For me in no particular order:

1. Cable and everyone from his timeline.

2. The Phoenix Force...I just loathe any story where it's a crucial plot point.

3. The O5 X-Men

4. Cassandra Nova...she was just a bad idea.

5. Left over Age of Apocalypse characters. It was a great story. I don't want to ever see any of them again.

6. X-23 (the concept just seems silly to me...always has)

7. The deaths of the original Generation X members. I always thought Skin's death was particularly unfair and depressing. He was just thrown out like trash.

8. Madelyne Pryor's descent into evil. I really didn't like that. She was made evil to justify Scott being a crappy husband who bails on his family. I liked Madelyne fine when she wasn't evil.

9. The slaughter of the Grey family at their family reunion. That was really f*cking depressing and I don't think I've ever been more disgusted with a story. The story even has Jean Grey's mother dying hating her daughter. Hate hate hate it.

10. Hope Summers

Honorable mention to other things I hate: Old Man Logan, that whole Revanche storyline, kid Apocalypse, anything third Summers brother related and Moira's death.


Also:

- the nonsense about Nightcrawler & A(rcha)ngel being part of two different kinds of mutant sub-species who looked like demons & angels.

- the nonsense about Xorn's return.

- Sage/Tessa retconned as a mole working for Xavier.

- Danger as a character (the AI is less interesting than when it was, well, a training room).

- Everything written about Excalibur after Alan Davis left the book.

- Inferno

- the Psylocke/Revanche mess of a story

- Cyclops killing Professor X

- Mikhail Nikolaievitch Rasputin
