  1. Supreme

    Supreme is a fictional superhero created by Rob Liefeld and first published by Image Comics, then Maximum Press, and later by Awesome Entertainment. He was originally a violent, egotistical Superman archetype, but was rebooted by Alan Moore to pay tribute to the classic Silver Age Superman mythos, as guided by Mort Weisinger. Supreme is also the name of a comic book series which lasted 56 issues. Moore started with issue #41 and his run would later be collected as two trade paperbacks by the Checker Book Publishing Group: Supreme: The Story of the Year and Supreme: The Return. Moore's work on the series won the 1997 Eisner Award for Best Writer.

Examples of Supreme in a Sentence

  1. Claude Lévi-Strauss:

    Since music is a language with some meaning at least for the immense majority of mankind, although only a tiny minority of people are capable of formulating a meaning in it, and since it is the only language with the contradictory attributes of being at once intelligible and untranslatable, the musical creator is a being comparable to the gods, and music itself the supreme mystery of the science of man, a mystery that all the various disciplines come up against and which holds the key to their progress.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    When you're surrounded by deepest darkness, it's hard to even think about a ray of Sunshine. Likewise it's difficult to think of justice, when you see the triumph of evil and deceit, and the defeat of truth and honesty all around us. Nonetheless, just as the first ray of Sun penetrates the dark and illuminates our world, the justice of Supreme Power prevails to uproot and smash the evil. The promise is that you will always get double of what was taken away from you; see e.g. the following lines from Holy Book: "Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever." The justice from Supreme Power shall thus prevail - always! Never lose the Hope and keep your Faith strong!

  3. Mwanandeke Kindembo:

    In the process of finding the true 'I' you have to become formless and infinite as the Supreme One. Become one with the universe.

  4. Mitch McConnell:

    Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party presidents Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.

  5. Brian Sandoval:

    Earlier today, I notified the White House that I do not wish to be considered at this time for possible nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States, the notion of being considered for a seat on the highest court in the land is beyond humbling and I am incredibly grateful to have been mentioned.
