* WonderMan, the first [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avenger]] to join the team after Captain America, was one of these. An industrialist driven out of business by Tony Stark, he was approached by the [[MastersOfEvilFoundingMembers Masters of Evil]] and offered superpowers and revenge. It wasn't until after he'd gotten his [[SuperStrength powers]] that the Masters revealed the catch -that his powers would kill him without regular treatments that only [[NaziNobleman Baron Zemo]] could provide - and sent him to infiltrate the Avengers. Since GoodFeelsGood, though, Wonder Man discovered he preferred being a hero and ended up saving the team from the Masters' trap at the cost of [[RedemptionEqualsDeath his own life]]. (Being comics, he got better. Then worse. [[DeathIsCheap Then better again]].)

* Senna from ''Literature/{{Everworld}}''.

to:

* Senna from ''Literature/{{Everworld}}''.''Literature/{{Everworld}}'' is sort of an odd example--she technically put together the group, but keeps flitting in and out of it herself (until book #7, when she stays with them until her final betrayal). She's definitely a TokenEvilTeammate, though, and after a while doesn't even try to conceal the fact that she's manipulating them, though she keeps her exact plans hidden. Unfortunately, the others have to put up with her, since she's MacGuffinSuperPerson and the only one who can bring them home.



** Rather amusingly, Spike plays the SixthRangerTraitor role in season 4 -- selling out Buffy and the Scoobies to Adam - despite the fact that he makes no bones about being evil and hating the Scoobies the whole time:
