If there is one member of the X-Men that you can trust and have total faith in, is Wolverine. The guy, as brute as he might be lives by a code. But there were some instances where he betrayed his team, in Old Man Logan he is taken over by Mysterio’s illusions, because of which he murders the entire X-Men.

Well, this one sure can be a matter of debate, but we have to agree to the fact that Tony Stark did betray everyone who once was his friends by siding with the govt. and supporting the Superhero Registration Act. Even in the comics, the billionaire is presented as the antagonist for most of the time, leading to Captain America’s pseudo-death.



This might be somewhat of an argument again, but in the Dark Phoenix saga, when he tries to save his fellow mutants, Cyclops himself gets taken over by the Phoenix force, and under its influence kills Professor X, and gets into numerous fights with his earlier teammates. Not only that, he attacks humans and mutants alike with his new team.



The boy scout nature of Superman is nothing new to the fans, but in Injustice: Gods Among Us, the Man Of Steel kills. He, when under the influence of a drug given to him by Joker, kills Lois Lane and his unborn child, that lead to the destruction of Metropolis, snaps. And that’s bad, he starts by killing Joker and then creates world peace by enforcing it and eventually has to be stopped by Batman who brings a Superman from an alternate universe.



Batman is known to be the one who’s prepared for all possibilities, this was the case in the arc, Justice League: Tower Of Babel, where the caped crusader had made all the contingency plans to stop every Justice League member, if they went rogue, these plans are stolen by Ra’s Al Ghul and used against the league. Though he’s stopped, the league now distrust the Bat, who even leaves the team for some time.
