiverses, for all I care.

    I hate multiverse!
    I’ve never felt the need for others version of a character.
    Crisis on infinite earths should never be undone.
    If you want alternative stories label it with elseworld and leave them far from main universe and continuity, exactly how they did in 90’s.

    I'd say that some times "less is better". Some times.

    Elseworld’s is still the Multiverse.

    Every book should first, and foremost function in isolation. Being part of a cohesive, shared universe is meaningless if the comic suffers for it when read by itself.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Single Universe. It's a lot easier to keep track of things that way.

    I like the idea of a multiverse because I feel it provides more opportunity for storytelling.

    I do not like the execution of DC's multiverse.

    This is kind of my stance on it.

    Although I'm fine with a single universe for the most part.

    (It's all in the execution).

    Yep. It's a shame we never got the chance to see what that setup could have progressed into naturally.
    The tail end of the Bronze Age right before COIE has some great stuff in it (Swamp Thing, Legion, NTT, Moore's Superman stories, the Earth-2 books) and proved they didn't need to do anything so drastic. I get they felt they had to at the time, but hindsight being what it is, they created FAR more problems than they solved.

    To illustrate my thoughts on the Universe vs. Multiverse debate, I remember that in 1996, during the FINAL NIGHT crossover event, which took place in the singular, Post-COIE DC Universe, we were shown this crowd scene:



    That represented pretty much the bulk of the DC superhero population in 1996. I remember seeing this panel and thinking, "How sparse and lonely this looks compared to..."



    "...from COIE ten years earlier!"

    To me, the singular DCU that dominated the 1990s always felt anemic and underpopulated compared to the Multiverse configurations.
