    Green Lantern... maybe that's because the other spectrum colors are still so underdeveloped and not used properly, and I am not as interested in just the Green Lanterns to keep following their adventures.

    Ooh, great choice. I agree. I know they sell well, but I'm at the point that I actively avoid Events. Not saying I won't ever read any, but it would take a lot of good word of mouth from those I share tastes with to make me do so.

    Seconding all mentions of Harley Quinn. Only character I’ll drop a book if she so much as guest stars in it.

    I don't drop books, but I do skip issues. I am also generally wary of any story featuring Deathstroke, since they long ago decided to say he was honorable or whatnot. Though that's typically more an issue with older things. I just skip any known villain/hero team ups except maybe Catwoman or Trickster (I can pretend she's still the non-killer she was introduced in that couldn't get the respect of other villains, and while I like the nastier Flash rogues of pre-COIE, I gotta admit to a soft spot for the semi reformed Trickster of a certain era).

    Uh, I do the same. In my DC universe she doesn’t exist.

    Flash. I like Wally, Jessie Quick, XS, Jay, and Impulse but don't care at all for the Speed Force or the Flash's villains.

    War comics
    Actually, I like whatís going on with justice league dark at the moment; Jason blood is getting center stage instead of the demon, and I need to reacquaint myself with Ragman. Donít understand the appeal of detective chimp, though.

    The future, because we'll never reach it
    Alternate future, because it's even more unreachable
    Dark future, because we'll never reach it AND it's been done to death.
    Likewise alternate dimensions

    Mainly though it's because there's enough to keep up in the present that my brain has no capacity for the alternates

    So even just outer space can count

    So unless the present heroes or the heroes where the story mainly take place visit those alternate time and spaces, I'm not interested

    The past is fine because it's building foundation or reveal on the present, like it's the history of the world and characters

    Can relate. I also loved the show back then. The Direct-to-DVD/Streaming movie "Justice League: Trapped in Time" was also super fun with its take on Karate Kid and Dawn Star, and I wish there was a sequel that the stinger implied there could be. And I was actually digging and getting to Brian Bendis' take as well.

    But The Legion of Superheroes is notoriously gatekept a micro-fandom, such that there's no room for any takes or discussion or expression of fondness for anything that isn't the fandom-approved one. And there doesn't seem to be any form of real consensus divergence. And that's a huge turnoff. It makes you not even want to be bothered, which is largely the case for me.

    For me personally...

    Teens/Young Justice/etc. Although I watched the Teen Titans series as a kid, I can't stand the teen settings anymore. I don't mind teenage characters, or kids for that matter, but I don't like high school drama and all that mess, even if it isn't a "normal school", or is purely done in Superhero format. I'm an adult, I stick to soap opera drama .

    Flash I've never liked any incarnation of the Flash, I can't put a finger on why. It always bothered me a bit, because I love everyone else out of the "main" DC lot, so I always feel like I'm missing out.

    JSA/Legion Big teams like this bore me, because characters just don't have a chance to really make a splash. It gets complicated though- I've always loved Power Girl, but pretty much everybody else from the JSA except Star Girl either bore me, or just don't get enough out of them to find anything I care about.

    Was never a big Legion fan at all. And some of the more grounded war comics, like Sgt Rock, never did it for me. Now Creature Commandos and whatnot, I can get behind.

    Also, the grittier/more badass a character is, the less I care about them. I like Batman fine, but I can't read things like Deathstroke or Midnighter...they just kind of make me roll my eyes.
