Before Watchmen, before Marvels, before Kingdom Come - there was SQUADRON SUPREME, a deconstructionist parable of the superhero paradigm in a real world setting. Published before such stories became commonplace, it set the standard for post-modernist super-hero fiction, and influenced a generation of creators.
On an Earth much like our own, the world's greatest superhuman champions are confronted by a society in ruins. Faced with the possibility of a new Dark Age for mankind, can they choose the only course available to them - and take control of the world's governments themselves!
Can their Utopia Plan succeed? Will a renegade member bring about their downfall? And what will happen when the Earth's Mightiest Heroes find themselves becoming instead it's all-powerful, totalitarian overlords?
Considered by many to be the finest work of the late Mark Gruenwald, the original groundbreaking twelve issue limited series is collected herein in its entirety for the first time.
