Comic characters you follow even when they have terrible runs

After a certain amount of time as a comic fan, you begin to see that not all stories and runs on a character are created equal. Have you ever found yourselves buying issues of a comic book just because it has your favorite character in it, regardless of how good or mediocre the stories and art are?

This has happened to me most recently with:

Batman Beyond
Wonder Woman
Howard the Duck

Batman, generally only reading it for the Bruce/Selina 'shipping, and if she says no to Bruce I'm dropping it. Tom King seems to struggle with this book.

The Flash and Titans...for some reason, they've decided that to be a Flash means you have to suffer.

Justice League...Hitch is hot/cold, hit/miss, but mostly cold and mainly miss.

I don't have this much of an issue with Spider-Man, as I unironically enjoy the daily comic strip and love that Renew Your Vows is a refreshing alternative to the rudderless deconstructed ship that is the core continuity.

Super Sons, though at this rate it may as well be a second Teen Titans book

Runaways, its the series that got me into comics so even if its crap I'll still read it hell I even brought a few trades of Vision, Powerman and Luke Cage, and Avengers Arena just because they had some Runaways characters like.
