Wasn't the Authority like that?  And the Squadron Supreme? I didn't
read either of those because I've been in Asia for so long and I
haven't had access to any comics but the idea of heroes "changing
things" and "making a new status quo" is scary if you take it
seriously: they basically would use their powers to exert authority
over others.  It isn't a good thing.
