The 10 Best Alternate Universes In Sci-Fi

By Josh Tyler | 9 years ago

The Wish Reality as seen in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “The Wish”
When Cordelia Chase, after having been impaled and cheated on by Xander, comes back to school she gets it in her head that Buffy is to blame for all her problems. It’s a high school mindset kind of thing, but there’s an element of sympathy you feel for her as she makes a nonchalant wish to the new girl in school. This new girl turns out to be a vengeance demon who grants Cordelia’s wish that Buffy Summers had never come to Sunnydale. The result is an alternate version of the town where Giles and Oz race around as the “White Hats” trying to fight back against demons and vampires, the Master from season 1 was victorious in his endeavors and now rules the area, and Xander and Willow have been turned into blood suckers.

It’s not just that Buffy is gone, but that she’s now back as the queen of the school that delights Cordelia. This alternate world reveals not only the importance of Buffy to Sunnydale, as she’s obviously kept a lot of evil at bay, but also that Cordy’s inclusion in the Scooby Gang has changed her. But by far the greatest thing about an alternate version of Sunnydale is that Willow is the most badass vampire vixen to ever exist. It made Willow sexy, and that’s something we can all get behind.
