History

"Absolute Power" is a Superman/Batman storyline written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Carlos Pacheco

Lightning Lord, Saturn Queen, and Cosmic King — the Legion of Super-Villains from the 31st century — eliminate members of the Justice League of America, except for young Superman and Batman, whom they raise as their own children. Batman and Superman are raised to be dictators of the world, eliminating all opposition and killing people who would otherwise be their friends. During a fight with Wonder Woman and the Freedom Fighters, as Uncle Sam has been given Hal Jordan's power ring, during which Batman is killed but Superman is able to kill Diana with her lasso, the timeline is thrown into chaos, and the two men travel through alternate timelines.

Darkseid makes a deal with them in one reality to send them back through time to stop the supervillains who raised them from altering history. However when trying to change Batman's history back, Batman breaks down and shoots Joe Chill. Lightning Lord, Saturn Queen, and Cosmic King then team up with Ra's al Ghul to take over the world. Superman and Batman restore history, but the murders they committed haunt them.
