The Justice League or Justice League of America (JLA) is arguably the most well-known superhero team in comics next to Marvel’s Avengers and includes DC Comic’s most notable heroes among its roster. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash…the Justice League‘s ranks are overflowing with comic icons. While the core group is about as great a team as you can get, they’ve also had a revolving door of team members over the years…and not all have been winners. Any superhero team that has counted well over 50 members among its ranks at one time or another is bound to have had some duds, but some are so unquestionably awful, it makes one wonder what DC writers were thinking when they approved some of these clunkers. The following 10 superheroes may have official Justice League status, but that doesn’t mean they deserve to stand alongside the likes of Batman. If anything, they belong on the superhero history scrap heap.
10. Tasmanian Devil
When your character is the subject of a popular fan-made origin meant to mock the ridiculousness of the character in question, you know you’re dealing with a subpar creation. The Tasmanian Devil, AKA Hugh Dawkins, is a metahuman with the ability to transform into a giant Tasmanian Devil, with all the powers that come along with such a superpower (basically super strength and having claws and teeth). Tasmanian Devil is just one of those characters that makes you scratch your head and assume that, during the character creation process, all of the good animal-themed superhero ideas were already taken. To be fair, Tasmanian Devil met one of the most fitting ends possible for such a character, as the villain Prometheus skinned him and made his pelt into a rug. In typical comic retcon fashion however, ‘Tas’ was later resurrected, causing all five Tasmanian Devil fans to collectively roar in approval.
