Which comic characters do you think have not fulfilled their full potential in terms of having good stories told with them or not been used as well as they could be?
For example Batman has a lot of good, great, and classic stories. Probably the most of any major character. Dark Knight Returns, Batman Year 1, The Long Halloween, The Killing Joke, etc. And Superman has Man of Steel, Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? Superman For All Seasons, his role in Dark Knight Returns, and Kingdom Come was mostly about him.
But Wonder Woman if you had to pick her best stories what would you list? Kingdom Come, the George Perez 80's revamp? Not that much else to choose from. You'd be even more hard pressed to list the best Hawkman stories or the Atom. Green Arrow has the late 60's early 70's run with Green Lantern and the Mike Grell run.
Marvel characters also have a very limited best of (after the Lee/Kirby/Dikto years): Daredevil probably has the most. Thor has the Walt Simonson issues, Captain America has surprisingly few. Some really like the J.M. Dematteis/Mike Zeck run/The Kevin Maguire mini/ and the Ed Brubaker run but are any of those great or just pretty good? His Ultimate version is surprisingly good considering what bad/shallow/shock value addicted writer Mark Millar tends to be.
