The Justice Lords are another example of an alternate version of the Justice League created for an animated series. In this case, it was 2003's Justice League episode "A Better World." In this reality, Lex Luthor became the President of the United States and decided to execute the Flash.

That didn't sit well with the Flash's friends, which is why an enraged Superman confronted Luthor in the Oval Office. Realizing he would never reform Luthor and keep him from committing such villainous acts, he incinerated him on the spot with his heat vision.

With the President out of the way and a new method devised to deal with villains, the Justice League rechristened themselves the Justice Lords and went about establishing a new world order under their "protection."

They came into conflict with the Justice League when they tried to instill their totalitarian rule on the DC Universe, but were finally stopped by Superman and his pals, which included Lex Luthor who became instrumental in stopping the Justice Lords and stripping them of their power.
