What Happened to Elseworlds - featuring the Search for Ray Palmer
~ If you want to blame any one thing for why Elseworlds went away, you would likely have to point at Countdown presents The Search for Ray Palmer. While the multiverse had been re-established in 52, it was in Search that Elseworlds universes got numbers and became continuity. Which pretty much took the otherness away from them. DC tried to build new imprints to re-live this with the All-Star and Earth One imprints, but they just don’t have the same kind of feel.
