I was wondering about the Light's goals. You had us believe that every member is on the same page in regards to their objective: the betterment of mankind. You've also stated that like "real life villains", the members of the Light don't see themselves as such. And in truth, they don't want to "destroy the world" like most cliched villains. They want to elevate it and have THEIR WORLD rule the cosmos. (Surely they want to be at the top of that leather) So, their goal seems well-intentioned (if you overlook the whole "by every means necessary" thing. However, they're not the most scrupulous and noble of people on the planet. Individually, they are power hungry and petty. Ocean Master, for one, is envious of his brother and judging by the two-parter issue, he wants to grab power to himself.

So I guess my question is: are the members of the Light truly working towards the betterment of mankind or do some of them only play along because the Light itself is a means to an end (to gain more power and/or squash their rivals)?

I'll leave that to your interpretation. But - just to cite an example you've already cited - one could argue that Ocean-Master only wants power for himself. EXCEPT, it would suit the Light (and their overall goals) to have Orm as King of Atlantis, wouldn't it?
