The paranormal villain known as "Judge Mental" was the leader of the Forsaken. He hired the assassin known as "Quill" to kill Justice (Tensen).
Obviously this villain's name "Judge Mental" is a play on words, a homophone for "judgmental." Judge Mental styled himself after judges, wearing a judge's robe. He was a self-appointed defender of paranormals. Clearly Judge Mental felt entitled to judge people. He judged Justice as somebody who should be killed. It is not known whether Judge Mental was actually a "professional" judge (i.e., a sitting judge in the American legal system).
