Superman Vs. The Elite


The community is

outraged that convicted criminal Dr. Light...

...has escaped incarceration again,

embarking on a deadly spree.

Tensions between Bialya

and Pokolistan reached new heights...

...when Bialya

disregarded U. N. sanctions...

...and pushed into settlements

across the border.

Three strikes?

This is the law, not baseball.

If a man commits a felony, he should

be expunged from civilized society.

Victims' families are asking how

such a tragedy could have taken place.

Luckily, Superman arrived in

time to avert the terror attack.

- Military deaths in Middle East...

- Polls show...

...more often afraid than not.

- Where are our heroes?

- Sources describe the woman as kind.

... when nations are not held

accountable for their actions...

Time to take your medicine, love.

- Easy as pie, didn't I tell you?

- I like pie.

You're about to go on a diet.

Superman! Blast him!

- Oh, oh! Oh, oh!

- Why don't you two cool off?

- Caught a couple of big fish, Superman.

- And without a net.

Back to the tank with you two.

Up, up and away.

Maybe this time they'll learn

that crime doesn't pay.

Wow, okay. Ha-ha. That's, uh... Wow.

It never occurred to me

that the S stood for "silly."

It wasn't that bad.

When have you ever said

"crime doesn't pay"?

Well, you can take

the kid out of the cornfield...

Producer said it would be inspirational.

And who's profiting

from all this so-called inspiration?

Proceeds from the cartoon

go to charity, Lois.

Yes, I've got someone watching.

And yes, we have an iron-clad contract.

And do you get creative input?

Did I mention it all goes to charity?

Point is, you have to protect your S.

The world is always watching Superman.

Well, not always.

Oh. Smooth one, farm boy.

So close.

- Help me!

- My God.

- The Atomic Skull.

- Get somewhere safe.

You've gone too far this time, Skull.

They were just lawyers.

Come closer and we'll talk about it.

You've gotten bigger.

That genebomb that created me...'s still going off.

Let go!

- Cute.

- Why did you attack those people?

To draw out the main course, of course.

- You used them for bait?

- Give me a break.

I do what I do, you do what you do.

You'll have your front page

in 15 minutes, chief.

Yes, I'll spell-check.

Okay, beat it.


Here we are, lads and lassie.

Makes the old hometown

look positively quaint.

Mm. Makes me thirsty.

They grow them big here,

but not as big as Blue Boy.

Keep your pants on, Pammy.

We don't need you

getting all beasty now.

- Where do you think he is?

- I'll find him.

Just stay tight.

First impressions, you know.

- He don't like you.

- I don't like him.

So was this justice, Superman?

Millions in property damage...

...helpless bystanders killed

by a repeat metahuman felon...

...who's now enjoying three square meals

a day as a guest of the state.

You had the power to end Atomic Skull's

criminal career right there permanently.

Why didn't you?

I'm not anyone's judge and jury,

Professor Baxter.

Definitely not an executioner.

My powers don't put me above the law.

A noble sentiment. But are you the

Superman that the 21st century needs?

Why not use your power

to fix the world?

Let me reiterate that

I'm playing devil's advocate.

I'm a huge fan.

- Not embarrassing at all.

- Your dad?

Could do worse.

First, I don't believe

that the world is broken.

Because when we say the world,

we're really talking about people.

And it's always been my belief

that people at their core are good.

- Ha.

- The grace of mankind is everywhere.

You just have to open your eyes.

Humanity has a limitless

potential for good.

My purpose is to help people

reach that potential.

Tamarev. Tamarev is under attack.

What have you people done?

How dare you?

Pokolistan holds to the treaty.

Liar. My people are dying in the streets.

No less than they deserve.

Limitless potential for good?

Good isn't perfect. I have to go.

To be continued, professor?

This is an act of war.

Not while you press our borders.

Reports are streaming in from Tamarev... of the Eastern Bloc

nation of Bialya.

We're trying to get someone on the ground,

but as we've been reporting for weeks...

...diplomatic efforts between Bialya

and neighboring Pokolistan have collapsed

Both countries have access

to considerable technology.

Weapons of mass destruction

could come into play.

The U.N. has tried to intervene...

Wait, I'm sorry, we 're getting something.

Oh, God. We've heard rumors about

Pokolistan's bio-weapons program.

But this

- One of yours?

- No.

Oi. You in the cape.

The bastard doesn't have a brain or I'd have

had him rip his own guts out already.

He's still alive, so if you don't mind

setting aside the kid gloves...

- Come back from that.

- Nice one, brother.

But you could use a smidge more flair.


Flair, mon frre.

Who's a good sorcerer?

Double pork fried rice for you tonight.

You sure know how to make an entrance.

Thanks for the assist. Next time,

double-check for collateral damage.

Came a little close there.

- Hello.

- You're really tall.

Don't mind them, Mr. Superman, sir.

Big fans. Paralytic with giddiness.

So before anyone

does anything embarrassing: Ta.

Wait. Who are y...?

Where did they come from?

Where did they go?

What do they want?

What's all over that woman's body?

These four are the biggest news
