  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. Brett Kavanaugh:

    I know nominees who've sat in this chair in the past have expressed the desire for cameras in the courtroom, only to get to the Supreme Court and change their positions fairly rapidly, so that gives me some humility about making confident assertions about that.

  2. Craig Holman:

    We're going to see quite a bit of guerrilla theater -- a growing amount of it -- entering the 2016 election, having a gyrocopter land on the Capitol, or the protestors in the Supreme Court, just shows the anger.

  3. Bradley Jacobs:

    I wholeheartedly apologize for my behavior that evening that has embarrassed the Indiana Supreme Court, my fellow judges and all the members of my chosen profession. I can not offer any excuses for the events of that evening nor do I attempt to offer any excuses for those choices.

  4. Jonah Gelbach:

    Judge Orrick's court is a trial court and it follows the precedents of the 9th Circuit and the Supreme Court. He is not on equal footing of a 9th Circuit judge, in fact his court is inferior to the 9th Circuit, if Orrick has made a mistake of law then the government can count on winning an appeal should it choose to file one.

  5. Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen:

    From where I stand, I'm deeply disappointed that the House leadership would proceed in that way in something that is so obviously beneath the dignity of the offices they hold. It's really a new low for the current House of Representatives, we're talking about a matter, the census, in which the Supreme Court has already ruled, and we have moved on. So, the House has not identified some compelling legislative need for this. To the contrary this makes no sense at all.
