Because iFanboy were raving about Royals: Masters of War I decided to give it a look. It's not quite World War 2.1, but it's still decent.

The year is 1940. As the Blitz destroys London and kills thousands, the Royal Family looks on. But in this world, the only people with special abilities are Royalty, and the purer the bloodline, the greater their abilities. So why don't they stop the carnage with their powers? A truce between the Earth's nobles has kept them out of our wars--until now. When England's Prince Henry can take no more and intervenes, will it stop the planet's suffering or take it to another level?







It's just a short six issue mini from Vertigo that's a relatively quick read. Decent fun, but nothing spectacular.

And do alternate universe King Haakon and Queen Christina get involved as well? http://www.skjam.com/2017/02/18/book-review-last-hope-island/

Is it just European nobles with powers? 'Cause that seems skeevy...

If I remember correctly, people with powers happened to end up in those positions due to physical power being a useful skill in a monarch in the old days. But over the years the super-genes became, for want of a better word, diluted, so superhumans are somewhat wide spread, but the monarchy's habit of intermarrying for political reasons means they have a higher likelihood of getting powers.
