Snark Free Theme Day for 11/4

Today's theme is one that is occuring in the pages of Ultimates now, which is "traitor on the superhero team."

1. Quicksilver betrayed the Avengers in the mid-80s, as he blamed them for everything bad in his life, but ultimately, he could not destroy them, what with his sister being an Avenger and all.

2. Mockingbird was sort of a traitor when she worked with the world governments to dismantle the Vision. She did not know it involved dismantling the Vision, but she must have known it wasn't going to be fun and games for the Vision.

3. Terra was not only a traitor on the Titans, but she apparently also liked to sleep with older men (creeeeeeeeeeepy).

4. The Thunderbolts had a fun twist when the "traitors" on their team were the ones who decided NOT to be bad guys.

5. The X-Men had a traitor, and it turned out to be Professor Xavier, whose mind had snapped when he mind-wiped Magneto (Magneto's evil personality merged with Xavier, driving Xavier batty).

6. The Justice League's official mascot, Snapper Carr, betrayed them to the Joker, for no real reason that I can recall.

7. If the Suicide Squad counts, then Boomerang betrayed them every other issue...hehe.

8. Hal Jordan betrayed the Green Lantern Corps when he was (snicker) possessed by Parrallax and forced to kill some Lanterns in his quest to gain the power of the Guardians (so he could fix Coast City).

9. Hawkman betrayed Justice League International when it was revealed that he was a spy by Thanagar.

Any more?

Teeeeeechnically, neither Hawkman or Terra were traitors.

"Traitor" means "betrayal", which means at one point they were good guys.

Terra and Hawkman (Carter Hall Jr) were just evil and only joined the teams TO infiltrate them.

Well, they gained the trust of the team and then betrayed that trust, I think that qualifies them as traitors. Turncoats or defectors, no, but traitors certainly.

Don't forget DC's Millenium series where several supporting charecters were Manhunter agents. Most of them weren't very memorable, but they did include Lana Lang.

I recall there was some brainwashing involved, so they may not have all counted as traitors.

Blackblood out of the ABC Warriors. And then in the second series Deadlock turned out the be a traitor as well.

If you don't know what the hell I'm on about, you missed a treat.
