Grade 10 Up–When baby Superman's spaceship crashes into a Kansas field, three superbeings kill the Kents and take him for their own. Later, Bruce Wayne's parents, walking along Broadway, are shot right before the hood gets riddled with bullets himself. With the superbeings intervening at the so-called origin moments of both heroes, they then raise them to rule Earth. This scenario is carried to its logical limits, if its logical limits include random time-travel and the grown Bruce Wayne murdering his parents' murderers before they can perform their fated crime. Superman, given a similar chance, does not save the Kents. Obey or Die reads the inscription on the gigantic statue of Superman and Batman that replaces the Statue of Liberty, and do they ever enforce it. In the end chapters, though, they wake from their evil reverie, realize they've been raised by monsters, and repent by setting time right and canceling all other alternate worlds except the original one, in which they are beacons of good. It's a touching ending, but dystopian stories always seem more forgettable than classic morality tales.–John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

What if Superman and Batman are not heroes but dictators?.
The story is a bit confusing in some parts but fear not. Everything is explained in the course of it. It have great WTF moments. Some of them really made me gag.
Anyway, the price is good and the art is cool. Is not as beautiful and magnificent as Dupergirl storyline was but is a very much enjoyable book.
