I find it difficult to argue with any of the entries on this list.

Wolverine, yes sheer over exposure has indeed been a problem for him and many other characters over the years.

Deadpool: yep, I agree wholeheartedly.

Prof X. agreed.

Jubilee: oh yes, very much agreed.

Wolverine: I really don't hate him. I just haven't liked what most writers have done with him since about 1993.

Cyclops: Yup.

Pixie: Yup.

Gambit: Yup.

Emma: I don't hate. I just don't like her as a remotely heroic character.

Jubilee: Hate is too strong a word, but nothing about her registers with me. To me, she will always be the vastly inferior Kitty replacement-- a bubblegum-chewing mallrat with sparkle powers. Mkay. Not what I'm ever interested in reading about. IMO, her depowered New Warriors and vampire stuff were a big improvement, but it still doesn't endear her to me.

Deadpool: He is not cool. He is rarely funny. He is not interesting. And really doesn't do interesting things. The only way I can accept him is to not take him seriously at all. At which point, he's worthless. IMO

The rest of the list I adore.

Too bad they didn't include Fantomex and Doop. And sorta Boom Boom (she's too much like Jubilee, but her Meltdown makeover was a slight improvement to me), although she's not even popular enough to rank on any list.

City of Heroes is BACK!
