The Elite is a band of powerful metahumans led by the telepath Manchester Black. They dispatched criminals and the world's problems using any means necessary, including murder, and used their powers as a means to operate above international law. Superman attempted to insinuate his morality on the group and challenged them to preserve life. While they did save civilians trapped in the Channel Tunnel, the Elite continued with its extremist mantra and executed both key political figures in the Bialyan and Pokolistani governments and the supervillain Atomic Skull.
Superman had enough and took a stand against them. Their battle was recorded on the Moon and broadcast to Earth. After the Elite killed Superman, Superman emerged and fought them unrestricted by his personal rules. Superman killed off one member of the Elite at at time until it was just him and Manchester left. Superman used his heat vision to neutralize Manchester's powers and revealed it was a sham to prove his point. The Elite were all captured and incarcerated for their crimes against humanity.
