    Almost all teen heroes get scolded by parents. I mean, it's practically required. Kon got scolded by Dub, Cassie's mom was mad about the B in history, and let's not get started on Bart and Max.
    No, i don't give crap about tim get scolded by his father.... I care about Batman get scolded by Tim's Father... No, father or adult figure can scold Batman. Is Tim's father danse, he's retarded or something... This is the god damn Batman.

    Harley Quinn getting off scot-free in Injustice despite being as much as responsible for the events of the series as the Joker was while Superman, Wonder Woman, and others get thrown under the bus. Soured me on the character permanently.

    AGREED!!! The thing I liked about Meltzer and Priest's Deathstroke was that they showed readers the scumbag Slade truly is and didn't sweep it under the rug like DC did in the 90's when they tried to turn Slade into an anti-hero out of all things, FFS.

    And Jack is/was Tim's father. His damn job is to stand up to someone who he feels puts his son in danger even if he has no chance to actually present a threat to Bruce.

    He'd be a pretty awful dad if he just rolled with it.

    He rolled with it in the end... xD But first Scolded The Batman... That was really stupidly handeled... Bruce was all mumbling infront of him, didn't know what to say... It was so emberasing and cringy... Well, whatever, Tim's retarded father is dead now. 6 feet under dirt... He got his punishment.

    Harley Quinn getting off scot free in mainstream continuity, all too often. There was a Batgirl comic in which she shows up because Waller gave her a "furlough day." You'd think that this would make no sense at all, because she's a murderous sociopath and might try to hurt someone. And, in fact, she exposes some douche techbro - and everyone around him - to some bioengineered virus. (Even less funny today.) And makes Batgirl and her friends go on a hunt for the cure before it kills him (and everyone).

    Ad at the end, Batgirl and her friends act like it was just a fun time - "Let's do this again next year!" (I think it was a Christmas issue.) And they let Harley wander off, looking all cute and mischievous, with Batgirl making an offhand comment that she'll check with Waller later to make sure Harley got back.

    And if she didn't? And if she killed someone in the meantime? Or if Waller had never let her out to begin with, and she somehow escaped and disabled her brain bomb? (Which makes more sense than "furlough.") And I've heard some people say, "Oh, it probably wasn't really a deadly virus at all!" But that's just readers letting her off the hook the same way Batgirl does - there's nothing in the story to indicate it, and Batgirl never checks.

    What I really don't like about Harley is that - because she's such a marketing success outside the narrative setting of the DCU - the superheroes inside the DCU do not treat her as the dangerous villain she is. Possibly fatal bioterrorism is so cute, y'all! She has a plot distortion field that makes some of my favorite heroes into idiots.

    Ginger Wally West in Heroes in Crisis, for deciding it would be a great idea to make transcripts of superheroes' therapy sessions public. Apparently so that, once ordinary people see that even heroes need help, they'll get help too.

    I know people get down on him for a lot of things he did in HiC. I do too. But, y'know: it was an accident! Or, he only framed them temporarily! And so on.

    But the therapy sessions - that was just a terrible betrayal of his friends who decided they needed help. That is how you retraumatize people who are already traumatized. How you humiliate decent human beings. It's like revenge porn.

    And it was dumb. Yeah, maybe some people would say "Hey, if heroes need help, then it's okay that I do too!" But I'm willing to bet that even more people would say "Hey, if even superheroes - with their supertech and their supersecurity and all that - can't keep their therapy sessions private, what hope do I have? I'm not going to go tell some therapist my deepest, most embarrassing secrets just so somebody can release them on the internet! No way!" So I don't even think it would have the effect he was going for.

    (That is the effect he was going for, right?)

    Yeah, surprisingly, that was the worst part of Wally and HiC to me. Although it had competition.

    I was reading JLA: Superpower and Kyle Rayner in that oneshot comic made me think of this. Like where the writer seemed to have an intent to make the character come off unlikable. The characters in the story seemed to be annoyed by him notably Batman and Aquaman and by the end of the comic Superman as well
    Where do I start?! This happens all the time for me, usually when a writer wants to "improve" the character in some fashion that doesn't work.

    Hippolyta in The Contest/Challenge of Artemis. This was actually my first exposure to the character, so I had a pretty unfavorable view of her for several years as a result.
