    Default DC storylines/plotpoints you're tired of seeing re-hashed...

    * Superman loses it after Lois dies.

    * Superman is put upon/has the weight of the world on his shoulders.

    * Green Lantern disagrees with the Guardians and rebels against them.

    * Hawkman gets a series that is nothing but issue after issue of an exposition dump regarding his origin.

    * Slaughtering Teen Tians/Titans characters during a...a...>YAWN!<...oh, excuse me...during a crossover event.

    Yours? Thanks!

    * Superman going evil and attacking the Earth
    * Guardians of the Universe being idiots

    I suppose we could have a contest for first GL storyline that introduced the theme.

    My suggestion for first would be when Hal Jordan took down the entire corps on his own..one of my thoughts at the time was “How competent can the Guardians be if one GL can take down everyone else?”...it was like an army so inefficiently led that one soldier could take out everyone else.

    Lex Luthor convinces the world *again* that he's not a bad-guy and gets elected Mayor/President/whatever.

    Someone threatens the throne of Atlantis. Probably Ocean Master, again.

    Darkseid belches up another swarm of para-demons and attacks Earth, only to lose for the fiddy-billionth time. He never learns.

    The Legion of Super-Heroes get reimagined in a completely new AU where some of them are different races, and they will never manage to reach the popularity of the original dated cast.

    Booster Gold goes through an arc where he matures from a self-aggrandizing publicity-seeker to a more heroic wiser experienced stance, but people still tend to judge him by his first appearance as a bit of a show-off. Which they should, since he will reset to factory default the next time he appears, a few years later...

    Jason's eternal plot "Joker killed me, I revived, I'm broken and nobody helps me"...writers should read Lobdell's Red Hood.

    Also "Damian is going rogue again and he needs to show he is a hero"

    Betrayal, team dysfunction and characters getting killed off for shock value in TT/Titans.

    Batman treating everyone like crap and being a 'broken hero who can't save anyone and makes everything worst'.

    Superman goes evil.

    Cyborg questioning his humanity.

    - Evil Superman (including just temper tantrums where he goes berserk and flattens every other hero at once)

    - Superman is dead or incapacitated or missing or erased from existence, so everyone is screwed because absolutely no one can fill the void of his absence or do anything without him

    - Batman can take out the entire Justice League by himself

    - Heroes getting mind controlled or possessed so other heroes have to fight them

    - The Amazons (and sometimes Wonder Woman herself) hate men and need to learn that #NotAllMen are bad

    - Wonder Woman's origin and backstory getting mangled and retconned for arbitrary reasons

    - Crisis events where continuity is overhauled

    - Quasi-meta stories where DC's bad writing and editing is explained away as part of some new cosmic villain's evil plan

    Previously unknown things from the past. Siblings, parents, lovers, secrets, etc. It’s lazy.

    Multiversial threats that are going destroy everything. I’d prefer if they scaled the threats down to a more universal level for a while.
