There would be some serious drawbacks to unrestricted multiverse-wide travel.  DNA evidence would be worthless.  In criminal & paternity cases.  Security systems that use biometrics would be ineffective.


    I imagine that there would be inter-dimensional conglomerates.  Many of which would involve a company acquiring its extra-dimensional counterparts.  Imagine a "Forbes/Fortune list" of the richest people in the multiverse.  Imagine a a super-competitive businessman like Bill Gates (for example) meeting his counterparts.  Imagine that those counterparts are all equally competitive.  Would they work together as partners, or compete as rivals?

Here are some more possibilities:


      1.)  If a species on our earth is endangered, it can be replenished by importing that species from an earth where it is thriving or even overpopulated.  Imagine the demand for truly exotic pets.  Animals long extinct on our earth.  Or even ones that never evolved here.


      2.)  Imagine an inter-dimensional comics convention involving the fans & pros of at least a few hundred (or thousand) earths.  The convention itself would probably take place on a relatively uninhabited earth.  The dealer's floor would dwarf (by far) the biggest book fair or flea market on our earth.  Two to four days would not be enough time for such an event.  It would have to be at least two weeks or a full month. :twisted: :lol: :twisted:

The dealers in my "inter-dimensional comics convention" scenario would not just be from our earth.  They would be from several hundred (or thousand) parallel earths (including our earth of course).  This would involve earths with differences (from ours) like:  DC never did crisis or the post-crisis revamps/reboots;  Marvel & DC merged in the 70s & combined their multiverses into one;  Fawcett remained in the comics business at least up to the present;  Big Bang Comics has been around since the 30s & is its earth's "DC Comics";  AC Comics did acquire the charlton characters;  Charlton remained in business;  Alan Moore rebooted Superman after zero hour; And many other possibilities.  Those dealers would be selling comics, books, magazines, fanzines, dvds, cds, action figures, and other things completely unavailable on our earth.  That would dwarf even the internet & ebay.

Also in my "inter-dimensional comics convention" scenario the dealer's floor would include booths for the various comic book companies of the earths involved.  Come to think of it what would be the better way to arrange that floor?  Separate sections for each earth?  Or just lump all the dealers & company booths together?  Imagine two different DC booths.  One is from an earth where they never did crisis or the post-crisis revamps/reboots.  The other is from an earth where DC's management is even more strident in their bashing of anything pre-crisis.  And those two booths are right next to each other.  Or they could be facing each other.  Could make for interesting conversation. :twisted:  :twisted:  :lol:

Imagine an earth where sometime in the late 50s-early 60s Jack Kirby returned to DC, and was partnered with Jerry Siegel on the Superman titles.  Would be interesting to see what ideas would have resulted here.


   Imagine that in the early 70s DC bought all of Fawcett's comics properties.  Instead of licensing the Marvel Family.  Most likely the Marvel Family is placed on Earth-1.  To retain Kal's status as Earth-1's first modern superhero,  DC would have him starting his career as an 8 year old Superboy circa 1940 or 36.  DC then would come up with some "reason" why many of its characters are not aging at a "normal" rate.   Later when Roy Thomas creates the All-Star Squadron he includes among its members Captain Marvel's Earth-2 counterpart Captain Thunder.  


    Imagine that the "Superboy" tv series continueed as a "Superman" series up to the present.  At least.  Or that CBS didn't sabotage the "Flash", but instead allowed it to build an audience.


    Imagine that the sequels to the first Superman movie were done better, & formed a successful movie franchise lasting at least to the present.  And the Batman movies are also done better.


    Imagine that Superman was not rebooted after Crisis.  The post-crisis earth introduced in Crisis #11 (& used untill just before the Byrne/Wolfman reboot ) is the current DCU.


    Imagine that that DC didn't merge the earths at the end of Crisis.  The 1,000-3,000 universes destroyed in the Crisis are still destroyed, but the multiverse still exists.  Which means DC still creates new earths, when it acquires defunct comics lines.


    Imagine that DC ended zero hour by creating a new DC Multiverse.  That multiverse includes universes for: Hero Alliance; Power Facter; Ultraverse; & Impact!; among others.


    Imagine that Malibu Comics remained an independant company.  And several of the Ultraverse characters have successful movies/tv series based on them.  There is a "Nightman" tv series or movie franchise on this earth.  A good one, not the crappy one from our earth.


     Imagine that Disney gave its comics imprint the support it needed.  And Disney Comics becomes one of the top 2 or 3 in the industry.  After a while it developes its own successful super-hero line.


     Imagine that Dark Horse's "Comics Greatest World" was a comercial success, with several tv/movie franchises based on its characters.

Imagine that the Canadian comics industry didn't collapse after World War II but that Canuck kids had their own comics culture instead of an imported one.  Imagine Nelvana action figures.  Imagine that Win Mortimer stayed in Canada, working on Nelvan Comics.  Imagine that John Byrne created Alpha Flight for Bell Features in 1980.  Imagine that it kept him from screwing up Superman in 1986.
