Big Barda has been around since 1971 and has never had her ongoing series. I'm not implying all long running characters deserve an ongoing series. However, Big Barda is, in my opinion, one of the most awesome characters the DC Universe has. With the help of Scott Free, Big Barda overcame the brainwashing of Darkseid and became a pillar of moral character. Super Strong, Super Tough, Beautiful and Vicious. I hope that Barda can receive a new life in the new 52. She's just to great a character to keep stuck in limbo. P.S. when she became a green lantern in JLA: Another Nail, it was awesome
I understand why Mr. Miracle isn't necessarily the first choice when it comes to receiving a series. His original gimmick left for not a lot different plots. Basically if he didn't get captured in some crazy, inescapable mechanism then it didn't have anything to do with him. In recent years, his powers of escape extended and made him a great tactician and combatant
Barda and Scott Free
One thing that DC, and a lot of other comic companies, doesn't discuss enough is an in depth portrayal of a married Super Family. Not only are they married,but they happily in love and it could be interesting to see further. Plus there aren't a lot of heroes whose wives kick more ass than the man.
Lady Shiva is completely awesome. She's been badass since appearing in Richard Dragon and has only gotten cooler. I love her portrayal in The Question the most. A woman who isn't really evil, but just loves to fight. She's a Blood Knight and an Anti-Hero. She kills, yet will save Vic Sage's life just because he has a warrior's passion. Shiva's character is complex and a little crazy and could really have good material if explored further.
It's hard for DC to commit to Terry. Because it commits to the fact that Batman will get old and will have to retire.
Guardians are just awesome, like nextwave. Sometimes they're silly, but they will always be great.
Vixen has been a major supporting character in the DC Universe since her inception. I really would like to see her in her own series. After the awesome Vixen: Return of The Lion, we see that Mari still has time to grow and become a better person. No longer needing her Tantu totem means her powers could be growing stronger. How strong? I wish we could find out
Renee Montoya was great in Gotham Central, great in Batman No mans land, spectacular in 52 and even Gotham Girls. And know she's awesome as the question. However, since her backup feature in Detective Comics ended. She's been a know show. The Character of the Question is probably in my top five heroes, so this discerns me the most. I assumed she'd be front in center in the new 52. 19 weeks later and only one picture appearance in the Batwoman book. Please don't let this character die she's strong, she's cool, she's strategic, and at the risk of sounding redundant, she's awesome.
If I can't get Renee Montoya as The Question, then dammit I want Vic Sage back. Bring him back, at least as some sort of mentor to Renee or possibly as an entirely new character. But Vic is great and deserves a new life in the New 52.
A lot of people don't even know who Silhouette Chord is. She was a great member of the New Warriors. A disabled member who can teleport to different places. But it was character that was the best. She was shot and paralyzed from the waist down and still decided to be a hero. I liken her to Oracle in that regard
Now I love the Heroes For Hire books. However, Misty can't seem to separate herself from that title. She's a great in their as leader and all around chestmaster of her team. But it would better if she would get on her own. Get some common enemies. Let the readers actually learn about her life.
In closing these are the characters I like to see more in the limelight of their respective universes. I am by no meaning saying this is some injustice or anything I just feel they would be better if they were used more.

These were the thoughts I had about the DC Reboot before it happened
I used to think that all reboots were bad. I loved the classic stories and histories that characters have and I was very adverse to change. I didn't care how many universes DC had, and quite frankly I still don't. But as I've gotten older and more mature, I've learned that there is nothing wrong with change and in as countless examples can showcase, sometimes it's for the better.
