** However, the actions of the team during their takeover of the United States definitely lean towards the Nominal Hero sobriquet of their team, especially since Jack Hawksmoor had ordered two buildings to morph in order to an injured Swift while blatantly saying he didn't care that the civilians inside the buildings would most likely be killed.

The original series appeared in May, 1999. The story continued on from the recently cancelled ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}'', where most of the team members first appeared during Ellis's run. Ellis started ''The Authority'' by blowing up UsefulNotes/{{Moscow}} and continued in suitably bombastic fashion, threatening the Earth with an imperialistic army from an alternate universe and a battle with [[GodIsEvil God]] itself. Hitch's detailed but kinetic panels conveyed the action with aplomb and the series's style essentially spawned the trend for {{Decompressed Comic}}s.

* MartialPacifistL Swift. She's a self-admitted Buddhist and strictly abhors violence despite using it for the reason that doing so would prevent the occurrence of more violence and death. However, later issues shows that she is Buddhist in name only as she displays a devil-may-care attitude to killing opponents regardless of threat level and a willingness to anonymous sex with anyone with comedic consistency.

** When Midnighter was turned into an enemy against the rest of the team, he managed to sneak into the Carrier Lab and put on a metallic formfitting suit which he used to beat Apollo to a pulp in a manner reminiscent to Batman fighting Superman in ''The Dark Knight Returns''.

** The G7 version of The Authority gives us The Colonel. Who fits this trope to a T.He's a repugnant misogynistic asshole and damn proud of it. And then there's ''Last Call'' who may be the most vile depiction of a homophobic character to ever be featured in a mainstream comic book.

It took me a long time to work out what I was here for, and here at the end of the century I finally sorted it out. I'm here to save the earth. I'm here to get us all through the century. You might think this planet behind us is yours to use, ut here's the news: this earth is under new management. ''This world is'' '''mine.'''"
