Justice League Cartoon: Legends Episode

So yeah, that episode of The Justice League where Green Lantern, Flash, Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter all get transported to an alternate reality. I just rewatched it for the first time in like 8 years and I have come to realize something. 
 
The Justice League in that episode are a bunch of dicks. 
 
I mean they basically destroyed an entire universe. Killed a bunch of heroes. And why? Because 'they weren't real'.  
 
Dick move, JL. Dick move.

looks like you don't understand the meaning of the episode.
The people of Seaboard City were stuck in the fake reality. The survivors were happy that it came to end ("forty years in ice cream van"), they could finally rebuild the city.
As for the heroes of JGA, they willingly gave their lives to stop the monster who turned Seaboard City into his personal playground ("We died once to save this Earth. And we can do it again!"). Real or not, they were heroes.

Remember the episode "The Once and Future Thing: part 2" where they stuck Chronos in an infinite time loop of his wife yelling at him? I'd say that was pretty cruel, too...

Totally missing the point

I dunno guys. From the sounds of it there was nuclear fall out, which would take thousands of years to clear. People got mutated, and for all you know, it was the mutant boy's powers that were preventing everyone else from sharing his fate. 
 
The more intelligent thing to do would be to have the super powered telepath kid create a reality that was more beneficial, rather than just kill him and for everyone to live in a giant crater. And when the JL start tearing down the walls they didn't know what they were doing! GL was like 'I'm sorry, now you're trapped in a wasteland." He did something and then immediately started apologizing for it.  
 
It was bad writing, imo, that the writers just tried to fix at the end to make it work at the last minute.

if you try to use unstable superpowered beings to create "a reality that was more bebeficial", you'll end with another House of M or Age of X.

Hey, those were good storylines. 
 
And we're just talking about a single town, not an entire planet.

Yes. But I don't want to live in one of these worlds.

Well, in the end of the episode it was clear what the citisens of Seaboard City wanted. And it wasn't Ray's fake world.
