List Rules Vote up the lamest and worst Justice League members of all time.

When you think of superhero teams with some seriously powerful members, most people will bring up the Justice League. After all, it's the team that has the likes of Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Superman as some of its core members. On top of them, pretty much every major player in the DC Universe has been a member of the Justice League at one time or another. 

While that includes some seriously heavy hitters, it also means the team has had plenty of members who barely compare to the team's top-tier characters. For every Superman, there's an unpowered do-gooder with a few tricks and skills barely better than the average non-meta human. That's not to say these characters aren't great on their own, but when you compare them to Wonder Woman, Superman, or the Flash - well, there's no comparison.

They may not be lame, bad, or terrible, but when you compare these characters to the Justice League's best, these folks are pretty much the worst and weakest characters to belong to the team. Find your favorite... or rather, least favorite character down below and vote up the character you consider to be the worst member of the Justice League.

Mystek may look like a dude, but that's actually a Korean woman named Seong who posed as a man for some unexplained reason. She began her career as a supervillain, but saw the error of her ways and joined the side of good.

Eventually, the Martian Manhunter offered her a position on his Justice League Task Force, but she only ever managed to make it a single mission. On the first outing of the JLTF, the team shot into space, but Mystek couldn't cope with the cramped quarters of the spaceship. She ended up shooting a hole in the hull of the ship, and was promptly sucked into the vacuum of space... where she died.

Blue Jay is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Worst Justice League Members Ever

Blue Jay isn't exactly the most intimidating superhero to join the Justice League, but he does have the ability to shrink, and those wings are kind of cool. When he was recruited to Justice League Europe, he was wracked with self-doubt seeing as he didn't feel he was comparable to the powers of the other members of the team, and he was right.

He was soon elevated to the position of the team's commander, but it turned out this was a plot by Queen Bee to bring about the team's destruction. It couldn't have felt good to learn that all of his self-doubt was justified as a supervillain believed the best way to destroy a team was to make this guy its leader.

Geo-Force is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Worst Justice League Members Ever

Geo-Force is one of those characters who has a cool superpower, but he never really got off the ground as far as the fans were concerned. He has the ability to manipulate the gravitational field around objects to increase or decrease their weight. This is a useful tool, but he never really got a chance to showcase his talents.

Shortly after joining up with the Justice League, it was revealed that he was only placed on the team thanks to Deathstroke, who wanted a mole. He turned on his would-be benefactor to become a double-agent, but after the team was captured by the Injustice League, Geo-Force was tortured to the point of being useless to the team from that point forward. He managed a place on Batman's Outsiders, but that's about as far as the character has gone.

Black Condor is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Worst Justice League Members Ever

Black Condor is a rare example of a character created in the 1940s who passed on the title to another generation. Most characters simply stick around for decades, inexplicably refusing to age (Bruce Wayne being a perfect example). When the title was passed on to Ryan Kendall, fans were eager to see how this new character would handle the title of Black Condor, but the whole affair was little more than... meh.

Kendall managed to join up with the Justice League thanks to his powers of healing, flight, and telekinesis, but he barely made an impact in the comics. Fans weren't impressed, and it wasn't long before he became a background character the writers took care of by taking him out via Sinestro. The mantle would pass to others following Kendall, and while they would be more interesting and impactful, sadly, Kendall was not.
