At the time of World War II, Adolf Hitler got his hands on the spear which prevented any American superhero whose powers were born out of magic from intervening in the war, hence he created an axis of evil which helped conquer much of the world and establish a sphere of influence. In the end, he corrupted the weapon and anyone who wielded it.
President Bill Clinton ordered Superman to confront Spectre using the spear, instead, it corrupted the Man of Steel and he slayed all of his allies and close friends.
