    Default What Corner of the DC Universe Do You Have No Interest In?

    Are you a big DC fan but show no interest in a certain type of story, genre, or character they publish?

    Anything magic related. I don't know why, since I also really love fantasy, but I just hate it when superheroes and magic mix. I barely tolerate Captain Marvel.

    I used to shun anything Green Lantern-related, but it's grown on me over time...

    Superman

    He has just never grabbed me as a character and feels like he leans too much into the soap opera tendency in comics.

    I was a huge fan of DCs cosmic heroes and races. Then they killed off of sacked everyone that wasnt a Green Lantern and turned the Lanterns into a rainbow.

    Legion of Superheroes. Westerns.

    John Constantine. Ironic because I love the magical side of the DCU. It's rich, diverse and brimming with potential but ever since the Nu52, John has felt like this barnacle stuck on the side of DCU. Give other characters room to breath!

    Anything western or romance.

    Not that DC publishes anything in either realm... but if they did I can guarantee you I'd avoid it!

    I can't stand Constantine, for some reason, and I really have no idea why. I've never read any of his stuff, but I have watched stuff with him in it, like that Justice League Dark: Apocolips War movie. The character just doesn't appeal to me at all.

    Legion of Superheroes: Don't care.

    Lobo: Don't care.

    Wonder Woman: Don't care anymore. I tried reading her stuff in The New 52 but I didn't like the story or the art, so I stopped reading it.

    Superman: Don't care anymore. I used to collect his books back in the early 90's during the whole "Triangle" period (where you knew which issue to read next). I liked those stories from that time period. I remember one Action Comics cover where Superman was holding open the mouth of a dinosaur. Good stuff.

    Batman: Don't care about his comics anymore. I used to collect his books during the Alan Grant/Norm Breyfogle era because I loved Breyfogle's art.

    Cyborg: I've never been drawn to the character at all.

    Damien Wayne: No, just no.

    Harley Quinn: No, just no, Part II

    Green Arrow: I just can't get behind a dude who shoots arrows all day, even if some of those arrows are trick arrows or arrows designed to do different things when they hit you. It's the same reason why I've never felt the need to read about Marvel's Hawkeye character.

    The New Gods: I don't worship them, as I've never felt the need to read any of their stuff.

    Shazam: Nope. I did watch his movie, though, which was alright.

    There's usually at least one aspect of any corner of the DCU that has the potential to pique my interest, but Shazam's whole world and family do nothing for me. (I have a soft spot for Mr Atom because I had a comic with him as a kid and who doesn't like killer Robots? But I wouldn't buy a comic with him now)

    Rann and Thanagar. The hawks are okay characters at best, but the world they came from isn’t that interesting. Adam Strange just seems like a bunch of 1950’s “space man” cliches thrown together.

    Honestly, none of the above. There are some parts of the DCU I like more than others, but none I actually dislike.

    Its variety is one of the things I like about DC. Kamandi, Pow Wow Smith, Hourman, Cave Carson, Groilla Grodd, Ma Hunkle, The Trigger Twins, The Silent Knight, Space Cabbie, The Weather Wizard, The Spectre, The Green Lantern Corps, Cheetah, Booster Gold, Zatanna, Slam Bradley, Vandal Savage, The Atom, John Constantine, The Sandman, Braniace, Task Force X, Kalibak, Deadman, Power Girl. DC has room for all of it. Even if putting it all together is messy.

    Legion of Superheroes: I loved their show as a kid but I never could get into them in the comics. I love Tyroc tho #Justice4Tyroc

    Anything focused on Lois Lane or Jimmy Olsen: you will never convince me any solo material with them isn't forced and/or purely nostalgia driven.

    I don't know about Jimmy, but personally I didn't find her YA novel trilogy forced at all. Certainly not for every DC fan (YA for a mostly female demographic, but I personally really dug it), but not forced or nostalgia driven.
