    Really don't like them at all.
    One of those things is not like the others. I mean, fair to dislike all three ... just saying.

    For me ... I don't hate them, but I'd probably say Dr. Strange and Dr. Fate. I appreciate the places both hold in their respective universes, but whenever I tried reading stories focused with them at the center ... just kinda boring, to me. And I can't really say why, because I can buy Mr. Fantastic or Mr. Terrific super-science stuff easily enough ... don't know why the magic stuff leaves me cold, but it just does.

    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.
    I can't think of any point in the series where Jesse Custer wasn't the most moral character.

    Good wow?

    Personally I loved it. Though if I'd read it without knowing the credits, I'd be convinced Grant Morrison had written it.

    Absolutely agreed. Fantastic artist, but I've never enjoyed his writing.

    It's been a while since I've read it, but I don't remember him doing anything that bad - beyond getting into a few fights.

    Attack on Titan: Boring one-two dimensional characters, a poorly told and structured story that makes no sense the more I look into it, events and conflicts that try to add unnecessary meat, and the one of the most useless protagonists to have in a story, he needs to be saved almost all the time.

    Game of Thrones: Almost all the characters are unlikable, the setting being used as an excuse for how terrible they are don't work for me, there are plenty of stories in that era and area with likable characters. And Reek is one that brays.

    Namor: I won't echo what Spike-X said. This prince of Atlantis is a grouchy grump I couldn't bear at all.

    Starfire and Raven: Two members of the Titans I do not care for, not when they bring their backstories and corner of the mythos.

    Flash is one of my favorites, has a nice charm to his character, and a nice personality. Barry Allen is my favorite of the three.

    As far as GL goes though; there are stories with creative ways to use the power ring. I remember reading an editor's letter in one of those Masterworks/Archive editions on Hal's book claiming that in his tenure as an editor writers and artists were not allowed to use the same thing twice, they needed to be creative.

    Same applies to LoTR
    I sometimes think you have a better chance of truly loving SW if you're below a certain critical age when first encountering it. If your first exposure is the OT, I'd say lower teens. If your first encounter is the PT, probably a bit younger, say 6-10.

    To some degree Superman. He's just not a character I'd ever want to read monthly about. Movies or cartoons, sure. Comics nah not even if the storyline is really good.

    NFL SuperPro (Marvel Comics) is the one comic book I cannot get into. I can't believe it had 12 issues plus a special.

    Batman
    Superman
    Wonder Woman
    Green Lantern
    Captain America
    Thor
    Hulk
    Wolverine
    Cyclops
    Deadpool
    Fantastic Four
    Spider-Man
    Doctor Strange

    All characters (likely forgetting to list some) that I have tried numerous times to “get into”. Sometimes I feel it was timing (who was writing/drawing them at the time), but maybe not?

    This is strictly comics, by the way. I enjoy many of these character in other media (animation and movies, mostly) with, I think, Hulk and Cyclops being the only two I can’t like anywhere.

    I suggest reading All Star Superman, Birthright, and the John Byrne reboot from Man of Steel to his end of run on Action Comics and Superman volume 2. If you've checked them out already then you should try Golden Age and Silver Age stories, don't try to take them seriously cause they are made to be taken more lightheartedly.

    Game of Thrones. Especially the books that i found to be not so greatly written and needlessly vulgar. (only read the 3 first, gave up after that)

    Only watched the first season of the show. Which to be fair is decent enough but nothing really who made me wanna watch more.

    He also saved a herd of wild horses from being slaughtered, which seems pretty seems like a pretty moral thing to do.
