Characters I don't really like that much

I just want to let you know that I am not making this list because I'm trying to be a hater nor am I trying to antagonize these characters' fans. If you like these characters, that's perfectly fine. I'm sure there are characters you yourself hate that I particularly like, which is fine as well. The only reason why I'm making this thread is because I thought about it for some time and now I decided to make it.

Few thing to keep in mind tho is that, first off, not all of the characters on this list are the ones I hate. Some I just don't like or am just not particularly fond of. So you will see me talking about characters that I either hate, don't like or I just think are kinda meh. This list is in no particular order and keep in mind that I will not be including non comic versions of the characters. Alternate versions still count however.

Dishonorable Mention:


No Caption Provided

I decided to put Justice League as (dis)honorable mention because I think it would be stupid to put the entire team on this list, especially a team composed of characters I don't have any problem with (Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter/Cyborg, Aquaman...), characters I like (Batman, Superman...) and the ones I absolutely adore (Barry Allen, Hal Jordan...). But why would DC's most iconic and popular team be on this list? Well, the answer is literally just because of two things I just brought up. This is DC's most iconic team and is composed of DC's most iconic heroes, two of which are actually my favorite DC characters. So the fact that I find this team to be extremely uninteresting really does make me put it here just because a team like this should not make me feel that way.

I'm telling you, if I wasn't a part of site, I would probably drop JL titles altogether, because the only reason why I kept going is because of feats. The huge majority of Justice League stories are pretty lackluster to me, and my favorite ones like Trial by Fire or Darkseid War are not anything spectacular. The biggest problem with this team is that they are firemen and nothing else. What I mean by that is that, this team is full of stories where random villains appear and cause destruction and JLA teams up to deal with them, without those villains having any interesting connections with the heroes themselves. And when do not do that, they sit in the Watchtower talking about completely uninteresting things. There is almost zero character development in these stories with these heroes.

I think it has something to do with the fact that all these characters have their own separate runs, titles and writers which allow them to tell their own stories and showcase character development, while JLA titles mostly focus on team being together and facing with threats they can only deal with together. But if you want to ignore character development you need to at least give us some good villains, and besides Fernus, Darkseid, Grail and Amazo, I don't find myself enjoying any of the JLA villains. And even if you don't want to spend so much time on villains, focus on team itself. Make it mean something. Show some character dynamic. Show us how they feel about being on this team without just trash talking members they don't like or making jokes about them.

I don't want to sound like a mean asshole but most of the JLA comics focuses on no dynamic between characters (like with Clark and Diana or Barry and Hal, not even with Superman and Batman, apparently because they have their own title for that) but team mostly doing nothing interesting until a threat that mostly has no dynamic with any of the characters shows up and they stop it in a way, with most of the dialogue being nothing but characters explaining more exposition. I heard a lot of people claiming how Grant Morrison's JLA run is one of the best runs in history of comics and I was pretty excited because I know Morrison is a great writer and one of my personal favorites. And you have no idea how much willpower it took me to read the whole run because of how boring it was.

Again, JLA is not terrible. Far from it. But the fact that the most iconic DC team composed of most iconic DC heroes makes me feel the way I feel, I think it deserves more hate in this particular situation.
