This is the core issue addressed in SUPERMAN VS. THE ELITE, the new film from WB Animation. The Elite of the title are a new group of super powered humans, led by Manchester Black, who show up one day and offer their assistance to Superman. What starts out as a standard superhero team-up quickly goes bad as Superman realizes that The Elite have a far more Machiavellian approach to crime fighting than even Batman. These guys are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Enhanced interrogation, torture, maiming and murder are all on the menu. If Jack Bauer had superpowers, he’d feel right at home as a member of The Elite.
