Alt-History Aftermath Scenarios Implied by Media

THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD THAT KNOW OF "THE PLACE PROMISED IN OUR EARLY DAYS"!!

For war of the worlds there actually is a midling animated movie exploring exactly that premise:
I honestly didn't count on finding someone else who knew the movie existed. I looked it up myself just because someone here mentioned it in another thread, and the description they gave seemed interesting to me. (Perhaps it was you who mentioned it).
 
The Eternals movie appears to imply that Superman 'd be part of the MCU...

Here is the latest HBO series DMZ , based on the DC/Vertigo title, which has Manhattan transformed into a demilitarized zone, hence the title, and yes it's an ATL, with the POD being a more radical reaction to 9/11 and even worse reaction to the 2008 election of Barack Obama:

Whoa nice I had no idea this was a thing.
 
I can imagine the nature of the changes but I don't know if that is more appropriate for Polchat.

Timeless: Considering all the changes the guys at Mason Industries have introduced, I think it's reasonable to assume that their "OTL" is an ATL full of changes across the US. (And that it has a huge butterfly net so that the future is basically the same).
 
Based on the trailer, they have gone with the P.O.V. of a different character, but will maintain the same events of the comic, from the "Free States Uprising" to the mayoral race....
From what I've read, the new character seems to be more interesting than the old one. Or at least it seems that it will have more hook to attract more public. That should work fine.

The kind of changes I was imagining were more oriented to the origin, motivations and development of the events of the series, as well as the reversal of moral polarities.
 
I've posted about this ending before, but I'm just curious. What was the state of the Soviet economy by 1981, because I doubt the Soviets have the will or ability to project itself over all of Europe, especially a Europe that has been razed to the ground.

Also, I keep looking at the map of bombs in Europe and somehow, the Americans were able to sneak a bomb into Communist Poland. How? I don't know.
My big concern in this timeline is the effects it would have on European elections

especially when project greenlight is inevitably revealed to the public via Soviet leaks
 
The 1993 film Dave would have massive effects. Especially if the truth of the entire film came out.
I always liked the fact the one author who caught on was portrayed as a crazy conspiracy theorist in a news clip towards the end. But the amount of people who knew about the big secret.....it would have come out eventually.

The weird thing is that person was director Oliver Stone, who was considered infamous at the time for conspiracy theories, especially after his film JFK being released 1 year earlier...
 
House of Cards had the 2010s have what was essentially the most scandalous presidency ever to happen with Democrat Nixon (but worse) causing an unbelievable amount of damage.
 
So I’m sure this has been covered already, but Ted Lasso is obviously an alternate universe where football club AFC Richmond exists and to be honest, while it’s implied they aren’t very good as they have few honors, this could easily mean they are a mediocre, bottom half club, but not bad enough to be relegated (yet anyways. I need to finish the show) though I’m not sure if you get a trophy when you get promoted. In addition, AFC Richmond seems to have been top flight since the 80s as they haven’t won’t at Everton FC in Liverpool in that long.

One thing too is in regards to American football. It says Ted Lasso was football coach at Wichita State. Wichita State hasn’t had football since 1986. Obviously they kept it in this timeline, but it’s said that Wichita won the division 2 national title. This means that Wichita State either dropped division 1 athletics, the ncaa got rid of its rule that all schools with football had to move their athletic programs to D1 ( before this, you had schools like Georgetown or Dayton or Butler playing D2 or D3 football with major basketball programs), or the ESPN announcer made a mistake and Wichita is in the Division 1-AA level, which has playoffs and includes teams like North Dakota State.

Any of these could be possible as Wichita would fit well in Division 2 as Kansas and Missouri have some very strong D2 programs like Pittsburg St and NW Missouri State. For sure in FCS they’d fit well into the Missouri Valley Football league with teams like North Dakota State and Northern Iowa. Either way, they exist and have football in that universe and it might have some implications on their basketball team.
