So what did she do that was so bad as a memeber of SS?

The Squad was a black ops squad of fallen heroes and supervillains battling for parole. While Vixen was a member, they did things like carry off political assassinations, mount illegal covert operations in foreign countries, and so on. They were authorized to use and often did use lethal force. And eventually, they just became plain mercenaries for a tme before going back under government control. Vixen herself strangled a drug kingpin to death during what was arguably an illegal sting operation in her very first Squad mission.
