While I can't say I've seen it myself, some people think that he's got a weird affectation towards villains. The claim is that he makes them all (the ones he writes) too sympathetic when some of them have traditionally been evil monsters.
My problem, though...I wonder just what happened to him. His Teen Titans run was great to read, but his New52 JL run isn't as much. It's not without some value, but it's just...missing something. I've liked is Aquaman run, though, even if he reused that scene from Brightest Day when Arthur's brow proved how bullet resistant he is.
Though I wonder who exactly thought Captain Marvel needed to be rebooted the way he was. I didn't care for the retelling of his origin, mostly because, while it was well told, it didn't seem to fit the character and why people got to like him in the first place. Yes, the Big Red Cheese is campy and corny and so on, but that's what people liked about him. His New52 look, makes it seem like he's going to ram an electrified fist down someone's throat. At least Batman Beyond retains that quality...
