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.

-all the returns of the Phoenix/Jean

-Centire Morrison Run

-All the X-Men movies (except FIRST CLASS) and the black outfits

-Xavier as the X-traitor/Onslaught

-Madelyne Prior

-The Cable timeline w/all the Askani, various summers, etc (but I would keep Cable himself as a foe of apocalypse/legacy virus, etc)

-Corsair as Cyclop's father. Never liked the starjammers in general

-Wolverine's son, daughter, whatever.

-Old Man Logan

-AoA leftovers
