Info édition : Contient The Authority (1999) #22-29. Noté "First printing". Grant Morrison n'est pas crédité dans l'album mais il est maintenant prouvé qu'il a co-écrit le #28 avec Mark Millar.
Résumé: Just when the Authority is at the height of their power, in the blink of an eye they are shattered and defeated. Taking their place is a new team with the same powers, looking vaguely similar, but possessing none of the original team's empathy, kindness, and humanity. How could this happen? And what was the fate of the original team's members?
