Comics with superheroes with a human nature

A Listmania! list by A. Dettorre
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "If you're like me, you love superhero comics. However, most times they feel fake or distant from actual humanity. I am a huge fan of comics that show the human factor of corruption and struggles that we go through every day."

Empire
3.  Empire by Mark Waid

A God Somewhere
7.  A God Somewhere by John Arcudi

Wolverine: Old Man Logan
8.  Wolverine: Old Man Logan by Mark Millar
