Written by Daniel Way

The second of two SUPREME POWER specials! As a young boy, Kyle Richmond-the man who would one day become Nighthawk-witnessed the senseless murder of his parents. There was no reason for their deaths, no provocation -- they were just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was a traumatic event that has left him scarred for life-and turned him into a hero more feared than the criminals he polices. Now it's happening again...but on a much larger scale. The people of Chicago-men, women and children-are dying in the streets, victims of a monster whose thirst for slaughter cannot be quenched, whose soul is a bottomless void, and whose scars run even deeper than Nighthawk's. Long ago, Kyle Richmond looked into the face of madness-now, it's looking back at him. And it's flashing a killer smile.

SQUADRON SUPREME TPB (4th)
Written by MARK GRUENWALD


Penciled by JOHN BUSCEMA, BOB HALL, PAUL RYAN & PAUL NEARY


Cover by ALEX ROSS


New printing! Before Watchmen, before MARVELS, before Kingdom Come - there was Squadron Supreme, a deconstructionist parable of the super-hero 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, they choose the only course available to them - and take control of the world's governments themselves. Now they have one year in which to completely restructure human society. Can their plan succeed? Will a renegade member bring about their downfall? And what will happen when the Earth's mightiest heroes find themselves becoming instead its all-powerful, totalitarian overlords? Considered by many to be the finest work of the late Mark Gruenwald, the original groundbreaking series is collected here in its entirety.
