''Squadron Supreme'' came into its own in Mark Gruenwald's 1985 limited series. It takes place on a post-apocalyptic Earth; flashbacks reveal that the Squadron Supreme was dominated by the alien Overmind, who used them to turn the United States into a fascist nation and conquer the planet. After the defeat of the Overmind, the Squadron decide that the best and fastest way to repair the shattered infrastructure, quell civil unrest, and restore people's faith is to take control of the world and get it back on track. The Squadron also decide to take the opportunity to address ''all'' of the world's problems, vowing to eliminate hunger, crime, war, poverty, and disease. With little resistance, the Squadron appear on national television and announce their "Utopia Program", promising to return control after a year.

* CrossOver: In addition to the Squadron being a team of {{Captain Ersatz}}es from Marvel's "distinguished competition", the limited series also had a CrossOver with ''CaptainAmerica''. Both titles were written by Mark Gruenwald at the time.

* {{Foil}}: Foxfire and Mink. Both start out as straightforward villains, then their alignments go off in different tangents. [[spoiler: Foxfire is put through the behavior modification device and forced to join the Squadron, entering into a relationship with Spectrum. Mink decides to join Nighthawk's resistance against the Squadron, coming to love him and feeling like she's now got a purpose in her life. Foxfire wasn't given a choice in joining her side, but Mink was. Foxfire's relationship with Spectrum is not an entirely healthy one due to the implications behind the behavior modification device taking away her ability to say no to the Squadron, while Mink's attraction to Nighthawk occurred naturally. When Foxfire's mind is freed from the behavior modification, she ends up siding with the Squadron legitimately because of the feelings she still has for Spectrum, even admitting she didn't care about them violating her mind. Mink sides with Nighthawk's group because she believes in what they're doing without any outside interference and stays with it also because of her love. They're both then motivated by their respective relationships. Foxfire kills Nighthawk to prove to Spectrum she's still with the Squadron, and Mink kills Foxfire to avenge him. The woman whose love grew from unnatural means died while the woman whose love grew naturally lives, albeit her lover is dead.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: What Amphibian views the Squadron as later on. [[spoiler: When everyone decides to vote on the punishment for Archer modifying Lady Lark's mind to make her love him, Amphibian voices his disgust at the entire situation. It's not that he believes Archer is innocent, but is appalled at the Squadron judging him for using the modification device to alter Lady Lark's mind... which is exactly what they've done to the Institute of Evil and plan to do to all other criminals.]]
