** Mongul, the EvilOverlord of War World, who forced warriors to fight to the death in gladiatorial matches in order to [[BreadandCircuses take his people’s minds off his oppressing them]]. When Superman refuses to kill the former reigning champion, Draaga, after succeeding to defeat him, Mongul threatens to destroy Draaga’s planet if Superman doesn’t allow Monhul to kill him in his next match. After his efforts were foiled, Mongul returned for revenge against Superman, using a plant called the Black Mercy to [[LotusEaterMachine trap Superman in a perfect dream world]]. With Superman out of the picture, Mongul planned on turning Earth into a second War World. Superman was eventually able to free himself from the dream world, but the emotional pain of doing so was enough to make Superman actually try to kill Mongul before returning to his senses.

*** Huntress. This version of her adds a fun side to her personality. She also provides a great dynamic with The Question and Black Canary. The episode "Grudge Match" earned her a lot of love.

** A meta example: Remember the episode where the Flash and Lex switched bodies? Creator/MichaelRosenbaum voiced the Flash in ''Justice League'', and Lex in ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. They really ''did'' switch bodies!

*** Speaking of which, that episode also featured an AlternateTimeline version of Batman fighting against a totalitarian government as a leader of LaResistance. [[ComicBook/SupermanRedSon Surely,]] [[VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs we'd never]] [[ComicBook/BatmanHolyTerror see that]] [[ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns again...]]

** When CaptainAtom was originally imagined for DC Comics in the late 1980s he was a soldier framed for a crime he didn't commit and forced into an experiment that reincarnated him as a god like superhero who only reluctantly did the government's bidding because they were blackmailing him. Here he's portrayed as a spy and a MyCountryRightOrWrong type. This borders on TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter as a much compelling subplot and dynamic characterization could have been had from following his original characterization.

** Relating to Professor Emil Hamilton and his FaceHeelTurn after feeling "betrayed" by Superman in the finale of Superman's solo series, one has to wonder if Hamilton was always a narcissistic BitchInSheepsClothing who took too much pride in being Superman's personal Mr. Wizard ally, or if he was a genuinely good man who sadly never overcame the trauma of seeing just how destructive and dangerous Superman could be if he were evil or brainwashed into being evil. If the latter, did he really join CADMUS in JLU of his own free will or was he manipulated by Lex Luthor and Amanda Waller for their own ends? If the latter, does that make him a victim as well as a villain?

--> '''Mongul:''' I created a prison you couldn't leave without giving up everything you ever wanted. ''(sneering)'' It must have been like tearing off your own arm.
