We know DC has a weird 52 fetish, but what don't they like?

Well...we already know some of the things they hate--Spoiler, Nightwing, hope, optimism, happy people. But there's a word they apparently find abhorrent. See if you can guess, courtesy of James Robinson via WC.

The writer wanted to do "Justice Society," but said that DC said "society" was a word the publisher wanted to step away from.

So if you fans of Earth 2 have been wondering why they haven't done it yet, this may be your answer.

While I've never been a fan of the "of America" tag (especially when a lot JLA & JSAers weren't American and most of their adventures were set in other places), For decades I've only ever really referred to them as the simply "JSA".

Society doesn't even enter it.

The word "abhorrent" or any version of it was never used in the source article.

Hope no one's holding their breath for a return of the Secret Society of Super Villains...

Yeah, seems like Robinson may have misspoke.

Sense is another thing they don't like.

Well at least they still like having three Robins (the second fun-loving one doesn't count) but they still don't like more than one Batgirl.

They also don't like characters being in-character. The DCnU is merely the culmination of this.

Variety? I prefer DCs cast of assorted characters, but after a couple of years it's all a bit one-key for me. I'm enjoying Marvel's Ms. Marvel, Secret Avengers, and Hawkeye a great deal, and I wish DC would try something a little different than grimdark bleakness.
