Justice League of America: The Nail (NOOK Comic with Zoom View)by Mark Farmer, Alan Davis
Taking place in an alternate reality, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: THE NAIL examines the nature of a world without Superman. Years in the past, a flat tire caused by a nail prevents the Kents from discovering a small rocket ship with an alien baby inside. As a result, the world's greatest hero never comes to be. Now, without a symbol of unimpeachable integrity or a selfless leader who inspires greatness in their ranks, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, the Atom, and Green Lantern must battle public contempt and personal mistrust as they attempt to work together to protect a world that fears them.

A world where Kal-El doesn't get found by the Kents. Simple premise that leads to an interesting story, pretty much It's a Wonderful Life but Superman is not complete erased for the world.
Like so many other Elseworlds books, this starts with the simple question, ¿ What would the DC universe be like if Superman had never been found by the Kents?¿ That question is answered by Alan Davis and Mark Farmer in this masterwork, and the answer is frightening. Without a Superman to check Lex Luthor, he¿s attained godlike political power, and his political platform is to criminalize all earth¿s heroes. Mysteriously, cameras are around to capture and misinterpret acts by various league members to make them look like monsters. Who¿s really behind the plan to wipe out the league is a shock, and the book has a nice twist ending. It¿s also stunning to see Alan Davis¿s artistic take on so many DC heroes. Everyone from Katana to Black Canary, from Catwoman to Killer Croc, it seems 50% of the DCU is crammed into this one graphic novel, but not in a way that feels forced or rushed. There are some very dark and disturbing moments in this volume, so it is better suited for older readers rather than younger ones. And because it¿s an Elseworlds it can be read by newcomers and veteran collectors alike. Highly recommended for comic book fans.
