History

Kingdom Come is a four-issue Elseworlds story written by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, with artwork by Alex Ross. It is set in the year 2020 where Superman and his generation of heroes from the Justice League days have been succeeded by a new generation of heroes whose ideals are more nihilistic, caring less about the people they're supposed to protect and more about their own egos, and are found even clashing with each other as much as they do with the villains. It is when a major disaster happens when Superman decides to rein in the new generation of heroes in the hopes that they would reform and adopt his generation's ideals of what being a superhero is about. Unfortunately, most of his successors see Superman's ideas of reformation as more of a threat to their own personal freedom and so band together to engage in battle against him, the Justice League, and anyone who is on Superman's side. Matters aren't helped much when Lex Luthor and his Mankind Liberation Front manipulates things to bring about this eventual conflict, including brainwashing Captain Marvel into serving their purposes. And humanity itself has its own answer to dealing with a horde of superpowerful beings bent on destruction: a bomb which they drop upon this unruly crowd that annihilates most if not all of the superheroes. It is then that Superman must come to terms of how superheroes should act, including himself, whether protecting humanity must mean people like him must rule over them.

This mini-series was followed by a related mini-series called The Kingdom, in which heroes that inhabited the reality of Kingdom Come had crossed over into the mainstream reality via Hypertime in order to stop Gog and his murderous campaign against Superman in various realities. It was later followed by another story series called Thy Kingdom Come.

Trivia

  • Kingdom Come shares some similarity with the storyline presented in Marvel Comics' Squadron Supreme 12-issue mini-series, where the team serving as analogs of the Justice League attempt to rein in superhumans following a crisis that took place on their world.
  • The series was written as a commentary regarding the ethics of the superheroes that emerged during the "new comics" period of the 1990s, particularly those published by Image Comics, with Magog and his generation of superheroes serving as analogs to those characters.
