The front line

The last chance

The final defense

The only hope

The Authority


A group of enhanced beings who fight the crime that no 'normal' police force or army could handle.

Borne from the remains of Stormwatch, The Authority is the law outside the law.


One thing 'different' about the characters in The Authority, is that Apollo and Midnighter are openly gay. But, all credit to the writers and artists, the relationship is handled very well. Neither character is feminised or depicted as camp and weak.

These are kick-ass superheroes with attitude, who are also shown being caring and tender to each other.

Why not go tell Wildstorm how impressed you are with these characters?
