A highly influential take on the notion of the superhero team that would arguably lead to the cinematic version of The Avengers that we know and like quite a bit. But who are The Authority, and why should we care?
Rob, Clive and CycloMedia lay out the characters and story beats of a comics series that still has a lot of bite.
