Warren Ellis - Black Summer

Black Summer is a comic book series from the honorably vulgar mind of Warren Ellis.
Hailing from the defunct clan: the Seven Guns,
 (a superhero group who engineer a new technology in order to 
"fight a corrupt police force and criminal private security firms")
a superhero (adorned in symbols of the illuminati)
murders the President of the United States along with his entire staff
in response to the president ordering an "illegal" war in Iraq "predicated on lies".
It poses the question:
"What happens when a superhero's pursuit of justice 
leads him to the inexorable conclusion that he must kill his president to save his country?"
