5) LA DAMA
Okay, yes: Amparo Cardenas is a ruthless crime lord, I grant you. But in her first appearances, she exists in the ‘One Year Later” DC Universe, where the most powerful heroes are gone and chaos reigns. In that context, her quest to collect magical artifacts to protect her family (including Blue Beetle’s close pal Brenda) from the wild and wooly forces that surround them makes perfect sense. Even if you factor in the selfish “protect my evil interests” portion of it, you can’t blame her for being a bit selfish in a world where Superman is gone and nobody is in control of anything, can you?
