Name some comic book characters that you think is really cool, but for some reason you just can't get into their comics...

Hulk, Wolverine and Wally West...

I have no idea where to start.

Black Panther for me. I'm sure there's a lot more, but he's a big one.

Edit:

Ghost Rider, too. And Punisher.

Basically anyone who's a Marvel Knight that isn't Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, or Spider-Man.

X-men, have no idea where to even start. Plus the amount of titles that are available.

Wonder Woman and Thor for me. I really like the concepts of both characters - royalty turned superheroes with mythological aspects - but for some reason I feel no motivation to read their comics. I mean I enjoy them in their respective team books (JLA and Avengers), but I don't have any compulsion to actually read their soloes.

I loved the Wonder Woman animated movie, but it didn't really prompt me to pickup any comic. And despite all of the praise for Thor's recent God of Thunder series, I still don't want to pick it up. I think it might have something to do with these two being too fantasy and not enough superhero for me. I know this is mostly a generalization and there are exceptions, but that's the way I feel, however odd.

Iron Man...I can read the stories if I like the writer but the average Iron Man story will have me quitting half way through. Can't read the Marvel 52 stuff but the Fraction and Ellis stuff did hold my attention.

I'm trying to read the Wolverine titles, but after a while I realize he's everywhere anyway so who cares?

#17 Posted by Tacos_Kickass (844 posts) - - Show Bio

Anything in Marvel, although I do enjoy Superior Spider-Man. Ive been wanting to get into some Avengers stuff but there's like a million different books, New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Bi-curious Avengers, there's just too much and don't even get me started on Wolverine...

I would really like to like Namor. But I find his fans to be straight up obnoxious and rude. True, I am a huge Aquaman supporter, but it seems its illegal to like both. And its pretty sad that fans are keeping me from liking the character.

Martian Manhunter. It´s insanely hard to find something about him in my country.

Haha, this for me too. I can't get past the "Can create anything he can think of", "runs 18 times faster than the speed of light", and "Requires plot devices Kryptonite, Blue Sun radiation, and Magic so that he isn't invincible."

Where is the drama in this? Why do they even need teammates?

Pretty much every Marvel character except Loki,Dr Strange and Beyonder.

Most DC characters (I know them, but it's been a while). Mostly because the New 52 makes me get a "DEAD END" feeling, like I'll get that. Lots of interesting seeming people been retconned, stories possibly unfinished, etc. It might be a bit nonsensical, but yeah.

There are a lot of characters who I think are Totally Crash but I just can't get into their comics... why? because it cost money to buy comics.

#39 Posted by gunmetalgrey (1267 posts) - - Show Bio

(Normal, plain old) Jean Grey. Seems like a cool character on paper, but I found most of the stories that focus on her to be pretty meh.. She was a lot more interesting as Dark Phoenix.

Yeah, I've been really meaning to pick up JMS' run on Thor (since I'm already collecting Brubaker's Cap and Fraction's Iron Man, so Thor kinda completes the trilogy). But somehow other comics always get in the way! I'll get around to it eventually.

Black Panther. Avengers: EMH got me interested in him but Marvel NOW isn't featuring him enough (unless I'm missing something) for me to get committed. The same probably goes for Punisher. Oh and Silver Surfer, he's popular among so many people but I just don't see whats so special about him.

Hellboy/BPRD universe

Seems really cool, just have no clue how to approach it.

Both Hellboy and B.P.R.D. have trades and big collections that are numbered.
