As the 21st century dawns, the Authority meets a previously unchallenged class of villains-the power brokers who manipulate the world's political figureheads to advance their own selfish interests. So when the Authority begins to seriously upset their hard-won networks of control, the backlash that results is as swift as it is devastating.
