Justice League can be termed as the world’s noblest heroes and yes, they’ve saved the Earth plenty of times from Alien forces and evil villains but there have been times reh they have been questioned. Justice League has had their fair share of evil and today we will tell you about 10 times when Justice League members did something really horrible.
Wonder Woman breaks Maxwell Lord’s neck
Maxwell Lord fears Justice League. He’s a villain with mind controlling telepathic abilities and he controls Superman and sends him on a rampage on Earth.

Guy Gardener isn’t the best guy you’d like to work with. His cocky attitude and arrogance makes him get into various splits with Batman but over the years, both have teamed up well.
