The teams first enemy is The Mandarin from Marvel with a different name (this will be a common theme in the series, another example being the Authority's two most dangerous members being a gay couple representing Batman & Superman). After the Mandarin they face down an invading force from a parallel alien inhabited Earth, a reality our Earth had been in contact with for a long time before communication ceased nearly 50 years ago. The final conflict is with God, yes the creator is back and not happy with what has happened to his planet.
Each of these battles shows new and interesting way the team uses their powers. The alien story was the best of the 3 for me as the team really finds its footing at that point.
The story follows 7 superheroes at the end of the 20th century (including a wonderful rendering of Batman & Superman as a gay super couple) through a couple of different story arcs.
