  • What if the Time Trapper, in an attempt to take control of Hypertime, twisted and tweaked events in the DCU so that any opposition to his plans (i.e. the JLA, the Linear Men, Rip Hunter, etc.) either conformed to his plans (for example, many of the 20th century heroes saw him as an ally) or were eliminated (Batman would never side with the Trapper; therefore, the events which caused Bruce Wayne to become the Batman--his parents being killed--were altered due to direct interference by the Trapper). And it's up to the combined resources of all of the Legion of Super-Heroes variants of Hypertime, led by the LSH of Earth-1 and the LSH of the modern-day DCU, to stop the Time Trapper. - Submited by Briwd

  • What if Parallax plan to rebulid the DC universe was not stoped? - Submited by BLKJAC99
  • What if Hour-Man in 2000 came across the time-trapped Epoch (from JLA / WildCATS). Hour-Man merges with Epoch's Omega Attractor outside of time, freeing the villain from his prison and creating a paradox that reversed the Dark Nova that separated the WildStorm Universe from the rest of the Hypertimestream.
    The amalgam of Epoch and Hour-Man becomes Soliton, who's initial reaction is to bring the DCU & WSU together. In a maelstrom of alternate realities whirling in the wake of what used to be Hypertime, the WildStorm: Wild Times one-shots are glimpsed as space-time settles on a new 'mainstream'. Soliton sees a world containing heroes such as the JLAuthority, GenYJ, Doom Works, Wild Titans, Task Force 7, and Majestic Man. He/they realizes this is wrong, for now neither will have been created/born to have the opportunity to BECOME Soliton!
    Soliton enlists the aid of Jack Ryder, who never became Waverider (and in fact is only 13 years old) but remembers the 'old world'. In a series of related one-shots called ElseTimes, the various heroes of this new world would react to their surroundings, and the relevation that their reality is already doomed due to the collapse of Hypertime. Some heroes try to help Soliton, others try to prevent the armageddon they fear he will unleash.
    These latter heroes are revealed to be under the influence of Entropi, the cosmic villainess from Shattered Image (produced by WildStorm, luckily). She and Soliton come to blows, during which Entropi accidentally separates Hour-Man from Epoch. Epoch, knowing he is destined to die in order to birth the WSU, tries to steal Entropi's hypertime-shifting powers. Both are sent back to 65 Million BC via UnWhen, and the Dara repeats itself, setting time back as it should be. Hypertime, however, now includes the WSU (plus Homage, ABC, StarKrek, etc.) and an infinite number of variants along with them. UNTOLD TALES OF AMALGAM - Submited by Ron Schablotski
