Re: It's not just them..
Good ruler or not, what Atom Smasher did was what no hero should do, toppling a government and needlessly killing soldiers. Hell, he even tried to kill a gutted Hourman!
And while yes, Waller was responsible for what happened following the ambush, Atom Smasher knew what she did and said/did nothing, save use it as blackmail for his own freedom. Isn't a hero supposed to do the right thing regardless of the consquences?
