The Justice League is arguably one of the most well-known superhero teams in comic books next to Marvel’s Avengers. But they have had a few hardships over the years with teams that were not successful. They’ve definitely had their fair share of ups and downs, but unfortunately, there can always be some rotten meat in the product line. Any group that has been around for a decent period is bound to have at least one or two bad eggs, but some are so downright horrible that they completely ruins that entire heroic spirit as you are reading through their comics.
With that said, these are the 5 worst Justice League superheroes of all time –
When you have to deal with a fictional character that gives other members of the creative team headaches simply due to their looks and/or demeanor, this usually means there was a slight problem with how they were conceptualized at first. Take for example the cartoon character Tasmanian Devil aka Hugh Dawkins, who is not only known for his nasty temper but also has a superpower that allows him to turn into a giant Tasmanian. That being said, Tasmanian Devil met one of the most fitting ends possible for such a character when it was revealed that he had his skin ripped off by Mister Sinister!
The actual adventure of DC’s Bloodwynd starts with a few blunders. The first is that he’s a superhero descended from slavery, which isn’t an intriguing point since we’ve seen it done on several occasions. The second is that his name has been used in association with the word “blood” and the occult or magic. And let us not forget how incompetent and indecisive was his entire clan in Capt. Atom/Suicide Squad #50 as well as how bland he came across for being a big bad.
In defense of Maxima, she has intimacy issues. Most folks have intimacy issues and they aren’t alien women that attempt to seduce the Earth’s mightiest heroes using mind games. She is after all a warrior by nature. Every single comic book character has an issue. You even stated so above, but seemingly ignored it here in your opinion on her flaws or perhaps out of spite for alien babes? It is indeed easy to declare such character as having a bad design just because it isn’t nuanced and deliberately written.
The DC Universe is filled with amazing superheroes, and people have come to love many of its interesting characters. Unfortunately, Blue Jay is a superhero who doesn’t really serve any purpose other than taking up a spot on the roster. Another thing to note is that he has been portrayed inconsistently over the years. As a result, it becomes hard for readers to gain an understanding of this lovable bird-themed hero. One example was in Justice League of America #87. When faced with dangerous intergalactic foe Starro, which was inside the body of JLA member Martian Manhunter, Blue Jay took on the role of team mascot while he proclaimed himself as a “hero”.
With a name like Mystek, you better be good in bed. Unfortunately, her biggest fans were likely her creators. Known as one of the shortest tenured members of the Justice Leagues she was many time’s lucky if she got to stay on the team for even a single mission or adventure before being kicked off and laughably dying during that time. Known for being found in discarded trash cans Mystek was eventually approached and offered membership (much too late) into the Justice League while they were traveling through space only to panic upon seeing how big it is (Clusterfrak! )
