Alan Moore turned the superhero universe on its ear with 1986's WATCHMEN. WATCHMEN was a reworking of the comics of the industry's heyday in the 1940s and 1950s, but it was the real world that threatened these characters far more than any super villain. This is one of the biggest and most respected classics in all of comics!
