Absolute Power, the third storyarc from Jeph Loeb's run on Superman/Batman, finds the DC icons in a different light. Through a time traveling sabotage, Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne still grow up to become their respective alter-egos, but they take a far less heroic route, and become rulers of the world. It's interesting, seeing how things could have been different if Johnathan and Martha Kent didn't raise young Kal-El to believe in truth, justice, and the American way, and if someone would have been there to tell young Bruce Wayne that his parents' death wasn't his fault. In this alternate world, we see other DC icons, including Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, and even Uncle Sam, face off against Superman and Batman, and the surprisingly grisly deaths that Loeb and artist Carlos Pacheco orchestrate are reason enough to check Public Enemies out. There's even cameos from Jonah Hex and a final battle with Ra's Al Ghul, and luckily this arc ends before it's premise wears even thinner. All in all, if you enjoyed Loeb's two previous volumes, this is worth checking out as well.
