3D stroke can also do a good job with this - it has a duplicate and offset function that can take one stroke and make it many. This also has the advantage of being 2.5D. You will need to add some glows or shine to this.

You could also look at the free plug in from VideoCopilot - Sabre. While initially intended for light sabre type effects, it has a host of great glowy tricks and unlike 3D stroke, has the intense glow built-in. Just use it on animated paths or masks.
If you are using AE2017 or above you can now have complete control over all nodes along an animated path - so you can animate each node separately at different points in time and use easing and the graph editor. If you have 2016 and before you have to use Mask Avenger from for this.
