Comics are filled with alternate realities — that’s why they call them multiverses, after all.

But underneath all those realities lies an altogether weirder set of alternate dimensions for heroes to visit, get stuck in, or be freaked out about. Here are our favourites from DC Comics and Marvel’s lengthy history. Read More >>

As audience members, we can see that moment and just kind of enjoy it. But, with a new Ant-Man movie to make, Reed had a completely different thought. Read More >>
