The 'Batman having plans against the team' is both a fairly modern addition (first proposed in the mid 00s) and something that caused a schism within the team, not an official policy (also, he has no real Wonder Woman plan, because she has no weaknesses. In Nu52 he literally has an empty briefcase so he can show off he lack of WW plan).
For a psychic, taking her out when she's asleep seems a likelyhood, she only has passive defenses in that state.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm going off the assumption that if Tornado went rogue the HA is positive they are screwed. The JLA might not be able to take down Clark, but at least they have a chance as there's some other stupidly powerful heroes on the team. And Clark just is kind of their rock either way.
Eh, *individuals* on the team have taken down Clark before (I mean, 'throw Wonder Woman at mind-controlled Clark' has worked on multiple occasions). Almost every core JLA member has at least the potential to take down any other member or even the whole team with the right plan, and multiple members have done so (Batman's plans thing, Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter's evil side, and there was a time Kyle-Green Lantern subconsciously created a construct that imprisoned the whole team).
As for Tornado, there's Blast, and even Tatsumaki is intimidated by King's power, so there's two potential checks there. Though she is definitely is the HA's most reliable trump card.
Also, I will note that her being the most powerful wouldn't go away if she wasn't a member, and she lived without wrecking everything for some time before the HA came around. While she has a temper and is dangerous I don't think she's the type to 'go rogue.' Indeed, when she took a day off she found herself... bored, and went monster-hunting for fun.
