(Saturn Queen, Lightning Lord, and Cosmic King as depicted in Superman Batman Absolute Power)
You’re a member of a team of super villains from the 30th century but in spite of your super powers you can’t defeat the very capable Legion of Super Heroes! What can you do? You could travel back in time and eliminate Superman and Batman- two of the 21st century heroes who inspired the future champions to become heroes in their own era. That could work… but wouldn’t it be smarter to travel back to a point in time at which the infant Superman had not yet been adopted by the Kents and then find the right moment in history at which to take in the orphaned Bruce (Batman) Wayne! You could raise the two heroes as foster children and make certain they embody the same criminal impulses you cherish! Yeah, that could work… but it doesn’t! See how the plan unfolds and fails in the collection Superman Batman: Absolute Power by Jeph Loeb from Miss Tracey’s Young Adult Graphic Novel collection at the Marion Public Library!
