Superheroes Who Were Falsely Accused Of Heinous Crimes

Almost every comic book vigilante worth mentioning has found themselves wrongly accused of a serious crime at one point or another - heck, Spider-Man gets it on a daily basis from the Daily Bugle! But there’s a difference between being declared a public menace and having a superhero falsely accused of a truly heinous act, and that’s something that has only happened to a select few.

To be entirely fair, it’s not unheard of for a superhero to snap and do something horrible - Hal Jordan once wiped out the Green Lantern Corps, and Jean Grey went around eating suns for a while. However, when a hero is accused of crimes against humanity, it’s usually the result of a classic frame-up, leaving them to try to clear their name and continue saving the world at the same time.
