Nope, not hardly. There was a sort of mini-trend for a while, when the Authority was the Really Big Deal in the WS Universe, when every other WS writer had to have their team take on the Authority and beat them, more or less. Micah Wright had his non-superpowered-but-not-really version of Stormwatch beat them by a variety of dei ex machina (a quasi-magic bullet for Apollo, a literal remote-control off-switch for Midnighter, etc); Grant Morrison-wannabe Doselle Young had the Monarchy fight an alternative-universe version of the Authority; Kev beat them with another quasi-magic bullet; The Establishment retconned away the destruction of London in Warren Ellis' first Authority arc, while using various bits and pieces of Ellis' and Alan Moore's Wildstorm plots as grist for stories. Even Mark Millar, in his own Authority run, had the team beaten by a cyborg that had literally every superpower possible.
In a weird way, it's sort of a backhanded tribute to the influence of Ellis on the Wildstorm universe that all of these books, which were basically Authority spinoffs, had to defeat or at least challenge the mother team in some sort of Oedipal conflict, but it became self-parodying very fast--if someone had convinced Jim Lee to publish a comic book about a Girl Scout troop, they'd have had the Midnighter laying in a pool of blood by issue 3. (Even the Stormwatch "Post Human Division" re-reboot, which came a few years after the above series, had to fight them.)
