Joe Kelly is one of comics' hottest writers, with highly acclaimed runs on Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men and Superman to his credit. Doug Mahnke has pencilled Superman: Man of Steel and Aliens: Stronghold. He is now the regular artist on Batman.From Booklist:
Kelly started the Elite to express annoyance at a fatalistic trend in modern comics. In the first story, Manchester Black and his superhero team--the Elite--announce a new world order in which heroism based on truth and justice is declared obsolete. The team will instead act immediately as judge, jury, and executioner. After reasoning with the new vigilantes fails, Superman plays hardball to put Black in his place without compromising the images of the hero and the leader. Well after Black's defeat, his sister Vera Lynn resurrects the Elite as a deep-cover team, vowing to play by the rules. Most team members have less-than-pristine pasts, yet Superman and the Justice League, though dubious of Elite espionage tactics, unofficially sanction it. Kelly's conception poses the piquant question, Can a superhero under deep cover and working with killers resist becoming a killer himself? Kelly presents the grays in his characters as well as their world with a realism that artwork distinguished by fluid, dynamic line work and bold inking crucially abets. Tina Coleman
