Superman of the Justice Lords is one of the most frightening aspects imaginable - the unstoppable power of the Man of Steel turned mad and warped into a dictator who will gladly crush his enemies to pulp in order to preserve the "greater good": though this ruthless overlord has taken to using his natural Kryptonian heat-vision to perform crude but terribly effective lobotomies on those that would threaten his rule - making them virtually mindless drones in the process.
Superman would also be the one to try and push the Justice Lords to conquer other realities, despite the fact that many in his native reality had began to question him (especially Lois Lane) - yet the Justice Lords obeyed his will regardless and soon the two teams would clash as the Justice Lords Superman tried to replace the mainstream "Man of Steel" but was clearly a more ruthless anti-villain and a potential tyrant, lacking the restraint that Clark had (which often seemed to limit him but in reality may be one of his greatest strengths as a hero).
In the end, the Justice Lords version of Superman would show just how far down the path of darkness he was willing to go when he showed a willingness to kill the mainstream Flash (whose death in his world caused him to become the dictator he is today) - yet in an ironic defeat he was depowered by mainstream Lex Luthor, who formed a brief alliance with the mainstream Superman to bring down the would-be-conqueror.
