Kingdom Come by Mark Waid, Alex Ross, & Todd Klein

What happens when superheroes have vanquished all their arch-nemeses and have subsequently lost their own moral compasses? Apparently, anything they want. Kingdom Come tells the story of the super- humans that follow in Super Man's footsteps and how the original Justice League must return from their retirement to correct their progeny's mistakes. It explores themes such as moral ambiguity and the "needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few."
