    I don't think there's room enough on the boards for me to list them all.

    Batman - outside of Adam West, I just don't like anything about him or almost all of his villains (Catwoman might be the only one I can stand)
    Squirrel Girl - pretty much everything about her grates on every nerve I have (animal-themed, squirrel theme, deus ex machina beat everybody power, annoying "cuteness", absurd humour, 4th wall breaking)
    Sentry - too powerful; insane; uninteresting
    Moon Girl - generally, I don't like super-wunderkinds
    Deadpool - I don't like mercs, plus the humour, plus the 4th wall breaking
    Gwenpool - like the worst of Deadpool turned up a few notches
    Venom - I tolerated as an occasional extreme Spidey villain, but never as a protagonist, not even when Flash wore the suit
    Harley Quinn - too sexed up; she's a horrific villain and don't try to relabel her or make her suitable for kids
    Superman - It's been very tough since I left grammar school. While I don't want him to be edgy or dark, I just can't take the boy scout-ness.
    Spider-Man - I can't since the marriage ended. Until they retroactively bring the marriage back, his name is mud with me.
    Wolverine - He's just not the same character after 1993 or so.

    That's all I want to list for now.

    FLASH - Guy that runs fast in red PJ's has the personality of dry toast. Oh, please go on.

    Green Lantern - Let me get this straight a space cop drops a magic ring on you? OK I can see possibilities here. Wait, so you fight using a giant green boxing glove? No, not goofy at all.

    Aquaman - Just...stop.

    Inhumans - Karnak can stay. The rest of you should leave your keys on the table on the way out.

    Atom - So you get super small, right? Oh really, REALLY small? Sounds fascinating, no really.

    Richie Rich, The Poor little Rich Boy- Oh, so YOU got problems?

    Captain Marvel - So it's basically Rachel Maddow in space? Brilliant!

    Interesting concept. Read the first trade and didn't find the stories interesting, however.

    (Pretty much how I've read Azzarello overall.)

    You say 'goofy' like it's a bad thing.

    Yeah, it didn't grab me at all.

    I don't think I've read anything by Azzarello that I've liked. His work with Lee Bermejo, in particular, always strikes me as dour and joyless.

    I also could never get into Star Wars, seen the og and the prequels. They just don't move me.

    Same applies to LoTR

    I'm not sure if you read the old or new much longer edition, but it improves over the first three storylines. I wasn't convinced by the first book, Hang Up on the Hang Low is excellent.

    Try Doctor 13: Architecture and Morality - That's crazy silly fun and unlike anything else I've read by him.

    But it's a boxing glove made of magic green energy that can crush mountains! Not that goofy at all.

    For me its Deadpool. I tried, I promise I tried. His power set annoyed me to no end. His breaking the 4th wall that everyone seemed to love never appareled to me.

    That being said, I love the Deadpool movies!
    Oh yeah, Deadpool irks me to no end. Just this constant, "Look at me, I'm crazy crazy crazy!" vibe I get from him. Totally one note that's been played for far too long.

    Hellboy. His stories always seemed stale and self impressed, as if Mignola thought the stories he was penning were more clearer than they are in reality.

    Preacher I can appreciate a story with a despicable lead. Not every narrative has to center around a virtuous do gooder who always does what's best. However, what I hate is when a series doesn't acknowledge that it's protagonist is a morally reprehensible person, and even reveres it's protagonist for their heinous actions. This is exactly what Preacher is.
