    Eh, for me that just ties in with "hero goes bad" - hate the premise of that one, and am never going to like it no matter what (but it must sell well, because it happens over and over and over again). The brainwashing is just a "get out of jail free" card for it. But I don't care, because I hated the entire thing, anyway.

    Superman going any kind of evil.

    A big secret that will change something or someone forever.

    The dead parent(usually father) of some characters is revealed to be evil or at least not as good as before.

    These especially, I get it Batman was an edgelord under Miller's pen; but allow him to grow. Let Bruce love and be loved by his extended family.

    I am also tired of seeing Supes going evil how many times can we have that.

    Well, Year One Batman wasn't an edgelord. Dark Knight Returns Batman was much older, wearier, and slightly more deranged, so it doesn't really makes sense to ape that in modern Batman.

    I think the only Aquaman story told more than that is Orin conflicted about the throne

    For me, it's not heroes going bad that bothers me. It's villains going good.

    When a villain becomes a fan favorite, they all of a sudden become a hero, or at least, antihero. Then, they often join a team as the "badass" member. e.g. Juggernaut, Sabretooth, Venom, Harley Quinn. Of course, who could forget when the Eradicator joined the Outsiders and they started to call him 'Rad. Ugh.

    Other ones:

    - Doomsday coming back. He was a one-shot villain and after Superman 75 should never have been seen again. Part and parcel with this are stories where a writer tries to piggyback off a classic story -- Bane will break Batman again! Phoenix Force comes back! Another Judas Contract! Another Great Darkness Saga!

    - Any Crisis after Crisis on Infinite Earths

    - Any type of "Spider-Man No More" story -- especially the ones that go on for an extended period. Part and parcel with this is the "hero gets replaced" story.


    I don't know if there's any repeated storyline or plot device that I do like come to think of it.

    Let poor Donna have a story that isn't her origin getting redone for the 10th time.

    Let poor Obsidian have a storyline that isn't him just going evil/getting controlled for the 10th time.. especially since the rationale for it kept getting worse each time they brought it up. Hell I think Johns cycled through like 3 or 4 rationale before settling on one by JSA #50.

    Let Damian keep his character development instead of being an jerk only to get close to a character and soften up only to meet somebody new and have to learn to not be an jerk all over again.

    The more Superman and Batman have to defend their no killing rules against strawmen, the more it seems like DC is just really insecure about that rule.

    Magic is dying.

    Teen superheroes dying.

    C-list heroes being treated as inferior in-universe despite their canon feats and experience.
