    I think that you are thinking of the Superman/Batman story Absolute Power.


    Identity Crisis is the one where Sue Dibny gets murdered. It's a superhero whodunnit. Very good.

    YES! Identity Crisis is amazing. Out of all of DC Comics "Crisis" storylines this one is easiest to follow, has the most emotional impact and deals with deep topics w/o being heavy handed. It sets up future story lines too, like why The Atom went missing before 52 started.

    I just saw some awesome pictures, with superheroes photo-chopped into them.


    Captain America is pictured with Heinrich Himmler as he inspects a prisoner-of-war camp in Russia in 1940-41

    Superman with soldiers from the 7th US Army carrying priceless artworks down the steps of Meunschwanstein Castle where art treasures, stolen by the Nazis, were hidden during World War II

    Spider-Man with US soldiers in Cherbourg, Normandy, France in 1944

    Darth Vader with Prime Minister Winston Churchill, US President Franklin D Roosevelt, and Russian Premier Josef Stalin at the Yalta Conference in February 1945

    The Joker standing on a external post defence on a hotel roof in Moscow in 1941
    The Flash is pictured with a surrendering German soldier at the end of the second world war
    The Incredible Hulk with Afghan resistance fighters returning to a village destroyed by Soviet forces in 1986
    V from V for Vendetta with soldiers of the Wehrmacht surrendering in Normandy on June 9, 1944
    I love these pics.

    never been a big comic book guy but did pick up nearly all the Aliens/Predator ones from the early 90s. I'm an easy mark for Aliens shit.

    I am trying to collect everything with this guy in it tho. Have got a bunch of stuff and am known to pay over the odds for it.



    Aside from that, the best ever comics were 'Milk & Cheese' and 'Scream!' - I've got complete sets of both.

    Advices required:

    have they ever made any dark (in a Batman sense, not evil) Superman comics? I'd be up for reading some Superman but I don't want anything too Golden Era.
